1964 GTO Options

My '64 has four options (that I know of so far) a/c, tinted glass, automatic trans, and back up lights. Sometimes I daydream about installing EVRYY factory option. What I'd like to do in this post is talk about some factory options, maybe see pictures, stories, or something rare. Anyone know or have some factory options for the 64-65 year?
We all know about Tri-Power but what else?

I don't have one but I've seen them with P/S, P/B drums, power windows, power seat, AM radio, bucket seats were std but consoles were optional. My older cousin down in Atlanta was married to a dude who bought one of the first in fall of '63. It had the 4bbl, 4 speed, console, P/S. outside mirror, and Day2 glasspacs (burgundy with black interior). He took it into the dealer for a minor thing and wish I had thought to grab sales material/brochures.....ARRRGH--Stupid. Too busy watching the GTO.

Hopefully others here will do much better than me

Have your Goat Pontiac Historical Society documented. They have a website with the details needed. That will verify that you have a real GTO. Plus, when I had my 64 documented, about eight months ago, they included a list of options that were available in 64 for ALL Pontiacs which totaled 69 options. Obviously some wouldn’t apply to the GTO, for example the AM/FM radio was not a GTO option, but also included is the dealer order sheet which shows the option codes specific to the GTO and how your car was originally optioned. This way you can see what was available and add to your car as you see fit.

For me the item least seen (RARE) on a 1964 Tempest Convertible with the GTO option is/was the TONNEAU COVER.
In 35+ years around Pontiac's I've only seen one in person and of course never took pictures.
It was a sky/baby blue car overall a very mundane car overall but IMO the Tonneau made it interesting.
Wan't a fan of all the snaps needed for this cover. They ran along the tops of the doors and along the top of the dash.
I would think that is what deterred a lot of buyers/sales.

I have a '65 GTO that has a console-mounted vacuum gauge as a dealer-installed accessory (available for '64-'67 I'm told). Part number for 1964 - 984326; for 1965 - 984547; 984699 for 1966; and finally 984814 for 1967. The suggested retail price in 1967 was $29.50 plus installation. See https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hm...e/3738221.html for more info

For 1965 your vac gauge was a 29.95 option from dealer. (FYI if you wanted the figure)

64 options

My 64 was built with 4barrel,3sp with console.Also included was pwr brakes,pwr steering,dash pad and remote mirror.Factory Ac & Clock,and strange control panel exclusive to the 64 as it has 3 Slides instead of just 2 on all other years.Listed was ebrake light and I found evidence of a ashtray light,was it a option? Maybe not.Also pwr windows and pwr antenna and black vinyl top.Posi 3.08 and what appears to be boxed rear lower control arms with sway bar. Unfortunately my car had has a ruff life and I bought it in need of tryin to bring back to life,which i'll do as a restomod. Original engine/trans gone and theres a mid 70's 400WA TA motor with a 4sp Muncie. I'll be getting rid of the motor as I have a fresh 67 400 i'll use.I'll also be getting rid of the other items except the pwr windows.I do need to find a replacement pwr reg for LH QTR window as sometime in it's life a motor must went bad,so a manuel re was installed in it's place. This is my 3rd 64 GTO I've owned and is needing more than any of the less than $200 dollar specials I found in my younger years. My how things have changed!
