1964 Pontiac GTO Unrestored Tripower
True Survivor Time Capsule
8000 Orignal Miles
As an avid car collector, I, along with many others in the hobby, feel that no muscle car collection is complete
without at least one example of the 1964 GTO which is considered to be the first muscle car built.
In November of 2010, I received a phone call from noted Pontiac historian, Jim Mattison. Jim was well aware of my
passion for unrestored cars and had just been contacted by the family of a gentleman who had ordered a new Pontiac,
delivered May 19, 1964, from Community Motors, in Chicago. The family was interested in selling and wanted it to go
to a good home where it would be well cared for. Jim had described the car to me as an 8,000 mile unrestored and
original time capsule 1964 Tri-power GTO. I immediately called the guys at Tri-power Automotive, in
Libertyville, Illinois, Pontiac specialists, and asked them to go take a look at the car for me.
With their first look at the car, their impression was that the car had been restored or at the very least
re-painted. They first opened up the trunk and saw a reproduction trunk mat. While they felt that this was evidence
of a restoration, they lifted the mat to find, to their amazement, that the reproduction was there to protect the
beautiful, original, trunk mat that lay beneath it. They then took out the spare tire to find that it was the
original spare from 1964 and had never been on the ground.
Now, they began to really look at the car even more closely and soon realized that this truly was the “time
capsule” they had come to see. The paint is 100% original and in nearly the same condition as when it rolled off
the line in 1964. The interior is 100% original and still retains that “new car smell.”The complete drive
train is born with #'S MATCHING 100% ORIGINAL!!!!
This would undoubtedly have to be one of the highest optioned 1964 GTO's ever built.
Per the PHS, the 20+ options include:
Push Button Radio
Verba-Phonic Speaker
Console
Wood-grain Style Custom Sports Steering Wheel
Windshield Washer and Dual Wiper Speed
Instrument Panel Pad
Tachometer
Optional Tri-Power 389 4-speed
H. D. Radiator
Optional and very rare breakerless transistor ignition
Ride & Handling Package
Metallic Brakes
Saf-T Track Differential
M21 Close Ratio with 3.90 Axle
I have owned over 50 unrestored cars over the years and this is by far the most original untouched car that I have
ever owned or even seen. Steve Shauger’s team of "Vintage Judges" confirmed my thoughts, when this car was
awarded 2724.49 points out of the possible 2784 points possible, in November of 2013 at the MCACN event, and given
their highest “Award of Legend.”
