1965 Pontiac GTO

Admit it, it's the color that first attracted you to this 1965 Pontiac GTO. This has the perfect paint combo for those who want to grab attention with luster instead of loud color. But since this is a real-deal Goat with its original big tri-power 389 V8 and four-on-the-floor, it's allure is much more than just skin deep.This one lets its Burgundy Red paint do all the talking. While it's the factory-correct color for this '65, a thorough professional respray gives it the kind of clearcoat luster that makes people take notice the moment the sunshine hits it. But you can really tell the investment went well beyond the color to make sure the body was looking its best, and the big chrome bumpers shine like mirrors. As you get up close, the details are right, too. The new-for-1965 vertical stack headlights shine like jewels; all the trim is straight; correct GTO badging is on the front, rear, and fenders; and the intricate tail panel is complete. There's been a cool set of Cragar wheels added with black centers that look great when combined with the deep, dark tint of the windows.There's more evidence of quality care and maintenance the moment you lay eyes on the bucket seats. They are crisp right down to the correct arrowhead emblem embossed into each one. Matching door panels with correct GTO emblems and deep dark carpeting make this a true classic muscle car experience. Aiming for a more European feel in the GTO, Pontiac designers gave it a wood grained dashboard with the round rally gauge cluster. Plus, there are some nice additions such as the auxiliary gauge trio and the knob-style AM/FM/cassette stereo that has an aux input for your iPod. Your left hand will love the new Grant wood grained steering wheel, and your right one will likely never leave the Hurst shifter. Plus, a nice jet age center console does a great job of uniting the feeling of premium and performance together in one package.Pontiac's famous 389 cubic-inch V8 is a legend that doesn't need much introduction. But when you pop the hood at the car shows, people will gravitate to what's on top of this V8 first. That the famous tri-power setup of the trio of Rochester two-barrel carburetors. Plus, we have the PHS (Pontiac Historic Services) docs that show this motor is date coded correctly to be original, and that the carbs are the correct setup. Even the Muncie M20 four-speed manual is the correct transmission for the car. This option package was the most ideal setup you could have in 1965, and this one has proven to be one of the few that were born that way. So we know how much you're going to enjoy the extra crackle from the V8 as the dual exhaust howls with delight when you decide to drive this stick-shift muscle car legend to its fullest. And because we all know you will, we've got a ton of receipts to showing the right maintenance right down to a new distributor, plug wires, spark plugs, and aluminum flex fan.Complete with owner's manual and aforementioned PHS docs, this is a rare deal on one of the most desirable muscle car around. One that looks and sounds this good won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!!
