My Grandmother purchased this 1965 GTO, 389 V8, in 1967 for my mother. I will be adding interior, exterior photos, as well as all of the parts that are not currently on the vehicle. In addition I will add all of the items that have been rebuilt or replaced. The Engine is original, accept the air filter, and possibly the carburetor. Both the transmission, and Engine have been completely rebuilt and have less than 500 miles on both. The interior has been mostly removed for restoration, but I have everything to restore it besides the carpet, which is easy to acquire, and rear seat springs which can be made or purchased. The GTO has all glass besides the rear window, and the front window has a crack. There is the normal nicks, scratches, etc on the paint. There is a crack in the paint by the rear drivers window which I will take a picture of tomorrow. I will do my best to answer all questions the best I can. I highly recommend the vehicle be inspected prior to bidding if possible, or ask for additional pictures. The original radio has been replaced with a 8 track player. I am not much of a car person, I appreciate them, but I have limited knowledge. I believe the rear spring needs to be replaced. This car was not cleaned, washed, or buffed, it was simply driven out of the garage and I took photos. Besides being driven once a week by me to maintain the vehicle, this car has been in a garage for 15 years as my mother no longer drives it. Vehicle has power steering. Wiring has not all been reattached as I anticipate some wiring will be replaced. With the interior put in, and a new paint job, the value of this vehicle will rise significantly. When the vehicle was last painted, it was taken down to the metal, so a new paint job should not be much of an issue. As, after the interior is repainted I would assume it will be repainted.This GTO is located in Santa Fe, NM. Inspections are encouraged deposits are non refundable and the car is sold as is. I will help with shipping and loading. E-mail with any questions
