This 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible represents what most of you are seeking: a rare car that you can feel comfortable driving, as well as proud to show! Making this one even more appealing than most is the rare combination of a convertible and Muncie 4 speed transmission with a Hurst shifter surrounded by the sleek chrome ribbed 1965 GTO die cast console and massive chrome vacuum gauge! This car just SCREAMS 1960s muscle! This car was an older restoration that was completed in 2002. The color is a custom one from House of Kolor, and is called Metallic Kandy Burple. Depending on the light it moves from a deep metallic blue to a deep purple, giving the vehicle a sexy custom hot rod look without going overboard. Most of the chrome and stainless trim on this car has been replaced and is in good condition. There is some minor pitting on the tail panel trim, as well as the headlamp bezels (both of which are inexpensively replaceable).</p><p>The interior has 218-B Parchment buckets and rear bench, and surround. All the soft parts were restored while the body was apart, so there are new seat covers, reproduction door panels, and fresh black carpets over a solid floor. The car offers a full instrument cluster with an in dash tach, trimmed out in real wood grain and topped off with a real wood steering wheel (aftermarket). The dash also includes the original fully functional AM radio surrounded by the original chrome ribbed trim. The aftermarket white power top has a glass rear window, so no need to worry about fading and cracking plastic. The hydraulic pump, cylinders, and lines are all new, so the new owner will have many years to come with worry free operation. The trunk is nicely finished with correct spatter paint, a mat set, and a full-sized spare tire.</p><p>The original engine was not available when this vehicle was purchased. Under the hood youll find a healthy power plant consisting of a rebuilt 1966 GTO 389, bored .030 over, 9.5:1 compression pistons, a semi-aggressive cam, with an aftermarket 750 Edelbrock carburetor, topping a healthy dual plenum aluminum intake that sits on original rebuilt heads that have been ported, polished, and have hardened valve seats so there is no issue running on unleaded fuel! All this is surrounded by 1 5/8\
