Classic Car Overview
There will never be another 1965 GTO like this one, and it has just been lowered in price from $79,000. This car is a complete off-the-frame total and complete restoration. PONTIAC HISTORICAL SOCIETY CERTIFICATION showing that it is exactly as represented. All the suspension has been replaced with OEM parts and specifications. This includes shocks, coil springs, upper control arms, lower control arms, ball joints, complete drum brakes, brake lines, brake drums, fuel lines, new gas tank. EVERY thing in the under carriage is re-built. Engine completely rebuilt. New pistons, rings, cam, lifters and push rods, all bearings, seals and gaskets, all OEM. EVERY thing, EVERY thing. I have installed rocker rollers, which can be easily replaced with the originals and re-installed, which I still have at your request. New clutch disc, fly wheel and pressure plate, all OEM. This car did not come with 3 deuces. I purchased these with an original intake and had all the carburetors completely rebuilt at a total cost, including purchase, of more than $6000. I have the original 4 barrel and intake which can be installed upon request or you may take them with you. Transmission overhaul, rear end is a 10-bolt 3.23 with original tag. All the numbers in the car match. EVERY thing! Most have tabs, but numbers are clearly stamped in the engine and transmission, etc. This is the original radiator. I had the old core, I don't remember whether they were 2 or 3, replaced with a new 5 core. All copper for additional cooling. You cannot tell any difference by looking. The only way to know is by the very heavy weight when it is out of the car (I have a $900 receipt for the core). The wheels pictured on the car are 1966 wheels which I restored and put on the car because I like them better than the 1965. I have all of the 1965 wheels completely restored which go with the car. I have footlockers full of perfectly good original parts taken off this GTO, all of which go with the car. The paint on the car is the exact color as when it rolled out of the factory, as is the interior. I have pictures of the car in its original condition when I rescued it from a barn in Tennessee with the original hand painted pin stripes from the factory. The car had never been repainted when I took possession. The new pinstripes were hand painted by a master pinstriper who originally worked for GM doing this. He is 75 years old and has an unbelievable iron steady hand. The interior was all redone to exact and original factory specifications. All the seats, front and back, were re-padded before covering. Carpet, side panels, trunk, all original. The car has been completely installed with DuraMat and DuraFoam, including the inner fender wells and doors for sound and vibration, also under head liner for insulation. Original OEM exhaust headers (rare) with new stainless steel exhaust system, 2-1/2". New stainless steel gas tank. The entire car has been re-wired with new OEM wiring. All lights work -- mirror map, under hood, trunk, glove box and courtesy light. Radio complete rebuilt all original OEM by a radio man who worked for GM Delco Department. All cables, bolts, nuts screws from front bumper to rear restored or replaced. There is a new fan shroud installed with a flex fan for additional cooling. I have the original clutch fan completely new and restored along with fan shroud which can be replaced upon request or take extra with you. The water has been complete evacuated from the system and replaced with waterless coolant at a cost of $300 just for coolant. Obviously this is easy to change if you don't want it that way but it affords additional cooling. All bearings in the car from bumper to bumper have been replaced. New heater motor. I have invested 6700 hours and 4-1/2 years restoring this car. I have over $100,000 invested in parts, paint, interior, etc., etc., etc. and have the documents and receipts to prove it.
In finale, this is the most
remarkable GTO you will ever see or could hope to own. I'm sure I have forgotten many things to
mention, but your questions are welcomed any time. The car only has 200 miles on it. I'm 75 years old and in ill health. Time for me to move on. R.W. 702-400-9031
