The carpet and sill plates have been replace. Seat belts front and back.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: First impression is wow! To see a tri power and air conditioning sitting next to each other is not common, plus it has power steering and power brakes. Everything is proper and painted up nicely. The 389 is date coded correct for this car. It has been completely rebuilt, has spec sheet. Bored 30 over, upgraded Comp cam and roller rockers. It was Dyno tested at 349 hp. You will hear and feel when all 3 carbs open!Has correct chrome air cleaners and valve covers. The air conditioning system was restored, upgraded to r134a freon.

Has hood insulation new hinges. The windshield squirters are even hooked up.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Looks to be all clean original metal. I don't see any patches or repairs. Looks like the quarter panels are original, there's no splices. Has a new liner, spare tire cover and weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Front end was completely rebuilt. Has disc brake conversion in front. Bottom of the motor is clean, has high torque starter. The original 4-speed was upgraded to a Tremec 5-speed. New McLeod clutch. Has 3.23 posi rear. Custom Pypes exhaust with x-pipe and optional splitter tips. New brake and fuel lines, e-brake assembly, gas shocks, u-joints. The floors look super clean, no patches or repairs that I could find. Chassis is also really clean metal, no pitted. Floors were prepped and painted satin finish, chassis is a glossier finish. Very clean underneath.
A 65 GTO is one of my favorites. Tri-power is a must because everyone will ask if it has a tri-power under the hood. To find this combination of features and colors is unbelievable. A manual trans with a/c is hard to find in any muscle car. The upgraded trans is nice, 5th gear makes highway cruising comfortable. You won't find another one like this!
