Take it slow or open up that throttle for some thrills.

It was in 1964 that Pontiac launched the wildly popular GTO. Recognized by many as the first American muscle car, it put affordable power in the hands of enthusiasts. The formula of taking an affordable midsize car and dropping in a big motor caught on quickly, with just about every automaker delivering such a product within a short time. Now it’s your chance to own the second production year of this American classic, a 1965 Pontiac GTO Convertible. The opportunity to own this beautiful vehicle comes through Vicari Auction.

While your average person will be impressed by the sparkling Teal Turquoise body, which is straight as an arrow, what’s under the skin matters even more. The 389ci 4bbl V8 sounds appropriately aggressive with a factory dual exhaust. A four-speed transmission sends this convertible forward with a fury, just like you’d expect with any performance vehicle.

Pairing well with that shiny paint is the even shinier chrome. In classic muscle car styling, the reflective stuff is kept to minimal amounts, most obviously on the bumpers, side mirrors, and a few other trim pieces. An obviously newer black convertible top adds to the exterior appearance when the weather doesn’t allow for open-top cruising. Stacked headlights and the front fascia which comes to a point in the center makes this car distinct. While the hood scoop isn’t functional, it still adds a more intimidating detail to the GTO. Dual tailpipes peak out from the passenger-side rear quarter panel, hinting at the performance aspirations of this Pontiac. Optional Rally wheels with red line tires add a non-descript utilitarian feel to this car.

A factory-correct black interior goes excellently with the exterior. Everything from the carpet to the upholstery looks fresh and clean, so you’re sitting in comfort and style on any trip.

As one of the most recognized American muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is highly collectible and a fantasy vehicle for many. Needless to say, it should continue to appreciate in value for generations. If you want to invest in this car, contact Vicari Auction for details.
