The Pontiac GTO is considered by many the first true muscle car. Whereas other manufacturers were concentrating on their fullsize lines, ontiac saw the potential for dropping a big block engine into an intermediate frame and marketing it at a budget price. Pontiac sneaked past the GM restriction on this combination by making the GTO an option on the Tempest model, reating the hottest performance machine yet.

The GTO sold in great numbers and would fuel the competition between GM, ord, nd Chrysler that would keep the muscle car industry thriving for years to come. The GTO would later evolve into the Judge, n extroverted option package of the GTO, nd would continue the tradition until the GTO disappeared in 1974.

The GTO package included the 389 V8, uick steering, ual exhaust, nd premium tires, bargin at just $300. The 389 cid engine came with 325bhp with a single 4bbl carb or 348bhp with the optional Tri-Power setup, 2bbl carbs which was pushed to 360 by 1966. Pontiac hoped to sell 5,000 copies, hey ended up selling 32,450. The car that was marketed under a Tiger motiff but soon became known as the "Goat" would stand the automobile industry on end and lead to a host of imitators. But no one in the mid-sixties would get it together quite like Pontiac. The success of the 1964 model prompted Pontiac to improve the GTO for 1965. Front and rear styling were changed with the GTO getting stacked headlights like Pontiac's fullsize models.

Pontiac made the GTO its own model for 1966 and was rewarded with sales of 96,946 units, he highest ever for a true muscle car. Like 65 The GTO was restyled again for 1966 with gorgeous coke-bottle contours with the roof and taillights receiving the most attention. Engine choices remained the same until mid-year when GM banned multi-carb setups for all cars except the Chevrolet Corvette. This car presented here was ordered with the desirable engine option available the 360 hp 389 V8 with 3x2’s.
