Question Tempest 195 HotRod?

Hey All,
I am in the gathering info stage of my first project: a 1961 Pontiac Tempest with rear trans. I hope to change to a standard 4 speed like in a GTO. The 195 ia a 389 V8 cut longways to a L4, basicly the right side of the V. My questions are this: What is the transmission that came with the Pontiac 389 and can this be used on a 195?
This is my first project, any and all replys, comments and/or criticism is helpfull.
Thanks in advance,
Michael <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

If you haven't already, you might try <a href="http://www.poci.org" target="_blank">www.poci.org</a> or <a href="http://www.classicalpontiac.com" target="_blank">www.classicalpontiac.com</a> or search the web links on those sites for people interested in these engines. I found a web site devoted to the Pontiac OHC 6cyl engine so there could be one for the slant 4. The transaxle on those Tempests is similar to the Corvair's so a Corvair 4 speed might be a possibility. Early Tempest experts would be able to help on that. Good luck, and don't let the V8 lemmings make you switch! P.S. I REALLY like your disclaimer!!!!

My first car in 1968 was a '63 Tempest 4cyl/4bbl & powerslide! Cousin put high-comp 389 pistons & cam out of his junk motor in it & it ran real good until I sent a piston thru the hood!! Welded the hole in the block shut and drove it on 3 cylinders for another 2 months .... hehe -&gt; saw one in a T-bucket not too long ago that looked good

THE TEMPEST 4 BANGER IS REALLY A 389 BLOCK MISSING ONE CYLINDER BANK SO EVERY THING OFF THE V-8 WILL BOLT RIGHT UP(FLYWHEEL,BELLHOUSING--THE BALL OF WAX). THE PRFORMANCE PISTONS,CAM AND THE AFTER MARKET ALUMINUM HEADS FOR THE V-8 BOLT ON.THE MOTOR IS A CROSSFLOW DESIGN AND WILL MAKE ALL KINDS OF HORSE POWER. IF I CAN FIND THEM(NO PROMISES)I WILL SCAN IN SOME PICTURES AND THE SLIPS OF ONE OF THESE IN ACTION THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!!
