Vehicle Description

1964 Pontiac GTO - 6.5L V8 - Factory 4 Speed Manual Transmission - White Over Blue Interior - Built In California On February 11th 1964 (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1964 Pontiac GTO on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of this vehicle due to website limitations.

Tempest was quite a car. Not only did it have gobs of brute horsepower, but it looked well-built and had a luxurious, comfortable, all-vinyl interior. In addition, it rode and handled as a high-performance car should. It was controllable and gave us a feeling of safety under most conditions, although it would require special care and handling when the road's wet or icy. Little did the Motor Trend folks know they were piloting a car that would launch a decade of Detroit's muscle-car wars. Before long, Tempest was gone, and the new model was known simply by its three-letter name: GTO (pronounced: Goat). Offered here is a magnificent, very rare, numbers-matching, fully restored 1964 GTO hardtop in white over turquoise. Its extensive original RPO factory options list included: tinted glass, front and rear seat belts, bucket seats, insert panel, floor mats, deck emblems, windshield washers, outside rear-view mirror, console, Positraction differential, power brakes, 4-speed manual transmission, dual exhaust system, upgraded steering wheel, power steering, heavy-duty battery, dual horns, illuminated luggage compartment, electric clock, push- button radio, and the GTO option. The car's documented history shows it was manufactured on February 11, 1964 and shipped to the selling dealer-Totem Pontiac in Seattle, Washington-five days later. The car was placed in long-term storage in 1978, and upon removal underwent a documented rotisserie restoration including a rebuild of its original 389 cubic-inch V8 engine, which remains mated to the original 4-speed transmission. This GTO is the real deal in every respect. The quality of the exterior paint is superb. The even gloss across every body panel could only have been achieved through the most professional level of paint application. Remaining original tinted cabin glass is free of cracks or other damage; lighting lenses are similarly clear. All GTO badging is in place and properly located, front, rear, and both sides, notably including the bespoke GTO 6.5 Liter front-fender emblems. Chrome bumpers and trim have been well-kept. Body-panel alignment exceeds factory specifications. Period-correct red-stripe tires (only later to gain the moniker TigerPaws) are mounted, as are full factory chrome wheel covers bearing the Pontiac Motor Division embossed lettering. Inside, the car's turquoise color scheme makes for an excellent complement to the white exterior. All interior appointments are turquoise: the vinyl seat upholstery, the door trim, rear parcel shelf, the cabin carpeting (and accompanying GTO-branded translucent rubber protective mats), the dashboard (trimmed with turned-metal across the four round gauges), even the steering wheel. All interior surfaces display excellent condition with minimal signs of use. The floor-mounted 4-speed transmission shifter (absent the console) is true to the car's performance pedigree. Like the cabin, the car's trunk is spotless, with correct hounds-tooth-pattern vinyl covering the spare tire and the perfect-condition floor. Under the hood, the car's original engine has received the visual enhancement of a chrome air cleaner and valve c
