1962 Pontiac Tempest

Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville is proud to digitally present to you this absolute UNIT of a 1962 Pontiact Tempest gasser. Now don't let the name fool you, this is NOT your grandpas old Pontiac. This car has traveled back in time to that 1962 hot august night lining up at the street light waiting for the flag to drop. This car is ready to hit the strip or to hit that local car show where I can guarantee you will not find another like it. This type of vehicle is the epitome of what a gasser is. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, Gasser refers to a style of drag race car that was prolific in the late 1950s through the 1960s that ran on gasoline fuel as apposed to race fuel. These cars typically competed in heads up drag races that were classed by engine size and car weight. In the faster classes these cars used a straight axel front suspension that produced the intimidating stance that gassers are known for. Easily recognized by the common features like higher front end stance that was developed as a means of weight transfer to the rear wheels for traction, this style became popular later as builders attempted to achieve a traditional nostalgic race look. This 1962 Pontiac Tempest features all of those nostalgic traits including the straight axel front suspension, fender exit headers and massive stack style injection but with all the modern day necessities to be a great weekend cruiser. Now lets get to the details. This car did undergo an extensive restoration and rebuild but did not take away from the long hard life of a vintage drag car. There is definitely a nice touch of originality to this vehicle that can be seen in the patina paint and original styled interior which has all been completely redone. Now to the Diamond in the ruff. This massive 428CI Engine is dressed up with all the goodies including a Performer RPM intake, 800 Double pumper Holley, Don Garlits Street Induction air cleaner, Howards solid flat tappet cam that just screams as soon as you hit that ignition. Putting that power to the ground is a completely redone Turbo 400 transmission sporting a 3800 stall that absolutely rips up the road paired to that 8inch ford with spool and 3.80 gears. If you are looking for a unique hot rod that will most definitely upset your neighbors then look no further this is the one! This 1962 Pontiac Tempest Gasser can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD photos at . For more information please call the Nashville showroom at 615-213-1800 or send us an email at .
