Excellent Used to love those GTO's. A Bud also had a Plymouth RoadRunner with the hot Hemi engine. That buggar would fly.

I had a '65 hard top. Wish I still did. Mine wasn't a Tri-Power, but I did have a rebuilt Muncie M-21, 4 speed tranny though.

Your going to love this, I had 3 buddies that all had GTO's and they always road my butt about what they could do in theirs that I couldn't do in mine. You get my drift?

I had a friend that lived across the street from me that had a 1966 GTO 389, 3 duce with a 4 speed tranny. We used to cruise all over town in that car and listen to the radio. To this day there are certain songs from the 60s that just bring back some good memories.
About a year after he sold the 66 GTO, his dad bought 67 GTO convertable with an automatic. It just wasn't the same until we soaped a fountain in front of the Water Co. and out ran the po poBandito

I have a friend in the country between Granbury and Glen Rose who has a 65 Convertible GTO!  Iris Mist color....I believe is the name.  White interior, 4 speed, White top.....about 98% gorgeous.

Well, it was the old days.  Besides, put the top down or roll down the windows.  Farmington is about 5000 feet elevation.  I used to live there.

Dad had a '65 GTO convertible before he went on va-ca to scenic SE Asia. His was blue charcoal with white top/interior. She was a beauty. His had a 3 speed manual and a 4 barrel Carter.

My very first car was a 68 Tempest, 350 powerglide looked like a 68 goat....Da Judge.
This is very close to mine but I had Cragar SS.
