132668 / 1965 Pontiac GTO

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cwvaaq5 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!

It was a muscle car classic of the 1960s and 1970s. In early 1963, General Motors' management issued a ban on involvement in auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's advertising and marketing approach was heavily based on performance, and racing was an important component of that strategy. With GM's ban on factory-sponsored racing, Pontiac's young and visionary management turned its attention to emphasizing street performance. The GTO was basically a violation of GM policy, but since the GTO was an option package and not standard equipment, it fell into a loophole in the policy. The GTO was restyled for the 1965 model year. It had Pontiac's characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. The restyled GTO had a new simulated hood scoop. Another cosmetic change was the black "egg-crate" grille. VIN 237375P337784 The previous owner of this black beauty owned the car since the early 1980's. She bought it out of Ohio.
