Montego Cream 1967 Tempest Custom on a hauler. Pasquale commented, "I had recently moved to California and I had my 67 Tempest trailered from New Jersey to California. I called the driver everyday to find out which state he was in and the condition of my car." CLICK->
Pasquale added, "My wife said I was like a kid on Christmas morning jumping around the house when my car turned the corner on the truck." It cost him $600 to have the Tempest trailered from New Jersey to California. Pasquale continues, "It took a full
seven days but it was here in one piece. The company is called Western Distributors from Toms River, New Jersey. The phone number is (732) 557-4137. The company is family owned. The driver, owner, drives from the east coast to west coast every other week with a week to share with his family. His wife is the secretary when you call the company. I was very happy with the service and he took very good care of my car when I informed him it was in my family for thirty years. Thanks for the opportunity to show my interest with others." CLICK->

Montego Cream 1967 Tempest Custom at a car show in Central California. Pasquale adds, "She really enjoys the California weather rather than the New Jersey weather." It's parked right next to a green 1969 Grand Prix. That car wore the longest hood of any production car that year. The chrome door handles were cool. They were integrated into the doors to some degree. You had to push your thumb into the handle, then the rest of the handle would swivel out of the door into your hand. CLICK->

Pasquale tells us, "Here is a recent pic of my '67 Tempest Custom 'Royal Bobcat.' OK, I got the stickers from a close friend so I thought I'd put them on the front fender. I also installed a new 1 1/8 inch front sway bar with polyurethane bushings and new 350 trans three speed with a shift kit. The car can really smoke that 'one leg.' Posi rear is one of my next projects." CLICK->
Pasquale updates us on his 1967 Tempest Custom alterations since moving to California, "I replaced the two speed Powerglide transmission with a three speed 350 transmission and B&M shift kit. I put a rear Posi unit in it and replaced the Rally IIs with 15x8 and 15x7 Cragar wheels. Next projects will consist of little things then rebuild the original 326 cubic inch motor that has 205,000 original miles." Hey, there's a little kid at the wheel! CLICK->
