on top of that the exhaust manifolds are 9778828 Should be 9779033 for the right manifold, 9779328 is the right manifold for 66, 67 and 68 and 9779032 correct casting for the 65 left manifold
There is no way to tell if this car (BF) is a true GTO without The PHS documents, only 65 GTOs built in the Kansas City and the Pontiac plant(s) will have a code on the data plate acc. line identifying the GTO option.

Doesn't look like it is the original engine. The car was built in Sept. 64 (very early build !) and the engine was built 5 months later.... It could be a warranty replacement but without dealer documentation, there really isn't any way to prove that.
