Default 1965 gto

I am not a Pontiac expert but I知 listing my 74 year old dads 1965 GTO. He always wanted a GTO so 5 years ago when we found this rust free,Arizona,all born with drivetrain project he bought it and started the restoration. The intent was to keep the car forever but as you know things change. It is documented with PHS documentation and a copy of the Arizona title. To start with the body was amazing with not a spot of rust on it with the exception of the trunk which was not bad but he did replace it. The rest of the body is beautiful. Small items like the carb.,radiator, heads intake are original to the car. He added power steering,power brakes and the rally wheels. The original wheels and steering box go with the car. The frame and suspension were powder coated so the colors are not totally the correct gloss but the underneath is as clean as I致e seen. When original parts could not be re-used NOS and reproduction were put on the car. I知 very proud of the restoration that he did as the car turned out excellent. There were many hours spent trying to make sure the car was put back as correct as possible. The paint has awesome shine and the body is straight. The engine was re-built and was broke in on a dyno. The interior was completely replaced and looks fantastic. The options are listed on the PHS paperwork. I知 sure I have left major details out but I can answer your questions via email or phone. Priced at $65,000.00. Thanks Yenko. Shane. PM me if you need questions answered. Sorry for the sideways pics.

Outstanding job on this resto..... I need a GTO specialist to jump in here. I cannot remember seeing a WHITE 65 GOAT......EVER. And, the second car I owned was a Red 65 Convertible
Anyone know the numbers on a white car?

Very nice; best wishes on the sale.

I'm sorry to be the one to point this out, but the front seat cushions (and maybe the seat backs) are swapped side for side.

The stripe pattern should start together at the forward edge and move outboard as you move rearward. Similarly the seat back should start wide at the bottom and angle in as you go up. The rear seat pattern should match.

Don't feel bad; normally you would be able to use the rear seat as an example, but one of the aftermarket suppliers made a batch of incorrect rear seat covers and messed a lot of folks up. I had a hard time finding a photo on google which was done correctly.

Correct orientation is shown here:

I'm not much on production numbers but they made a ton of white ones.

In fact, the first five new '65 GTOs I saw were all white.
