Fully Restored, California Car! Pontiac 389ci V8 Engine w/ Tri-Power, Power Disc


1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible

VIN 242676P275828

This beautiful GTO Convertible was originally a California Car. The previous owner bought the car out of Arizona after he had it professionally inspected, and then shipped it to Michigan. The car was restored in 1997, just before he bought it in 1998. He had kept it in a temperature controlled garage and took it to many car shows and events. At the time of the restoration the vehicle was completely gone through. It had an Oldsmobile engine in it when he bought it in 1998 but he has since changed it and replaced it with a 389. Copy of the California Title, PHS Documentation, GTO Association of America Concours Judging Forms, and a black and white vintage photo are included in the sale.

History of the 1966 GTO

The Pontiac GTO is an American automobile built by Pontiac Division of General Motors from 1964 to 1974. The first generation GTO was a muscle car classic of the 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.

The GTO became a separate Pontiac model (model number 242) in 1966, instead of being an "option package" on the Tempest LeMans. In addition, Pontiac's intermediate line was restyled, gaining more curvaceous styling with kicked-up rear fender lines for a "Coke-bottle" look, and a slightly "tunneled" backlight. The tail light featured a rare louvered cover, only seen on the GTO. The GTO became a separate model series, rather than an optional performance package, with unique grille and tail lights, available as a pillared sports coupe, a hardtop (without B-pillars), or a convertible.
