1966 Pontiac GTO

GTOs remain at the very top of the muscle car hierarchy, nd this gorgeous 1966 GTO hardtop shows off a very careful restoration of a very solid, riginal car. If you appreciate these cars as they were and not as the mythology would have us believe, hen this one will delight you every time you get behind the wheel.The GTO is one of the few muscle cars that can also be considered elegant. While they were great at tearing up tracks all over the country, hey were equally adept at carrying executives to the office and showing up at exclusive nightspots for front-row parking. The code D Fontaine Blue paint only enhances that image, pplied over a laser-straight body that any car guy can recognize from 100 yards away. Stripped down to its bare essentials and rebuilt from there, t's the kind of car that only gets more attractive the more you look at it and makes the cars around it look shabby by comparison. Modern paints provide a great shine, ut that only comes with hours of intensive hand labor, ut nobody will argue that the results aren't worth it, ecause this car looks great with only a few signs of age and use. And as you'd expect of a car like this, he chrome and trim were restored, he GTO badges are bright, nd the glass has the proper vintage Soft-Ray tint. Even the white vinyl top was replaced and it's just dazzling today. For purists, t just doesn't get much better than this in terms of high-quality driver-grade GTOs.Few interiors are more inviting than the GTO's, nd with bucket seats and a center console, t emphasizes the Goat's dual nature. Reproduction seat covers duplicate the original intricate ribbed pattern, here are correct carpets on the floor, nd fresh door panels don't show so much as a mark from a driver's elbow resting on the sill. All the gauges have been rebuilt and nestled back into their round pods in the woodgrained dash, nd they're all in good condition with clear lenses and clear markings. The factory-issued AM radio works, oo, lthough it needs to be reconnected to the antenna; besides, ou'll probably find the entertainment connected to your right foot to be far more suitable anyway. And yes, hat's a 4-speed shifter sticking out of the center console, o it's a blast to drive. In back, he trunk has been expertly finished and topped with a correct mat and full-sized spare with jack assembly.The engine is a correct WS block with the proper coding, o we believe it to be the original 389 cubic inch V8 with Tri-Power. Pontiac knew its customers would be spending a lot of time under the GTO's hood tuning and tweaking, o they added plenty of eye candy for the genuine car guys who'd be owning them. Every mechanical system, ncluding the engine, ransmission, ear end, uspension, nd brakes were fully rebuilt and only driven enough to ensure that everything is in fully operational condition (about 500 miles). Pontiac Turquoise contrasts nicely with chrome valve covers and individual air cleaners, nd they got all the little stuff right, oo, ncluding the reproduction decal on the fan shroud. Underneath, he floors are perhaps a bit too nice, ut that's hardly a demerit, nd the exhaust system is a Flowmaster setup so it sounds spectacular. The only major addition is four-wheel power disc brakes, ndowing this Goat with stopping power to match its performance. Stock steel wheels with polished trim rings are framed by 225/70/14 white-letter radials for a great performance look.Documented with restoration photos and PHS paperwork, his is a high-quality GTO that runs and drives superbly.
