This 1967 Pontiac GTO, seen recently in the Town of Lockport, is from the second year of what ended up being a two-year styling cycle. GM’s intermediates proved to be very popular in the mid-1960s; the two-door hardtops were especially handsome with their extended roof sail panels which blended into the trunk area. Like the rims? We learned from the brochure, “The Rally II wheels cost extra, but not as much as you think.” Pontiac marketers were mind-readers! I, however, am not, and had to (unsuccessfully) Google the name of the seating surface material — All-Morrokide. I’m guessing it’s a fancy name for vinyl. If it was anything like the vinyl in my ’79 Monte Carlo, it was freezing in the winter and you could burn your shorts-clad legs on it in the summer. The good old days!
