This is an excellent example of the car many auto enthusiasts credit with starting the muscle car boom of the 1960s. By the end of the era all four major American auto companies were competing in the muscle car category. The success of the GTO established Pontiac's brand as a performance based line with great sales numbers.
Painted a bright Montara Red, this two door GTO hardtop comes with complete PHS documentation. The owner says this vehicle has been completely restored and repainted in the Montara red, a Pontiac color, rather than the original Capri Gold and the interior has been redone in Parchment and black to create an even more striking GTO.
According to the owner, this is a numbers matching car with the original 389 cu. in. V8 producing 360 hp. with the Tri-power carburetor option (3/2). The four-speed transmission features the desirable wide ratio gearing. The differential axle ratio is 3.55/code F.
The 1965 GTO featured improved brakes with heavy-duty shocks and a stronger front sway bar. This car has power brakes as well as power steering.
The dashboard features the optional Rally Gauge Cluster with tachometer as well as the Custom Sports Steering Wheel. Bucket seats in the front and a bench seat in the back. There is also an AM/FM radio.
New red line tires add to the look of this exceptional GTO. This car is a certain award winner and will turn the head of any muscle car enthusiast.
