Classic Car Overview
Heres a 1966 Pontiac GTO tribute convertible with a great color combo, four on the floor, and a big V8 with ultra-desirable tri-power on top. So yes, its time to get excited. Convertibles are some of the rarest classics around, and so it takes extra time and effort to get the right one for this GTO tribute (remember, Ford basically produced more Mustangs within two weeks in 1966 than Pontiac made LeMans convertibles all year!) But what you really like is how fatefully this one showcases the best of the GTO. After all, we all love a muscle car finished in red. It looks great against the form-fitting bumpers, bright bezels, and full-length rocker trim. And this has all the right high-performance details like the hood scoop, fog lights, badging, and the correct intricate tail panel exclusive to the GTO. And not only do you get Pontiacs iconic Rally II wheels, but also theyre mounted on classic redline tires that really go nicely with this cars color package. If you like the way the black convertible top looks against the red exterior, then with the flip of a switch, youll love powering it down to reveal the full black interior. There was a nice investment here, and you can tell by the condition of the seats, carpeting, and door panels. And while youll love to show off the interior with pride, its also set up to be a great drivers machine. Thats why you have a bucket seats with a center console in-between, Hurst shifter, and a dual-spoke steering wheel (power steering) that gives you a clear view to all the gauges. There are even nice upgrades like a cleanly installed auxiliary readout trio and a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo w/digital tuner. Under the hood is the best of what the first-gen GTOs offered. After all, everyone flocks to see the triple air topper setup thats the unmistakable sign of three dual-barrel carbs for tri-power. And beneath that is the 400 cubic-inch V8. Pontiac would never offer its largest V8 and tri-power at the same time, but this tribute delivers it all. The V8 runs strong, and it makes a terrific growl out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. Best of all, you are in complete control over this power and its thunderous soundtrack with the Muncie four-speed manual transmission. The sale comes with some additional original components, including the original radio. This is the powerful Pontiac package in rare droptop form youve been waiting for. So dont let it slip away, call today!
