Default Chris “Originals” 1966 GTO survivior!

Another brand of vintage Muscle Car.

An unrestored “True Survivor” - Factory Cameo Ivory Paint with Red pinstripe, Factory interior and complete OEM powertrain.

I came into possession of this 1966 Pontiac GTO in 1991. I actually first discovered it in 1980 sitting on a used car lot in San Jose, Ca. but was unable to secure it and shortly after it disappeared.
At this time the Factory Paint was beautiful.

My lucky day came on 7-24-91 when at my work in the field I accidentally found it stored on the side of a house. The owner had covered the interior with thick cardboard but left the exterior (for about 3 years) exposed causing some sun bake on the topside.
I attached a note on the car and within a week it was mine.

Built at the Fremont Ca. General Motors plant in the second week of January 1966.

Special order YR code (Tri-Power, Automatic) of which only 1759 were produced in 66.
It’s very rare to find one that still retains all the Factory Vacuum linkage (most of these cars were switched to mechanical linkage early on) because of the intricate operation.

Because this GTO was sold New in California it required the #614 option that consisted of a “Closed” PCV system (sealed oil filler cap with hoses to air cleaners) to recirculated the fumes.

Hope you enjoy this Survivor, Chris
