1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport
1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport
While the Pontiac GTO gets all the accolades and high selling prices to go along with the hoopla, truth be told, its sibling, the LeMans is basically the same car. The LeMans is a great alternative to spending tens of thousands on a GTO, as both cars share the same sheet metal, interior components and most mechanical parts. The 1968 to 1972 LeMans models are among the best-looking Pontiacs ever manufactured and are quite plentiful, with nearly 673,000 built. Finding parts is easy due to a huge supply of parts cars and a strong aftermarket.
For consignment, the more affordable LeMans Sport from 1970. This particular car has a GM crate engine at a consigner stated 358ci, Keystone Classic wheels, and a GTO spoiler. Can you say screaming yellow zonker?!
Bathed in yellow which covers laser straight steel panels with awesomely minded gaps everything about this car is straight and true. Bumpers and all chrome are the beneficiary of careful caring through time. Above the front bumper is a split grille which has the Pontiac beak and that is flanked by dual headlights with shiny bezels. That split grille and beak is mimicked by a chrome encircled grille. To the rear and we see inset taillights in the back bumper, more straight steel for the rear quarters and trunk lid. Roofline has a beautiful tapered descent from the roof to the trunk lid and clean trimmed glass between. Correct 15 x 7 inch Keystone Klassic cloverleaf machined shiny wheels are all around and these are wrapped by BF Goodrich raised white letter radial T/A's.
Moving to the interior which is covered in blue vinyl from the door panels to the seats, which are buckets with adjustable headrests in front and a long and clean rear bench. These nicely preserved seats are floating in a sea of blue unfaded carpet and have black rubber Pontiac floor mats protecting the front. The dash is all original and presents in blue padding with some wood appliqué for the deep inset gauge cluster. Fronting this beautiful dash is a correct formula steering wheel which has a wood rim. An aftermarket Sony AM/FM/CD/MP3 player is neatly inserted into a horizontal machined spun aluminum pattern trim strip. In the center a T bar B&M shift is mounted and has a rubber tiered boot between the lever and the hump. Just in front of this is a trio of aftermarket gauges mounted into a shiny cutout. Blue vinyl is tight and creates the headliner.
As the consigner states 385 cubes of Chevrolet V8 are under this hood. Aftermarket aluminum heads are affixed and have Edelbrock valve covers. An Edelbrock intake is on and is topped by a single 4bbl carb. On the back a 700R4 4-speed automatic is seen and a 10-bolt rear axle.
Barely a hint of rust to be seen all black shiny steel that is structurally sound and not even spattered with road dirt. A clean exhaust snakes its way rearward, passing independent coil springs up front, and a 4 link with coil springs on the rear. There are Magnaflow stainless mufflers which are mounted on the floorboards and have a short pipe exit at their rears. Power disc brakes are on the front and power drums bring up the rear.
A beautiful driver that started right up and handled our test track passing with flying colors. Good acceleration, nice cruising, and great brakes and we are all safe here.
A truly wonderful example of the LeMans Sport. Some extra Boyd Coddington Wheels, the original build sheet found under the rear seat, and a yellow GTO spoiler with some pinstriped flourish is included but not currently on the car. Get your “beak on”.
