 Vehicle Description
We all know that tribute cars are a great way to own and drive a legend without the massive cash it requires to buy the real thing, but this 1965 Pontiac LeMans convertible is one of the more convincing GTO tributes weve seen. Its not meant to be an exact duplicate, but with a 389 Tri-Power V8, gorgeous red paint, and a top that goes down, nobodys going to be asking questions about casting numbers.



The color is Montero Red and if youre going to drive a 60s muscle car with a top that goes down, theres really no point in trying to be subtle. GM styling was on a roll in 65, with stacked headlights making their debut and the Tempest/GTO benefitted from a major restyling to make one of the best-looking Goats of all. Panel fit is pretty darned good all around, particularly for a 50-year-old convertible and those massive quarters are very, very straight. A black pinstripe highlights the cars length and forward-canted headlights, as well as the subtle kick-up right behind the doors, adding interest, and, of course, all the proper GTO badges were installed in their correct locations. The grille, hood scoop, and incredibly intricate taillights are all accurate enough to fool most onlookers, and the condition of the chrome will convince people that the big money was spent on the restoration.



Black buckets with their distinctive Pontiac diagonal stitching anchor a very correct interior. Reproduction seat covers fit snugly on the low-back buckets and show only very minor signs of use, while the rear bench looks virtually new. The fat wood-rimmed steering wheel isnt quite correct, but the three-spoke design has a racy 60s appearance, and you know they went the extra mile with the correct GTO gauges in the dash. Theres also an accessory tach mounted on the steering column with the vents for the A/C under the dash where they mostly stay out of sight. The center console and dash are covered in fairly convincing wood appliques that are a good match to the steering wheel, and even inside they made sure to add the proper GTO badges on the dash and door panels. Its equipped with a very well-fitted power convertible top with a crystal clear rear window and matching black boot. The trunk is also finished correctly with a reproduction mat and full-sized spare.



The engine is a proper 389 cubic inch V8 topped with three 2-barrel carbs under correct individual chrome air cleaners. Pontiac Turquoise paint, chrome valve covers, and other details make for a convincing presentation, although the upgraded Accel ignition system spoils the illusion a little bit. Long-tube headers feed a mellow-sounding dual exhaust system that sounds quite correct. Youll note that the A/C system uses a modern compressor and R134a refrigerant, so its reliable and easy to service, even though as a convertible, you probably wont use it all that often. The engine is backed by a proper TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and the original rear end, so the drivetrain is pretty tough. Flashy vintage ET mag wheels give it a period performance look and wear 225/70/14 BFG radials all around.



A great-looking tribute car that gets all the big stuff right so you can enjoy the legend without the legendary price tag. Sometimes less really is more. Call today!
