Pontiac tempest 1966

Social Distance Shop Tour: 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback and a 1933 Ford Roadster Hiding Away Our next door neighbor in Iowa City, a Russian professor, drove a white ’62 LeMans convertible like the one above. I vividly remember the throb of the big four as I rode with her to Sears to get her lawnmower fixed. But the open top was even more effective than DeLorean’s other efforts to drown out its agricultural sounds, at least above thirty or so. And I once briefly drove a co-worker’s base ’61 sedan in LA: despite being elderly, its intrinsic balance (which could be all-too easily upset for amusing purposes) and decent steering for an American car was downright un-American. If only its engine ran sweetly like my Peugeot 404′s. But the trade-off was the torque: very American indeed.Initially, DeLorean’a plans envisioned a front-engined car that used the Corvair body and kept the entire Corvair rear suspension and its transaxle as originally placed, not even turning it around to face the motor. Utilizing a hollow shaft, the Corvair transmission would actually be “driven” from the rear of the car; as a result, the torque converter would hang from the back of the differential, where normally it would have mated up to the Corvair’s rear engine.I’m a little unsure about that last part; there was a famous professional drag-racer named Arnie “The Farmer” Beswick who raced a couple of 1963 Tempests: an altered wheelbase 2-door and a station wagon. They had big engines (421 cid) but they might have had beefed-up rope-drive drivelines, simply to prove how stout they could be made. ” I see an update of DeLorean’s original Tempest idea: a 1965 Tempest coupe based on the stunningly beautiful ’65 Corvair body, with the 230 hp Sprint OHC six under a lengthened front end and sharing that Corvair’s new Corvette-based rear suspension.”

With models proliferating as they were, there was no way that each of GM’s 6 consumer-grade vehicle Divisions could design their own unique assortment of 4s, 6s and 8s. If every Division was going to get multiple lines, the sharing of engines that would result a few years down the pike was inevitable. 1966. Pontiac Tempest.

This Little Indians website has an interesting article on the difference between the ’61-’62 and redesigned ’63 rear swing axle suspension and modifications made to improve handling. Some cut the wheel centers out of the 15 inch wheels and welded them into 13 inch Corvair wheels, and they fit.

But by the 1970’s, it seems like the 350 V-8 and THM 350 package were becoming pretty standard across the line. Perhaps part of this was emissions.

Don't let the rusted out, badly dinged, or otherwise damaged hood degrade your vehicle's appearance A major facelift was made on the 1966 Tempest that included more rounded bodylines with a Coke-bottle effect similar to the full-sized Pontiacs. New four-door pillarless hardtop sedans were added to the Tempest Custom line. Under the hood, the Chevy-derived 215 six was replaced by a new Pontiac-built 230 in³ overhead cam six, the only such engine found in an American production car at that time. This was also the first American-built engine to use a belt to time the camshaft to the crankshaft rather than a chain. The base OHC had a one-barrel carburetor and was rated at 165 hp (123 kW; 167 PS), designed for economy buyers. Optionally available as part of the Sprint option package on two-doors was a four-barrel, high-compression 207 hp (154 kW; 210 PS) version of the OHC six, marketed as an alternative to higher-priced European sport sedans, which had similar OHC engines. For those wanting V8 power, the 326 and 326 HO options continued with horsepower ratings of 250 and 285 hp (213 kW; 289 PS), respectively, and GTO engines stayed the same.The guy was a real derelect. Haven’t seen him since 1977, so I don’t know how he turned out.

The ’61 and ’62 Tempests did also offer a version of the aluminum Buick 215 CID V8 optionally, but only 1-2% of them were built with it, and only a tiny handful with a stick. Theoretically, the combination of the light and smooth V8 with a four speed and the Tempest’s independent suspension and perfect weight balance would have potentially made a very appealing package. But the V8 was troublesome from the beginning, and Pontiac had to “buy” it from Buick, so the four was pushed heavily. And the hi-po four did make almost as much horsepower as the V8. Nonetheless, from 1960 to 1966 GM built three production cars that attempted to upend the But Pontiac was given a very tiny budget to adapt it, so the 1961 Tempest (above) used most of the Olds..

