The beneficiary of a fresh frame-off restoration, this awesome 1965 GTO is a perfect blend of expert craftsmanship and fine attention to detail. With a solid body present and accounted for, the car was carefully straightened and sanded into better-than-new condition. Once that highly detailed metal work transitioned from the garage bay to the paint booth, classic 60s panels were re-sprayed in their correct GM code N Burgundy. When that paint dried, it was sealed in clear and buffed to a clean, flat shine. And today, officially unleashed as the epitome of old school American style, this goat is one seriously cool head turner that'll drop jaws just as easily as it'll win trophies. Raise this Pontiac's long steel hood and the first thing you'll notice is a killer Tri-Power 389 which sports a trio of rebuilt Rochester 2-barrel carburetors that are each equipped with individual stainless fuel lines and their own chrome air cleaners. Less obvious of course, is the stalwart engine's correct 9778789 casting number, November (K) 27th (27) of 1964 (4) casting date and tri-power 389/4-speed exclusive "WS" stamp. The triad of Rochester carburetors feeds a correct high output intake manifold which is bolted between pristine chrome valve covers. Fires are lit by a familiar points style distributor which jolts sparks through a fresh set of plug wires. Cooling is provided by a correct radiator which sends water around a correct fan shroud via reproduction GM hoses and traditional tower clamps. And Exhaust is funneled through a nice pair of recently restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds. The stout 389 sends power to a correct Muncie M20 4-speed which wears a familiar 3851325 casting number and a Muncie (P) assembled on September (09) 24th (24) of 1964 build stamp. That 4-speed spins a stalwart GM 10 bolt rear end which is stuffed with gravel busting gears. At the sides of that rock solid drivetrain, a professionally restored suspension is complete with both factory optioned power steering and heavy duty power drum brakes at all four of its corners. And applying the muscle to the pavement is a pristine set of 15 inch painted steel wheels which spin G70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around detailed Pontiac Motor Division hub caps. Open the car's freshly finished doors and you'll find a fully restored, and correct, GM code 213 black vinyl interior that's simple yet sporty. Front and center is firm bucket and bench seats which feature bright stainless trim, cool pleated covers and fresh Fisher lap belts. The engine's vitals are displayed by an optional Rally Gauge cluster which integrates round-faced dials and a correct Delco AM radio into a veneer-trimmed dash that's reminiscent of European sports cars. And in front of the driver, a great looking Pontiac Custom Sport steering wheel spins correct polished spokes around a Turquoise "Pontiac Motor Division" horn button. If you've been patiently waiting for the opportunity to pick up a near perfect example of the ORIGINAL muscle car, here's your chance!
