According to Kelly's info, which is correct, yes. You can also contact Allied Vaughn by googling "gm media archives". For $50.00 you can get a copy of your car's specific factory to dealer invoice. HTH. -Jim

Yes. 1964-65 the GTO was an option on the Tempest LeMans. 1966-71 it was its own model with 242 VIN. 1972-74 it was an option again. Contact PHS Online with the VIN and get their report. It is the gold standard as anyone in POCI or GTOAA will tell you. Please ignore suggestions about getting one from any other vendor. Any real buyer will insist on PHS docs and will dismiss anything else.

Please ignore the Allied Vaughn nonsense. GM Media Archives only has Pontiac info from 1987 and later.
