Palmetto Green Metallic ... Black buckets ... Center console ... 389 CID V-8 ... Automatic ... Factory A/C ... Gorgeous restoration ...
There is something unmistakable about the styling of the mid-1960s Pontiacs. From their coke bottle silhouette to their “Wide-Track” stance and quad-stacked headlights, their styling is both immediately recognizable and iconic.
This gorgeous 1965 Pontiac GTO has been refinished in its original color of Palmetto Green Metallic. The base coat/clear coat finish has a beautiful luster that is further enhanced by a tasteful amount of chrome and brightwork that is in very good condition. Its black vinyl top is also in excellent condition, and contrasts nicely with its finish, as do its Black hand painted pinstripes. You’ll also appreciate its optional competition-type steel wheels and BF Goodrich radial T/A raised letter tires, which give the car a nice sporty element.
Sportiness and distinction are not relegated to the exterior of this car, however, as one look inside will attest. Inside its new interior you will find Black vinyl bucket seats and an optional chromed center console. The dashboard is highlighted by genuine wood trim that is in excellent condition, as is its custom sports steering wheel. Its auxiliary Sunpro gauges will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll also appreciate its AM/FM stereo and trunk-mounted 10-disc CD changer. This GTO is also equipped with factory air conditioning. Its rubber Pontiac floor mats also add a nice touch of authenticity to the interior.
Under the hood you’ll find a 389 CID V-8 mated to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission with a 3.55 rear axle ratio. Fuel is supplied by a four-barrel carburetor, and its aluminizeddual exhaust will reward you with a satisfying exhaust note. Its optional power steering and power brakes will help you corner on those twisty two lanes with ease. Best of all, this GTO runs and drives as well as it looks.
Previously a California car, this GTO benefits from a complete restoration, and has been enjoyed by its most recent owner for the past nine years, always receiving the best of care.
One item of note is that the air conditioning has a new compressor, but could use a charge. In addition, total mileage is unknown.
If mid-1960s Pontiac muscle that is ready to enjoy is what your desire, this 1965 GTO is the car for you!
