I have a 1966 GTO I bought in May 1968. It is as built, Turbo 300 two speed on the column. I never seen another one yet. I always wondered the same thing. Bob

none , and the tranny was not a turbo 300 , it was a power glide. what style of taillights do you have , little square style ,or long bar type ? if it were a turbo it would have been a 350 turbo 3 speed which didn't come out untill 68. what is the first 7 digits of the VIN ?

no GTOs in 66 had a column shifter. or a 300 turbo tranny. a two speed power glide or a 4 speed manual or a three speed manual were there trannys available in 66. all were on the floor. you can find out everything about your car from phs-online.com , 66 was the first model year for the GTO . the VIN will tell you if it's a real GTO or not. good luck

I did send for and have the spec sheet from phs. It shows my Vin # as a 1966 GTO 335HP, 389 Disp, Auto (2sp) YS, Block and 10.75 C.R. Doesn't say if it's a turbo 300 or power glide, but it is on the column. I was always told it was a Buick turbo 300? I guess it's a power glide.Rear lights are long bar type. Also says the 3 speed was standard on the column, on the floor was an option? Any other advice ? I'll keep researching, Looks like some were made or ordered that way. Thanks, Bob

Yes, they did I have one automatic on the column with the factory build sheet that I got from the original owner my Uncle. 2spd on the column. I have not seen but a few others, so i would say that it is fairly rare.

2 speed is a power glide , 3 speed is a turbo.

Check your facts. 2 speed is a ST-300 BOP No power glide for 1966 GTO

I have a 1966 GTO; true 242; automatic with a column shift. This car is PHS documented w/window sticker. Column shift was standard if the optional console wasn't ordered. I love the column shift with an automatic; it opens the floor space up nicely
