In 1964 the management of Pontiac worked around the General Motors mandate that mid size cars could not have an engine that exceeded 330 cubic inches. Pontiac offered the 389 cubic inch engine in the mid size Tempest as part of an option package. The GTO option package included a 389 /325HP engine, 3 speed manual transmission with a floor mounted Hurst shifter, sport suspension, wide wheels, GTO emblems, dual exhaust, and two chromed non functional hood scoops. Other options available with the GTO package included a 4 speed transmission, tachometer, a 3 carbuerator intake system and a sports steering wheel. Management felt confident that they could sell 5000 Tempests with the GTO option package. In fact 32,450 Pontiacs were sold in 1964 with the GTO option package and the muscle car era was born. Other manufacturers quickly scrambled to offer a car using the same formula ( mid size body & chassis with a large displacement engine, upgraded transmissions and heavy duty suspensions)
This Grenadier Red 1964 GTO is one of the best examples of Pontiacs first year GTO that you will find. We have the Pontiac Historical Societys report confirming that this car came from the factory with the GTO option package.
A Frame Off, Rotisserie Restoration was completed in 2016. We have pictures and receipts for much of the work. New floor pans, trunk pans and rear quarter panels were installed. The frame was stripped and repainted. All new suspension components were installed. The Brake system was completely refurbished with new brake lines, drums, pads, and master cylinder. The steering box was rebuilt, and a new gas tank was installed. A new dual exhaust system, that has a nice muscle car sound, adds the finishing touch to the chassis.
