The Atlanta Showroom is offering this 1965 Pontiac GTO for sale. You know "the note," scrawled on the backside of whatever is available and left wedged beneath the windshield wiper blade of some irresistible object of desire. "If you decide to sell this car, please call me..." Then comes the waiting, the hoping. Often there's no response, but every once in a while...you get the chance. This Tri-Power 389ci V-8 is mated to Tremec TKO-600 5 speed. The top end of the engine was rebuilt in 2008 and has receipt. This Goat has a Ken Harrison Stereo and front speakers, a desert cooler radiator, front power disc brakes, power steering, a new gas tank, new carpet, and new red line tires. The Tiger. The Goat. GeeTo. The Great One. The Humbler. Call it what you will, but when the Pontiac GTO was introduced to America in September 1963, it created an entirely new market segment that sparked a reaction throughout the auto industry. Today we know that reaction as the muscle-car era. By 1966, all the domestic automobile manufacturers had their response to the GTO. Some were good, some were hastily slapped together, and others missed the mark altogether. It could be argued that none of them possessed the combination of performance, style, image, and affordability of the GTO. Options include: AM/FM radio, power brakes, power steering, seat belts, vinyl interior, radial tires, and aluminum wheels. To view the car in greater detail, including 100+ HD photos and HD video, please visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For more information please call the Atlanta showroom at 678-894-4833.