I very strongly suspect that it was done to try to mitigate some aspect of the swing axle rear suspension. I can’t think of any other reason…I know DeLorean had a thing about undersized tires, but this goes a bit overboard. Maybe there was a clearance issue under the transaxle/driveshaft.

But Pontiac was given a very tiny budget to adapt it, so the 1961 Tempest (above) used most of the Olds F85 sheetmetal with a ’59 Pontiac-derived front end and a new rear end grafted on. But the four cylinder, flex-drive and Corvair transaxle and its rear suspension were retained, for better or for worse.The axle shaft that isn’t articulated is fixed to the differential so, as the wheel on the end of that shaft bounces up and down, it forces that axle shaft and the differential to rotate, much like a solid axle.

Not only the Tempest, but the Vega, the Citation, the American-built Golfs, the 2-seater t-birds, etc.Our featured car is a 1963 LeMans, which was the sporty/upscale variant analogous to the Corvair’s Monza with the same bucket seats and higher trim. The ’63s were restyled to make them appear bigger, wider and longer, but the inside was no larger. This convertible has all the right options, at least for those that have a soft spot for the four. I found it in front of this shop where it had just been converted to the factory 165 hp four barrel setup. And it also has the four-speed stick. Not surprisingly, its owner turns out to be a ’63 Tempest junkie; it was the car he always wanted in high school. Pontiac (Понтиак) Trans Sport 2.3i-16V 4 дв. минивэн 5МКПП 1993-1996 г.

The Polaris appears to have larger tires than the Corvair. Did DeLorean mandate these, or do they just look bigger to my eyes?

Only registered users can participate in discussions The worst was that it was a simple swing axle: rigid half-axles jointed only at each side of the rigidly mounted differential. This was the hot new thing in Europe back in the thirties, but its tendency to jack up in fast corners and create snap oversteer and flipping had become all-too well known.Unfortunately, I’m afraid that the inexpensive gasoline of the time – and the popularity of V8s – means that these will remain unanswered questions…

Curbside Classic: 1963 Pontiac Tempest LeMans - Pontiac Tries To

There were some minor revisions for 1963, but I’m not exactly certain of what exactly they were.Reading the part about Mercedes-Benz’s swing axle design and anti-jacking compensating spring design, I had to ask why GM didn’t use that with the Corvair and Tempest? That would’ve made for safer handling, and saved countless lives.

Polaris. RzR 1000. Pontiac. Tempest. Torrent. Trans Am Thank you for making this article. I have a better understanding of the transaxle now. I never knew DeLorean had designed this, nor that it originally came with a large 4 cylinder. A good friend of my father had a white tempest that just sat around most of the time. He always told me that it had a 215 8 cylinder in it which I found fascinating as a teenager. Everytime he told that it had a 2 speed in it I would say “a powerglide?” He would say “no, it was a pontiac transmission made for the tempest” I wanted him to sell me that car so bad, and I couldn’t really explain why.

Our next door neighbors, the Bordners, had a series of Ponchos. The first one I remember that had any flair to it was a baby blue 63 Tempest convertible. I now know that it was not a LeMans, because it had the round taillights. I cannot recall what replaced it, it was either a beige VW with a sunroof (1965 or so) or the 66 GTO with the 4 speed that Mrs. Bordner drove. Through the 60s, that driveway was an odd combination of hot Pontiacs and VWs.That’s why Mercedes developed its innovative single low-pivot rear axle (above) with an anti-jacking compensating spring in the early fifties, a temporary step before it adopted a double-jointed irs in 1968. BMW’s “Neue Klasse” 1500/1800/2000 sedans first arrived in 1962 with a double-jointed rear suspension. As did the Jaguar S sedan. Europe was moving on, and GM would quickly learn this painful lesson in penny-pinching. The 1963 Corvette Sting Ray had a new double-jointed rear axle, which the 1965 Corvair also adopted to great effect.To mitigate its handling rep, the 1963 Tempest’s rear suspension was revised with a modified control arm geometry and other tricks. But it was still a swing axle, and the Tempest’s end was already in sight, to be replaced by live-axle conformity.As it happens a man named Lee Iacocca was working on a similar concept at Ford at the same time, a car that would be released later in 1964 and called the “Mustang”.

