1965 Pontiac GTO

Pontiac Historic Services build sheets are the only way to tell which cars left the factory as real GTOs


The exemplary 1965 GTO offered here is one of only 11,311 Pontiac GTOs that came as convertibles, just 15% of production in 1965. How many came with the ultimate 389-ci, 360-hp Tri-Power V8 and four-speed manual transmission is unknown, but it is certainly relatively few.
This example’s other equipment includes a console, wood-grained steering wheel, and Rallye II wheels with wide oval F70-14 Firestone Super Sport Redline tires that make it even more unusual and visually distinctive.
Finished in Montero Red with black interior, this Pontiac GTO is a visual statement that backs up its appearance with performance. The owner describes it as an original, unrestored car that he has owned for the past two decades.
