BELIEVED ORIGINAL TRI-POWER, 389 V8, 4SPD TRANS, POWER STEERING/BRAKE, PHS DOCS!

Is the first still the best? This 1964 Pontiac GTO convertible makes a convincing argument that icons have no fear of time, particularly when they're packing a period-correct, thumping 389/Tri-Power V8 and a 4-speed gearbox. Frame-off restored and featuring a Gulfstream Aqua paint job, a sporty black bucket seat interior, and a top that goes down, this iconic Goat is a terrific example of one of the rarest things on Earth: an investment you can drive, enjoy, and watch appreciate.

OK, the restoration is a few years old (estimated at 13 years), but that only means its trailer queen days are over. Seriously, is there anything sadder than the father of all muscle cars spending its life in a garage being wiped with a diaper? No, what you should do with this Gulfstream Aqua Goat is go out and burn some hi-test and listen to the cackle of the dual exhaust. With that being said, this is still a heck of a head-turner – any former show-quality rig that was frame-off restored and impeccably cared for typically is – but it's acquired a few 'character' marks through the years. It's all mostly minor stuff, with a couple of blemishes and imperfections found here and there, but it's still an ... Please ask for the full description.

BELIEVED ORIGINAL TRI-POWER, 389 V8, 4SPD TRANS, POWER STEERING/BRAKE, PHS DOCS!

Is the first still the best? This 1964 Pontiac GTO convertible makes a convincing argument that icons have no fear of time, particularly when they're packing a period-correct, thumping 389/Tri-Power V8 and a 4-speed gearbox. Frame-off restored and featuring a Gulfstream Aqua paint job, a sporty black bucket seat interior, and a top that goes down, this iconic Goat is a terrific example of one of the rarest things on Earth: an investment you can drive, enjoy, and watch appreciate.

OK, the restoration is a few years old (estimated at 13 years), but that only means its trailer queen days are over. Seriously, is there anything sadder than the father of all muscle cars spending its life in a garage being wiped with a diaper? No, what you should do with this Gulfstream Aqua Goat is go out and burn some hi-test and listen to the cackle of the dual exhaust. With that being said, this is still a heck of a head-turner – any former show-quality rig that was frame-off restored and impeccably cared for typically is – but it's acquired a few 'character' marks through the years. It's all mostly minor stuff, with a couple of blemishes and imperfections found here and there, but it's still an eye-catching, strong driver-quality Goat that's incredibly slick and looks like a million bucks when it's cruising down Main Street with the top down. As a first-year, real-deal GTO convertible (in '64 and '65, the GTO was an option on the LeMans, and this one has the correct trim tag and PHS docs to prove its pedigree), it's definitely an A-list collector's piece, so when the restoration was done back a few years ago, it was completed to a very high standard and then enjoyed, which is exactly the right way to do it. You can see in our photos that it's quite straight and the paint has a great shine that you'll take pleasure in waxing on Saturday afternoons before hitting the cruise spots that evening. The complex taillights were beautifully restored, all the chrome and brightwork shines up nicely, and the proper GTO badges are in place – so get ready to answer all the "Is it a real GTO?" questions. Fortunately, you can answer, "Yes! Now please clean up your drool spot, sir, this is NOT a Wendy's."

Inside, the complementary black bucket seat interior works on a number of levels. With a Hurst cue ball shifter in between the comfy front seats, there's no doubt about this car's sporting intentions, and this was right about the time when Pontiac perfected the luxury/muscle equation, so it's easy to spend a lot of time inside. All the seats were covered in OEM-spec reproduction seat covers that are broken in but not worn out, so they look inviting and still show pretty darn well (although after years under the bright Texas sun, the black vinyl – particularly on the rear seat – isn't quite as dark and deep as it was when it was new), and the flanking door panels and plush black carpets match up nicely and tie the entire cabin together. That factory center console is an extremely desirable piece, even more so because it still houses the original Manifold Vacuum gauge still in place, and all the bright trim and pop-metal that accents the entire unit still shines up brightly as the convertible's natural centerpiece. The 4-spoke, wood-rimmed steering wheel is likely this Poncho's original (yet another very rare piece that rarely survived the ravages of time), and beyond it is a Pontiac performance trademark: a machine-turned gauge bezel filled with factory instruments. As far as aftermarket parts, a trio of auxiliary Bosch gauges were discreetly added below the dash to help monitor the engine's vitals, and a newer stereo was fitted into the original slot but it looks very correct because it's a retro-style AM/FM/AUX unit complete with a Pontiac badge. GTO badges on the black floormats match the one above the glove box door, seatbelts fore and aft provide safety, and the black power convertible top is a newer unit that works flawlessly and matches the car far better than the original Ivory top. Out back, the spacious trunk is very nicely detailed with a reproduction mat and spare tire cover.

Although not the original, numbers-matching unit, the engine powering this droptop is indeed a correct YC-code 389 V8 with a 1965-66 date code. According to the PHS documents that accompany this convertible, it is a genuine Tri-Power convertible – making it the top-of-the-heap for collectors – so a correct Rochester 3x2 Tri-Power setup is exactly what went on the block during this Goat's restoration. Reportedly rebuilt and bored .040 over, it's been augmented with an Extreme Energy Ram Air III Comp Cam and running great today, with plenty of power up-and-down the throttle and a wonderful exhaust note emitting from the upgraded Flowmaster dual exhaust system below. It was installed right and detailed for show with all the correct bits during the frame-off restoration, but a few years of driving enjoyment are starting to show (only slightly), although I'd hardly call that a demerit on a top-end driver. If you want a perfect one wrapped in Saran wrap and protected behind velvet ropes, they're out there in museums and Jay Leno's house, but I bet you'll be afraid to drive one. Instead, this one fires up easily and drives beautifully, and with the Muncie M21 4-speed gearbox managing all that power while spinning a 10-bolt 3.36 posi-traction rear end, it's always a thrilling experience taking this beauty out for a spin. Power steering and power front disc brakes improve the Goat's road manners and it rides on a set of 225/75/14 Coker Classic redlines adorned with PMD hubcaps and center spinners.

Documented with restoration receipts/photos, PHS docs, and an owner's manual, it's obvious that super-clean 1st year GTO convertibles like this don't come along every day. Don't miss it, call today!
