The Pontiac GTO was born as the result of a team of dedicated auto engineers and designers deciding to find their way around GM's ban of divisions from participating in auto racing. Three men – John Z. DeLorean, Bill Collins, and Russ Gee decided to create a street performance car that, ostensibly, customers could take racing if they desired. After all, what customers did with their cars once they had bought them was entirely their own business. The GTO was born for the 1963 model year. Based on the Tempest, it packed a large V8 and basically invited owners to take it racing. This particular 1966 Pontiac GTO Coupe underwent a full restoration, including a new paint job, which was completed in 2017. With 43,000 miles on the clock, it's a lovely classic and a piece of American history with a few refinements to make it a reasonable daily driver if you choose.
This 1966 Pontiac GTO Coupe shines with a glorious luster as the sunshine bathes its bright red paintwork. The car comes with the original GTO badging and sports new chrome parts. It's also got period-correct wheels, which wear new BF Goodrich tires that are just waiting for the V8's instructions. The current owner tells us that the floor pans are new units as well. Inside, you'll find a cabin that reportedly sports new black leather. Four can travel comfortably thanks to two individual front seats plus a rear bench seat. The driver faces a lovely wood-trimmed instrument cluster that includes a speedo, tacho, fuel gauge, and more. We also see two auxiliary gauges mounted low down in the center console. The car reportedly comes with its original radio but also packs aftermarket air conditioning for a comfortable cabin on hot days. You'll also find a reasonably spacious trunk behind the passenger cabin.
This 1966 Pontiac GTO Coupe has got the iconic 389ci (6.4L) V8 waiting to rumble and roar. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox and a 3.23 rear axle ratio. The car also comes with power steering and power brakes to further ease your driving experience.
