Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is proud to showcase this stunning 1965 Pontiac GTO Convertible, If you are looking for a 1965 GTO Convertible that is ready to be enjoyed and driven then take a look at this car! This is a frame off cosmetically restored GTO that is meant to be driven and not trailered. It has been beautifully resprayed in Ford scarlet red paint and with a new vinyl top when restored. This GTO was the one to have in 1965 and its still the one to have today, pushing 360Hp from its strong 389ci Tri Powered V8 and mated to a smooth shifting optional 4- speed manual transmission this GTO moves with ease, you can feel the power at your feet. The mixture of great lines , power and sound will surely have heads turning and thumbs up in your direction. All of the chrome shines nicely and shows off the red paint well, accompanied by a good looking set of chromed American Racing wheels with Bf Goodrich redline tires , this Pontiac carries a nice stance. The engine compartment is nice and detailed showing off the 389 that has been painted in Pontiac blue and gives it a new clean look.Going to the interior, it looks like new, being completely re upholstered there are no cracks or wear marks. Seating in the front seat makes you feel like you own the road, in front youll find a nice set of Pontiac floor mats below and above a clean woodgrain dash. Drive it a daily , weekend , or keep it in your collection as a showcar it is completely up to you but dont hesitate to call for more information because this car will not last long.

The Tempest line, including the GTO, was restyled for the 1965 model year, adding 3.1 inches (79 mm) to the overall length while retaining the same wheelbase and interior dimensions. It had Pontiac's characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. Overall weight increased about 100 lb (45 kg). The brake lining area increased nearly 15%. Heavy-duty shocks were standard, as was a stronger front antisway bar. The dashboard design was changed, and an optional rally gauge cluster ($86.08) added a more legible tachometer and oil pressure gauge. An additional option was a breakerless transistor ignition.The 389 engines received revised cylinder heads with re-cored intake passages and high rise intake manifolds, improving breathing. Rated power increased to 335 hp (250 kW) at 5,000 rpm for the base four—barrel engine; the Tri-Power engine was now rated 360 hp (270 kW) at 5,200 rpm. The 'S'-cammed Tri-Power engine had slightly less peak torque rating than the base engine 424 lb·ft (575 N·m) at 3,600 rpm versus 431 lb·ft (584 N·m) at 3,200 rpm. Transmission and axle ratio choices remained the same. The three-speed manual was standard, while two four-speed manual transmissions (wide or close ratio) or two-speed automatic were optional.The restyled GTO had a new simulated hood scoop. A seldom seen dealer-installed option consisted of a metal underhood pan and gaskets to open the scoop, making it a cold air intake. The scoop was low enough that its effectiveness was questionable (it was unlikely to pick up anything but boundary layer air), but it allowed more of the engine's roar to escape. Another cosmetic change was the black "egg-crate" grille.
