If you're a fan of style, speed and swagger, you simply can't go wrong with Pontiac's storied GTO. The goat practically defined the golden age of Detroit, and by the time its first production run was over, it had become the best-selling muscle car of all time. Not surprisingly, demand for these cornerstone classics continues to be strong, and in the first half of 2014 we shipped six awesome GTOs to six very satisfied owners. The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration, this well-documented hardtop is probably one of the coolest Pontiacs we've ever offered. With a correct drivetrain, solid sheetmetal and a correct Turquoise color combination, it's the perfect turn-key muscle car for anyone who enjoys cruising fast, wide and loud. If you're looking for an impressive classic that'll roll straight out of the showroom and right in to the fast lane, here's your chance to grab a tiger by the tail!
The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration, this super cool A-Body is a perfect blend of good craftsmanship and great attention to detail. With a solid body present and accounted for, the car was carefully straightened and sanded into better-than-new condition. Once that comprehensive metalwork transitioned from the garage bay to the paint booth, classic '60s panels were re-sprayed in their correct GM code K Gulf Turquoise. When that paint dried, it was sealed in clear and buffed to a clean, flat shine. And today, officially unleashed as the epitome of old school American style, this goat is one seriously cool head turner that can drop jaws just as easily as it can win trophies.
Tough, understated and attractive, this GTO perfectly defines Pontiac's lasting legacy of tempering sophistication with aggression. The front of the car is dominated by trademark, stainless-trimmed grilles that are anchored between stacked headlights, a pristine, satin-finish arrowhead and a body-width chrome bumper. Inside those grilles, a prominent “G T O” emblem hints at the performance bolted beneath a subtle hood scoop. At the sides of that scoop, expressive 'coke bottle' fenders hang dent-free wheel well trim and arrow-straight rocker moldings around correct chrome door handles. On the outsides of those fenders, bright red GTO crests combine with black “G T O” quarter scripts, creating visual excitement to match the car's visceral thrill. Above those crests, like-new glass combines with well-maintained stainless, straight chrome drip rails and correct chrome mirrors to highlight the car's awesome pillarless profile. And behind that glass, a second body-width bumper hangs integrated reverse lamps below a slotted valence, an ominous “G T O” badge and a small Hurst emblem.
Raise the car's long steel hood and the first thing you'll notice is a raucous 400 that's been completely rebuilt and layered in attractive Turquoise paint. Less obvious, of course, is that stalwart V8's correct 86133 casting number, November (K) 6th (06), 1966 (6) casting date and 335 horsepower, 4-speed-exclusive “WT” assembly stamp. A bored version of Pontiac's 'Trophy 389', this legendary block, which is good for 335 horsepower and 441 lb./ft. of pavement-charring torque, continued the brand's theme of producing purpose-built performance engines. Its big 4-barrel carburetor feeds a correct cast iron intake, which is bolted between attractive chrome valve covers. Fires are lit by a familiar points distributor, which jolts spark through 7mm Standard Triple Silicon Wires. Cooling is provided by a correct radiator, which sends water around a correct fan shroud via pliable hoses and traditional tower clamps. And charred dinosaurs are funneled through a nice pair of restored exhaust manifolds. At the back of the clean mill, you'll find a fresh brake booster that feeds a quartet of heavy duty drums. At the front of the engine, a Delco Energizer battery keeps the electrons flowing. And everything between the car's smooth, Satin Black fenders has been fully restored and looks great!
Logging sunny day miles since attaining collectable status, this goat's subdued floors and super clean frame are completely free of significant issues and major defects. The stout 400 sends power to a stalwart Muncie transmission, which is coded as a Muncie (P) assembled on October (R ) 11th (11) 1966 for the 1967 (7) model year. That proven gearbox spins a tough GM 10-bolt that's stuffed with gravel-busting gears. At the sides of that rock-solid drivetrain, aluminized, true-dual exhaust pipes connect the aforementioned manifolds with tough turbo mufflers. At the sides of that booming soundtrack, a fully rebuilt suspension is complete with factory-optioned power steering and heavy duty power drum brakes. Muscle meets the pavement via 15-inch Pontiac Rally IIs, which spin 215/70 BF Goodrich Silvertown redlines around chrome trim rings and red PMD center caps. And absolutely everything, from this Poncho's fresh stainless fuel tank to its clean Turquoise oil pan, is fully sorted and ready to pound the pavement!
Open this coupe's doors and you'll find a fully restored, and correct, GM code 220 Turquoise interior that's simple yet sporty. Front and center is firm bucket and bench seats, which feature bright chrome trim, cool pleated covers and era-correct lap belts. The engine's vitals are displayed by a rebuilt gauge cluster, which integrates round-faced dials and a correct Delco radio into a veneer-trimmed dash that's reminiscent of European sports cars. On the floors, like-new carpet anchors a chrome Hurst shifter and classy vacuum gauge inside a stainless-trimmed console and color-keyed floor mats. At the sides of the car, fresh door panels feature new chrome handles and straight stainless trim that parallels bright red GTO crests. In front of the driver, a satin-finished steering wheel spins an attractive wood ring around a Turquoise, Pontiac-branded column cover. And behind the passengers, a clean trunk sandwiches a correct jack and a full-size spare between a standard mat and prerequisite decklid decals.
The sale of this impressive A-Body includes a small brochure and documentation from Pontiac Historic Services.
This awesome GTO is an impressive muscle car that features an ideal blend of performance and style. Thanks to its correct drivetrain and professional restoration, it'll be an absolute pleasure to drive and show off. If you've been patiently waiting for the opportunity to pick up an excellent example of the ORIGINAL muscle car, here's your chance!
