Description:

You know that a design is timeless when it looks as fresh and aggressive today as it did when it was new, and that''s certainly the case with this pretty 1966 GTO hardtop. Very tastefully modified, it''s still a fast, fun street machine that''s as popular today (perhaps more so) than it was in 1966. If you drive a GTO, your intent isn''t to keep a low profile, so why not get a bright red one? The hardtop body wears the vivid red paint like James Bond wears a tuxedo - it just looks right. For many, the 1966 models got everything just right, from the stacked headlights to the "flying buttress" C-pillars to the restrained use of chrome and trim, and there''s simply no way anyone who knows anything about cars won''t recognize this Goat as an apex predator. Finish quality is very good, so you''ll have no qualms about letting anyone take a good, long look. Up front, Pontiac''s traditional split front grille is framed in bright trim, along with the requisite GTO badges in the grille, while from behind you''ll get a set of handsome taillights and a pair of big, chrome exhaust pipes sticking out underneath, a not-so-subtle reminder that this ain''t no stock Goat. But I suppose by the time anyone notices that little detail, it''s already too late. Inside, the changes are a little more pronounced, but it all works quite well in the vintage GTO cockpit. The most noticeable upgrade are the deeply bolstered black sport bucket seats, although their vertical pleats give them a look that seems at home here. The wood-rimmed steering wheel also looks vintage, but the thicker rim is easy to grab and feels great in your hands. All the instruments are factory-issue and are in original condition, and an under-dash temperature gauge augments them. GTO-logo floor mats, a B&M shifter, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit are the only other modifications, making this car an easy one to get familiar with. In back, the bench seat has a fresh reproduction seat cover and the door panels look newer, too. The spacious trunk is finished with correct spatter paint, a reproduction mat, and carries a Rally II wheel and a new BFG spare tire. The only powerplant you want in your ''66 GTO is a 389 cubic inch V8 dressed in Pontiac Turquoise paint. Augmented with an Edelbrock high-rise intake and carburetor, it still looks fairly authentic with its chrome valve covers. A big aluminum radiator takes care of cooling, while a new power master cylinder handles the 4-wheel disc brakes. The engine bay is nicely detailed and clean, but not over-done, so it adds to the low-profile look of the car. Underneath there''s a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission feeding the original 12-bolt rear with a soundtrack by Flowmaster. The underside is tidy, not detailed for show, but nice enough that you''ll never think twice about it, and those gorgeous 17-inch Torque Thrusts look exactly right. Newer 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear Kumho radials have been fitted as well. With the original seats available if you want them, this vintage Poncho neatly straddles the line between restored and modified and remains 100% fun. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
