1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible (Dammerman Collection) #229
In 1966 the highly successful Pontiac GTO became its own model series with a significant redesign. The GTO body was redrawn to the familiar curving lines of the “coke bottle” shape with minimal chrome trim. The headlights were stacked at opposite ends of the split grill with GTO badging.
This car features the Tri Power 289 cu. in. V-8 which produced 360 h.p. The transmission is a floor mounted automatic. Tri Power refers to a system of three double barreled Rochester carberators which dramatically improved the performance of the standard 289 cu. in. V-8.
A two door convertible with white vinyl interior and bucket seats, this car is painted in a dramatic maroon that seems to fit the GTO styling perfectly. The interior features white vinyl bucket seats and a bench seat in the rear. The convertible top is also in white.
If you love muscle cars this is a great example of the GTO is its early days.
