1965 Pontiac Tempest Wagon
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1965-pontiac-tempest-wagon Here's a 65 Tempest wagon in amazing shape! It has a numbers matching 326ci V8 and a fresh 200-R4 4 speed automatic transmission! The engine has 18,000 miles on it since the rebuild so everything is in tip top condition! The car only has 92,000 original miles. The paint is in fantastic shape, especially considering it's 47 years old! It has restored 7x14 Rally II wheels with BFG tires, a new power brake system, new power steering pump, new power rear window motor, and tons of other new parts. The entire car has been gone through and is entirely mechanically sound. The interior has been restored using much of the original vinyl, has new carpet, a new headliner, new arm rests, and the AM radio works! Other options include front and rear sway bars, new 2 1/2 inch Exhaust and new splitters, new windshield and heater core, and way too much to list! Comes with a 4 barrel setup as well! This thing is ready for a road trip!

1963 Pontiac LeMans Rare 4 Cylinder Four Barrel Four-speed 3.73 Posi - Half of a 389 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1963 Pontiac LeMans. It's powered by a 194.5 Cubic Inch 45 Degree Four Cylinder, topped with a 4 BBL Carb, and running through dual Exhaust. Pontiac, basically cut a 389 V8 in half...in fact, it uses the same head as the 389 and the 421. In this case, the four cylinder is backed by a four-speed manual and a set of 3.73 Gears with Posi. As you can see, it really is a great looking car and would look right at home on the dragstrip in the 1960's. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
