For Sale: 1964 Pontiac Tempest in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is thrilled to present this 1964 Pontiac Tempest Custom Convertible for sale. Its not often that you see a Tempest that hasn't been converted into a GTO Tribute. In 1964, the Tempest was redesigned as a more-conventional vehicle and enlarged from a compact to an intermediate-sized car with a 115 in (2,900 mm) wheelbase and an overall length of 203 in (5,200 mm). The unibody, curved driveshaft and transaxle were gone, replaced by a traditional front engine, front transmission, body-on-frame, and solid rear axle design used by all of GM's other cars but the Corvette and Corvair. Together with its sister cars (the Oldsmobile F-85/Cutlass and Buick Special/Skylark), the Tempest/Le Mans moved to the new A body platform shared with the new Chevrolet Chevelle, and all three cars received updates and modifications standardizing them throughout--including the wheels--by GM edict. The cars were, in ascending order, base Tempest, Tempest Custom, and Le Mans. Moving this beauty along is believed to be the original 326 CID V8 engine, that has been rebuilt. Paired with a not original but fully rebuilt 4 Speed Manual transmission. The Engine, Drive Train, Transmission, and rear end were all redone in 2019. The paint on this sleek convertible is sure to grab attention in turn your head red. Keeping the theme alive, drawling you inside is matching red vinyl interior.
