First Year American Muscle Car Legend: the 1964 Pontac GTO

The Gran Turismo Omologato (GTO) has a charming story behind its development, in which John DeLorean dropped a 389 cubic inch engine in a Pontiac Tempest as an experiment – just to see how it worked. According to the legend, upper management thought they would never sell so much as 500 GTOs and didn’t like that the GTO exceeded ten pounds of body weight for each cubic inch of engine displacement, but eager customers had ordered over 5,000 of these mid-sized muscle cars.

Looking to Buy a 1964 Pontiac GTO?

Can you imagine yourself sliding behind the wheel of this bold, red performance machine, turning the key and feeling the power surge and the heady growl of the engine waiting to take you anywhere you want to go., then feeling the surge of power as you shift her into gear and hit the gas?

The Vermillion red GTO featured above started life an entirely different color; it was Gulfstream Aqua with a dark aqua interior, and the seller mentions having the build sheet from Pontiac Historic Services.

This GTO has had three owners, and as a ten-year project, this performance machine was completely restored by the second owner who kept the original engine and 4-speed transmission intact while changing some other details to make this ride even sweeter than it already was.

Some comfort features were added to the interior during the restoration process, such as adding sound-deadening Dynamat to the flooring and panels and installing a custom sound system that includes a CD player installed in the trunk.

Thanks for taking the time to read about this beautiful ’64 GTO, and be sure to check out this classic Goat on eBay by clicking on the image above if you would like to see the rest of the details on it.
