1964 Pontiac GTO Coupe
1964 Pontiac GTO Coupe
The great thing about vintage Pontiacs, well, besides the fact that they are vintage Pontiacs, is the fact that Pontiac Historic Services can confirm the provenance of almost every one of them. No other mass-market brand, aside from maybe Ford and their beloved Mustang, maintained such detailed factory records.
For consignment, in our halls of the malls is the PHS verified 79J coded engine, all fully restored in 2002 example of the 1964 GTO. Pretty much the only thing that changed in this restoration was the paint color and now comes with vintage Cragar SS wheels. This car comes with its PHS documentation. We could best describe this example as an upper end driver but can win shows just as easily as it gets you down the road. So don't hesitate to get in here and grab this goat by its horns.
From Feb 7, 1964 the day it dropped off the line, this straight steel has been fully attended to and is now dressed in high gloss PPG red base coat, and clear coat. Throughout, show quality chrome is attached, and since it's a 1964 pre-stacked headlight design are on the front. It definitely has the ubiquitous beak splitting the grille GTO badge and show quality bumper below. The hood has faux dual stainless openings, which are divided by an extension of the break which widens and dies as it races towards the windshield. A chromed rear-view mirror hangs from the mid upper front quarter, and all polished stainless steel trims the wheel wells and rockers. This shiny trimming can also be seen framing the soft ray tinted glass. Gaps are perfectly aligned, and in lieu of any side trimming the bodywork has a slight fold inward at the wheel well line, giving the car a more shapely look. The rear glass gently descends into the trunk deck which is definitely long and lean, and this rolls downward with a horizontal banded bar that has tailgating on either end. The shiny rear bumper has the optioned backup lights and just below dual exhausts are showing. One each corner resides a vintage chrome Cragar wheel wrapped in Sigma Extreme TR tires which show good tread.
A fully restored interior for this GTO and this includes white padded and paneled door coverings inside. Shiny door handles and cranks are on as well as a chrome rimmed armrest and Pontiac arrowhead badge on the doors upper. Pristine white wide low back buckets float in a perfect sea of black carpeting and a long bench is stretching across the back, also in perfect white vinyl. The dash uses the black and white motif as well with a padded black top and white metal dash lower. In the middle is a machined swirl pattern aluminum plate which has a lineup of 4 circular gauges and the temp sliders. Just below this is a horizontal ribbed back background and 3D chromed ribbed panel that houses knobs and the ignition along with the radio. Just below the dash are dual aftermarket gauges just to keep on top of all vitals. A beautiful black rimmed center horn in rectangular form wheel with a mid century modern chromed shift lever, (very 60's and very cool). Above all this is a white headliner which could not be any cleaner or tighter.
The engine is so bright you're gonna need shades! In a perfectly restored bay sits the original sky blue painted block in its 389ci V8 form. In addition to the beautiful blue there are some chromed valve coverings and a chrome air cleaner covering. It's a 79J code engine which means it is an authentic 1964 389ci V8, 4bbl 325hp with a 2-speed automatic Powerglide transmission. On the back is a 10-bolt 3.23 rear axle. Just the way it rolled off the assembly line.
As nice as the topside with beautifully painted red floor pans, fenders and rockers. The frame and suspension are black and a dual shiny Flowmaster exhaust makes its way past independent coil spring suspension and power drum brakes up front, and 4 link with coil springs and power drums for the back. When you buy this car, you'll need a mirror to show off the undercarriage to all the ooooohers and aaahhhhers!
An excellent driving experience was had by me and my cohort and the test track proved to be no match for this machine. Nice acceleration, a smooth cruiser, bias free panic stopping and tight steering. The horn and wipers were not functioning at the time of our drive.
Restored several years ago and sadly the restorer passed away and the car sat for a while until our consignor came along and plucked it from its capsule in 2020. And now for the taking, just reach out and grab this tiger by its tail!
