A blue on blue droptop is thought of as a casual cruiser...but you
can still have a mean streak in this 389 V8, four-speed 1966
Pontiac GTO convertible. Best of all this drop top is not only in
it's original color combo, but as you dig deeper, it will be hard
to find anything out of place, including that burly V8.
There are many reasons why you're going to want to take this GTO out for a drive, but one of the main reasons is how good the paint looks. This is an exceptional re-spray of the factory Barrier Blue. It's perfect for a sunshine-friendly droptop as the daylight hits modern cleracoat and makes an amazing shine. The paint also showcases just how much was invested in keeping the panels looking great, with uniform gaps and doors that close with authority. Of course, everybody knew not to mess with the GTOs by '66, so Pontiac gave it bold touches like the vertical stacked headlights, big chrome bumpers, hood scoop, and narrow sporty taillights shared with the best Pontiacs on the road. All of it is fantastically presented, and you can tell this has been in the care of those who understood how significant this car really is.
Those who like the blue exterior will be especially happy with the interior. The level of factory originality on this bucket seat convertible is amazing. The survivor quality on the blue vinyl seats, door panel, and dash alone are the kind of condition you only see on the most cared for convertibles. The wood paneling center console with Hurst shifter provides an upscale feel that was a GTO trademark, and the quad-pod instrument panel give this GTO a touch of European elegance. This car has a true blue personality right down to the included convertible boot. But anytime you want to add some more color, just hit a switch, and the white folding roof will lift into place - an elegant touch when you want to portray your "nice guy" personality.
Of course no matter how nice you want to appear, there's a ferocious tiger under the hood of this GTO. The 389 cubic-inch V8 is a true legend in Pontiac circles, and so we are so glad to see it presented so well. Correctly detailed with corporate turquoise engine paint and chrome valve covers, it shows all signs of being the original motor. Below the large air filter, you'll find a four-barrel carburetor feeding the big V8. The rumble that this package creates is a sweet symphony thanks to the FlowMaster dual exhaust. Best of all you're the conductor of this concert thanks to the complete control from the four-speed manual transmission. So even if you want to be the quiet nice guy out cruising on the weekend, it only takes one downshift to let out the beast within.
This is a highly cared for GTO that even comes with the right documentation like the owner's manual and original warranty card. It's this kind of overall package that you don't see too often ('66 GTO convertibles were about seven times rarer than the hardtops) so don't miss your chance. Call now!!
