This 1965 Pontiac Tempest GTO Tribute has plenty of V8 power, aggressive style, and a cool red-on-red appearance. It's 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.

Pontiac gave the Tempest the crisp look of a well-defined muscle machine, and so it makes for a good base to create a proper GTO tribute. The new-for-1965 vertical stack headlights, intricate tail panel, wraparound chrome bumpers, and bright Rally II wheels all bring together the kind of car that makes people impressed with this muscle machine. It's all wrapped around an aggressive red that has the right mix of boldness and driver-ready style. Plus, people will really be remembering everything from the correct hood scoop to the badging gives this the proper GTO feel. And of course, the rumbling dual exhaust is what we all expect to hear.

The pillarless hardtop means you can roll down all the windows so that people can see the bold red 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. The full package has a very vintage style, right down to the correct Pontiac upholstery with arrowhead emblems in the seatbacks. There are also the right upgrades. The stereo is now an AM/FM unit with USB and Bluetooth to give you the best in driving music. And the auxiliary readout trio and Hurst floor shifter remind you that this one feels like a GTO under the hood, too.

Pontiac's 400 cubic-inch V8 was part of the first-gen GTO, but not in the '65, and so having this upgrade is already quite a nice benefit. It's quite attractive thanks to the blue block, bright valve covers, and newer components. But what you'll really like are the performance upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding into the dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. The consignor even claims there are new springs, shocks, and ball joints, and the solid feeling out on the road reaffirms this level of investment.

This is the cool GTO tribute that has the power and poise you want. So you don't want to let this hardtop slip away. Call today!!!
