Representing the second year of the original GTO, the 1965 version of “The Great One” sported a number of key differences over the ’64. Stacked headlights, a larger, single hood scoop and new taillights on a slightly longer body were the most obvious, while tweaks to both the 4-barrel- and Tri-Power versions of the 389 V8 boosted output slightly. Here we have a gorgeous ’65 GTO restomod that provides the best of both worlds – a super clean and original stock appearance along with worthwhile upgrades that notably improve performance and safety. The included PHS documentation confirms this as a real deal GTO that was originally a 389 4-barrel / automatic car that now boasts Tri-Power induction on the rebuilt engine. Originally a Cameo Ivory car with a red interior, the GTO was given a high-quality respray in a handsome gun metal blueish/gray that must be seen. The body is arrow straight and the sheet metal and underside of the car are clean and solid as a rock. The chrome bumpers, various emblems and stainless-steel trim also look great. A set of polished five-spoke 15-inch wheels wearing meaty BFG T/As finish off the car. Inside presents just as nice as the outside, with the Parchment upholstery and door panels setting off the black carpet and dash. The factory A/C has been refurbished and blows cold A three-spoke, genuine wood-rimmed steering wheel is a tasteful upgrade while a T-handle Hurst shifter hints at the fun this Goat is ready to provide. Under the scooped hood is a 389 that was rebuilt and fitted with the Tri-Power setup. The beefy V8 is now matched to a five-speed manual transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels via a 3.08:1 geared Safe-T-Track rear end. This powertrain combination provides the best of both worlds -- blistering acceleration along with relaxed high-speed cruising. Power four-wheel, cross-drilled disc brakes provide stopping power unheard of in 1965. If you’re looking for a classic GTO that checks all the boxes – looks, condition, performance and key updates -- then it doesn’t get much better than this gorgeous Goat.
