A fantastic presentation of a nicely-restored and V8-powered 1967
Pontiac Tempest. So dig deeper on this turn-key classic, and
discover all the great upgrades and investments that make all the
It all starts with the paint. The slick presentation is courtesy of a solid investment in respraying the factory-correct Montego Cream. More than just extra luster from the modern clearcoat, there was special attention to get the panels straight, so the light rolls evenly across this classic. And there's even a nice pinstripe that helps highlight the Coke-bottle curves that made these Pontiac A-bodies so famous. This is so complete that even the brightwork has received attention, too. So it looks great on everything from the big chrome bumpers, to the headlight surrounds that highlight the stacked eyes of this wide track machine. And just for an added touch of aggression, this one carries modern Boss alloys that are staggered 18/20 inches front/rear.
The deep and dark black interior feels fresh from investment. And while these were intermediate-sized cars in 1967, today that means plenty of room to take up to five family and friends along with you for the ride. But even when it's just a solo drive, this Tempest is built around you. The three-spoke steering wheel provides that perfect vintage grippy feel; the full round gauge package is quite sporty; and the upgraded auxiliary readouts are a clear indication of something special under the hood.
The black inner fender walls and firewall do a great job of funneling your attention to the tidy V8. The 350 cubic-inch motor looks great with the correct turquoise on the block, bright air topper, and upgraded Pontiac valve covers. Plus, this V8 has plenty of power thanks to a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a rumbling dual exhaust. More than just the mean rumble, this one was built to be a true cruiser. Not only do you get great factory-style features like power steering and a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, but also there are all the right upgrades. For example, there are thick sway bars front and rear, and you have the grip of modern performance tires. And not only is there a new brake booster, but you also have modern front disc brakes with driller rotors.
This is a great all-around driving classic that also knows how to make an entrance. So if you want it all, you need to call today!!!
