The Definitive Pontiac GTO Guide: 1964-1967 After a brainstorming session, Pontiac executives and engineers decided to slot a 389-ci V-8 into the intermediate- sized Tempest against GM rules and the GTO was created. Little did they know what a profound impact that decision would make. The GTO would become a sensation and later was recognized as the first muscle car of the 1960s. Visionaries Pete Estes, John DeLorean, and other key Pontiac executives knew the youth market was waiting for a bold, lightweight sporty car. When their staff toyed with the concept of putting the large V-8 in the car, Pontiac executives jumped on the idea to meet that perceived market demand. Pontiac had a high-performance street car that could light up its tires and outperform the vast majority of the cars on the road. It also reshaped Pontiacs image of a company producing stodgy, lumbering full-size cars into a high-performance youth brand.
