How to Restore Your Pontiac GTO
The 1964 Pontiac GTO started out as a hopped-up Tempest. Equipped with a 389-ci V-8, heavy-duty suspension, quick steering ratio, and a floor shiftier, the GTO delivered awe-inspiring performance and sparked the muscle car wars of the following years. During the muscle car era, the GTO established itself as a performance leader as one after another top GTO model hit the streets-RAM Air IV, 389 Tri-Power, Judge, and others.
