Im looking at a 66 GTO and would like to know where to find info on decoding the trim tag and how to get PHS docs for this car and other relative info that can help me understand the originality of the car?

This is my first post here as im usually a Camaro guy, but i stumbled onto this car and would like to pursue it.

Thanks GTO Forum for the opportunity to post here.

Welcome. Just google PHS docs, and google "Pontiac trim tag information" and you'll find everything you'll need. It's all on line now, (excepth you'll have to order the PHS papers), and all available to you. If contemplating a GTO purchase, I highly recommend the PHS docs. Money well spent.

OK thanks - just did the PHS and verified the car....

Any idea on the value of an orig owner, 50K mile GTO with tripower, all matching numbers, orig paint, never wrecked or damage and 3 speed with no other real options worth mentioning??

Thanks again for the info

ENIO45 - I saw your request for '66GTO Info - I own a '66 GTO and you said the one your looking at following PHS confirmation has a 3 speed. I am new to this fantastic GTO Forum site & want to learn all I can about GTO's. I do not remember '66 Goats having a 3 speed - all I remember was either 4 speed or automatic. I would like to hear more from all the knowledgeable owner's regarding this.
I definitely agree that buying a '66 GTO Classic American Icon is money very well spent.

'66's came standard with a 3 spd manual. Optional heavy duty 3 spd, 4 speed manual and an auto(2 spd). So I'm reading...:)

I've read that column shift 3 speed was an option, but I've never seen one. Plenty of floor shift 3 spds, though. Anybody out there have a 3 speed column shift early GTO?
