This 1966 Pontiac GTO is the real-deal hardtop power machine that was also meant for driving. After all, you not only get the big V8, but also an A/C interior and an upgraded overdrive transmission. So it's time to enjoy a legend to its fullest.
<br><br> The '66 GTO is a great car to show of its sporty nature. Stacked headlights in the front, a hood scoop, and bright dual exhaust tips announce it has some muscle. Plus, they even upgraded this one to competition-style Cragar wheels. But there was also style here, too. Chrome bumpers that hugged the form and a flying buttress rear give this some upper-class style. And the factory-correct Palmetto Green is a distinguished color. It has a nice look, but nothing too fancy that you'll be afraid to take it out on a whim...this is all part of a package that's meant to be enjoyed by drivers.
<br><br> The black interior is quite inviting. There were more recent investments in the seats, carpet, door panels, and headliner to keep this feeling fresh. There are also the right comfort features in this Pontiac. For example, the AM/FM radio is iPod compatible. Plus, the factory air conditioning is blowing nice and cold. So feel free to roll down all the windows and go cruising in this pillarless hardtop even in the summertime. And you especially like this GTO for its driver-oriented package. You get bucket seats up front with a center console in-between. The wood-rim sports steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and beyond that a is a full round gauge package with large speedo and tach.
<br><br> The big 389 cubic-inch V8 is a big reason for the GTO's success in starting the muscle car craze. So it's great to have a well-presented version in the engine bay. And while this looks like a stock-style setup, right down to the turquoise block, keen eyes may spot the upgrade. Under the polished air topper is a newer Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor to help this V8 inhale properly. And this mighty motor exhales with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. It's the kind of package you'll want to enjoy near or far, and so it's great to have an upgrade to a 2004R four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, power steering and power brakes make for a nice all-around cruiser.
<br><br> This sale comes with service manuals and Pontiac Historic Services documentation. This is a real-deal GTO that is done so that you can really get to drive it. If you like to enjoy your classics to the fullest, call today!
