For Sale: 1965 Pontiac LeMans in Columbus, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Cruisin Classics is proud to present this absolutely spectacular 1965 Pontiac LeMans "GTO Tribute". This car started its life as a Teal Turquoise LeMans with a 326 V-8, 2 barrel carburetor, and automatic transmission, but it's a whole lot more than that now! This beauty is now dressed in a deep, glossy Burgundy Mist (PPG#50700, 1965 Pontiac color) paint job that looks fantastic at any distance. The front end is simply iconic - with vertically stacked quad headlights, a split grill with Pontiac logo at the center, and faux air vents on the hood - it looks fast sitting still. The front bumper is in excellent condition and gleams in the light, as do the headlight bezels. Great looks continue down the long laser-straight sides of the car with dual chrome side mirrors, wheel lip molding, drip rail molding, chrome rocker covers, bright window molding, and like-new GTO badges on the fenders and rear 1/4's. Around back you'll find wrap-around rear tail lights that blend into a black and chrome rear trim piece above the shining rear bumper with integrated reverse lights. The gas cap is hidden behind the rear license plate holder. This Pontiac has a great stance as it sits atop grey steel 6-slot Rally wheels with center caps and beauty rings wrapped in Hankook Optimo H725 tires. A lot has changed under the hood since this car rolled off the assembly line. The incredibly clean engine bay is now home to a freshly painted 1970 Pontiac 400ci V-8 (code XH - 350hp) topped with a correct 1965 intake and 1965 tri-power carburetors. Chrome valve covers and air cleaners add some contrast to the blue block. Exhaust flows through 1965 cast manifolds through Flowmaster 40 series mufflers to create an awesome sound. The 400 is mated to a 1968 Muncie 4-speed with a 1965 Hurst shifter that puts the power down via a 10 bolt rear with 3:08 Posi gears. Also under the hood you'll find a power steering unit, a dual resevoir for the manual brakes (disc/drum), a correct GM washer fluid bottle (not hooked up), and newer under-hood matting. When you open the drivers door the courtesy light illuminates the black OEM correct GTO interior. The door panels are both in very good condition and feature arm-rests, crank windows, carpeted bottoms, and GTO badging. The black vinyl bucket seats with Pontiac logos are very comfortable and show no wear. The back seat looks equally as nice and is flanked by arm-rests, ashtrays, and window cranks. Above is a tight black vinyl headliner and below is new looking black hook and loop carpet topped with black vinyl Pontiac floormats in the front and rear. All of the glass is excellent with no scratches or pitting. The windshield and rear window appear new while all of the sideglass has original markings. The driver is treated to an OEM 1965 Pontiac 2-spoke steering wheel with horn ring, chrome accent bands, and a Pontiac logo in the center. The correct GTO dash features a woodgrain surround for the gauge cluster and climate controls. There is a 120mph speedometer with checkered flag logo, an 8K tachometer, and gauges for oil pressure and water temp. The heater blows hot and the fan works as it should. Below the woodgrain is a ribbed chrome section with knobs for lights and wipers, a lighter, an ashtray, and a working factory AM radio. The passenger side of the dash features a grab-handle with GTO badge and a glovebox containing the original protecto-plate and owners manual. Up above are dual visors and a rear-view mirror with day/night switch and down below is a Hurst shifter with black boot and white pattern shift ball. The drivers brake, clutch, and e-brake pedals all have chrome surrounds for a sporty look. Around back you'll find a very clean trunk with a very rare "retractable" light under the lid. It can be slid out of it's holder so you can shine it directionally where you want. Also in the trunk is a vinyl mat, a factory jack, and a full spare on a rally wheel. We also have for this car a copy of the build sheet, title history, and a framed 1965 GTO color advertisement. There are a ton of GTO tribute cars out there, but there are a rare few built to this level - it is really as close as you can come to replicating a 65 GTO. This is an excellent opportunity to buy a GTO tribute that's nicer than most GTO's for a fraction of the cost! Don't let this one pass you by!
