AutoHunter Spotlight: 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible

Restored convertible equipped with replacement Muncie M21 4-speed manual

-

Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online collector car auction driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible that’s been in the same family for the past 40 years.

“First launching in 1964 on the General Motors A-body platform, the GTO was initially an option package for the Pontiac LeMans and later became a standalone model in 1966,” says AutoHunter on the GTO’s listing.

This example was subject to a body-off restoration between 2011 and 2012 in which the convertible was repainted in the factory shade of Fontaine Blue and given a replacement, power-operated white convertible top. The body also wears quad stacked headlights, hood scoops, bright moldings and trim and a dual exhaust system at the rear.

Take a virtual test drive in this GTO by watching the video below:

“The interior was refurbished with correct Parchment vinyl seating and door panels, contrasted by replacement black carpeting and Pontiac-branded floor mats,” the auction adds.

Additional interior amenities include a faux woodgrain trim, factory air conditioning, push-button radio and a cue ball shift knob.

Power comes from a rebuilt 389cid Tri-Power V8 that was overhauled during the restoration. The engine is linked to a Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission which replaced the car’s original 2-speed automatic.

The odometer shows 70,761 miles, although the seller notes true chassis mileage is unknown.
