1963 Pontiac Tempest S/W (Factory A/FX Drag Car)

In 1963, Pontiac engineers shoehorned the big 421 Super-Duty V8 producing 405
horsepower into the compact Tempest body for drag racing. They produced a total of 12 of
these factory lightweights, 6 coupes and 6 station wagons. With an aluminum front end, the
12 cars were placed in the hands of some of the best drag racing teams in the sport.
