If starring as an attraction in Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville, TN, serves as an endorsement for a vintage machine from that classic era, then this 1965 Pontiac GTO comes highly recommended.

But that’s not the end of this fantastic GTO’s credentials. It has twice won the GTO Association of America’s Concours Award and was chosen as Popular Favorite GTO at the 2015 GTOAA Nationals in Columbus, IN. A YR-code car denoting its 389/360 horsepower V8 and automatic transmission, it is a fascinating example that was restored in frame-off fashion and freshened in both 2009 and 2013.
