RealRides of WNY - 1965 Pontiac Tempest Custom

This 1965 Pontiac Tempest Custom has been owned by Hamburg’s Bill Marrero for about 20 years, long enough to have had time to add many personal touches: like the front buckets, console, and grille from a GTO; Rally wheels which he bought oh, so cheaply at a neighborhood yard sale; and a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic transmission which replaced the car’s original Super Turbine 300 2-speed, and is hooked-up to the Tempest’s original 326 cu. in., 2-bbl V8. Riding in Bill’s car brought back lots of good, old memories!
