1962 Pontiac Tempest convertible, red with white interior

Tempest Le Mans: snappy mover--but opulent

Know the story of the Tempest? Here it is in a nutshell. It's a cocky little dust-kicker with the sweetest handling characteristics this side of LeMans. That's because it has a fired-up, gas-saving 4-cylinder engine in front, balanced by a rear transmission. (Tempest, you know, is the 4 that goes around acting like a V-8!) And get that interior! Buckets . . . full carpeting . . . special trim and hardware. Four-speed stick-shift optional at extra cost. Don't skip seeing the Tempest LeMans or taking it out for a run. Your Pontiac dealer will start you on your way to being the most elegant sport on the block.
