1965 Pontiac Gto Barn Find 3 2 Barrel Carburetors on 2040-cars
Jacksonville, Florida, United States
1965 Pontiac GTO. This car is a true Barn Find. I took a couple of pictures of it in the barn and coming out. This appears to be a pretty rare GTO. It has Air Conditioning, Tilt Wheel, Full Gauges and 3 2 Barrel Carburetors. The Engine code is YJ which indicates that this is a 1965 421 C.I.D. with 3x2 Carburetors. The car was being restored, years ago. The owner ran into some problems and the car was stored away in a barn for years. It has now been pulled out of the barn and is up for sale. The car appears to be pretty complete. I cannot guarantee that everything is present, but it looks complete. The engine was rebuilt, before the car was put in the barn. I have no idea of it's condition now. It may run, if installation is completed. The body is very solid. I only found one very small rust spot on the whole car. It is on the passenger's side quarter panel, near the bottom. I do not know the true mileage on the car. The Odometer was set back to zero, so the mileage is incorrect. The interior is in the car and looks good. The seats are nice and solid looking. The door panels are nice, but may be replacements from Year One. The Steering Wheel has all of the original wood missing. I do not know how this could have happened. There is no Headliner. The Carpet looks good and is probably newer replacement. I am posting good pictures and will try to answer any questions through email. I am listing this car with a low start price and no reserve. It will sell to the highest bidder. I may be able to assist with delivery, for a fee, within a few hundred miles of Jacksonville, Florida.

General Motors has announced that it will be recalling 778,562 compact cars after six people were killed in accidents, partially due to the airbags' failure to deploy. An issue with the ignition switch is causing the airbag issues, as well as causing the engine and other components to shut off without warning. The recall covers the 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5. (Note that the Cobalt pictured above is a 2009 model.)

According to a report from Automotive News, a number of factors can cause the ignition to switch out of the run position, including weights on the key ring, rough or bumpy roads or other "jarring" events. Any of these situations could lead to some vehicle components not functioning properly.
There have been five fatal front-impact crashes that took the lives of six people, although as a GM spokesman noted, all five of the crashes happened off road and at high speed. In each of these cases, though, the lack of airbags wasn't the only lethal factor - alcohol and failure to wear a seat belt also played a role. Outside of the fatal accidents, there have been 17 other crashes where airbags didn't deploy. It's unclear if any of these crashes were caused by the engine shutting off.
Every few a decades, the folks running General Motors lose their minds briefly try to market a car that public doesn't see coming and often aren't ready for. In the '60s there was the rear-engine, air-cooled Chevrolet Corvair, then the mid-engine Pontiac Fiero in the '80s and the completely bizarre Chevy SSR in the 2000s. What all of these had in common was that they bucked the trend for American models of their era, for better or worse. The latest episode of Generation Gap tasked the hosts with finding two cult classic vehicles to choose between; they came come up with two of these quirky products from The General.

On the classic side, there's a 1967 Chevy Corvair Monza convertible. Being from later in the production run, it wears slightly more aerodynamic styling than the earlier, boxier examples. Hanging out back is an air-cooled, 2.7-liter flat-six pumping out a robust 95 horsepower. In the other corner is the somewhat more modern 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE with a mid-mounted, 2.5-liter "Iron Duke" four-cylinder, an engine nearly ubiquitous in GM cars of the '80s.
Judging by when they were new, the Corvair was far more successful than the Fiero with over 1.8 million sold. Of course, Ralph Nader's book Unsafe at Any Speed kind of poisoned the well, even if the poor safety reputation wasn't entirely deserved. The Fiero on the other hand only lasted for a few model years before shuffling off, but it eventually got its own performance boost with the V6 version and rather attractive GT models. Check them both out in the video and tell us in Comments which you want in your garage.

General Motors has made a science out of sharing platforms. So when the company's Kappa platform was introduced for a new rear-drive roadster to be distributed across three different motor divisions, you'd have figured the program was pretty safe, right? Unfortunately for the workers at the Wilmington Assembly Plant which manufactured the Kappa roadsters, those three divisions were Pontiac, Saturn and Opel - three units which the General has either sold or shut down. Which is a shame, because a perfectly good rear-drive roadster platform is a heck of a thing to waste.
In one of the strangest rumors we've heard recently, however, our compatriots over at Jalopnik report that the DeLorean Motor Company (yes, that DeLorean Motor Company) is considering buying the plant and the platform from GM and putting it back into production as a new DMC.
