When it comes to classic cars from the beginning of the muscle car era, the word unrestored usually carries some negative connotations.
Images of rust-covered body panels, stuck pistons, and sludge-filled oil pans are immediately brought to mind. While this is all good and well if you can get a good deal on something in disrepair and have the time to restore it. However, if the thought of performing a pain-staken restoration on a nearly 60-year-old car makes your head spin, your classic car ownership options are real slim. Unfortunately, not many people had the forethought or the ability to properly store and maintain these cars but every once in a while one comes up for sale that was obviously meticulously cared for.
This 1964 Pontiac GTO Coupe survivor is an absolute stunner. It is finished in its original red finish and features a black leather interior accented with aluminum trim. Under the hood, the numbers-matching 389-cid engine is topped with the Tri-Power induction system and paired to a 4-speed manual transmission that feeds power to a 3:91:1 posi rear end. While some may find it hard to believe, the current mileage is listed at 0-miles. However, judging by the pictures and the information in the listing, it could be correct if it were a display car that spent its life in a museum or as part of a collection.
One thing is for sure though, this seems to be an awesome example with no rust, damage, or mechanical issues. This car is being offered at Carlisle Auctions’ 2021 Spring Auction and the sale includes a Protecto-Plate, a window sticker, and Pontiac Historic Service or PHS documentation. This is your chance. Collectors and enthusiasts wanting a classic GTO without the struggles of dealing with a restoration can find more information on this car here.
