It has tons of documentation with it including the PHS paperwork, Build Sheet documents, and receipts.

Our GTO is a documented 389 cubic inch engine that looks as it did when it left the factory with its Tri-Power System that was added (it was originally a four-barrel carb), the Pontiac blue painted correct date coded block, heads, and intake, correct chrome valve covers, factory exhaust manifolds, power steering and power brakes, air conditioning, and dual exhaust.
The 389 in the 1965 factory engines received revised cylinder heads with re-cored intake passages and high-rise intake manifolds, improving breathing. Rated power increased in the Tri-Power engine to 360 horse at 5,200 rpm.
The power goes to the automatic transmission and to the rear end as it rides on Pontiac factory styled Rallye wheels with Pontiac Motor Division center caps and Redline tires for that correct vintage Pontiac look.
One look at the engine and frame of our GTO and you can see the quality restoration and you will hear the rumbling exhaust note exits from the tips that and sounds fantastic.
The interior has been completely freshened in the factory correct black vinyl with the twin front bucket seats and matching rear seat, Black Pontiac steering wheel, Heater/defroster, air conditioning, Radio, Pontiacs great dash with all the factory gauges wrapped in the woodgrain trim, correct chrome floor console with the chrome shifter, black carpeting and door panels, and everything looking new since this is a real time-capsule of a GTO.
Our 1965 GTO has had a near concours restoration, and it shows. The styling for 1965 has Pontiac’s characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights, egg-crate grille, and fantastic trim and rubber.
The Mayfair Maize shade of paint was understated but crisp, and ours is presented in its slick paint, unique one year only factory correct original hood with scoops, “GTO 6.5 Litre” emblems, excellent stainless trim and chrome bumpers, laser-straight body lines, and great fitment.
Considered the true original street performance muscle car, the 1965 GTO like the one we have here at Skyway Classics, remains “The Great One” to many enthusiasts.
