We had to get my step dad's 1965 Pontiac GTO out of the trailer. It has a modified 455 under the hood. It sounds a bit better in real life because of my video camera. It is a real GTO, it just has the Lemans hood because we didn't want to cut up the nice GTO hood for the big scoop.

Fully sorted and paint shop fresh, this 1965 GTO is the PERFECT car for any
serious GTO fan who wants to prowl the streets in one of the most bad ass
American cars to ever hit the road.
The beneficiary of a complete frame up restoration, this handsome GTO is a
perfect blend of expert craftsmanship and fine attention to detail. The
cars straight and solid body is covered in a deep, highly polished coat of
GM code A Starlight Black paint that is so fresh you'll swear you smell wet
paint as soon as you're within five feet of its glistening panels. Under
that paint, straight and tight panel gaps, which are consistent throughout
the car, indicate that this GTO was a solid piece even before the
restoration began; and, as we all know, with a color like Starlight Black
you simply can't hide misalignments of imperfections. The result is a
clean, show-worthy GTO which looks great hammering down the highway, but is
subtle enough to stay under the radar.
Under the hood you'll find a YS 389 V8 that was completely rebuilt during
this GTOs extensive restoration and then upfitted with Pontiac's legendary
Tri-Power setup. Correct chrome valve covers sit at the sides of three
Rochester 2 barrel carburetors which each sport their own small, round air
cleaner as original. Below those carburetors, a brand new coat of correct
Pontiac Turquoise adorns the car's engine block from intake to oil pan, and
a correct optional seven blade GTO fan sits behind a correct radiator
that's equipped with correct GM hoses and tower clamps. At the sides of the
block, correct reproduction Exhaust
manifolds send spent gases into a true dual Exhaust system, and throughout the engine bay,
detailing is nicely done including a properly finished master cylinder, a
correct bright yellow throttle return spring, correct decals and a correct
reproduction Delco Energizer battery.
Logging very few miles since their complete restoration, this GTOs satin
black floor and rust free frame are absolutely spotless and present as if
they were brand new. During the restoration, the car's front suspension was
completely rebuilt along with the its four wheel drum brakes and power
steering was added to make the turns a little more manageable. Power from
the growling 389 is sent to a Muncie 4-speed transmission which spins a
familiar GM 10 bolt rear end that's complete with new coil springs, new
shocks and a reproduction maintenance tag. In front of that transmission,
the cars turquoise oil pan is completely dry indicating no leaks, and at
the sides of that transmission, a nice mandrel bent true dual Exhaust system incorporates two turbo mufflers, authentic wrinkle bent tail pipes
and stainless steel turn downs. At the corners, correct silver painted
rally wheels wear perfect stainless trim rings and center caps inside of
four E70-14 Firestone Super Sport Wide Oval redlines.
Inside the car a newly assembled black vinyl interior features firm Pontiac
stitched seats and a completely restored walnut veneer trimmed dash.
Positioned directly in front of the driver, correct optional rally gauges
that are intended to be reminiscent of European sports cars look great and
function just as well as they did in 1965. Below those gauges, a correct
factory optioned AM push button radio sits in excellent looking new chrome
trim which contrasts well with the gloss black lower dash. Between the
seats, a new full length console holds a chrome Hurst shifter inside of
excellent looking 'mile-long' finned trim, and below the console, new black
carpet is protected by color matched floor mats with vibrant GTO emblems.
At the sides of the seats, new door panels feature new stainless trim and
chrome handles under correct red GTO emblems, and above the seats a new
black headliner still retains its factory gloss. In front of the driver, a
correct stainless trimmed Pontiac steering wheel features a trademark
turquoise centerpiece inside of a pristine chrome horn ring.
Packing a Tri-Power 389 under the hood and a slick shifting 4-speed Muncie
transmission, this iconic black on black '65 GTO is an ideal blend of
performance and style!

