The Pontiac GT-37 is an example of rare American muscle. Based on the Tempest (1970) and LeMans (1971 T-37, it was basically an engine and appearance upgrade package. Marketed as a "poor-man's GTO", with taglines such as "There's a little GTO in every GT-37, and you don't have to be over 30 to afford it," the GT-37 delivered power and looks at a bargain price. Basically a stripped-down GTO, the GT-37 could be compared to other inexpensive "bare-bones" musclecars like the Plymouth Road Runner.
Available engines for the GT-37 were the 350ci 2bbl., a 400ci 4bbl, and the stump-pulling 455ci 4bbl. with a TH400 transmission. There are manual transmission cars out there as well.
Decals varied between the years, ranging from '69 "Judge" style stripes in '70, to a unique sweeping decal in '71. Other options that could be found on the GT-37 were Rallye II wheels, white letter tires, dual exhaust with chrome tips, GT-37 emblems, and hood pins.
