SUPERCLEAN SOUTHERN LE MANS, 326 V8, AUTO, FLOWMASTER DUALS, PS, PB, GOOD DOCS
Yes, that's right, you're looking at a 1964 Pontiac Lemans that still wears Lemans badges and not fake GTO gear. It's also nicely finished, offers a strong-running 326 cubic inch V8, and a very authentic look that will make Pontiac purists smile.
This LeMans is so authentic, it wears its original combination of Cameo Ivory over Saddle Bronze (code SC), a paint job that was applied about 20 years ago and still looks pretty darned impressive. The top is painted, not a padded vinyl roof, but the look is clean and simple on the angular Lemans bodywork and aside from some light orange peel on the C-pillars, the finish looks fantastic. There's an appropriate gloss that is straight out of the 1960s and despite being driven regularly, there are no major signs of use. In fact, it's pretty clear that someone took exceptional care of this car, despite it being an affordable Lemans instead of a high-dollar GTO. The other styling cues are the same, from the split grille to the well-sculpted quarters to the taillights, which are rumored to have been the most expensive ever made. This car also has some pretty darned nice chrome, including the bumpers and window trim, and even the '326' emblems on the front fenders, which it wears proudly.
It's possible that many of the components inside the car are original, and while some things are showing their age, we wouldn't change a thing. The bucket seats are nicely broken-in while the back seat almost looks new, and we dig the low-key look of black and gold inside this car. There are no rips or tears in the upholstery, the carpet is in good shape with just some light fading, and that gold steering wheel looks fantastic. Factory gauges monitor the vitals and they didn't feel the need to add any aftermarket dials under the dash and even the original AM radio is still in place. Door panels are excellent and even the dome light still works! The trunk is outfitted with a brand new mat and spare tire cover, plus a full-sized spare and jack assembly for a very correct look.
Pontiac's 326 cubic inch V8 was no slouch in the performance department and with a rebuild about 15 years ago, it still runs great. It's got an .030 overbore but is otherwise stock, so it runs and drives like it should and looks right with corporate turquoise engine paint and a stock style air cleaner up top. Power steering was added when the car was restored, and that makes a big difference in drivability, and with dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers, it sounds very GTO-like. The transmission is a PowerGlide 2-speed automatic feeding the original rear end, which hangs on a set of air shocks to help balance the ride. Experts will note it does have GTO exhaust tips, but otherwise it's quite stock. The front suspension has been rebuilt, the floors are in great condition, and it drives superbly overall. Factory steel wheels with hubcaps are fitted with new 205/75/14 redline radials that give it the perfect look.
Documented with PHS documents, including a reproduction build sheet, plus a stack of restoration receipts, this is a great Lemans that's always been a favorite car. Forget fake GTOs, a real Lemans definitely delivers fun. Call now!
