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.

Say what you will about The Monkees, but the guys in the band had great taste in automobiles. Take the Monkeemobile, for example. Built off a 1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible, the custom featured genuinely interesting bodywork and some wild engine bolt-ons. If you're a fan of 1960s pop and yearn to relive the genre's glory days, eBay Motors may have what you need. A recreation of the 1967 Monkeemobile has showed up for auction. This particular replica was built by Dakota County Customs using an four-speed GTO, just like the original.

Built for the band's 45th anniversary and the final Monkees tour last year, this Monkeemobile is faithful down to every last detail. Unfortunately, the trumpet exhaust poking out of the front fender wells and the massive gold-flake blower are for show only. Seems fitting.
If you like what you see, this machine is up for bid in Richfield, Minnesota with two days left on the auctions. So far, bidding as whipped up to $60,000 with the reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look.
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling 778,562 compact cars after six people were killed in accidents, partially due to the airbags' failure to deploy. An issue with the ignition switch is causing the airbag issues, as well as causing the engine and other components to shut off without warning. The recall covers the 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5. (Note that the Cobalt pictured above is a 2009 model.)

According to a report from Automotive News, a number of factors can cause the ignition to switch out of the run position, including weights on the key ring, rough or bumpy roads or other "jarring" events. Any of these situations could lead to some vehicle components not functioning properly.
There have been five fatal front-impact crashes that took the lives of six people, although as a GM spokesman noted, all five of the crashes happened off road and at high speed. In each of these cases, though, the lack of airbags wasn't the only lethal factor - alcohol and failure to wear a seat belt also played a role. Outside of the fatal accidents, there have been 17 other crashes where airbags didn't deploy. It's unclear if any of these crashes were caused by the engine shutting off.
According to two separate reports in The Detroit News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching investigations into 550,000 Pontiac G6 (pictured above) and 320,000 Honda Odyssey (pictured right) models. The G6 models are all from the 2005 to 2007 model years, while the Odyssey minivans are from the 2003 and 2004 model years. The two NHTSA probes are not related.
In the case of the G6, this is an upgrade to an original investigation that started in February after NHTSA received "hundreds of reports" that the brake lights on these cars may malfunction. According to The Detroit News, the lights may come on when the brake pedal is not depressed, and likewise, the brake lights may not illuminate when the pedal has been pushed. General Motors was able to provide NHTSA with a significant number of warranty claims, including 1,100 reports that could potentially relate to this problem, one of which indicates a vehicle crash.
For Honda, the NHTSA probe concerns airbags that may deploy unexpectedly. The government agency received six complaints from 2003-04 Odyssey owners saying that the front airbags suddenly went off without a crash. The Detroit News reports that three of the six owners sustained injuries from these incidents. Additionally, NHTSA has received 41 complaints from owners saying the vehicle's airbag warning light had illuminated.
