1965 Pontiac GTO Convertible | Ardell Brown Classic Carswww.ardellscars.com/1965-pontiac-gto-convertible/This is a custom restored 1965 Pontiac GTO that is fabulous in every detail. It is finished in a custom deep gold paint with white interior. It features bucket seats and console front and rear, 4 speed transmission, Vintage A/C, tilt wheel, power windows and Dakota Digital dash gauges. Underhood details include a smoothed firewall and March billet pulley system. Other custom features are shaved door handles and Hurst wheels.The Tempest line, including the GTO, was restyled for the 1965 model year, adding 3.1 inches (79mm) to the overall length while retaining the same wheelbase and interior dimensions. It had Pontiac's characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. Overall weight increased about 100lb (45kg). The brake lining area increased nearly 15%. Heavy-duty shocks were standard, as was a stronger front antisway bar. The dashboard design was changed, and an optional rally gauge cluster ($86.08) added a more legible techometer and oil pressure gauge. An additional option was a breaker less transistor ignition.The restyled GTO had a new simulated hood scoop. A seldom seen dealer-installed option consisted of a metal underhood pan and gaskets to open the scoop, making it a cold air intake. The scoop was low enough that its effectiveness was questionable (it was unlikely to pick up anything but boundary layer air), but it allowed more of the engine's roar to escape. Another cosmetic change was the black "egg-crate" grille.
