800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1965 Pontiac Lemans GTO has a big 455 V8 and four-on-the-floor. Oh yeah, you know you're already going to love it even before you check out the cool color combo and vintage style of this enhanced muscle car hardtop.
We have the PHS documentation that shows this was born with the GTO option. So it has the pedigree to go with its presence. After all, we love the granddaddy of all muscle machines with its stacked headlights, hood scoop, hardtop profile, full GTO badging, and artful taillight arrangements. This one traded in its factory light blue for something closer to Pontiac's deeper/darker shades that looks great on a powerful coupe. It's a driver-quality finish, and the darker shade makes for a better contrast to have the bumpers, bezels, rockers, and other brightwork stand out a little more. A nice set of polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add to both the sporty feeling and classic chrome style.
The light blue inside against the dark blue exterior gives this muscle car a sophisticated color combo. The interior was an update later in life, but it was done with a careful eye. The result is the classic premium Pontiac arrowhead pattern on the seatbacks, but upholstery that feels far fresher than 1965. And a well-done look on the door panels, headliner, and darker carpeting add to the quality impression. There's plenty of the right classic pieces that are still there for display, including the AM radio. But more than just vintage, this one also remembers how to be a great driver's machine. That's why you have bucket seats, a center console in-between, an upgraded sports steering wheel, and a Hurst floor shifter.
The engine bay has a tidy style that makes it easy to put on display. And speaking of display, those three bright air grabbers in a row have the unmistakable look of Tri-Power. This one is currently set up for breathing through the middle carb, but you have the full package for those who want to unleash it all in the future. Regardless of how this one inhales, it's feeding a big motor. This GTO now has a larger 455 cubic-inch V8. This power package has been installed with care, and it even has good supporting components like an aluminum radiator and a new water pump. The full control of the four-speed manual transmission really makes this fun out on the road. Add in power steering, power brakes, and front discs w/drilled & slotted rotors, and this powerful GTO is a fine all-around classic.
The sale comes complete with the important Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) paperwork. It's a distinct big power GTO that knows how to leave a lasting impression. So don't let it slip away, call today!
