Joe's 65 Goat

My 65 GTO, more pics at It has a 389 w/ 400 heads, 650 Edelbrock Carb, Dual Plane Edelbrock Intake, High Flow Edelbrock Fuel Pump, Comp Cam Roller Rockers & Lifters, Mild Cam, Taylor HEI Ignition, Hays Clutch, Flywheel & Pressure Plate, M-21 Muncie 4 Speed, 3:55 gears, Crager S/S Mags, Silvertown Red Lines, Doug's Ceramic Coated Headers, 2 1/2" Stainless Exhaust, Flowmaster 50 Series Mufflers, PFDB, Tubular Upper & Lower Control Arms, Functional Scoop w/Spectre Induction, Afco Aluminum Crossflow Radiator.

Getting completely redone this winter.

The room built for housing the GTO inside a 30 X 40 garage.

Getting closer to being done, about 4 or 5 more days.

My other car, 1958 Rambler 6 Deluxe, it's for sale though, I want to concentrate on the GTO.

18,000+ documented miles, all original unrestored. Always garaged.

Finally beginning to reassemble it!!

Getting closer all the time.

For the car shows.

This has to go so I have a new wiring harness to install.

The wiring is just a little simpler now.

Dash is back in and everything is working, whew!!!

New gauges

New motor.


More Cars of the 1960s
More Pontiac Coverage

190 car nuts gave this a thumbs-up. Do you? Thumbs-up

I checked out you website, and it's awesome. The slide show is sweet, man to have all the old cars we used to have back again....brought back some memories. Sweet 55 chev, and the 68 Camaro SS 396...I used to have one I bought it in 1980, but gave it to my son last summer. I wanted him to know what real cars are like. He drives a "HONDA" hehe...well now he has a true muscle car. Did you say you still have the 64 that is awesome!!! I restored a 70 GTO Ram Air last year, I'll post some pics soon. Rock on!!!

I'm sorry to say that I don't have any of the old cars. Like most others I thought they would always be here. I traded the GTO for the Camaro and traded the Camaro for a 72 Charger. But I'm back in the saddle again with this GTO and value it a little more than I did when I was young.

OUCH...I need sunglasses to look at that! I wish I had the talents and ability to do a complete resto myself. I can do some but my level is far from what this car took.......great job.

Thank you very much Sir. I did have the paint done by someone that knew what he was doing. The rest is just being stubborn and keep doing it until I was satisfied, lol. Thanks for the complments.

Holy cow! What an incredible amount of work and awesome detail. Personally I think the '65 is the coolest body style for the Goats but you have even kicked that up several notches. Very cool.

Thank you. As we all know it's a labor of love. If it wasn't so much fun we wouldn't do it.
