1966 Pontiac GTOA real-deal 1966 Pontiac GTO with 400 V8 and four-on-the-floor will already get your attention. After all, it's the kind of muscle car you want for neck-snapping performance. So what you'll love to see is the big receipt file from the last few years that shows they invested in keeping this hardtop a powerful and hardy machine.
This coupe has been with the consignor for the last five years. In that time, there are plenty of receipts documenting quality work on the car. This includes over $10k invested in a respray of Arrival Blue Metallic. It gives a modern tone and shine to this classic Pontiac. This deep gloss is also a great way to show off the crisp body panels that prove this is a well-done example of a substantial muscle machine. The intimidation is in the details with the extra-wide shining chrome bumpers, vertical stacked headlights, hood scoop, flared rear end, and narrow sporty taillights shared with the best Pontiacs on the road. And those 17-inch American Racing five-spoke alloys give you an essential upgrade that you want on a driver's classic, and at the same time, they have a hint of that stylish classic Hurst wheel appearance.
Inside, the feeling of a premium restoration continues. The black color is factory-correct and a great choice for a muscle car, and it has a good look on the seats, headliner, and door panels with correct GTO emblems. It's easy to share this classic thanks to plenty of room for family and friends. But you already know you don't need any of them to have fun. It's a driver's machine with front bucket seats and a Hurst shifter in the center console. The classic dual spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the sporty round gauge package featuring a large speedo and tach, and there are even essential auxiliary readouts cleanly installed under the dash. So while the factory AM radio is still working, you really know your favorite sounds happen when you roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and let the exhaust roar.
What will impress you most is under the hood. The turquoise block, bright air topper, and chrome valve covers give this some flair. Pontiac fans had to wait for '67 to get the larger 400 cubic-inch V8, but this classic rectifies the past. Not only is there a larger powerhouse than stock, but also it inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Weiand intake. It exhales with added power and authority as headers feed the dual exhaust. The Muncie four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this GTO tiger and its growling soundtrack. In fact, we have receipts documenting the rebuild of the transmission, suspension, and 12-bolt Positraction rear end. So this one has a confident feeling when eating up the asphalt. And because this is a true street machine, it's easy to tame thanks to power steering, power brakes, upgraded front discs, and modern tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.
The sale comes complete with the reproduction window sticker, service manuals, maintenance records, and build receipts. The GTO started the muscle car segment, and the only thing better than owning the granddaddy of them all is owning a slick one that loves to run. Call today!!!
