What’s been at the workshop lately?
How ‘bout this 1965 Pontiac Tempest Le Mans GTO Hardtop.
In 1961 the Pontiac Lemans started out as a trim upgrade for the Tempest.
Then in 1963, for 1 year only, the LeMans was designed as a separate model in the Pontiac compact car lineup of 2-door coupes and convertibles.
Next, in 1964, the Tempest line changed to an intermediate-size car on the new GM A platform.
The LeMans was still its own separate model and a 2-door hard top was added.
Shortly after the start of the 1964 model year the LeMans became available with the GTO performance package – included a 389 cu in (6.4L) V8 from the full-sized Pontiac line.
Come 1965 the Pontiac’s A-body line up included the Tempest (model), the Tempest Custom, the Lemans (trim package) and the GTO (performance package) and the entire line was restyled.
Then in 1966 the GTO became a separate model of its own, although it the same basic body as the Tempest and LeMans models.
