1966 Pontiac GTO Hardtop (Hemmings Motor News) 1:18 Scale Diecast
GM took everything they learned from the previous two years of the GTO™ to make the 1966 model the best yet. Selling 96,946 units in 1966 alone, its new Coke-bottle styling and semi-fastback sail panels were a hit with buyers. The 1966 GTO™ had a huge following with its popular advertising, powerful performance, and gorgeous good looks—a full year before an onslaught of competition poured out of Chrysler, Ford, and Chevrolet® in the form of the Dodge Coronet R/T, Plymouth GTX, Chevy® Camaro® SS™, big-block Cougars and redesigned Mustangs.
Featured in the 2016 Hemmings Motor News Buyer’s Guide, Auto World has replicated this 1966 GTO™ in Palmetto Green with Ivory Cordova top and Parchment interior owned by Brian Rhynas of Queen Creek, Arizona.