1965 Pontiac GTO
This 1965 Pontiac GTO has just been through an extensive restoration and is
finally ready! This car was built in Fremont California and has remained a
California car all of it's life. The numbers matching 389ci has been
completely rebuilt. It has new pistons, rings, bearings, camshaft, valves
and valve springs. It's bored .30 over and the crank turned at .010ths. It
still sports the stock 10:75:1 compression ratio and runs perfectly. The
transmission is a stock Muncie M20 wide ratio 4-speed with the original
shifter. Shifts like new. This is a well above-average restoration as the
pictures will show in arguably the best color possible. With new interior,
plenty of newly re-chromed trim, polished stainless steel and all new glass
(except wind-wings), this GTO is a fabulous investment opportunity for the
collector. The paint and body are incredible, beautiful panel alignment,
just a stunning piece of Pontiac history done up right! The car is PHS
documented and it will be included.

This well documented 1965 GTO has been expertly restored, features a proper
WT-coded engine and is a fantastic car for anyone who wants to show and
enjoy their vintage Pontiac muscle.
Frame up restored in 2006, this car demonstrates that things of quality
have no fear of time with all original body panels being present and
accounted for. The car was re-sprayed in its original code B Blue Charcoal
and despite having great base coat/clear coat paint displays a finish that
looks more like traditional lacquer. When the paint dried, a black vinyl
top was added to make this car perfectly epitomize the GTOs image of all
performance underneath wrapped in a universally appealing, upscale package.
At the front of the car, vertically stacked T3 headlights and a split
grille are Pontiac design masterpieces which look great trimmed in chrome
and divided by a silver Pontiac arrow head. A full width show-ready chrome
bumper combines with the broad split grille to make the car look wider and
more aggressive. New for 1965 was a GTO exclusive hood scoop that wasn't
ostentatious but definitely conveyed a sense of performance. The sides of
the car are a bit more subtle that the front, featuring red pin stripes
that run along the top of the vertical side panels and well maintained
stainless trim around the wheel openings and along the rocker panels. All
glass appears to be original and is bordered by bright stainless and
combined with the vinyl top highlights the clean 60s lines of the 2 door
hardtop body. At the back of the car, a body width chrome bumper with
optional deluxe back up lights sits below a great looking body width finned
rear valence that cleverly hides the cars brake lights and an appropriately
centered Pontiac emblem.
The cars WT-coded 389 was rebuilt during the 2006 frame off restoration and
performs as well as it did when it left the factory. A Tri-Power intake
setup was added using correct parts and the engine was finished in correct
Pontiac Turquoise. Chrome valve covers are correct and the carburetors each
sport their own small, round air cleaner, as original. Detailing is nicely
done, including the proper finishes on items like the master cylinder, the
alternator, and even the throttle return spring. The satin black inner
fenders create a beautiful frame for the turquoise V8, and even things like
the hoses and clamps are correct reproduction items.
Equipped with a 4-speed and a 10-bolt limited slip rear end with 3.23
gears, this cars performance credentials can't be dismissed. The floors are
solid and coated in correct satin black, not over-restored or
over-finished, and the suspension is 100% stock with the exception of rear
air shocks. Power steering was added to make turns a little more manageable
and aluminum manual drum brakes from a '66 GTO have been installed and are
surprisingly strong. A dual Exhaust
system sounds right with Flowmaster mufflers and looks even better with
stainless Firebird tips. Wheels are cool reproduction polished Hurst units,
with chrome lug nuts and chrome Hurst center caps, which look exceptional
on the handsome GTOs coke bottle shape. Wrapped around those wheels is a
set of period-correct redline tires.
Inside this GTO is an almost completely original interior. The original
front buckets and rear bench feature the Pontiac arrow head in their back
panels and look fantastic with only the driver's seat showing any wear at
all. The round-faced gauges in the wood grained upper dash were intended to
be reminiscent of a European sports car, and they all appear to have been
restored with the rest of the car. Correct GTO emblems are used on the
great looking door panels and the dash features original chrome trim and
body color matched GTO ornamentation. New carpet houses a simple chrome
shifter and is protected by black reproduction floor mats. A tight new
headliner occupies the roof and is fitted with new chrome visor hardware
and a new interior light.
This expertly restored 1965 Pontiac GTO is highly correct and is an ideal
blend of performance and style that will be a pleasure to own.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
