1966 GTO 389

 

This gorgeous GTO has received a complete professional frame off restoration and has been meticulously maintained.  It was delivered new to Madray Pontiac in Jesup, GA.

The original color of Cameo Ivory was re-sprayed after the body was completely stripped to bare metal.  The end result being a laser straight body with a mirror like finish with all hood, door and trunk gaps having a better fit than when it left the assembly line in Pontiac, Michigan.

The interior is on point as well, receiving a complete re-upholstery duplicating what the GTO originally came with.   The crystal clear gauges are awesome and everything on this exceptional GTO works as it should.  Even the original AM push button radio!

When viewing the underside, you will appreciate the level of detailing and it is as clean as it gets.

Once you open the hood, you will find a highly detailed engine compartment with a 389 CI 360 hp with the exclusive WS assembly stamp and the highly sought after tri power set up.  It also has the Muncie 4 speed transferring the power to the Safe T track posi rear end with the 3.55 gear ratio.

Almost forgot to mention the working factory air conditioning which is great for those hot summer cruises!!

According to the PHS docs, this GTO came with the 389 YS, 4 barrel engine with an automatic transmission.  This was upgraded to a date code correct 389 CI 360 hp WS engine along with the date code correct tri power system and Muncie transmission.

The front brakes were upgraded to disc brakes at the time the frame off restoration was done.  Everything on this GTO was done to the highest standard and it shows.  It is essentially a brand new 1966 GTO that is 54 years old!

In summary, this is an exceptional car that was meticulously built and maintained.  You will not be disappointed in this highly optioned GTO.
