1965 Pontiac GTO with 389 Tri-Power
Used 1965 Pontiac GTO 22,736 miles, Red
Long Beach, CA
The 389-cu.in. V-8 engine in this GTO is based on a replacement block, the carÃ¢s original cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds, and a correct 1965 Tri-Power induction system (the original engine had a four-barrel carburetor). The engine reportedly has approximately 3,000 miles on a rebuild that included new pistons, camshaft, lifters, timing chain, oil pump and more. Also, the heads were reportedly rebuilt with new guides, valves, valve springs and retainers. The block was also align-honed and the cylinder overbored 0.030-inch. the engine starts and idles well, particularly with regular use. The choke is said to be operational and the choke heat pipes are apparently in good condition, but the heat riser has been disabled in the exhaust manifold. The transmission is reportedly a correct 1965 Muncie four-speed that has been rebuilt. The shifter was also refurbished with new bushings and clips. it shifts smoothly and quietly, with a recently replaced clutch, channeling the 389Ã¢s torque to the original YF-code 3.23:1-ratio Safe-T-Track rear axle, which is said to have new axle bearings and seals. There are no reported leaks with the transmission or axle.
