1964 Pontiac GTO Convertible

The Famous Grand Turismo Omologato (GTO) Option Package Was Released In 1964 For LeMans Models This Year. The Idea Behind This Package Was To Circumvent A Corporate High Performance Ban By Providing The 389 cid V8 As An Option In The Most Luxurious Pontiac Intermediate.

There's a mystique surrounding America's first muscle car. Everyone loves the story of how GM wouldn't let its divisions sell factory hot rods, so Pontiac engineers John DeLorean, Bill Collins, and Russ Gee snuck the GTO to dealers as a LeMans option kit. Ad man Jim Wangers did a bang-up job promoting sales of this GTO option, and the car carved its own market niche. The GTO package arrived in mid-1964. It included a big-car 389 V-8 and some special appearance items in place of regular LeMans trim. There were GTO grille, fender, deck lid, and glove box door emblems, simulated engine-turned aluminum instrument panel inserts, and a hood with a dummy air vents. The GTO version of the 389 had special 10.75:1 compression 421 H.O. heads, big valves, a hot cam, a heavy-duty cooling system, starter, and battery, and low-restriction dual exhausts. The base four-barrel version produced 325 hp at 4,800 rpm. The Tri-Power option made 348 hp at 4900 rpm.

The Classic GTO's Had Some Special Appearance Items In Place Of Some Regular LeMans Styling Touches.
GTO stood for “Grand Turismo Omologato,” an Italian term for “grand touring coupe.” In his memoir Glory Days, Wangers credited DeLorean with coining the European name, but U.S. enthusiasts preferred calling the car the “GTO,” the “Goat,” the “Great One,” the “GeeTO,” or the “Tiger.” The 348-hp GTO hardtop did 0-to-60 mph in 6.6 seconds, and the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds. With the GTO option, a Tempest coupe was $2,852 and 7,384 GTO coupes were made. The two-door hardtop was the most popular GTO. It cost a bit over $100 more than the coupe, and Pontiac built 18,422 of these. The convertible, priced at $3,081, had a 6,644-unit production run.

Jim Mattison's Pontiac Historic Services documents cars for collectors. He said, “I believe that the interest and collectibility of Pontiacs will continue on and even grow. Since the release about the demise of Pontiac was announced, I've noticed a marked increase in folks looking to purchase a Pontiac.”

Only 6,644 Pontiac GTO Convertibles Were Made In The Model Year 1964. Even Lower Numbers For Tri-Power And 4 Speed..