Love these cars. The 215 V8 was highly sought after for Vega engine swaps, but I was unable to locate one and ended up with a Buick 3.8l instead. My Tempest connection (besides having once owned a 1966 Sprint 6 four door) was that I used the radiator out of a Tempest that had once had the 215 (long gone when I got to it) to cool my Vega.Location Of Engine Code: (Six-Cyl) - On cylinder head-to-block contact surface behind oil filter pipe. (V8) - Stamped on right front side of block or beneath production engine number on machined pad on right hand bank of engine block.

The post states that the curved driveshaft didn’t need any bearings. That a curved torsion bar-like shaft could have torque applied and stay in a curve with no bearings does not make engineering sense, and I remembered it having two bearings along the way. Pontiac. Porsche

The Tempest irs did have trailing arms,as did the Corvair too. But they could only partly offset the reality that a swing axle is only jointed at the center (differential), and thus the camber changes were still very much there. It takes double-jointed rear drive shafts to get rid of that. Updated May 6 2020. May 2020. March 2020. February 2020. January 2020. December 2019. United States. Australia. Canada. Germany. Japan.

There was the aforementioned bearing whine, then there was probably a limit to the power that a curved driveline would safely accept.

It’s too bad that GM couldn’t keep the Buick/Olds/Pontiac Y body going through the 60’s along [as done with Corvairs] with the BOF A bodies. Could have Tempest companion model to the LeMans series. But V8’s ruled and we know the rest of the story.I’m a bit late getting here, but just wanted to say thank you Paul, for yet another fascinating article. Your writing style flows so nicely. 🙂 1966 Pontiac Tempest GTO Wallpapers Download Pontiac Tempest GTO car wallpapers for your desktop, mobile or tablet in HD high resolution formats.To reply to an old thread, the early Jeep Wagoneer used a similar setup for the optional independent front suspension on 4WD models. It had a split axle with a single pivot (though not placed low) and the differential moved with one of the wheels. Handling must have been kind of ‘interesting’ on these.I think a ’63 Buick Special would’ve worked better in the movie. Maybe the prop master couldn’t find one.

Nonetheless, from 1960 to 1966 GM built three production cars that attempted to upend the traditional format: The rear-engined 1960 Corvair, the front-wheel drive 1966 Toronado and the 1961 Tempest. Although the Corvair and the Toronado tend to get the lion’s share of attention, the Tempest’s format was by far the most enduring;  essentially, the Tempest was a BMW before BMW built one of their own. If only Pontiac had stuck with it.Aside from all the jostling, this would result in a huge amount of unsprung weight which would have made the handling worse, if anything. In the case of the “rope drive” Tempest, the engine isn’t connected to the diff, but the transmission is, so the problem would be the same to a lesser degree. Year: 1966 Make: Pontiac Model: Tempest Price: $12500 Mileage: 128000 Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing Location (State): AL Color: Red Transmission: Manual Drivetrain: Rear Wheel Drive LS Engine All of which leads to a question: Didn’t the 1967 Camaro pull from the Corvair parts bin, e.g., sharing windshields and such? If so, then the Camaro could be viewed as a decontented 1963 Tempest in key respects. If DeLorean hadn’t been captured by big block mania he might have pressed for the Firebird to incorporate higher-end technology such as the Corvair’s IRS and an improved version of the Tempest’s old transaxle.

Great article, I’m on board with a ’65 Corvair rear and 6 OHC engine upgrade that would have been interesting.But in the case of the Corvair, the differential, transaxle, and engine are all bolted together as one unit, so the whole powertrain would have to rotate whenever that wheel bounced up and down. I keep learning new things this week. I had never paid enough attention to these to realize that the 1963 Tempest and LeMans had two completely different rear end treatments. The LeMans was very predictive of the 64 car, while the Tempest was a one-year-only treatment with the twin over and under round taillights. This adds to the revelation from earlier this week that these were the only Pontiacs through most or all of the 60s to use 15 inch wheels. Nor did I recall how massive the Trophy 4 was in the world of 4 cylinder engines. 1966 Pontiac Tempest. Article from hemmings.com. 1966 Pontiac Tempest | Hemmings Daily.

