This here is one cool drop-top. On the showroom floor now is this 1966 Pontiac Tempest Convertible, ready to be enjoyed by its next buyer. This one's got a load of options that make it enjoyable to drive, such as a 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, and a power convertible top. For 1966, the Pontiac Tempest underwent a major overhaul. These included more rounded bodylines, with a Coke-bottle styling effect that was similar to the full-size Pontiacs of the time and was the styling fad .....
for American cars in the 1960s. Additionally, this '66 gets its power from a large 400 C.I. V8 from 1973, replacing the original V8 of much smaller displacement. Torque from that 400 gets to the pavement through a 4-speed manual transmission, providing for fun and immediate shifting. The exterior paint looks beautiful and has been buffed to a glimmering shine, looking great matched to this Tempest's white convertible top. The white interior vinyl trim looks great when paired with this Tempest's bucket seats, and is very comfortable when cruising. Options fitted to this Tempest include power steering, a power convertible top, a deluxe woodgrain steering wheel, an original AM pushbutton radio with an aftermarket under-dash CD player, a heater, and a nice-sounding dual exhaust system. The car rides on some great-looking Pontiac Motor Division rally wheels on top of GT radial blackwall tires. If you're looking to find a beautiful old Pontiac that combines classic muscle cruiser feel with timeless Detroit style, then this is your chance to drive it home.
