A real-deal 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible restored in the correct colorsand#44; Hurst four on the floorand#44; and an enhanced 389 V8 heart. A machine like this is built for show and goand#44; and so it will never disappoint.<br /> <br><br> We could start off by telling you how rare these 66 GTO convertibles areand#44; but you probably already know that Ford basically sold more Mustangs in a week than Pontiac produced droptop GTOs that year. Refinished in a vivid coat of its factory-correct R-code Montero Redand#44; this restored droptop looks terrific in the sunlightand#44; which is exactly what a car like this was born to do. You can really tell there was investment that went well beyond the paint to make sure the body was looking its best. Pontiacs subtle hood scoop hints at the power underneathand#44; and the bigand#44; bright chrome bumpers are great reminders of Pontiacs wide track design. This one has all the right factory piecesand#44; including the badging on the front fendersand#44; callouts on the rear fendersand#44; and the aggressive stock wheel package with matching redline tires. So yesand#44; this GTO is all about the bold confidence of an iconic appearance.<br /> <br><br> You get to choose the best of both worlds on this GTO. The white folding roof gives you a classic two-tone appearanceand#44; or when you want to be open to the worldand#44; the factory-correct red interior gives the whole car a very rosy disposition. Theres more evidence of a quality restoration when you lay eyes on the stellar condition of the bucket seatsand#44; fresh carpetingand#44; and the crisp door panels with correct GTO emblems. Aiming for a touch of European feel in the GTOand#44; Pontiac designers gave it a wood-grained dashboard that houses the round gauge clusterand#44; heater/defrost controlsand#44; and correct AM/FM radio. This goes nicely with the wood on the three-spoke steering wheel. And while your left hand will enjoy the power steeringand#44; your right one will likely never want to leave the Hurst floor shifter.<br /> <br><br> Pontiacs famous 389 cubic-inch V8 is the powerplant that made the GTO an icon. Presented exceptionally well in the engine bay with the correct turquoise paint on the block and intake. Butand#44; it also doesnt forget to add flair with the bright air cleanerand#44; valve coversand#44; and alternator. It also gets to breathe deeper than from the factory thanks to an Edelbrock 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor. The tidy presentation tells you it has been well-maintainedand#44; and they way it fires up with ease gives you real confidence in this convertible. You really get to enjoy this V8 to the fullest thanks to the control of the four-speed manual transmission. But more than just hear the crackle of this muscle cars exhaustand#44; take some time to look at where it comes from. The undercarriage photos show you how clean the car is all around and just how extensive the restoration was to this rare droptop.<br /> <br><br> Weve got a ton of receipts showing you just how much timeand#44; moneyand#44; and effort went into making this the perfect turnkey show and go GTO. It even comes with the original bill of sale so you can tell its origins story. With a package this attractive youre going to want to hurry up and call today!