I asked to look under the hood and was amazed to see this huge four that looked like half a V8. I think the early International Scouts used a similar engine design. But I only saw a Pontiac IRS and transaxle many years later, when a customer’s ’63 Tempest V8 was on the lift, with the engine running, at a shop where I worked. It was weird seeing that naked torque converter spinning in mid air!

Very interesting article that brings back some memories! Our neighbors were Pontiac people, and, in the late 1960s, they owned a 1965 Pontiac Catalina four-door sedan and a 1963 Pontiac Tempest sedan. I remember being fascinated by the four round taillights on the Tempest. Their Tempest was beige with a light brown top, while their Catalina was the same color as the 1963 sedan on the trailer. 105.7k Followers, 579 Following, 1,705 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (@pontiac_firebird_transam) Paint Codes - Exterior Colors Color Name / Code Color Image Color Name / Code Color Image A - Starlight Black Lucite® Code - 88L Dulux® Code - 93-005

  1. Those big wheels and tires really transform the look of this car. In reading DeLorean’s book, I recall that he was for years (at both Pontiac and Chevrolet) at war with beancounters who kept insisting on dinky tires. Delorean always thought that big tires made the car look better, even forgetting the safety and performance aspects. I wonder if this was the car that lit that fuse?
  2. The benefits of the rigid torque tube went well beyond producing a nearly flat floor. For instance, it was a key adaptation to the four cylinder engine that helped reduce inherent vibration. In theory, a four-cylinder has perfect primary balance, but with only two power impulses per crankshaft rotation, second order and torsional vibrations can be quite significant, especially as displacement increases. Traditionally, the Europeans kept their fours at or below two liters for just that reason. In 1975, Mitsubishi reintroduced the balance shaft in its 2.6-liter four; it proved highly effective, and is now very commonly used to smooth out large fours.
  3. The first GTO was actually little more than an options package for the Pontiac Tempest, it cost buyers $295 and included a 6 litre V8 (389 cubic inches), dual exhausts, a Carter AFB 4-barrel carburettor, chromed valve covers, a 3-speed manual gearbox (with Hurst shifter), stiffer suspension, a bigger front anti-roll bar, twin hood scoops, wider wheels, and GTO badging.
  4. What I don’t understand is how the torque converter is retained. On conventional set ups it’s bolted to the flex plate and just engages splines or tangs in the transmission but on this I just don’t know how they keep it in there.

I am saddened yet again by the failure to espy a single curb feeler upon any of the pictured vehicles.So why were flexible driveshafts (to my knowledge) never used again? It seems like a great idea, allowing a flat or almost-flat floor in a front-engine rear-drive car.

John DeLorean’s tenure at Pontiac may be more remembered for the ’59 Wide-Tracks, the GTO, the Pontiac OHC six, and the ’69 Grand Prix, but in my opinion the 1961-1963 Tempest stands as his most ambitious and creative engineering effort. He was as aware as anyone of the limitations of Detroit’s big-car formula: What it produced was invariably too big, too thirsty, front-heavy and dull-handling. Now, with the 1960 Corvair waiting in the wings, DeLorean’s longstanding plans to build a truly advanced and practical car would finally come to (not quite ripe) fruition.There has always been one mystery for me about the ’63. I’ve read elsewhere that the rear suspension was revised, even one instance where it said semi-trailing arms replaced the swing axles. I was not aware that the swing axles were retained even with the revisions. Pontiac Tempest Sedan 1966 2nd Generation Facelift (1966 - 1970). Latest spotted.

Tia Leoni gave a great soliloqui on the differences between the 63 Pontiac LeMans and the Tempest (and the Olds F85?) in “My Cousin Vinnie”. GaryReading this again reminds me that when this was first posted, I had not done my research into the 1962 Buick V6. It is interesting that both Divisions made a smaller engine by cutting on the bigger V8 – Pontiac cut lengthwise to make a big 4 and Buick cut crosswise to make a V6. Both of which suffered from a lot of vibration due to the compromises necessitated by costs. And that big-assed 4 was only 3 cubic inches shy of the displacement of Buick’s initial 198 cid V6. Two very different solutions to the same problem. Neither of which was all that satisfactory. All the parts were there to make something really outstanding but GM knew its customers and a great handling car wasnt wanted it took un til BMW copied a Triumph 2000 for decent driving sedans to gain a foothold on the US market.

