Is the GTO the ultimate muscle car? Fast, stylish, and universally appreciated, it's the car we would all like to own. This 1965 GTO ragtop offers a full frame off restoration and a stunning Parchment interior to go with the brilliant red base/clear paint job. Want to have some fun? All you need is the sun, the sky, and your GTO. While the cowl tag says this one was originally Burgundy, nobody will argue with the decision to go with bright red instead. There's really no point in keeping a low profile in a GTO like this, and when the work is so well executed, there's no reason to hide it. The crisply styled and all-new Tempest offered cool stacked headlights, sleek body lines with minimal trim, and quite possibly the most expensive and complex taillights ever created. Workmanship is excellent throughout, with super straight sheetmetal that only comes from hours of laborious sanding. It's been driven a bit, but that only means that you don't have to be afraid to take it out-someone has already put the first mark on the paint for you. The chrome is equally brilliant, standing out from the red paint like jewelry, and all the correct GTO badges have been restored to their proper locations. If you haven't seen a Parchment interior as rendered by Pontiac, you're in for a real treat with this GTO. Not quite white and not quite tan, it's a spectacular intermediate shade that's incredibly inviting. With diagonal stitching and embossed Pontiac chevrons in the seatbacks, it looks like it belongs in a car costing three times as much as this one does. Black carpets and a matching dash help with the elegant look, and the sport wood steering wheel, rally gauges, and center console emphasize the European influences that shaped the GTO in the early years. Everything is, of course, brand new, since this was originally a code 213 black interior. The rally gauges have been rebuilt, including the factory tachometer, and the automatic transmission features the his/hers shifter for manual shifting. An AM/FM/cassette stereo (original 1965 radio included) is in the center of the dash, a nice upgrade over the original, and a newer black convertible top has been fitted. With a new mat, matching spare tire and wheel, and a jack assembly, the trunk is detailed for show. The engine is a correct YS code 389 that is quite likely the original engine. As is common, the numbers were lost when the block was decked, but given the condition of the car pre-restoration, it doesn't appear to be a replacement piece. This car still features the original matching numbers exhaust manifolds, intake, and carter 4bbl carb still reside under the hood. At any rate, it was given a full show-worthy makeover after the rebuild, including Pontiac Blue on the block, correct chrome valve covers and air cleaner, and proper fittings throughout. A fresh aluminized dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers gives it a wonderful sound and correct side splitter tips. The TH400 3-speed automatic and 12-bolt rear with 3.23 were part of the heavy-duty GTO package, making it durable as well as quick. The original steel wheels have been upgraded to period Rallys wearing 225/70/14 redline radials. With full documentation from PHS, restoration photos, and receipts, you can take this GTO home and enjoy it without worries. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
