Now For sale in our Houston Showroom is this beautiful 1966 Pontiac GTO. This true 242 VIN car is a beauty & has undergone a thorough restoration with the paint job only being finished in late 2016. Powered by a Pontiac 400 CID V8 that is paired to a 700R4 3-Speed Automatic transmission with an electronic overdrive transmission. With the factory 3:23 gears in the rear and the factory 10" you will have a balance of performance and driveability on the highway without the high rpm freeway cruising. When you raise the hood on this GTO you will find a freshly-detailed engine bay hosting a dressed up big block waiting to take you for a ride. The Holley Street Avenger 770 feeds her all the fuel she wants through an Edelbrock Aluminum Intake while the Flame Thrower HEI lays down the spark through the distributor with its Street/Strip versatility. The Doug's Ceramic Coated Headers expel the spent air/fuel mix through the dual exhaust, which also has cut-outs for those special days when you want to set the neighbors' hair on fire a bit as you leave the neighborhood. The PowerMaster alternator upgrade ensures it will fire every time. Up front is a huge Griffin Radiator with twin fans and a Flow Kooler Water Pump to help keep coolant temp in check for those times when you get caught in traffic, or when you decide to unleash this girl to let her run. Of course, handling is always paramount, so you'll find Hotchkis upgrades on the suspension and sway bars. Powerful front disc brakes help haul things down from warp speed, and a set of Foose Wheels on all 4 corners serve to reduce unsprung weight, and they look great doing it. The black interior has been restored to its original glory, and the vinyl seats look like new. You will find the coveted his/hers shifter on the console. The original wood and chrome steering wheel is still there and looks great. This car will make any collector proud to own. Options on the car include; Vintage AC (blows cold!), power brakes, power steering, seat belts, vinyl interior & more. This beauty is located at our Houston showroom, and it can also be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For more information, email "Houston@GatewayClassicCars.com", or call (832) 243-622
