4610 Pet Lane
This 1966 Pontiac 2+2 is a proper cool-cruising hardtop with everything you want, including an A/C interior, 8-lug wheels, and a big 421 V8 with tri-power on top. It means you're looking at a sleek, loaded, powerful, and rare coupe that's perfect for the enthusiast looking for true distinction.
The 2+2 was its own series for only 1966, and there were less than 6,400 made. So over a half-century later, this is truly a rare sight. But it's more than just history that makes you want this hardtop. Pontiacs really were entering their own stratosphere of cool in this era, and it all started with the design. Stacked headlights stretched to the edges made room for dual wide grilles to drive home the Wide Track look. In the back, the bumpers mirrored the outstretched sheetmetal for a true designer's touch. This is a significant looking car, and so there was a significant investment to keep it that way. The factory-correct Cameo Ivory was given a high-quality professional respray. Great-looking body panels, clean/clear glass, and mirror-like brightwork all give this one premium appeal. The 2+2 was built to be the GTO's big brother, and so they gave it the best in sporty attitude, including the nicely sloped hardtop profile. And not only do you have a set of classic and sporty redline tires, but also they are mounted on the famous 8-lug wheels which were great for both style and stopping power.
The 2+2 badging on the car and the tires give the bright white exterior a nice hint of red accenting. And it also happens to be a preview of the factory-correct red interior. The doors, dash, upholstery, and headliner all share this color for a great uniform appearance, and the condition tells you there was a big investment to keep it looking impressive. Pontiac loved to have fun with European names and make them their own. So while the GTO was borrowed from a V12 Ferrari, the 2+2 name in Europe meant a small back seat...but Pontiac's 2+2 was quite the opposite. This is a full-size car, and so there's a ton of hip and leg room in the back to make this terrific for sharing with family and friends. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo to keep them all entertained. But where Pontiac got the European part right is by focusing this car on the driver. Bucket seats, a center console, and a full driver-oriented dash mean you are always the top priority. There are great classic pieces like the wood-rimmed steering wheel and long speedometer. This is joined by well-integrated upgrades like the backlit auxiliary gauge trio. This was born a factory air conditioning car, and now it has been updated to blow cold with modern R134a refrigerant. So you know it's the ideal one that keeps you cool when you roll down all the windows and show off the pillarless hardtop profile.
Because this was built to the GTO's big brother, it got an even bigger powerhouse. That means Pontiac's mighty 421 cubic-inch V8. Not only does this motor look clean and complete, but it's also a year-correct block. Of course, what really has you excited is the triple set or Rochester dual-barrel carburetors for Pontiac's famous tri-power setup. The V8 fires up readily, and the dual exhaust has a terrific low bass. So the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering are a great combo to have to make sure you can show off this full package with ease.
This is a distinct Pontiac that is ready to show off. That's why the sale comes complete with the reproduction window sticker and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation. So if you're ready for the best in big muscle coupes, this 2+2 is ready for you. Call today!!!
