Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, United States

1966 Pontiac LeMans

Engine/ Drivetrain: Original 326 engine was recently replaced with a factory correct 326 from a 1967 Lemans. Engine was reported to have driven 77K miles and still runs good, car was recently driven around with out incident or concern. Engine is equipped with an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, Edelbrock 4 Barrel 650 cfm Carburetor, and high output exhaust manifolds with functional side pipes. Original transmission shifts and drives as should with a minor leak near rear of trans. Transmission leak can only be seen after sitting for long periods of time when residue was seen on asphalt. Original radiator has been replaced with an oversized 4-row radiator. Also, distributor has been upgraded to a MSD. As original gauges begun to show signs of wear, aftermarket oil pressure and coolant temp gauges were installed along with an auto meter tachometer. 

Exterior/ Interior:  Body is sold with very minor spots of rust in driver side door well and small spots near hood hinges. Small spots of surface rust can be seen in trunk bed, however trunk was replaced several years ago and still remains solid. Frame rails and body panels are solid as seen in attached pictures. All windows roll up and down as should. Car was repainted several years ago. Carpet and particular trim pieces have been replaced. Particular pieces of weather stripping and interior panel dressing has begun to come loose and should be replaced. Seats/ replaced headliner show some signs of wear as some tears/ holes can be seen. Also, vinyl roof has been replaced and is in good condition. Wheels have also been replaced with Cragar rims. Tires still remain with lots of tread left.

Brakes: 4- Wheel drum brakes. 

Areas to be addressed: As car was recently driven it was found to be lacking in normal braking ability. The wheel cylinders have begun seeping and vehicle pulls to the right when coming to a stop.  Car can be driven and stops, but will require further inspection and brake  service to pass inspection which recently expired a month ago. Paint is overall good condition with one of two small scratches. Dent in hood can be seen in attached picture when an incorrectly installed air cleaner hit underside when closed. Not that noticeable but being honest. 

Car was purchased used 13 years ago and has been garaged kept and maintained away from snow/ rain. Car has been lightly driven in parades/ cruise nights. No long distance driving has really been done but car turns heads and is a joy to drive. Only selling because of new interests and needs for garage space. 

All sales are final and buyer assumes responsibility for shipping/ pick- up costs and arrangements.    Thanks - Don

Lutz says GM was working on 5th-gen Pontiac GTO

Thu, 08 Aug 2013

Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.
In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.

GM recalling over 40,000 Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn models over fuel pump woes

Mon, 01 Oct 2012

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.

GM recalling another 1.3-million cars over power steering woes

Mon, 31 Mar 2014

When it rains, it pours. General Motors has announced yet another major recall, covering 1.3 million units in the American market over concerns that the power steering could suddenly fail. As reported by The Detroit News' David Shepardson, GM has now recalled nearly ten times as many cars as it did all of last year.
It's important to note that should this problem arise in these cars, the steering won't fail completely, however, power steering could suddenly stop functioning. Manual steering would still be possible, but as GM says, there's an increased risk of accidents, particularly at lower speeds.
Like the ignition switch recall, this latest problem covers a wide range of vehicles from Chevrolet, Saturn and Pontiac. Normally, we'd give you the full rundown in paragraph form, but the variety of models and model years means a list is just easier. So, have a look, directly from GM's press release:
