For Sale: 1964 Pontiac GTO in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1964 Pontiac GTO hardtop is the first year for this muscle car legend, and this one was born with an awesomely aggressive color combo. And because this coupe is so significant, they took the time to give it a comprehensive restoration that was completed only about 60 miles ago. So this one has an award-ready fresh style everywhere from its Tri-Power V8 to the working AM radio.

We all love telling the story of how the first-ever Pontiac GTO was a bit of a secret car. They violated GM's rules about the largest motors in lighter cars. But as much as stealthy as the creation was, the person who ordered this one knew exactly what it was. After all, Starlight Black is a truly sinister color befitting of the coupe that would launch the muscle car segment. In fact, we have the PHS (Pontiac Historic Services) documentation that shows this one is wearing its correct color combo, and it tells us a lot more about how this was on day one. We'll get into more of those details in a moment, but right now, it's good to appreciate the level of investment that has gone into what you see today. This GTO is fresh from a restoration that made sure the panels are straight, the gaps are even, the glass is clear, the weather-stripping is fresh, and the doors close with confidence. So the high gloss black loves to highlight a full quality presentation. And as sinister as this car might appear, there are still plenty of bright spots. The chrome looks amazing on the Wide-Track front end, hood vents, rear bumper, and all the correct badging. It has a true vintage style, right down to the spinner hubcaps and redline tires.

Those tires are also a hint at the factory-correct full red interior. We love this look because red and black are the two best colors on a powerful car, and this one delivers them both in the best way. And because they made such a solid investment inside, you'll love keeping all the windows down on this pillar-less hardtop. The fresh upholstery, plush carpet, taut headliner, smooth dash, and intricate door panels are part of great-looking fundamentals. It really is a detail-oriented presentation, right down to the working clock, dome light, and AM radio. And while this has the correct badging everywhere from the floor mats to above the glovebox, the real reason you know it's a true GTO is the tingle of performance you get when slipping into the bucket seat. The thin/grippy steering wheel, floor shifter, and machine-turned gauge panel are all there to get your heart pumping a little faster.

The 389 cubic-inch V8 in the engine bay is what started the revolution. This car features its year-correct block and it's properly dressed in the Pontiac light blue block and shiny valve covers. But that's not what really caught your attention. Instead, you and everyone else will be marveling at the optional triple-deuce carburetor setup. And those PHS Docs show this is a Tri-Power car from the factory! With an engine bay that looks this well presented, it should be no surprise that this GTO fires up eagerly. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control, and the dual exhaust gives a growl that did make people think there was a tiger under the hood. The big V8 was all about moving this coupe around with some serious authority. But you can see in all the pictures, including the undercarriage, that this one looks like it hasn't turned a wheel in aggression since its restoration. So such a fresh car is great for the shows, too.

Here's a first-year GTO with its correct motor and big investments into keeping it looking and feeling great. This is turn-key ready to be a head-turner wherever you go. Call today!!!
