The LeMans/Tempest was famous for being the platform that John DeLorean (with engineering help from Russell Gee and Bill Collins) turned into the fire-breathing GTO, but a basic Tempest isn't a bad classic for cruising around.
Under the hood is a 326 cubic inch V8 that was rated at 250 horsepower from the factory and is mated to a 2-speed Powerglide automatic. The unibody compact with torque tube with rear mounted transaxle from the previous generation Tempest was replaced with a conventional body on frame with classic engine/trans setup in 1964.
For a car that has been neglected for 15 plus years this thing looks in good shape, although the seller does note that a mouse made a nest in the headliner and the entire thing needs a good scrubbing.
