1966 Pontiac GTO Muscle Car Restored

1966 Pontiac GTO Muscle Car Restored

One of the legendary American muscle car ready for new owner. The Pontiac Real 242 VIN GTO. 100% frame off nut and bolt restoration. Binder of documentation and receipts are included for documentation.

Detail about this GTO
New paint and new vinyl top (2012). Paint is very deep and shines for days. I would rate it 9.5/10. I would rate the interior 9/10. New carpet. New headliner. Everything has been replaced or correctly restored. All new wiring front to back. This car needs nothing. No squeaks or rattles. Everything works.

Owner have made into the restoration. Never been in rain, always covered and garaged. If you are looking for a numbers matching all original car, this one is not for you. This color combo is the best representation of the sixties muscle car era and accentuates the coke bottle shape of this model year. Built to be a safe daily driver (disk brakes, collapsing steering column, locking seat backs, electronic ignition, super duty radiator keeps car at 185).

Original color was Mariner turquoise and interior was aqua. Car was assembled at the Pontiac MI plant. Had the CA DMV assign the black plates to the car. Has been in Los Angeles for the past three decades.

Power steering and power brakes. Drives and brakes perfectly straight. Lots of power and torque. Automatic transmission shifts smooth. Very fast Pontiac 400 V8 Motor with a mild cam. Very nice growly exhaust note from the Dynomax mufflers and ram air exhaust manifolds. 2 inch drop in the front gives this beast a very aggressive stance.

Award winner and head turner. Be prepared for a lot of attention as everyone wants to stop and talk about it. Clear title in hand. Comes with custom Noah car cover.
