1964 Pontiac GTO

General Overview

Considered by many to be the first muscle car, meaning high performance and low-cost, the GTO became available in 1964 as an option to the Tempest LeMans.

The GTO featured distinctive appearance items in place of standard LeMans features.

The famous Gran Turismo Omologata (GTO), better know as ‘The Goat,’ ‘The Tiger,’ and ‘The Great One’ was for the first year offered to the public.

Standard engine was a 389 cubic inch producing 325 horsepower. Optional, you could order the same 389 cubic inch, but with 348 horsepower.

The GTO became a much greater success than Pontiac ever thought possible.
