Anyone interested ? (GTO)

Someone has done some badge engineering on it by putting a GTO emblem on the deck lid.

The tail light panel is for a LeMans not a GTO. Both LeMans and GTO shared the basic platform but the tail light panel was different between the two models.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Yup, throw a hood on it and instantly is a GTO.

I see a battery shut off in the right corner. Musta been someone's race car at one time(battery in truck mandates a shut off). Likely why it sat under a shed for all these years with no motor in it. The ol 326 gave up the ghost!!

I agree with what's been posted,definately NOT a GTO! this is a mid-trim level Le Mans or Tempest with GTO sheetmetal and badging. I did the very same thing with my 67' Tempest,bought a wrecked GTO front clip/hood and had "instant GTO" might still be worth the effort,as these cars are getting scares,just don't be fooled into thinking this is a genuine Goat,a basketcase GTO goes for 25K nowadays!...............................Mark

It will cost you $30,000 to make that a $20,000 car if you do a bunch of the work yourself....Maybe more. Didn't the 66 have the rear quarter gills like the 67 tempest/Lemans cars? Those are gone too. Looks rusty to boot...It might be a good parts car to save a real 242 Goat...I bought a 67 lemans in Maine two summers ago for $1200 for parts. It looked rough but salvageable to some. One guy asked me while I was fueling the truck if I was going to restore it. I told him no I was going to cut it up for parts...I think I made him sad but my GTO needs quarters...Love those Pontiacs...

To many "Clones" of muscle cars foisted on the unknowing buyers.

Definitely a Lemans or a Tempest. The taillights are an immediate giveaway. Here's what the 1966 GTO taillights look like.

Different rocker trim also. Paul
