Pristine example of original muscle car priced at under $100k.
Often accused of starting the muscle car craze of the Sixties and Seventies, the Pontiac GTO is one of the finest Pontiacs ever built. Its age means that decent examples are few and far between, so finding this stunning restomod with RK Motors is a little bit special. The 1965 Pontiac GTO Convertible, finished in Nitghtwatch Blue with glossy red pinstripes, is priced at $99,900. Given other restomods we’ve come across recently, that’s a bit of a bargain.
High detailed metalwork combines with polished stainless-steel side mirrors, a broad chrome bumper, a satin-finish arrowhead, and stainless-trimmed grilles housing the ‘GTO’ emblem. Under the GTO-exclusive hood scoop lurks a ballistic Tri-Power 389 6.4-liter V8 that sends 360 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque via a Muncie 4-speed manual to the rear axle. Exhaust gases are funneled through a pair of long tubed headers and out the MagnaFlow mufflers and polished side-splitter tips. 18-inch Coys wheels house “The Right Stuff” disc brakes, and a newly restored suspension features beefy sway bars and lowering springs.
Inside, a Blue interior boasts firm leather seats with bright red trim, a reconditioned gauge cluster, a chrome Hurst shifter, a leather-wrapped polished steering wheel, a modern Alpine audio system, while the custom upholstered trunk houses a small chrome fire extinguisher. Perfect examples of original muscle cars don’t come around every day. This award-winning example is not to be missed.
