1965 Pontiac GTO

VIN: 237375Z110398

Check out this pristine 1965 Pontiac GTO! This GTO has undergone a complete, no expense spared restoration! The previous owner was an Automotive and Harley Davidson technician. The obsession came naturally to him through his dad who raised him with the belief that Pontiac's were above all other forms of transportation. In 1992, The previous owner received a call from a friend at a shop asking if he wanted a '65 GTO that was almost the exact car his father had when he was growing up. He agreed, and the car was trailered to his shop so that he and the GTO could get reacquainted. The decision was made to bring the Goat back to amazing form so he began a five - year search to collect as many desired pieces as he could for his new project. When the final item was located, the Pontiac was stripped to its bare shell and set for a complete makeover. Upon the A-body's arrival post media blasting, Vice's Collision in Sacramento, California, went to work. Next, all the hand - picked frame and suspension parts were simply coated to look like stock. For five years the '65 sat, waiting for the day the project would begin again. The owner decided to go with the philosophy of “all good things come to those who wait,” and so it was in 2004 that this good thing was jump started! With the chassis work previously completed and the body straight, the motor was the next item of attention. A healthy Pontiac 455ci was cherry picked out of a '72 Grand Prix SJ and deemed a good starting point upon which Smedding Performance in Rancho Cordova, California, would base a buildup. The 455 grew to 462 cubes with a 0.030 overbore to clean up the cylinder walls. Keeping everything well lubricated–even in the turns due to the suspension mods – a baffled oil pan is secured to the bottom of the engine. With the engine work completed, the next pairs of hands to touch the car belonged to Phil Nemanic and John Caveza at Greater Sierra Upholstery in Rocklin, California. While an Ames carpet and interior kit was employed to replace worn stock items, for a one of a kind look, Chris picked up a set of Toyota Celica GT buckets and had Phil and John recover them in black vinyl. Utilizing new cloth inserts found in the Z - 24 Cavalier, the rear and front seats were matched to the paint through the maroon zigzags dotting the landscape of the material. Topping it all off, a Pontiac steering wheel was mounted on the stock steering column. Stock '65 GTO Rally gauges peek from the dash, the entire set returned to factory perfection by the guys at Redline Gauge Repair. This is one gorgeous Pontiac GTO built to show and go.
