Default 1965 OEM Sound System

Prehistoric compared to today’s high-tech systems.

#391 - Power Antenna
#392 - Radio - Push Button
#401 - Speaker - Rear Seat

#393, which encompasses the 391 and 392 is shown on the “Car Billing History Card”.

These rear Power Antennas are pretty scarce, as most cars were ordered with the manual antenna mounted on the front fender.

The paper label on the antenna body reads,
TENNA MFG.
9770160
AUG 27 ‘64

Check out the trunk spatter paint.

Antenna works perfect and extends out to a whopping 54 inches.

Both factory Delco speakers work great and show their part number and date codes inked on the magnets.

The stapled together rear speaker enclosure is nice.

Cool stuff from 56 years ago.

Chris.

Default 1965 GTO "Unrestored Survivor"

WOW! I am so in love with this '65 GTO, and I am a die hard Chevy guy! Just simply phenominal! Too bad it is on the other side of the country for me to see it in person. Congrats and good luck with it! Don.

Default Mass production flaws

Factory overspray.

On an Unrestored Survivor automobile paint overspray is common and unique from car to car.

The GTO in this thread received some sloppiness on the valve covers, especially the LH cover.

I’m not sure what type of protective cover they set on top of the chrome valve covers when they spray the engine color, but this example is the worst I’ve ever seen.

Check out the starter wire clip, on and off the cover.

Default Engine Bay Details

“RADIATOR CAP”
The OEM Big Ear AC radiator cap.

1964 and early 1965 GTO shared the same cap in regard to the style of the 15# and AC font.
The rivet was the recess (hollow) style.


“RADIATOR TOP TANK”
This radiator has never been rebuilt and still shows the White Ink Stamp (156) next to the radiator hose inlet.

The “H” stamp in top tank designates August.

Note, 1966 was the first year for the metal plate with the two letter code which clipped to the edge of tank.


“FAN GUARD”
The first usage of a Fan Guard on a GTO was 1965.

The first 4 months (Aug. ~ Nov.) of production used a metal guard which had the back two rounded corners stamped flat.

It seems this was an issue because of the closeness of the top radiator hose. That rounded corner on the guard was like a knife that could possibly cut into the hose.

A change in the stamping of this guard happened sometime in the Nov. 64 build of 65’s.

That right side rear of guard now had a turn down to alleviate that sharp edge.
This revised guard continued through ‘66 and ‘67 even though the top radiator hose was now on the other side, but with much more clearance and not needing another new stamping.

A couple of spare fan guards show the difference.

Default 1965 Aluminum Fuel Line

A follow up to post #28 in regard to the first design aluminum fuel line to carb.

This particular ‘65 GTO is a great reference showing several components used at all four factory’s in the early stages of the ‘65 build.

This first design had (4 bends) and was installed for about the first 4 months Aug. through Nov. of the ‘65 build.

The second design had (5 bends) and was installed for about 8 months from Dec. through July of the ‘65 build.
1966 4BBL. used a different line to the carburetor, mostly rubber hose.

I show both designs below.
