The first-generation Pontiac GTO models were produced in 1964-1974 and considered to have confirmed the muscle car trend with all four domestic manufacturers involved. In the 1964-65 model years, the GTO was an optional package for the Pontiac Tempest model or "Grand Tempest Option". The GTO became its own model from 1966-1971. The GTO was selected Motor Trends "Car of the Year" in 1968. The GTO model was later revived from 2004-2006 as a rebadged Holden Monaro manufacturer by GM Monaro subsidiary in Australia. The GTO was equipped with 5.7L LS1 V8, the same engine found in the 2004 Chevrolet Corvette. Power was increased in the 2005-2006 models to 400hp and 400ftlbs of torque courtesy of the LS2 364.1cid powerplant. This Phantom Black Metallic 2006 GTO represents the last and best of these unique vehicles. The owner reports 31,400 actual miles and the gorgeous black leather interior shows quite well. The impressive LS2 powerplant is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and Dana 44 rear end. Features include power everything, AM/FM/CD, Traction Control and Keyless Entry. Recent mechanical service includes new performance tires, struts, shocks, springs, brakes and clutch. This exceptional GTO is located at our Milwaukee showroom.
