2 DOOR HARDTOP
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #265 - This 1965 GTO hardtop is one only a few cars that were painted the special Tiger Gold promotional color from Pontiac Division that is identified by the 2 in the paint area of the body tag. It is also confirmed on the PHS paperwork that accompanies this sale. Additionally, this car has received a high-quality professional restoration. It was originally built with the GTO 389cid engine and 4-speed transmission. During restoration it was updated with the legendary 360hp Pontiac Tri-Power. Originally ordered as a dealer showroom display vehicle by Roc Cutri Pontiac in Southgate, CA. When sold, this car has remained continuously in Southern California and Arizona ever since, as evidenced by the rock-solid body. The entire drivetrain was rebuilt. The body of this vehicle was completely gone over and the body fit is better than new. Once prepared, the car was given a fresh coat of the correct Tiger Gold Code 2 paint, using the best base coat/clear coat paint. While the engine was out of the car, it was sent out and completely rebuilt. The engine block was honed and new pistons, rings and bearings installed. The original cylinder heads were given a fresh valve job and new valve springs. Everything was reassembled and the entire engine assembly was given a coat of the correct Pontiac blue engine paint.
