1965 Pontiac GTOFactory born tri-power, 4-speed GTO with a 3.55 posi! Documented by Pontiac Historical Service. Body off the frame restored.
EXTERIOR: The body has been restored to above average condition. I don't see any bubbles, significant flaws or damage. The paint has a glossy finish. Upfront the bumper is rechromed, the grills were cleaned up, has original headlight bezels. The emblems, rocker moldings, wheel well moldings, look fresh. In back it has it's original ribbed tail panel, rechromed bumper. New windshield. Door jambs are clean, weatherstrip looks new. Has a new set of 15 inch Torque Thrust wheels with new tires, fatter in the back.
INTERIOR: All new reproduction upholstery, door panels, armrests, carpet, headliner and visors. They should have put new cushions in the front seats, that can be done and still reuse the new upholstery. Dash area is nice, it's been repainted. Has a tachometer on the column, gauges below the dash and a walnut steering wheel.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: That is a 455 motor sitting underneath that tri-power carb set up. The 455 block was bored 30 over. Has Ram Air lV cam and performance built heads. This is a functional ram air, the scoop is cut out and it has the pan that seals to the hood. Upgraded aluminum radiator, has a new shroud. New power brake system with dual master reservoir. It also has power steering. New alternator, new chrome valve covers, the wiring is very tidy. Battery is secured properly. The engine compartment painted nicely.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Solid metal trunk floor. Has 2 piece mat and matching tire cover. Has jack and spare. New weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame so a thorough restoration could be done under the car. The chassis was completely restored, front end components were all rebuilt or replaced including ball joints, bushings, sway bar, shocks etc. In back the suspension is rebuilt too. New shocks. This GTO has the ride and handling package which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. The frame was prepped and painted. The brake system has been completely redone. Upgraded to disc in front. New brake lines, parking brake cable assembly. Fuel system looks new- the tank, straps, sending unit, fuel lines and fuel pump. Exhaust system is new. The bottom of the body is clean metal painted black. The body was reattached to the frame with new rubber bushings. Bottom of the motor is clean and painted. The Muncie 4-speed looks fresh. U-joints are new. Has 10 bolt 3.55 posi rear end with a new chrome cover.
The fact it is was born a GTO with tri-power, 4-speed and a posi is a big deal. Underneath and mechanical restoration appears to be high quality. To bring it to the next level some of the trim could be restored and new seat cushions. Nice as-is but this car warrants going the extra. I personally drove this car home and around town. It was great, ran strong!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
