A blue on blue droptop is thought of as a casual cruiser...but you can still have a mean streak in this 389 V8and#44; four-speed 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible. Best of all this drop top is not only in its original color comboand#44; but as you dig deeperand#44; it will be hard to find anything out of placeand#44; including that burly V8.<br /> <br><br> There are many reasons why youre going to want to take this GTO out for a driveand#44; but one of the main reasons is how good the paint looks. This is an exceptional re-spray of the factory Barrier Blue. Its perfect for a sunshine-friendly droptop as the daylight hits modern cleracoat and makes an amazing shine. The paint also showcases just how much was invested in keeping the panels looking greatand#44; with uniform gaps and doors that close with authority. Of courseand#44; everybody knew not to mess with the GTOs by 66and#44; so Pontiac gave it bold touches like the vertical stacked headlightsand#44; big chrome bumpersand#44; hood scoopand#44; and narrow sporty taillights shared with the best Pontiacs on the road. All of it is fantastically presentedand#44; and you can tell this has been in the care of those who understood how significant this car really is.<br /> <br><br> Those who like the blue exterior will be especially happy with the interior. The level of factory originality on this bucket seat convertible is amazing. The survivor quality on the blue vinyl seatsand#44; door paneland#44; and dash alone are the kind of condition you only see on the most cared for convertibles. The wood paneling center console with Hurst shifter provides an upscale feel that was a GTO trademarkand#44; and the quad-pod instrument panel give this GTO a touch of European elegance. This car has a true blue personality right down to the included convertible boot. But anytime you want to add some more colorand#44; just hit a switchand#44; and the white folding roof will lift into place – an elegant touch when you want to portray your nice guy personality.<br /> <br><br> Of course no matter how nice you want to appearand#44; theres a ferocious tiger under the hood of this GTO. The 389 cubic-inch V8 is a true legend in Pontiac circlesand#44; and so we are so glad to see it presented so well. Correctly detailed with corporate turquoise engine paint and chrome valve coversand#44; it shows all signs of being the original motor. Below the large air filterand#44; youll find a four-barrel carburetor feeding the big V8. The rumble that this package creates is a sweet symphony thanks to the FlowMaster dual exhaust. Best of all youre the conductor of this concert thanks to the complete control from the four-speed manual transmission. So even if you want to be the quiet nice guy out cruising on the weekendand#44; it only takes one downshift to let out the beast within.<br /> <br><br> This is a highly cared for GTO that even comes with the right documentation like the owners manual and original warranty card. Its this kind of overall package that you dont see too often (66 GTO convertibles were about seven times rarer than the hardtops) so dont miss your chance. Call now!!
