You won't mind that this Pontiac resto-mod isn't a real GTO - it's better! With a rockin' 462 cubic inch V8 under the hood, a 6-speed manual transmission, and classic good looks, it'll be easy to catch the guy in the late-model Camaro asleep at the wheel and truly have some fun.
Nothing stays under the radar better than silver, and it always looks good doing it. The hardtop styling is one of Pontiac's better designs of the '60s, and makes for the ideal performance coupe today. The car's subtle, which is great for having fun, but at shows people will be attracted to its understated beauty which is emphasized by great attention to detail. Body lines are sharply defined, gaps are excellent, and everybody loves the Goat. A black pinstripe highlights the simplicity of the car and shows off the neat kink just behind the doors, a detail often overlooked at a casual glance. 1965 GTOs used what were perhaps the most expensive taillight lenses ever created, and all the proper GTO markings were installed to help complete the illusion, from the blacked-out grille to the badges on the front fenders.
The illusion vanishes when you climb inside, because today it's 100% state-of-the-art in performance. Deeply contoured leather bucket seats are designed for aggressive driving and hold you in place like they're covered in Velcro, and you'll note they've been upholstered to mimic the original diagonal-pattern used by the factory. The original instrument panel remains, but it's stuffed full of Auto Meter gauges and an AM/FM/CD head unit. A center console was fabbed up and installed over the shifter for the Richmond 6-speed, and incorporates a center armrest for comfort. The A/C blows ice cold, too, so you can drive this one like your daily driver, and you'll grin like an escaped mental patient ever minute of your commute. And just in case, the beautifully finished trunk carries a matching alloy wheel and tire, as well as the battery and access to the custom 30-gallon fuel cell.
The work of art under the hood started out as a 1970 400 cubic inch motor, but has been hogged out to a massive 462 cubic inches. Dressed in Pontiac Turquoise, it's not really designed to look stock, but it's a nice tip of the hat anyway. Everything else has either been polished or chrome plated, the firewall has been smoothed, and all of it has been painted to match the body. Backed by the aforementioned 6-speed, it feeds a 9-inch Ford rear with 3.50 gears inside, with stopping duties handled by discs at all four corners. The 16-inch Budnik wheels are just the right size for subtlety, and wear 225/55/16 front and 255/50/16 rear tires.
