THE GAS-SAVING "4" WITH Pontiac PUNCH !
Tempest – the new size car that broke away from the pack in '61 is primed to go for '62. This year's gas-saving "4" is loaded with Pontiac punch. Big line-up of models. Two Coupés. Sedan. Wagon. Convertible. And two exclusive models make the scene this year. The LeMans Coupé and LeMans Convertible. (That's Luh-mahnz) Both get the full Pontiac posh treatment. Tempest for '62 is a going machine, priced low.

A potent new kind of car by Pontiac – Grand Prix! The personally styled car with the power personality!
This new member of the Pontiac line has grille and rear deck styling all its own. And it's the lowest Pontiac of all – just four and a half feet from road to roofline. This custom-equipped, high voltage Coupé called the Grand Prix comes with all this: A new 303 h.p. Trophy V-8 with 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, center control console, tachometer, bucket seats, choice of five solid color interiors, full instrument panel cushion, acceleration rear axle ratio. Aluminum wheels, four-speed Synchromesh transmission, and Hydra-Matic are extra-cost options. (Both of these optional transmissions are floor-shift.) If you'd like to try a kind of driving that's like nothing else ... get your hands oil tills one fast!

Safari – that's Pontiac's word for wagons. Stylish and spacious with the hustle and handling that going people go for.
There's only one Wide-Track wagon. Pontiac makes it. The name is Safari. From the cargo-cradling Wide-Track stance to its Trophy V8-triggered response, the Safari is something special. It's built for people who don't want to leave their comfort behind when they go wagoning. If you like to travel surrounded by elegance. you'll favor the Bonneville Custom Safari. It seats six and steals the scene everywhere it goes. The six- and nine-passenger Catalina Safaris transport evening clothes and honored guests, just as smartly as garden tractors, camping equipment and kids. All but the front seats fold flush with the floor in both models. Concealed luggage compartment for valuables. Retractable rear window is power-operated on 9-passenger models, crank-operated on six-passenger Safaris (with power operation optional at extra cost). Don't settle for less than a Safari.

Pontiac shortened the 112-inch wheelbase of a compact Tempest Coupé by 15-inches, shaved the roof completely off, added some custom touches, and created the Monte Carlo show car. Notable features added to the car are the cut-down windshield and side windows, along with dual aerodynamic fairings behind the bucket seats. Powering the rear wheels is a 194.5-CID slant 4-cylinder engine. Double racing stripes flow between the traditional Pontiac split grille design, continue over the hood, across the trunk lid and into the concave rear panel.
