1965 Pontiac TempestUp for sell is my award winning 1965 Pontiac Tempest. You won't find another like this one. This car is my daily driver, and is very reliable. I have 899 pictures of everything that has been done, and I have just about every single receipt(which I have itemized list (to make it easier to find for warranties). I would say the car has been resto restored to about 90%, it lacks some interior work mainly. I know this is a lot to read, but I want you to know everything about it and to show how much has been put into it.
The car has all entries shaved and solenoids to open all entries. All which are controlled through a 2-way Viper alarm system and 60lb solenoids. It is painted Ford's CX Metallic Dark Shadow Grey. It has the GTO hood on it, and a set of originalLe-mansGrills and header panel(t-bar). I also have install a set of original GTO tail light bezels. If someone was to clone a GTO it wouldn't take much. I personally want everyone to know it is a Tempest. As pictured I ground off the GTO off the LS1 covers and installed the 1961 Tempest emblems in them. It has a set of MB Old School style 17"x8" rims.
For the interior, it is black and body color. Everything was pulled out and the interior was coated withLizard Skininside the passengers compartment and the trunk(to keep sound and heat to a minimum. The front and rear seats are from a 2004 Pontiac GTO(they do need some work). It has Cut pile black carpet, It has The OEM star pattern headliner(needs to be pulled tighter), I did cut into the dash and install (2) round A/C vents and a CD player. For the moment it has a old Vintage Air system in it, I had plans of installing a perfect fit Classic Auto Air Kit in it with their billet controls, that is what the square hole in the gauge cluster is for. The dash has the following gauges (from left to right) Fast Dynojet Wideband O2, next is the Progressive Methanol Controller and boost gauge(running (2) 3 gallonnozzles), (the rest are all AutoMeter's ultra lites)Water Temp, Speedometer, Oil pressure, Volts, and Fuel. There is a AutoGauge Monster 5" Tach with shift light mounted to the console too. The battery, Main power circuit breaker, 5 gallon Methanol tank are located in the trunk. There is panels made to clean up and smooth out the appearance of the trunk. The raised floor folds up so if you would like to keep it clean and store anything underneath it.
For Powertrain: It has a Turbocharged LS 5.7L running 15psi of Boost. Republic Custom Engine built this one for me. It has a factory crank with ARP Mains, ACL bearings, A set of Factory 5.3L rods (a little stronger) with ARP rod bolts, Weisco 3.905" Forged pistons with plasma-moly rings(gaped for 20lbs of boost), Double Roller timing chain, high volume oil pump, Z06 camshaft .550 Lift, Freshened up factory heads with .600 Lift springs, A LS6 Intake with a cable Throttle body, and Green top Lighting injectors. It has a set of factory 2000 camaro exhaust manifolds to 2.5" into one 3" with a into the turbocharger(Mid mounted). It has a 76mm full ceramic ball bearing Turbocharger and starts spooling right around 2,000 rpm's. It then runs to a 3 chamber MagnaFlow muffler. Then the exhaust exits at the rear bumper (stealth and quite) The exhaust is put together with v-bands and is easily removed, I also have a 3" tube to exit the rear that replaces the muffler if rumble is what you want. The Transmission is a Nemesis Stage II 700r4 with a 2200stall converter. The driveshaft was made by stan hopkins, The differential is a BOP 8.2 with 3.73:1 Gears and a Auburn Posi unit.
Suspension and others: The front has Tubular upper and lower control arms with greasable solid bushings, 1 1/4" sway bar, UMI springs, 11" drilled and slotted front disc brake conversion. The rear has Tubular upper and lower (Adjustable) control arms with poly bushings, and it has factory replacement Moog springs. It retains the factory style drum brakes. The body mounts have been changed to poly mounts as well. It has been built for handling. The fuel system is a factory tank with a trap door compartment and a PA-4(Tanks inc.) In-tank pump with a sump tray. A access has been cut into the trunk and a removable panel put in for ease of any future maintenance. All fuel lines and oil lines are all -AN fittings. It has a Aeromotive Fuel pressure regulator that is boost referenced.
I'm sure I can go on for days, but this is a big list of what has been done.