Awesome article! I’ve always liked Pontiac cars of the early (1961-63) sixties. My favourites are the Tempest and LeMans. It’s a shame they abandoned the rear independent suspension when they did. I believe they had a great idea, and should’ve improved on it.This article and its contents are protected by copyright, and may only be republished with a credit and link back to Silodrome.com - ©2020New neighbors moved in down the street from us around 1962 with a new Tempest wagon. Even at the age of 6 I knew it was unlike most other American cars with it’s 4 cylinder engine. I don’t know if it was troublesome or they just didn’t like it, but I think it was replaced with a Fairlane wagon. New buyers moved in about 1973 with a Honda 600Z coupe, and despite a few more changes of ownership there have been only Japanese cars in that driveway for almost 40 years.In the end, though, it was just a lot simpler, cheaper, and quieter to just stick with a normal, solid driveshaft with a more intrusive driveline hump.Wouldn’t there be a shaft that runs through the gearbox input shaft to drive the torque converter or clutch though? That would have to have a bearing that could take an axial load before it went inside the input shaft, the other end is a bit harder to visualise, but I expect the output side of the clutch/converter was the main locating support.

Terrific article Paul! When I was about 6 years old our next door neighbor bought one of these used for their 20-something daughter. I would watch her start it up and back out of the driveway. The car made a very unusual howling sound that seemed to be coming from the rear. I wonder if it was the torque converter.Except it’s all not true.

That’s why Detroit shunned fours like the plague: In order to provide American-style torque and power, American fours had almost always been large. At low engine speeds, as in Ford’s Models T and A, they were not too bothersome. A suitable six might have been perfect, but Pontiac had little choice but to create a compact, low-cost four the quick and dirty way: By eliminating one bank of its 389 CID V8. It was a very cost-effective solution because it not only used a high percentage of the V8′s parts, but could also be machined on the same lines as the V8.Dark Blue Lucite® Code - 9268LH (semi-gloss) Lucite® Code - 9284LH (flat) 1966 Pontiac Tempest parts online.

John DeLorean had chosen the GTO name as a hat-tip to Ferrari, it stands for Gran Turismo Omologato (homologated grand tourer). The Ferrari GTO was built from 1962 to 1964 and is now recognised as the single most valuable collector car in the world. Shop 1964 Pontiac Tempest vehicles for sale at Cars.com.

Power steering and power brakes are combined with a power antenna, bucket seats, and Soft-Ray tinted glass, and the car is wearing a fresh coat of its original Montero Red (with a black interior). Mecum are offering the GTO at the upcoming Kansas City Auction on the 24th of March, and the car is accompanied by its original factory paperwork to verify its originality. Many GTOs have been modified over the intervening decades with engine swaps being common, so a matching numbers car like this is likely to attract a number of discerning collectors.My best friend’s mother bought this very car (although the hardtop version) new as we were entering high school, so a year later we were screaming around L.A. in it as newly minted drivers. It was all black, with the 4-banger and the 4-speed on the floor, and I remember it sounding like a jet engine winding up as he would thrash it through the gears. He would really flog it, being so testosterone driven as only 16-year olds can be, and I would hang on for dear life as we tore around. He would never miss a chance to coerce his mother to let him have the car. It was truly the BMW sports coupe of its day.That’s not to say that the 195 cubic inch (3.2 L) four’s noise, vibration and harshness issues were all miraculously solved by DeLorean’s innovative mounting solutions. It’s a very big four, for better or for worse. It does have a fatter torque curve than a comparable six or eight for its displacement, and therefore is very responsive. And thanks to Pontiac’s high performance experience, it could be quite powerful; output started at 110 hp, and went up to 165 hp with the optional four barrel carburetor. That overshadows the 1961 Corvair’s 98 hp optional engine.

The idea to take a big V8 and drop it into a two-door Pontiac body is credited to Bill Collins, Russ Gee, and John DeLorean. The latter being the same man who would launch a car company bearing his name in 1975 – resulting in the DeLorean DMC-12.Although just 25 examples of the Jaguar XKSS were built it took the company over 60 years to complete them all, because of a tragic factory fire followed by a 58 year pause in the… Pontiac Tempest Le Mans GTO 1965 v1.1.
