Right Maintenance: 1966 Pontiac GTO

1966 Pontiac GTO

This Goat was found in Philadelphia and was purchased from the second owners who supposedly couldn’t provide the “right maintenance”. Well, the new owner apparently thinks they provided it by getting it running and so they are now selling it on. I’m guessing they couldn’t provide the right something though because it doesn’t sound safe enough to drive round the block. There’s lots of rust in the body, but the interior does look really good. The seller mentions that it’s YS-code car and that just means that it has the base 389 4-barrel and an automatic. Still respectable, but nothing out of the ordinary for a GTO. The seller has it listed as a 3 day auction and bidding is only up to $6k with less than a day left, so it still might end up being be a good buy. Take a look here on eBay and let us know what you think.

    Hands down 66 GTO’s were the one to have.take this car,I would bore the engine to 421ci,add tri-powerp,then a 4-speed trans,limited slip diff with 3:56 gears. Next I would replace/upgrade the brakes to disc all around. And finally,a set of hurst wheels,complete with redline tires . Now that would be a true tin Indian.

    I love the 66 &67 Goats . I think the seller is purely going on what it is.. the snow tires tell me it was a year round car at one time ( not unusual for the time) Looks to be once a vinyl top car , would need a better look at the roof . rust repair makes me cringe where there is a little, most likely there is lots more . Somebody could make a nice street car out of this .. Love the color combo

    Looks a lot better than the 67 I found. This one could be saved and if it’s truly a numbers matching car and if the bidding doesn’t go much higher it’s a steal. These cars in good condition and numbers matching for around 30 to 35K, 4 speeds with tri power sell for a lot more. I’ve own 2 67’s and you have to watch the back glass area as behind that trim is where a lot of rust exists and will cause a leak in to interior or trunk. Good find.

    sounds like another person who bought it for a song and a bucket of fried chicken and will make a tidy profit flipping it, nothing special about it, plane jane car and not worth the $6300 bid on it.

    I know this car, sat here near Philly for a couple years. No one would touch it, needs everything. Seller claims “Little rust” I would disagree. Pictures make it look much better than it is. Someone will be very disappointed.

    Hmm, the previous owners were incapable of maintenance but you can’t even be bothered to change the belts. You’re a prince.

    This is my favorite GTO year and I agree with everything that’s been written so far. It’s always hard to assess a car like these without better photos of rust areas, floor boards and data plates. I’m not sure why sellers don’t make a full disclosure about issues that will easily be uncovered when the buyer arrives.

    I had a tri-power 4 speed car years ago. Wish I never sold it. Bought it out of a barn in Brocton NY. Had been in the barn since 72 when the owners son wrecked it. This was twenty years ago.
