The 66 is the Chieftess of the tribe. A 66 GTO convertible is the one car I'd have if I had to choose only one. This car was bought from a GTO Assoc of Maine member who owned it for 14 years. He had a 283 Chevy in it that he bought at a yard sale for $35. He ran this motor for 10 years. He collected a lot of parts including a '66 (not GTO) block and tripower. Pontiac Historical documented the car as an original tripower 4 speed car - imagine my surprise. It's finished in original nightwatch blue with a blue interior. Jeff Shepard did the body work and paint, Butler& MacMaster did the motor, and I did the dirty work.
Here's the start photo - hood lettering is primo Engine compartment - note the PS pump bracket Interior all the way down. Slight repair to the rear quarter Rear 1/4 back on On the way to Jeff's Starting to go back the right way Showing it's true colors Some assembly required Jeff at work Lookin' better then the 283 did!
