Second owner drove the cars for years before the engine developed a bearing knock. The engine was thenremoved to check damage. The car was put into storage in 1989as future project, life happen,retired & moved south.
Since my recent purchase I put engine back into car to show it isnearly complete. The engineneeds rebuilt & does not run.

Data plate shows this GTO was manufactured on the 03 D or March 4th week of 1966. Very nice original GM chrome air cleaners & valve covers. Even the original spring clamp battery cables survived. Original unrestored tri-power shows difficult to find vacuum linkage with survivor gold coloring on the carburetors.
