Not nearly enough!

My best guess would be to check with PHS.

PHS Historic Services

PHS would have the information. Weather you can get it or not is the question, as every one of the 96,000+ manifests would have to be reviewed....a big job. Two tone '66 GTO's came in three flavors: convertible top option, vinyl top option, and painted top option. The vinyl tops were popular in '66 and later years, not so much prior to that. You can lood up the production figure on '66 convertibles, and that will tell you part of the equation. Painted top two tone '66 cars are not very common, IMO. I've seen a couple of them over the past 35 years, and I'm always looking for GTO's!! My bet would be less painted two tone '66's than vinyl top cars or convertibles.

I currenty came into a 66 GTO T-C on the Data Plate
The Vin checks out and the rest of data plate shows a a/c, bucket seats, console, delux seat belts, radio and rear speaker. I must say this color combo is nice.
Needs some wor. I hope my wife will agree with me. If not off to the market it go's.
I have another question. All the stamped numbers are where they should be. However the right side trunk gutter. The metal is rusted upto the number. I have located a quailty repair for it off a 66 Tempest.
Should I replace it ? and if I should. Could I cut out the stamp and weld it in?
I want this to remain as matching as possible.

The GTO that I owned in the Seventies was original Mariner Turquoise with an original white painted top. I purchased this goat from the original owner who told me that this paint color combination was popular in very hot areas (my car was sold out of El Paso, Texas and the white top absorbed less heat that a darker color would). So..........if your car was initially sold in a very hot area, the percentages of having a multi-color paint scheme might be higher.

jd, you could cut the stamped out area and weld it in, yes. I wouldn't really worry about it, as you have a matching numbers car and you are performing a legitimate, real-world repair.

Two-tone painted 66 GTOs are pretty rare. I've owned mine for 42 years and never seen another in person! And very few on the internet!

The option code on the window sticker for two-tone paint was RTT.

My car (Mission Beige on lower body) has a code 221 (Fawn) interior, but the dash pad and rear package shelf are a darker color to coordinate with the Martinique Bronze roof.

My car was ordered by the original owner, from who I purchased it in 1972. The wife loved the two-tone cars of the 50's and early 60's and took advantage of the RTT option to order a two-tone GTO.

She picked the V-T paint combination (Mission Beige / Martinique Bronze) because she didn't want her GTO to "look like a Hot Rod"!
