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. And that means: when we tell you a car like this sinister, triple-black Tri-power/4-speed GTO is an authentic Detroit antihero, we have the paperwork to back it up. Scoring 616 out of 700 points on its way to achieving GTOAA Concours Silver honors, this stunning hardtop mixes a stout, numbers-matching drivetrain, with solid, mostly original sheetmetal and a highly accurate rotisserie restoration. And if you're a wise enthusiast who's looking for an impressive classic that'll roll straight out of the showroom and right on to the show field, it's your chance to grab a tiger by the tail!
Fresh out of a no-holds-barred reboot that wrapped up in May of 2014, this super cool A-Body is a perfect blend of good craftsmanship and great attention to detail. Originally sold in Westfield, Massachusetts, the car was discovered by its current owner, a '64 GTO purist, in Waycross, Georgia. After roughly 25 years of enjoyment, that owner initiated a 2-year, rotisserie restoration that fitted the coupe with a fresh pair of quarters and meticulously straightened its profile to better-than-new condition. Once that comprehensive metalwork transitioned from the garage bay to the paint booth, classic '60s panels were re-sprayed in correct Starlight Black PPG. When that paint dried, a correct vinyl roof capped a hearty layer of clear, which had been buffed to a clean, flat shine. And today, officially unleashed as the epitome of old school American style, this goat is one seriously cool head turner that grabs trophies just as easily as it drops jaws.
Pop the car's sculpted hood and the first thing you'll notice is a 389 cubic inch Pontiac V8 that's been completely rebuilt and wrapped in attractive Turquoise skin. Less obvious, of course, is that stalwart mill's correct 9773155 casting number, April (D) 2nd (2), 1964 (4) casting date and 348 horsepower, manual transmission-exclusive “76X” assembly stamp. At the top of the block, a correct Rochester Tri-power setup bridges the gap between polished air cleaners, bright stainless fluid lines and a correct, cast iron intake. That intake rides between correct heads, which hang hardened valve seats and attractive valve covers over a flat-tappet cam and GM NOS pistons. A familiar points distributor jolts spark through pliable plug wires. Cooling is provided by a heavy duty Harrison radiator, which sends water around a correct fan via GM-branded hoses and traditional tower clamps. Charge comes courtesy of a rebuilt GM alternator and reproduction Delco battery. Charred dinosaurs float through a nice pair of restored exhaust manifolds. And aesthetically, the impressive engine is fully detailed, from its correct tags and vivid decals all the way to its yellow carb spring and appropriate grease marks.
Logging few miles since their thorough restoration, this goat's carefully repaired floors and super clean frame are completely free of significant issues and major defects. The stout 389 sends power to a stalwart Muncie transmission, which hangs a correct 3851325 casting number in front of a Muncie (P) assembled on February (02) 26th (26), 1964 build stamp. That proven gearbox spins a tough GM 10-bolt, which twists a posi-trac differential around big, 3.90 gears. At the sides of that rock-solid drivetrain, aluminized, true-dual exhaust pipes connect the aforementioned manifolds with tough turbo mufflers. At the sides of that booming soundtrack, a rebuilt and tagged suspension is complete with factory power steering and power drum brakes. Muscle meets the pavement through 14-inch steelies, which spin 205/75 BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial redlines around deluxe wheel covers. And absolutely everything, from this Poncho's fresh stainless fuel tank to its clean Turquoise oil pan, is fully sorted and ready to be scored!
Open this coupe's doors and you'll find a correct GM code 214 Black interior that's simple yet sporty. Front and center, firm bucket and bench seats wrap bright chrome trim around cool, pleated hides. The engine's vitals are displayed by a rebuilt gauge cluster, which integrates an optional tachometer into a correctly padded dash that's complete with engine-turned trim and a correct Delco radio. On the floors, like-new carpet anchors a simple shifter and stylish, chrome-trimmed console between thick, Pontiac-themed floor mats and classy, Fisher-themed sills. At the sides of the car, fresh door panels hang new chrome handles under straight stainless trim and monochromatic Pontiac insignias. In front of the driver, a Custom Sport Steering Wheel spins a faux wood rim around a red, Pontiac-branded horn button. And behind the passengers, a clean trunk sandwiches a correct jack and full-size spare tire between a standard mat and requisite decklid decal.

What Customers Are Saying
Some large branded car dealers could learn a lot from you guys on how to treat a customer and close the deal without the painful game that follows when you are just trying to buy a vehicle. Finally, a special thanks to you for priority you placed on closing this deal in record time. also a thanks out to Greg Smith for taking the lead on getting the truck to my location. he also is very good a making it happen versus just talking about what could happen.
Most of my car friends know about RK Motors and the high level of vehicles you offer at much less than anyone could build the same vehicle. going forward I will promote that the people & process are at the same level as the vehicles that RK Motors offers.
