FACTORY CORRECT COLORS W/ MATCHING #'S 389/348HP V8, ORIG TRI POWER CAR, 5 SPD!!
As a member of the first generation of GTOs, it's considered by some automotive historians to be the very model that prompted the muscle car war and has been as strongly linked with asphalt-bound exploits as perhaps any other car that you can think of, but this 1964 Pontiac GTO's appeal is about far more than history or folklore. It features an inspired drivetrain that combines premium and original stock components with well-chosen add-ons, as well as a great looking appearance both inside and out, and would be an outstanding acquisition for a true classic car aficionado who also puts a high premium on the driving experience.
When you first view its grenadier red exterior, you'll likely be taken with the outstanding balance it strikes - it's actually the very color this Pontiac rolled out with, but at the same time, it's got a custom, "stock-plus" vibe to it. In good form, with a great shine from front to back, its glow is matched in intensity by its clean, straight chrome trim, as well as the level bumpers both fore and aft. Step up closer and you'll see how the body contours on both sides remain impressively even as you trace them along the entire length of the car - a great sign that all is well with this venerable Pontiac's alignment. While you really can't match the sensation of open air motoring on a nice day, with just clouds and sky above you, in more challenging weather, it's reassuring to know that the white power convertible top raises into place without argument to display its unblemished appearance that also includes a very clear rear plastic window.
The black vinyl interior will beckon you to fire this beauty up and get out on the road. Fortunately for a car with such an inspired design, everything remains largely in its stock configuration, with bucket seats in front and a bench seat in back that are comfortable and have plenty of life remaining. The few add-ons, including the wood grain Pontiac steering wheel and trio of aftermarket gauges sitting at the front of the center console to complement their very readable stock counterparts in the textured chrome instrument cluster, only add to the vintage ambience inside. A full-sized spare appearing to have its entire tread life remaining sits securely in the spacious trunk, whose unmarred floor and wheel houses provide evidence that no shifting cargo has been allowed to roam around in back.
Raise the hood and you'll find one of Pontiac's most heralded powerplants in the roomy engine bay - a 389 cubic inch V8 featuring the Tri Power option – a trio of two-barrel Rochester carbs sitting atop the intake manifold. It's a potent combination, churning out 348 horsepower, and it displays its fine tuning via quick starts, smooth idle and a great sound. This drivetrain has versatility to match its power, as the engine is paired with a Tremec 5-speed transmission known for its power-handling capability and featuring an overdrive gear for effortless highway cruising. The rear end's 3.55 gears are perfectly suited to the transmission resulting in a great pairing to afford good off the line acceleration without driving top end RPMs too high. This American muscle car classic sits on a set of 15" American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, outfitted with BF Goodrich TA radials.
