Looks good, but wrong wheels for a 1966. Rally II's not available until 1967.

That's a first . . . the Performance Hood Treatment from a 1971 on a 1970. Should look like this:

The Hurst wheel almost became OEM for Pontiac. Read why it didn't here: http://www.hotrod.com/articles/0806phr-hurst-wheel/

Is that a custom fiberglass boot cover? Never seen anything like that on a GTO convertible. Something that was found on OEM show cars like the Pontiac X-400:

The car was subject to "subtle" customization by the owners during restoration.

"A Custom Built Body Color Parade Boot Replaces The Canvas Top Boot. This Type Was Used On Show Cars Like The Full Sized X 400s, And Was Also Available On Some Cadillacs."

There was a switch on the dash to go from 2WD to 4WD.

Also notice the hood scoop insert doesn't have the black grilles. I see a lot of 65-67 GTO's that come out of a generic resto shop, and it's like the people that painted it had never seen a GTO before.

The Rally II's are of course incorrect, but they should also have trim rings, but this could be an owner preference.

Great observations, Mike. And now that I look back at it, I think the '68 convertible I posted earlier today might have one of those AWD switches too.

Do you know for sure that the hood scoop grills should be black? I agree that I almost never see them black. My 67 is Starlight Black so they are black
