The current owner of this 1966 Pontiac GTO Roadster is the third total owner and he has enjoyed it since 2002. He informs us that this one was stripped down to bare metal a few years back and painstakingly restored from the ground up, including a power coated underside and rebuilding or replacing almost every component of this muscle car. While all the body panels are original, you’ll find a brand new interior, essentially a brand new/rebuilt drivetrain, suspension, braking system, trim work and power top. It shows excellent in person and could almost pass for a brand new classic- the few signs of wear that we found were almost negligible compared to the overall quality and curb appeal of this build.
Additionally, the performance of this 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible is excellent at virtually any speed. In dyno testing is produced just under 300 horsepower and 350 torque to the wheels, and you feel every bit of that power on the open road. This one handles like a dream and it will stop on a dime, meaning that you can really turn this beauty loose and enjoy it as it was meant to be enjoyed. You won’t find this level of refinement very often in a classic this desirable.
Possibly the Steal of the Year at this Price Point
Overall, this 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible is one of the most prestigious examples we’ve seen in years with a sensational build and mirror-like custom paint work. This muscle car is picture perfect in person and it will easily be one of your favorite classics in the garage- don’t let it slip away at this outstanding asking price.
