1965 Blue GTO
Why This Car Is Special
The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by American company Pontiac in generations from 1964 to 1974 model years. The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.
For 1965 model years, the GTO was an optional package on the intermediate-sized Pontiac (VIN 237). The blue 1965 GTO is a matching numbers original engine real-deal GTO we have at Skyway Classics that looks as original as the day it was built, with great attention to detail.
The spectacular GTO comes fitted with many factory options including console, bucket seats, dual exhaust, air conditioning, 4-speed transmission, and much more.
The 389 in the 1965 engine received revised cylinder heads with re-cored intake passages and high-rise intake manifolds, improving breathing. Ours is the original numbers matching 389 cubic inch V8 engine with the 4-barrel carb that was rated at 335 horsepower. At some point it was switched over to the more desirable 4-speed, but it is a true YS code engine with the engine stamping number on the rear of the block (9778789) and the YS on the front.
It looks just like it did as it left the factory back then with the correct chrome air cleaner and valve covers, PS, PB, and most other stock Pontiac appointments sitting in a very clean and detailed engine compartment.
One look at the underside of our GTO and see the restoration of the frame and all running components too sand it rides on Pontiac factory Rallye wheels and redline tires with a rumbling exhaust note from the dual exhaust.
The interior has been completely redone in factory correct black vinyl. It has power steering, power brakes, AM/FM Radio, and great wood in the dash and steering wheels, 4-speed Hurst shifter and ivory ball on top, and chrome trim.
The rear seat is matching and it has new carpeting and Pontiac floor mats too.
Our GTO is immaculate, pictures will show that and you will see what we mean when you come see it. It has Pontiac’s characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights, black vinyl top, hood scoop, egg-crate grille, great body lines and paint, fantastic trim and rubber.
