This 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible is the rare muscle car drop-top
with the full dark appearance and a mean enhanced V8 under the
We always love coming across these first-gen real-deal GTO
drop-tops. It's a rare treat compared to many of the others out
there. After all, a Mustang convertible is a special machine, and
they made about six times more in of those in 1966. The dark blue
paint was added later in life, and it's for those who like a little
more attitude than the factory cream white offered. It really seems
to fit with all the added intimidation these GTOs offered. The
stacked headlights stretched out to the sides, wide chrome bumpers,
bright dual exhaust tips, and a factory hood scoop all instantly
remind us who the granddaddy of all muscle cars is.
The black convertible top has a nice tone against the deep blue
paint. So if you like the way this looks, then you'll be happy to
flip a switch and watch it power down to reveal the full black
interior. Ample back seat space means there's plenty of room for
family and friends, but as a true GTO, this one is really all about
the driver. That's why you have a bucket seats with a center
console in-between, a sporty full round gauge package, and there's
even cleanly installed auxiliary readouts under the dash.
Under the hood is an era-correct V8 for this low serial numbered
drop-top. The 389 cubic-inch motor has been built with the right
go-fast goodies, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock
intake, HEI distributor, and headers. The V8 runs strong, and it
makes a terrific growl out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. The
TH400 three-speed transmission is an ideal mix of stout
construction and easy automatic shifting. Plus, there are more good
driving features, like power steering, power brakes, and wide
modern tires to give this a fine presence on the road.
Here's powerful Pontiac package in rare drop-top form. So don't let
it slip away, call today!
