Fast Facts
The year 1967 was a bit of a quirky year for the GT package. For starters, it was the only year to distinguish between manual and automatic transmissions-stick shift cars received the GT designation in the rocker stripes, while automatics were emblazoned GTA. Either way, the gas cap read GT. As far as power, any of the available V-8 engines would suffice, including the C-code two-barrel 289. This was a notable change from other years of GT production ('65-'66), which mandated four-barrel power. Since the C-code 289 used a single exhaust, these cars didn't receive the quad tips which are normally seen on '67-'68 GTs.
