For Sale: 1965 Pontiac GTO in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Pontiac Lemans GTO has plenty of V8 power, an aggressive style, the correct investments, and the PHS docs to show it's the real deal. It all makes for the kind of hardtop that you're going to want to take for a drive, and it truly has that kind of spirit that loves to hit the road.

The new-for-1965 vertical stack headlights, intricate tail panel, and wraparound chrome bumpers all bring together the kind of car that makes people impressed with this muscle machine. It's all wrapped around an aggressive Montero Red that has the right mix of boldness and driver-ready style. And that's how to see this full car. The price leaves room in your budget for improvements, but we already like how this muscle car legend looks good without making us nervous to drive it. And the full package is complete, right down to the hood scoop and the badging that sets a true GTO apart. Plus, there are the right subtle upgrades. The polished dual exhaust tips hint at the upgraded power, and while the wheels look like classic Rally II units, they are really larger modern alloys that allow you to fit better driving tires.

The pillarless hardtop means you can roll down all the windows so that people can see the bright parchment white interior against the bold red exterior. It's the kind of vibrant package that's perfect for a car that loves to go for a long cruise and hit all the hot spots along the way. Like the exterior, it's a driver-quality package, and it also has a very vintage style, right down to the correct Pontiac upholstery with arrowhead emblems in the seatbacks. You'll appreciate the classic-oriented pieces, like the front bucket seats, a center console with floor shifter, and sporty round gauges. These are joined by upgrades that make it a better driver, like an AM/FM/cassette stereo with aux input and auxiliary readouts neatly installed under the dash.

Pontiac's 400 cubic-inch V8 was part of the first-gen GTO, but not in the '65. So you get the classic style but with added displacement. It's quite attractive thanks to the blue block, newer components, and Pontiac cast valve covers. But what you'll really like are the performance upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and X-pipe dual exhaust with Pypes mufflers There are even nice supporting components, like an MSD distributor and a large aluminum radiator. It's a solid driver with solid cruising features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. And the modern ZR-rated performance tires really deliver an enhanced grip.

The sale comes complete with Pontiac Historic Service (PHS) Documentation. This is the cool GTO that has the power and poise you want. So you don't want to let this hardtop slip away. Call today!!!
