We don't get very many opportunities anymore at classics like this 1974 Pontiac LeMans. It's a cool V8 cruiser with a distinctly sleek style. So while the sightings are rare, the appeal is undeniable.
Pontiac took their time getting the four-gen LeMans to look imposing. The point of the front end expands its well-creased style through the hood and into the door line. The headlights are a bridge between the extended fenders and recessed grille. And the rear does a great job of having a .....
crisply sharp style while also giving you sleek lines. Oh yes, this coupe has style. Plus, they invested $1,040 in 2019 for a new black vinyl roof, and so it really showcases the now-iconic Colonnade roofline. It all makes for a stand-out appearance on a true classic. The stock bumpers, badges, wheel covers, and more all give a touch of time capsule style that gets this LeMans added respect.
Just like the exterior, it's highly stock inside, but there are some worthwhile investments. The headliner looks newer, and the front seat was reupholstered with a maroon insert to coordinate with the exterior. There's plenty of room to fit family and friends across two wide rows of classic bench seating. But it also makes sure to keep a true driver-oriented style with all the essential pieces within easy reach. This includes the classic gauges, upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning.
Under the hood is a true Pontiac 350 cubic-inch V8. It's even a year-correct block. And we love the Pontiac motor because they were built with a hardy kind of construction that the company adapted for large displacements and high output versions. So it makes for an honest look today and a ton of potential for tomorrow. And because a LeMans is also a proper cruising classic, this comes with features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
Complete with the owner's manual, this car represents a great opportunity. We see so few LeMans coupes from this era at the shows, and so you can roll out of the showroom and be distinct at the next Cars & Coffee. And the value price leaves room in your budget to restore/personalize when you feel like it. So you can really work on unlocking an outstanding shine out of the newer paint, restoring the air conditioning, or doing other detail upgrades. And because this has hardy GM underpinnings you know, we bet there are many of you thinking about unleashing a powerful motor tune-up or swap. This LeMans is fun on day one and has a ton of potential for tomorrow. So don't miss out, call today!!!
