Rare "barn find" 1967 convertible 4-speed 1 Year, 10 Months ago  
Okay, guys & gals, if you're into '67 Pontiac's and don't mind a little work, this is the one to have!

I got a call today from Paul Sindle in Knoxville, TN. He is selling a '67 project car, in storage since 1986. According to Paul the car has the original motor w/4-speed in it. The engine suffered a bent rod in a drag race, but was completely rebuilt (.030 over bore) and has zero miles since. Engine starts & runs. Equipped with rebuilt factory disc brakes ( first year available - an option, I believe), and still has the original "disc brake" wheel covers, which Paul claims are very hard-to-find).
The car needs a new top, new upholstery, restoration of bright work. Solid floors & trunk, but some body rust ( probably needs a new right fender).
Reportedly this car was featured in a 1969 edition of "Hot Rod Magazine".
Asking price = $7000. Sounds reasonable, considering the engine/trans is worth that much.

This is a rare car. According to my records Pontiac only made 1768 2+2's. Of these only 137 were convertibles w/manual transmission, and only 144 total (coupe & convertible) had the H.O. motor w/4-speed.

Here are figures for currently registered cars:
30 1967 cars total (13 convertibles, 17 coupes)
12 originally HO motor-equipped
7 originally HO motor w/4-speed (4 convertibles, 3 coupes)

Contact Paul @ 865-859-0609 or email at paul@diverseworldwide.com.

He's supposed to send some to me, but call him directly for quicker response.
Happy hunting!

I sent for the PHS on this and the car is not an H.O. like originally thought. The pics I received show the code on the block "WG" which would be appropriate for a car with a manual transmission but not that of an H.O. Also received a scan of the title showing a lienholder so waiting to hear back if he has something releasing the lien from the car. We'll see what happens...

Thanks for the update.
My original post has been corrected to reflect the WG motor ( I left the production data on H.O. cars for informational purposes). I was going by the seller's description - ALWAYS good to check PHS when buying.
