Gto/tempest Difference?

I Was Told My A Gto Restorer That The Gto Body Was Different From The Tempest On The Lower Drivers Firewall Near The Frame. Is This True? Are There Any Other Differences? Thanks

The GTO shared the same body shell as the Tempest & LeMans. The firewall is not different.

I believe that the front fenders and front lower moldings are different to accomodate the GTO's enduro bumper and running lights. Other than that I believe they're the same.

That's correct - the GTO fender is different in the front where it interfaces with the GTO valance panel and the Endura bumper. The GTO also uses a sidemarker lamp in the forward side of the fender, not used by the Tempest/LeMans.
