This 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible is powered by a 400ci V8 equipped with triple carburetors and paired with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. It is finished in red with a power-operated white soft top over red vinyl upholstery, and features include power-assisted front disc brakes, power steering, an Aurora Design AM/FM radio, a Hurst shifter, and polished 15” Torq Thrust wheels. The car was acquired by the current owner in 2015, and subsequent work included refreshes of the interior and power steering system, an overhaul of the engine and power soft top mechanism, and replacement of the radiator and front springs. This GTO is being offered on consignment by the selling dealer with service records from current ownership and an Ohio title in the name of the owner’s family trust.
The car was finished from the factory in Montero Red (R1) and is equipped with a power-operated white soft top, which was rebuilt and re-covered in 2015 by Goller’s Hot Rods of Defiance, Ohio. Exterior details include quad headlamps, a hood scoop, GTO badging, and dual exhaust outlets. The passenger-side taillight lens, various pieces of weatherstripping, and the front fender badging and rear tail panel badging have been replaced.
Polished 15” American Racing Torq Thrust wheels were installed during current ownership and mounted with BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires measuring 215/65 up front and 245/60 out back. A full-size spare is found in the trunk. Power-assisted front disc brakes were installed in 2015, along with 1/8” front wheel spacers and a replacement power steering box, pump, hoses, pulley, and front springs.
The cabin has been lined with Dynamat sound deadening material and houses front bucket seats and a rear bench trimmed in red vinyl with a matching dashboard and door panels. Red loop carpets and rubber mats line the floors, and appointments include lap belts, a center console, and an Aurora Design FMR-1 AM/FM radio. Work in 2015 included replacing the seat bottom springs and refurbishing the center console and dash bezel.
The wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel was refurbished in 2015 and fronts a woodgrain-accented dashboard that houses a 120-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and combination gauges. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 82k miles, though total mileage is unknown. The speedometer face has been replaced. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tremec five-speed manual gearbox equipped with a Hurst shifter. The clutch fork spring and Z-bar were replaced in 2015.
