For Sale: 1966 Pontiac GTO in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Not many cars get enthusiasts excited like the Pontiac GTO. This 1966 hardtop, for example, offers all the right parts: 400 Tri-Power engine, an upgraded performance suspension, and a winning color black-on-black color combination. Professional builders took this real-deal GTO and tastefully modified it with top-of-the-line equipment, turning this legend into slick-built GOAT ready for the rigors of the modern road. The results speak for themselves, and now all this dialed-in beauty needs is a new home.

Refinished in drop-dead gorgeous Starlight Black (a huge upgrade over the car's original Candlelight Cream), this GTO looks the way Pontiac designers intended: sporty, maybe a little mean, yet very sophisticated. The stacked headlights are a slam-dunk in the history of automotive styling and among Pontiac faithful, they're highly-sought. Add in a subtle hood scoop and you get a car that has ALL the goods but doesn't feel the need to advertise too much. The good news is that when the car was restored, the builders took their time and get the bodywork straight first, then laid down a bunch of coats of that luscious black paint. The result is a straight, shiny GTO that shows quite well despite being driven and enjoyed a bit since it was completed. Think top driver-quality that will pretty much embarrass every contender at your local car show, but so nice that you'll be afraid to drive it every weekend. It has a couple flaws, but it wears them with pride knowing that the entirety of the package and this GOAT's off-the-charts curb appeal will overwhelm any concerns immediately. There's still plenty of chrome on the car (remember, this is the pre-Endura GTO) and things like the bumpers, rocker panel moldings, and grille surrounds are in excellent condition. It also features a lot of fresh weather-stripping so it seals up well and squeaks and rattles inside are minimized, making it feel tight and solid on the road. And that rear end is darn pretty even Jennifer Lopez is jealous of it.

Pontiac nailed the interior of the GTO in every way: comfortable, sporting, and refined, with just a hint of European sophistication, and all the builders did was add a couple spices to that original recipe. It is the interior that makes the GTO an adult's sports car, and the bucket seats, no-nonsense shifter, and flashy steering wheel all work towards that end. This blacked-out cabin sticks to that script, albeit with some choice upgrades: that's high-end leather upholstery on the seats, an upgraded T-handle shifter was neatly installed into a custom center console, and the leather-wrapped, bright chrome steering wheel at the head of the cockpit was mounted atop a tilt column. The instruments ahead of that steering wheel were upgraded too, with the original-style bezel filled with slick-looking, illuminated Dakota Digital digital/analog gauges that keep a very close eye on the powertrain. Options include a modern A/C system that utilizes modern hardware and R134a refrigerant (although it needs a service), an Alpine AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit that pumps tunes through an upgraded stereo system cleverly installed throughout the cabin, and between the upgraded seatbelts, GTO floormats, and even the padded storage console with it's lone cupholder, this Pontiac feels just right inside. The black carpets are plush, the matching door panels look new, and the taut headliner above proves that nothing was overlooked in this build. Out back, the trunk was outfitted with gray carpets, a thick black mat, and it houses a full-size spare tire.

The legendary 400 cubic inch Pontiac V8 makes big horsepower (a 350HP factory rating) and torque, particularly thanks to the three two-barrel carbs living up top. With correct mini air cleaners, shiny valve covers, and Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block itself, it's quite nicely done under the hood. The engine bay is incredibly clean and look right, even the firewall and inner fenders were neatly painted and detailed, and new components like the modern power steering system, new wiring harness, and giant aluminum radiator up front don't stand out, but rather look like they belong. Stock cast iron exhaust manifolds and a Magnaflow H-pipe dual exhaust system give it a baritone sound and you'll note that the underside is gorgeous, finished to the same level of the rest of the car. The suspension was upgraded with sporty components from Ride-Tech to help plant it to the road, the 3-speed automatic transmission handles all that power without wasting any RPMs, and the heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end is darn near bulletproof. Wilwood power front disc brakes stop this GOAT on a dime, and it's perfectly stanced atop a bright set of American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in 215/60/15 front and 265/60/15 rear BFGoodrich radials.

If you want a great-looking, great-driving GTO that was built right, then this is a fantastic choice Offered with a big ring-binder full of build receipts, its original owner's manual, and factory Protect-O-Plate, this GOAT is an absolute winner. Call today!
