Now, this is a very nice '65 GTO! I'm not going to bore you with a history lesson of the GTO, how it got its name, who's concept it was, etc, etc, etc. Mainly because if you're reading this, you likely know all of those cool points of interest. Furthermore, to explain what a GTO is, and how its concept-to- existence relates to muscle car history would be like explaining who the Beatles were and how they relate to music history. I'll just give you a little synopsis of this particular GTO. Finished in its original factory color of Burgundy in a base/coat, clear/coat, it looks fantastic. All if the chrome and bright work are present and look great too. The interior appears mostly original and also matches the data plate code of black. The engine although not the original runs great, doesn't smoke, and has some nice upgrades such as an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, Headman long tube headers, and a 268 Comp Cam.

This combination sounds perfect through the dual exhaust with stainless Magnaflo mufflers. The M21 close ratio Muncie 4 speed has been rebuilt, and as such shifts very nice and smooth with the assistance of a new Mcleod clutch. The differential, the original case and gears, has been upgraded with new bearings and an Auburn limited slip unit. Additionally, this GTO has had some nice maintenance items performed to add to its overall quality. Such as new weatherstripping, door alignment adjustment, new aluminum radiator, new heater core, tune up, new seat belts front and rear, to name a few. All of the above are good and important facts for this GTO, but what really needs to be addressed is how well, and how nice this car runs and drives. It really is easy to drive. From the ease of the clutch to the smooth shifting transmission, to the deep sounding velvet roar of the engine. No odd squeaks or rattle to complain about, just a solid, clean, good lookin' GTO.
