US $16,730.00
Year:1965 Mileage:72000 Color: White /
 Black
Location:

Wellsville, Pennsylvania, United States

Wellsville, Pennsylvania, United States

ENGINE: The car came equiped with a 4 barrel carb. In 1996 I bought a completely refurbished tri-power set up, all
invoices are included. The original intake manifold is included in the sale. In 2013 I had the motor proffessionaly
rebuilt by a well known engine builder in my area named Doug Myers. That rebuild included an upgraded Crower Baja
Beast camshaft part # 60915 and the motor slightly bored.The engine produces an estimated 390 horsepower and "runs
perfect." The GTO has traveled only about 500 miles since its engine rebuild. The original exhaust manifolds and
exhaust pipes are included with the sale. Equiped with headers and a custom stainless-steel exhaust system.

DRIVELINE: In 1965, buyers who purchased a GTO with the optional automatic transmission got the two-speed
Powerglide, either shifted on the column or via the floor-mounted shifter in the optional console. The floor
shifter and console were ordered on this car, but after purchase, I opted to upgrade to the more versatile
three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 transmission. For all of you wondering were I found the 3 speed factory
appearance console shift indicator, the company is called "SHIFT WORKS". At the time of the transmission swap, the
ring and pinon set was upgraded, as well, from the GTO's 3.55:1 ratio to a snappier 3.90 gear set with the
limited-slip Safe-T-Track differential. The original Powerglide transmission is included with the sale.

SUSPENSION AND CHASSIS: The suspension was rebuilt in 1999 and was completely gone through at that time, including
springs, shocks, ball joints and bushings. The rear coil springs feature helper air bags to adjust ride height.
Power steering came with this GTO in 1965. The brakes are power assisted and the booster retains its cadmium plated
finish and single-reservoir master cylinder. The wheels are the optional competition-type steel wheels, with brake
cooling slots otherwise known as the Pontiac Rallye I, with the correct center caps and trim rings in place. Coker
Redline Radial tires were installed in 2010 and still have 11/32 of tread left.

EXTERIOR: The Cameo Ivory finish is in fresh and presentable condition, the car has spent no time on a trailer and
has been driven from time to time during ownership, just like they should be.The paint still shows well. When I
purchased the car In1995, it had some very minor surface rust on the hood scoop, and some minor pitting around the
rear wheel arches. I own a body shop and media blasted the rust away, filling any pits with lead ( no bondo, or
plastic as we call it in our industry) and polyester before repainting the rear quarter panels. All panels are
straight and true. I supplied a video link @ the bottom of the page. The only modifications to the body took place
in the hood scoop. I opened the nostrils in the hood scoop and added a factory Pontiac pan and foam gasket to meet
the underside of the hood, allowing fresh air to funnel directly to the carburetors.

INTERIOR: Inside, the black interior is in completely original condition with only a handful of minor
modifications. The black seat upholstery shows no cracks and has firm padding underneath. The interior door panels
are in fine shape,the grab handles and armrests are a bit worn. The loop pile carpet is in excellent condition, as
is the headliner. The only significant modification is to the original radio. The dash retains the original head
unit, but it's been modified to operate on the FM frequency and features an amplifier. Two coaxial speakers have
been installed in the rear package shelf.

NHTSA investigating 550k Pontiac G6 models, 320k Honda Odysseys

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 11:30:00 EST

According to two separate reports in The Detroit News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching investigations into 550,000 Pontiac G6 (pictured above) and 320,000 Honda Odyssey (pictured right) models. The G6 models are all from the 2005 to 2007 model years, while the Odyssey minivans are from the 2003 and 2004 model years. The two NHTSA probes are not related.
In the case of the G6, this is an upgrade to an original investigation that started in February after NHTSA received "hundreds of reports" that the brake lights on these cars may malfunction. According to The Detroit News, the lights may come on when the brake pedal is not depressed, and likewise, the brake lights may not illuminate when the pedal has been pushed. General Motors was able to provide NHTSA with a significant number of warranty claims, including 1,100 reports that could potentially relate to this problem, one of which indicates a vehicle crash.
For Honda, the NHTSA probe concerns airbags that may deploy unexpectedly. The government agency received six complaints from 2003-04 Odyssey owners saying that the front airbags suddenly went off without a crash. The Detroit News reports that three of the six owners sustained injuries from these incidents. Additionally, NHTSA has received 41 complaints from owners saying the vehicle's airbag warning light had illuminated.

Pontiac Firebird in latest Generation Gap scrap

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 16:45:00 EST

Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.
Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.
