This beautiful full size car was purchased new from Schultz Brothers Pontiac, Algona, Iowa on April 18th, 1966! Refined and restyled for 1966, the ’66 Grand Prix was designed with a clean and sporty image. New frenched headlights now replaced the chrome ‘eyebrows’ from the previous year, and the front end featured blacked-out plastic egg crate grilles and turn signals located in the same cavities. The taillight panel sported chrome trim ribs, which gave the impression of full-width taillights with the inside blacked out in between. Refinished in a brilliant Orange/Bronze metallic this Grand Prix shows extremely well. The front and rear chrome bumpers are tight and the finish is exquisite. Featured on the hood is a blended air scoop and the rare optional hood mounted period correct tachometer. The front grill is in very good condition as is the rear aluminum taillight panel, showing only minor signs of aging. All trim pieces are present and have a great finish. The headlights and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks. Inside, this Pontiac features a black vinyl interior and the front Strato bucket seats and rear bench that are in very good condition. The black door panels, carpet and walnut accented dashboard are a continuation of the striking interior of this sedan and look good. The black headliner completes rest of the interior and is in very good condition. The weather-stripping is excellent, with little signs of drying, tearing or shrinkage. All the original equipment gauges are well placed, have correct appearance as originally design. The functioning heater, air conditioning, and leather wrapped original tilt two spoke steering wheel are in very good condition. Overall, the interior of this Grand Prix is very nice.

1966 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX - STILL OUTSTANDING
Pontiac had it's game on in '66, the period of Poncho cars that still are favorites with car buffs. The Pontiac lineup this years started with the Tempest, Tempest Custom, LeMans, Tempest G.T.O., Catalina, the Pontiac 2+2, Star Chief Executive, Bonneville, and Grand Prix at the top. Pontiac turned 40 years old in 1966 and in June of that year built it's 11 millionth car. Pontiac head John DeLorean developed a wide range of engines, 13 in all, to accommodate all of these Pontiac levels. Pontiac introduced the over-head-cam Sprint engine which was America's first performance 6 cylinder since the Hudson Hornet six in the early fifties. For the Tempest and LeMans, 6 cylinders came in 230 cubes with 165 - 207 hp., and V8's with 326 cubes and 250 - 285 hp. Other full size Pontiacs came with V8's with a 389 cube and either 256, 290, 325 333, 360, horses. For the rest of the full size pack, there was the V8 421 cube with 338 horses. The Grand Pwix came only in a hardtop coupe with a base price of $ 3,492. This example here is one of 36,757 sold this year. Model year production increased about 30,000 units to a total of 830,778, keeping Pontiac behind Ford and Chevy among the U.S. automakers. What is so cool about the GP? The front clip shows the split grille with the beak nose and stacked headlights. The hood bevels down to the grille and presents a hood scoop and a tachometer visible to the driver. The interior is embellished in tufted black vinyl and the dash is accented with chrome. Near the rocker panel is a flaired bodyside that runs the length of the car. The rear end treatment has a side to side taillight and reflector with multiple horizontal trim. The fenders approach the rear and cup around the taillights. There are 16 colors for the GP this year and this example is finished in Montero Red. Thanks very much for viewing this 1966 Pontiac Gran Prix hardtop.
