Stats:
'66 GTO, post-coupe, 4-speed. Originally ordered with the 389 4-bbl, rated at 335 HP. There were 10,363 post-coupes made that year.
Original options:
Radio: pushbutton and manual antenna
Seat belts: custom
Clock: electric
Glass: Soft-Ray
Tires: 7:75 x 14 White
Axle: Safe-T-Track, 3:55 gear ratio
Transmission: Muncie M-20 wide ratio
Exterior color: Mission beige
Interior color: black
All taken from my PHS documents on the car.
Obviously my main project. I've wanted a GTO for quite some time. Before this I had a '79 Firebird me and a friend worked on but I ended up parting it out.

True, but the last post in your thread was in '07. Bet a lot has changed in 2 years, including some of the people on this forum.

As for the OP, Chevelles are nice (have had 3) but they are getting way over priced these days. And right now,there are more Chevelle SS' on the road then were ever produced. Everyone is cloning them these days.
