Wow, that was cool. I looked the 65 Pontiac Tempest I had and I found this interesting:
--or order up a quick V8, 250 HP on regular, 285 HP on premium.
I believe it. Mine had a two speed automatic tranny, 2 bbl carb and a single exhaust. I put in a three speed tranny and dual exhaust but left the motor alone. Man, she was fast.
