1967 Pontiac Tempest

Varying slight changes occurred from the previous year on the all new Pontiac Tempest. This included a face-lift to the rear panels and grille which on base models had vertically arranged molded plastic grille bars in groups of four. Standard options included GM safety features, armrests, heater and defroster, cigar lighters, vinyl floor mats and a standard type steering wheel.

Bucket seats were available in the LeMans convertible, hardtop and sports coupe in either blue, turquoise, gold, black, parchment or red. The Sprint package was an option along with a 250 hp V8, or 285 hp V8.

The Sprint option was available on all LeMans, Tempest Customs, and Tempests except for station wagons and came with a 215 hp Overhead Cam Six with a 4 bbl Quadrajet carburetor, heavy-duty front shocks, springs and stabelizer bar, all synchro floor mounted stick shift, a special 3.55:1 axle ratio, chromed wheel openings and distinctive sports striping.

Corvair paint code plate is on the left cross-rail in the engine compartment. Corvette paint code plate is on the instrument panel brace, below the glove compartment.
