“First launching in 1964 on the General Motors A-body platform, the GTO was initially an option package for the Pontiac LeMans and later became a standalone model in 1966,” says AutoHunter on the GTO’s listing.
This example was subject to a body-off restoration between 2011 and 2012 in which the convertible was repainted in the factory shade of Fontaine Blue and given a replacement, power-operated white convertible top. The body also wears quad stacked headlights, hood scoops, bright moldings and trim and a dual exhaust system at the rear.

“The interior was refurbished with correct Parchment vinyl seating and door panels, contrasted by replacement black carpeting and Pontiac-branded floor mats,” the auction adds.
Additional interior amenities include a faux woodgrain trim, factory air conditioning, push-button radio and a cue ball shift knob.
Power comes from a rebuilt 389cid Tri-Power V8 that was overhauled during the restoration. The engine is linked to a Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission which replaced the car’s original 2-speed automatic.
The odometer shows 70,761 miles, although the seller notes true chassis mileage is unknown.
