Hello, I a new to the forum and have always loved the looks of the GTO. I spend a lot of time with friends working on early model cars and trucks but I'm new to the world of GTO's.
I own a couple of early model corvettes, and hang out on the corvette forum. My friends give me a hard time because at most car shows I spend most of my time looking at the GTO's. Well I finally pulled the trigger and was high bidder on a 66 convertible. It looks like the GTO is being sold by a dealer that is probably flipping it, so info will be hard to get. He is representing it as a numbers matching car.
I'm not to worried about what to look for as far as rust goes on the body, the car seems to be in pretty good shape, and I can repair whatever I need to.
The drive trane I know nothing about, I need help in identifying matching numbers.
I want to confirm where to look for the block and tranny identification. I am doing as much research as I can but I don't have a lot of time, and if this forum is like the corvette forum I'm sure there is ton of knowledge here.
I will print out VIN Decoding information to take with me.
A few other questions, The GTO has power windows, I am assuming it was an option in 66?
Any suggestions on what else to look for would be appreciated.
I know everyone wants pictures so here is one that came with the add, maybe someone has seen this GTO.
Thanks for your help.
