1965 Pontiac Gto Barn Find 3 2 Barrel Carburetors on 2040cars
Jacksonville, Florida, United States
1965 Pontiac GTO. This car is a true Barn Find. I took a couple of pictures of it in the barn and coming out. This appears to be a pretty rare GTO. It has Air Conditioning, Tilt Wheel, Full Gauges and 3 2 Barrel Carburetors. The Engine code is YJ which indicates that this is a 1965 421 C.I.D. with 3x2 Carburetors. The car was being restored, years ago. The owner ran into some problems and the car was stored away in a barn for years. It has now been pulled out of the barn and is up for sale. The car appears to be pretty complete. I cannot guarantee that everything is present, but it looks complete. The engine was rebuilt, before the car was put in the barn. I have no idea of it's condition now. It may run, if installation is completed. The body is very solid. I only found one very small rust spot on the whole car. It is on the passenger's side quarter panel, near the bottom. I do not know the true mileage on the car. The Odometer was set back to zero, so the mileage is incorrect. The interior is in the car and looks good. The seats are nice and solid looking. The door panels are nice, but may be replacements from Year One. The Steering Wheel has all of the original wood missing. I do not know how this could have happened. There is no Headliner. The Carpet looks good and is probably newer replacement. I am posting good pictures and will try to answer any questions through email. I am listing this car with a low start price and no reserve. It will sell to the highest bidder. I may be able to assist with delivery, for a fee, within a few hundred miles of Jacksonville, Florida.

For the 1939 World's Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors' Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the 'invisible' Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas.

The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000. Not bad appreciation for a domestic oddity that cost $25,000 to build when new. You can check out the high-res gallery of its innards, including copper and chrome metalwork and white moldings and wheels, and get the exhaustive details on it after the jump.
Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.

In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.

General Motors has made a science out of sharing platforms. So when the company's Kappa platform was introduced for a new rear-drive roadster to be distributed across three different motor divisions, you'd have figured the program was pretty safe, right? Unfortunately for the workers at the Wilmington Assembly Plant which manufactured the Kappa roadsters, those three divisions were Pontiac, Saturn and Opel - three units which the General has either sold or shut down. Which is a shame, because a perfectly good rear-drive roadster platform is a heck of a thing to waste.
In one of the strangest rumors we've heard recently, however, our compatriots over at Jalopnik report that the DeLorean Motor Company (yes, that DeLorean Motor Company) is considering buying the plant and the platform from GM and putting it back into production as a new DMC.
