PHILIP HANSELL’S 1964 LEMANS
Also available - two versions of the 326 cu. in. V8 along with either a 2-speed automatic with torque converter or a 3-speed or 4-speed manual transmission.
The famous GTO (Gran Turismo Omologato) option package was released for the first time in 1964 with a little over 32,000 produced and was available on the Tempest LeMans. The idea behind the package was to get around the restrictions of overpowered vehicles by offering the 389 cu. in V8 engine as an option.
