It’s believed that only about 7,200 LeMans V8 convertibles were produced, and nearly 60 years later, how many do you think survived with this kind of history and originality? While most of this car has a terrific originality, one part you’ll be quite thankful that it was replaced along the way is the convertible top. After all, they just can’t stand up to over half a century and still look this well-presented today.
This is the final-year for the first-generation Pontiac Tempest, and it’s the one to have. It still retains the sports car-like driving features, and now it’s wrapped around what’s arguably the most attractive Wide Track sheetmetal of the series. This one has a striking look from across a parking lot with its bright and correct Grenadier Red paint.
In fact, this 326 cubic-inch V8 would highlight the liveliness that paved the way for the GTO the next year. With a powerhouse this significant, it’s nice to know that the original motor was rebuilt around 20k miles ago. So today it runs and drives great.
