I have a guy that has a 69 Tempest Deck Lid. Does anyone know if this will fit the GTO?
What is the difference in the Tempest and LeMans / GTO?
The short answer is yes a deck lid from a 1969 Tempest will fit a GTO. Physically, there is little to no difference between a GTO and a Tempest. The main difference of course is the engine, where a GTO had a 400 V8 while a Tempest had a 350 V8. The GTO had a rubber like (called endura) front bumper while the Tempest had a chrome metal front bumper. Other than that it is essentially minor cosmetic differences between the two.
