Fully restored - Protect O Plate - Factory Correct Color combination - 455ci V8 - Highly optioned from the factory - Factory Air -Power Steering, Brakes, Windows - (If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, it's possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors) Garage Kept Motors is pleased to present this beautiful 1966 Pontiac GTO 2-Door Hardtop Coupe for consideration. The car has been fully restored and remains highly original with some very desirable factory options. It also has the original owner Pontiac Protect-O-Plate, which we've never seen available in a classic GOAT. The car has been fully gone through by our mechanic prior to posting it for sale. It is turn-key and ready for a new garage. Mr. Arthur Picariello, born in 1910 and resident of Philadelphia, PA, purchased this car brand new at the ripe age of 56. At some point, the car came to Michigan. Our client acquired it in 2014 and started the restoration process. In 2017, the car was resprayed in factory original Candlelite Cream (code Y) with a brand new black vinyl top (code 2) installed. The interior remains original standard Black (code 223) with bucket seats and center console. The original 389 motor was replaced with a 1970 455ci V8 that was professionally rebuilt by Performance Engineering, mated to the original Automatic Transmission with center console shifter. It was also upgraded with Pontiac Ram Air exhaust. As stated, this car came heavily optioned from the Framingham Assembly Plant. According to the PHS documentation and Data Tag Codes, the car has the following: Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Factory Air Conditioning, Pushbutton Radio with AM/FM and Electronic Antenna, Verba-Phonic Rear Speaker (included with sale), Custom Seat Belts, Electric Clock, Rally Wheels, Custom Sports Steering Wheel, Console, and Safe-T-Track Rear Axle. Many options here and hard to find, especially combined with others, like power windows and AC. It is also unheard of to have the original Protect-O-Plate with original warranty book and owners manual. Priceless documentation to accompany this car. This is a gorgeous GTO and one of the most desirable model years. The car has been completely restored without any excuses. An incredible classic Pontiac at a reasonable asking price.
