1965 Pontiac GTO
Here is a true classic muscle car up for sale that when restored there were no stones left unturned. The project took 12 years to complete and has every aspect documented. I have read the complete documentation and I want to share the first few paragraphs of the story by the builder / owner.
This project started with a genuine GTO. Upon detailed examination I identified that none of the OE engine and drive train components stated on the factory build sheet existed with the exception of a 65 Tri-Power manifold and carbs. What did exist was a 66 421 block and a 70-72 M20 four speed mated to a 12 bolt rear end with 308:1 gearing.
The project plan was to build a strong street machine taking advantage of the knowledge that has been gained by my research reading of advances/enhancements created by others over the years with GTO’s in the restoration / modification industry as well as utilizing my 34 years of automotive engineering experience to create a cosmetically correct restoration utilizing the components that came with the car as I bought it while locating and adding some desirable 1965 factory options not included during the factory build of this vehicle to enhance the final package.
The restoration of this car is so extensive we had the restored Rally Gaga package set to zero as this is truly a new car. The car has 1303 miles on it since completion in June of 2011.
A copy of complete documentation of this car can be email for your reading. The highlights of the car are the very powerful four bolt main 421 CI motor producing 468 HP @4900 rpm and 552 lb/ft of torque@3900. The motor sports Edelbrock heads and about every high quality performance part available for the big Indian.
There is no power steering or power brakes and this is what muscle cars about. The sissy creature comforts were not added for the real 60’s feel. The car drives and handles and brakes excellent. The brakes were upgrade to a dual Corvette style master cylinder instead of single reservoir. The motor was designed to run on 93 Octane pump gas.
This was a frame off restoration and every part was touched analyzed and deemed worthy or replace with OE parts and or the best replacement parts available. No expense was spared to reproduce this car. From the custom made coated headers to the aluminum performance drive shaft this car complete and rock solid.
The complete electrical system is new and upgraded by the auto engineer owner and again it is quality through out the system.
The car is 100% rust free now and every attempt to coat all the surfaces after they were stripped to bare metal to ensure this would never be an issue with this car. The body is slick and straight and base clear Torch Red. The interior is new with only quality products has well as the glass which is all tinted.If you always wanted a true GTO muscle car this is for you. There is so much information and complete parts listing and dyno sheets and the list goes on. If you want to go for a week end cruise to a car show or bang some gears through the new Hurst shifter, his car will impress you. The builder / owner will go over every item on car and show you how he built car with the aid of big business names he used to help. Labor of love and he met his goal of an awesome show car and muscle car. The GTO has never been raced or hot rodded. The car is available for inspection in Cookeville TN. The car can ship world wide and the new owner is responsible for shipping. Car can be driven anywhere. There are many, any pictures of car available and owner is on board to discuss all aspects of build.
