1965 Pontiac GTO coupe. This iconic muscle car changed the automotive world when it tore up the pavement on the unofficial drag strip called Woodward Ave. Soon after, everyone wanted the chance to drive one of the fastest cars on the road. This is a wonderful, well cared for example that has benefitted from a thorough restoration and well thought out upgrades. It is a well documented 389 Tri-Power, 4 speed car and sports the Hurst Edition package. Additional equipment includes power steering, quick ratio steering, power brakes, bucket seats, center console, rally gauge cluster, tinted glass, retractable seat belts, woodgrain steering wheel, transistor ignition, rear window de-fogger and more. The car presents beautifully in its original color of Bluemist Slate with a Blue interior.

The WS code Tri-Power engine was enhanced by famed Royal Pontiac mechanic and race driver, Milt Shornak. The heads were prepared by known Pontiac specialists Butler Performance. It was bored and stroked to 454ci. Additional modifications included Comp roller cam and lifters, Aluminum radiator, MSD Ignition and ceramic coated headers. The engine retains it stock appearance with its chrome valve covers and correct triple 2 barrel carburetors. The result of these improvements produced a dyno run of 456 hp. The engine runs fantastic and delivers outstanding performance and incredible sound. The Muncie 4 speed transmission with the Hurst shifter operates as it should with a positive, smooth feel. The posi-traction rear end is equipped with 3.55:1 gears.

The body is in excellent condition and painted in its original color of Bluemist Slate. There are no signs of rust, repair or previous damage. The paint is beautiful with great shine and depth. The underside is very clean and painted in the appropriate satin chassis black. The interior is presented in its original blue color. Door panels, seats headliner, dash board and carpet all appear excellent and stock. Only the 2 accessory gauges mounted under the dash stray from a totally factory presentation. The original AM radio was replaced with a stock looking push button unit that conceals a modern blu tooth digital system. New Redline radial tires are mounted to the extremely rare Hurst wheels. An additional set of 4 American Racing wheels with new BF Goodrich T/A radials is also included with this car.

This is an excellent GTO that looks fantastic and has all the right components for performance and reliable cruising. It is ready to be enjoyed today. Contact us for a live video tour of this car.
