Seven Hills Motorcars is extremely proud to offer this stunning 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible for sale in absolutely beautiful condition.  This car received a high quality professional frame off restoration about 15 years ago according to the previous owner.  The car still looks fresh and has been used very little since the restoration while being stored in a climate controlled garage next to many other prominent American classics.  The GTO is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Marina Turquoise over Parchment interior.  This GTO is an original California car that was produced in the Fremont, CA plant and then sold new through Jules Meyers Pontiac in Los Angles.  This was determined by the Pontiac historical society inquiry and shown on the PHS window sticker, pictured below.  PHS also confirmed that the car was ordered new with air conditioning, power windows, bucked seats, and power steering. 
Please peruse all of the photos to get a true sense of how nice an clean this GTO really is.

This Pontiac is a correct original 1966 GTO convertible, not a clone or conversion as verified by the VIN.

242676Z128049 - The first digit, "2," indicates the Pontiac division of GM.  The "42" is the model series, GTO.  The "67" is the body style, 2-door convertible.  The sixth digit is the model year, 6, correct for 1966.  The seventh digit, "Z," indicates the plant where the car was produced, Fremont California.  The last six digits are the final serial numbers.


As a side note, this Eldorado is not a dealer auction vehicle.  Our Cadillacs come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Eldorado, just give us a call.

about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette and Cadillac specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes and 1953 to 1976 Cadillacs. There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette or Cadillac. This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment. I do it because I enjoy it. I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me. I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

Exterior

The Marina Turquoise exterior paint on this Pontiac is in magnificent condition.  As one can see in the photos, the finish has smooth glass like finish, dazzling gloss, and deep shine.  The body is very straight with no notable dents or dings.  The chrome, stainless, and other bright work on the car is in great condition with a brilliant finish.  There are no major scratches, scrapes, or blemishes in the paint that have been excluded from the photos.  There may be some small spots and blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from five or ten feet away.  There is one tiny sport on the left front corner of the hood.  I have included a specific photo of the area to show how unnoticeable it is.  The convertible top is in magnificent shape with no rips, tears, or other wear.  The rear window is clear and not yellowed or foggy at all.  The power feature of the convertible top also works well with no strain or binding in the mechanism and the top operates properly.  The wheels are in excellent shape with a bright finish and no curb rash.  The underside of the car is also still very clean from the restoration.

The car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

 

The Parchment interior of the GTO looks splendid.  The seats look terrific and virtually brand new with absolutely no rips, tears, or split seams.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet throughout the car is also in "like new" condition with no rips, stains, or any signs of wear.  The finish on the dash is in great condition with no peeling or delamination.  The door panels looks awesome and fit tightly to the doors.  The arm pads on the door panels are not cracked or split, which is a very common problem on this era Pontiac, especially the convertibles.  The kick panels are not scuffed and look great.  The dash looks excellent with no cracks or splits.  This car has not been smoked in; there are no burn marks and no aroma whatsoever. 

 

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This car seems to be in excellent mechanical condition and I am not aware of any issues.  The car starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.  The car drives great and it is smooth on the road.  There is no notable smoke when starting or driving the car.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band.  This GTO has plenty of power and it is very fast, especially with the tri-power setup.  Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.  The horn works as do the all of the power windows from both the driver's door and each of the perspective window switches, radio, all gauges, interior and exterior lights, wipers, blower, and even the air conditioning blows cold.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

Overall, this GTO is in outstanding condition.  There is no way a similar car could be built or restored to this high level for any amount near our asking price.  This car is exceptionally rare with the convertible body style, a/c, and other options and comparables do not come up for sale often.  Based on some of the PHS documents, which are pictured below, this car left the factory with some different options than the car shows now.  PHS also determined that this car came from the factory with extremely rare SPS special paint, optioned over the standard colors.  Full size convertibles are highly collectible and make excellent cars to drive.  The restoration looks extraordinary and the car still appears fresh.  We, as always, encourage to you look at the car in person if possible.  Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
