Some fifty years ago, what later became known as the Baby Boomer generation was growing up while the American car industry was getting ready to start what was probably the best period for mass-produced performance automobiles in US history.
Starting with what is almost universally agreed to be the very first muscle car, the Pontiac GTO, the s and early s were the pinnacle of development of road rockets in and around the automotive city of Detroit. From the dozens of tire-shredding production hot rods that hit the American roads in the period, we've put together small ish story about the one which impressed us and most likely others as well the most.
The one that started it all. The original muscle car.
In a time when the Ferrari GTO, with its Bizzarrini-designed hp V12, was giving wet dreams to the majority of car enthusiasts in the world, a few Pontiac people decided to take everyone by storm.
Unlike other performance cars of the era, the Pontiac GTO actually brought power for the masses. The first ever GTO was actually a package for the Pontiac Tempest, and it managed to establish the muscle car realm by mistake.
The three men responsible for the creation of the car were Pontiac engine specialist Russell Gee, chassis engineer Bill Collins and none other than chief engineer John De Lorean, who would go on to create the DMC and suffer a government drug deal entrapment about two and a half decades later.
Even though Pontiac's image at the time was relying heavily on performance vehicles, General Motors had instituted a ban on all racing activities from its divisions in This made Pontiac head honchos think about alternative means of promoting their sporty image.
The mid-size car thus received a larger cid 6. Later transforming into a stand-alone model thanks to its major success, the GTO went on to became defined as "the original muscle car". Ironically named the "Goat" by fans, the hp version of this wolf in sheep's clothing could go from naught to 60 mph in under 7 seconds without any modifications.
Even though the was so successful, the model remained an option for the Tempest, but it was further improved, mostly design wise. It got the vertically stacked headlights to keep it in line with Pontiac's full-size models, while a tri-power option was offered, giving function and not only looks for the until then non-functional hood scoops.
Also, the grille lost the horizontal bars and the taillights became chrome ribbed. It received minor styling changes, but enough to differentiate it even more from the original. Sadly, in the middle of that year, Genera Motors decided to put a ban on building any engine with more than one carburetor, so the Tri-Power option was dropped.
A year later, inthe GTO saw its first major restyling, starting to be manufactured on a new platform also.Speed up your Search. Find used Pontiac Gto Project Car for sale on eBay, Craigslist, Amazon and others.
