Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer this stunning 1966 Pontiac GTO for sale. This GTO for sale has gone through an extensive amount of restoration. Starting late Summer and going through the Fall of 2016, the entire engine compartment was completely restored back to original. The work was professionally done by one of the National Concourse Judges for the 1966 GTO, the President of the Southeast GTO Association as well as the cars 12-year owner. During the restoration process several pictures were taken to verify the authenticity of this 1966 GTO. This is when the engine number was verified and the XE engine was unique to the California Car. The numbers matching 389 small block V-8 engine still has the original rear main rope seal. Both the carburetor and air cleaner assembly, with the enclosed system leading back to the oil cap on the driver's side valve cover, are unique to the California engine in this California GTO. There are several other engine components that can easily be seen upon casual inspection. Even the voltage regulator along with the engine coil are original. Both exhaust manifolds are original, and the original throttle cable is present and still maintains the red tape on its tip from November 1965! The crown jewel of this motor, however, is the original Air Injection Reactor (AIR) Emissions System. Most people would remove this as it took away horsepower making this part very rare and hard to find. This system has been deveined, so it will not pull air as it originally did which compromised horsepower. The factory 2-speed Super-Turbine 300 Automatic Transmission, power steering, power brakes and Radio-Pushbutton have all been verified and has full PHS documentation. With only 27,610 actual miles this is truly a rare and valuable GTO. Painted in the factory Montero Red showing R-R on the engine tag along with black trim (interior) which was 223 on the engine tag. Several key things were pictured during the restoration of the body such as the original chalk marks that were written by the line workers building this GTO in the factory. Another unique aspect that makes this GTO even more rare is the fact it was built in the Pontiac, Michigan plant. It was very uncommon for a California car to be produced outside of the Fremont, CA plant and shipped to California with compliance equipment installed. Any single attribute, whether being numbers matching, a black plated CA car manufactured outside of the Freemont plant or how it still maintains the Air Emissions System all make for a rare GTO. Having all these attributes along with low actual miles makes this 1966 GTO for sale extremely rare. The full PHS documentation, original window sticker reproduced by Pontiac Historic Services and the original license plate from original Dealership the car was purchased are all included. Also 7 extra air filters are included as they are very rare and hard to find. There is way too much information about this car to be able to list everything, so please call for more details.
