1974 Pontiac LeMans GT red
I can't recall seeing a LeMans GT..but here one is..and it's for sale! I
really do like this style Pontiac....and this looks like it would perform
very well on the street! GTO was now almost history...the last year for
it, so this car helped bear the performance mantle for the division.
Performance plus luxury...a nice combination!
1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport
Just a quick video of me pulling my car out of the parking lot.. It's a
1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport with the original 350 engine, TH 350
transmission, and the original 10 bolt peg leg rear end. It has 81,000
original miles. It went through a frame off restoration recently in which
evrything was powder coated. It also sports a new paint job and a GTO hood.
It also has some not original stuff which includes a holley 600 cfm vacuum
secondary carburetor, edelbrock aluminum intake, and Pypes 2.5" stainless
steel x-pipes with low restriction mufflers. Unfortunately I'm missing the
rear Pontiac emblem on the trunk lid does anyone know where I can find one,
Ive tried year one and performance years but its not remade. The noise at
2:28 is because I hit the steering lock nothing serious. I didnt push on it
too hard because the powertrain is 40 years old and in really good shape
and I'd like it to last. This is not a trailer queen or a museum piece
thats never driven. I drive it as much as possible because its meant to be
enjoyed. If you like old muscle cars and would like to get into the hobby
the Lemans is still relatively inexpensive and can be dressed up to look
like a GTO. This car is my pride and joy and I hope to never sell it so
1973 PONTIAC LEMANS ON CHASSIS DYNO
HERE ARE A COUPLE OF PULLS ON THE CHASSIS Dyno. IT WAS LATER DISCOVERED
THAT WHEN THE CAR JUMPED THE ROLLERS IT BENT THE DRIVESHAFT. JUST ANOTHER
PART BROKEN TO ADD TO THE SCRAP PILE.
'86 Pontiac Acadian ( Chevette / T1000 ) Restoration
This car has an automatic trans, and the body is surprisingly good, not a
huge amount of bodywork was needed before painting. 134,000 K. on the odo.
No holes in the rockers, just a few in the floors, mostly near the sills.
The rear wheel well lips needed some TLC. I found someone on Kijji selling
Chevette parts, bought some stuff, including two sport mirrors, which are
now on the car. I painted it with Imron Elite Express, & then clear coated
I had this same model & year of car 20 years ago. My wife & I drove
it for 5 years, & then traded it in on something else, as it was getting a
bit rough. Had I rust proofed it, It would have lasted a lot longer - did
it ever rust badly the last year we had it! It had the 5 speed, which
helped a lot, as 65 hp isn't much motivation. I bought it with 87,000 k, &
it had 237,000 when we got rid of it. We drove it to NFLD, and to Edmonton.
Lots of gear changing in Northern Ontario! They were tough little cars, I
hope whoever has one takes good care of it, they're getting rare.
I drove this car strictly in the summers, & stored it in my garage for
the rest of the year.
Rare 1977 Pontiac Lemans Can Am - 6.6V8 Muscle Car
I thought you might like a look at this very rare 77 Pontiac Lemans Can Am.
Originally, Pontiac had planned to build nearly 5,000 of these cars, but
they ran into some problems with the mold that was used to make the
ducktail spoilers. Instead of fixing the issue, they decided to call a halt
to production. In the end, only 1377 Can Am's were built. They were packing
a 6.6L 400 cu in V8, a Heavy Duty TH400 trans, and the RTS Rally Suspension
Package. The horsepower wasn't amazing
due to the low compression used at this point, but for the late 70's it was
about as good as you could get. They are exceedingly rare and highly
collectible. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
