Answer: Although there had been powerful cars built up to this point, it is the 1964 Pontiac GTO, which is recognized as the first true Musclecar. With an advertising and marketing campaign stating the facts, the midsize Pontiac Tempest/LeMans could be optioned with the GTO package, featuring a 389ci Tri-power (3-dual carburetors) engine, dual exhaust and hood scoops. Pictured here is a ’65 model and its 2005 offspring.
