The name GTO is an abbreviation which General Motors borrowed from Ferrari and some other Italian sports car companies of the period. The literal translation of GTO is Gran Turismo Omologatto indicating that a car wearing this label is perfectly suited for high speed and long distance touring events. The GTO was conceived by General Motors by installing its largest engine in a mid-size car which was the Tempest. This 1967 Pontiac GTO is powered by the 400 cubic inch, V-8 engine. It features an automatic transmission and a rare, factory installed air conditioner. It was sold new in Memphis, Tennessee.
