Classic Car Overview
This is a true dream car. After all, a 1965 Pontiac GTO that was born with big tri-power 389 V8 and four-on-the-floor. But as you dig deeper youre going to discover everything from a great story to an A/C interior. Reef Turquoise is a great color. After all, it gives this hardtop all the appeal of a day at the beach. It was resprayed about three years ago, and the extra metallic flake added to this factory-correct color really gives this the sparkling appeal of a deep blue ocean. But this one looks great for so many more reasons. The new-for-1965 vertical stack headlights shine like jewels; the bumpers are mirror-like; the correct GTO badging is all present; and the intricate tail panel is complete. And youll love the polished Rally II wheel upgrade that includes red center caps and bolts to go with the classic redline wheels. Its this level of detail that tells you this has been treated with care and respect, and we understand why. The consignors father was the original owner of this coupe. The ocean-like appeal continues inside with the factory-correct turquoise interior. Theres 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 a bright center console make this a true classic muscle car experience. Youre also going to love the mix of vintage features and correct upgrades. For example, the AM radio is still cranking out tunes, but you get to stay completely cool thanks to modern R134a air conditioning. Your left hand will love the thin and grippy steering wheel, and your right one will likely never leave the Hurst shifter. Plus, the upgraded tach and auxiliary gauge trio go nicely with the power package under the hood. Pontiacs famous 389 cubic-inch V8 is a powerful legend that doesnt need much introduction. But when you pop the hood at the car shows, people will gravitate to whats on top of this V8 first. This is the famous tri-power setup with the trio of Rochester two-barrel carburetors. Plus, we have the dealer invoice to show this was originally sold with this ultra-desirable option - even the motor is believed to be original. The presentation is top-notch with the correct decals, tidy setup, and a block that was painted about five years ago so you know youll love showing off this tri-power machine. There are also the right supporting components like an Optima red top battery and newer cooling fan. Theres even power steering and front disc brakes. This proves to you this is a classic meant for driving. So youll also love the full control you get from the four-speed manual transmission. 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. Not only do you get the dealer invoice, but also other paperwork like the original warranty card, title documentation, and build receipts. This is your chance at a big power GTO thats been treated like a family heirloom. Dont miss you chance, call today!
