Certainly not all Tempests were GTO's! It's nice to see a six cylinder model that is in this condition. This would have been the economical grocery getter that was perhaps a better trim level than the equivalent Nova. Not sure about the automatic, whether Pontiac used Powerglide on the 6 cylinder models, or whether it was a three speed automatic.
