Why The Pontiac Tojan Is The Ultimate American 1980s Supercar Designed to take on Ferrari, this prototype Pontiac Tojan features crazy 80s styling and an 800hp boat engine. Yes. An 800hp boat engine ... The 1980s. Besides reigning as the golden era for culture and social evolution, the decade of neon lights also proved an enormously creative time for the automotive industry. Manufacturers granted their in-house design teams a relaxed air of freedom, while engineers installed all manner of electronic experimentation. None more so than Pontiac. In a bid to take on Ferrari, Pontiac utilized all the modern technological advancements it could muster. The Tojan was born.

The GTO began life as an option package for the 1964 Le Mans eventually becoming a separate vehicle entirely in 1966. However, it was the restyling for the 1965 GTO that created the platform that shaped the rest of the first generation and secured the GTO as Pontiacs most iconic muscle car.

32,450 GTOs were sold in 1964 and in 1965 that number more than doubled, but today these cars are somewhat rarely seen and hard to find in their original form, with low mileage, and up to factory standards. Every now and then we gear heads do catch a break though. Like with this beautiful, red 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible being offered by Autoform out of Vancouver, Canada.

While it is plain to see from the interior that it is fairly original, it is also clear that it has been well taken care of. Additionally, with only 62,000 KM, or roughly 38,525 miles, on the 389 CI engine and standard 3 speed automatic transmission and an asking price of $63,400 CAD ($47,363 USD), it is quite the catch for the muscle car enthusiast or classic car collector alike.
