Description:

1978 Pontiac Le Mans

I bought from original owner. Car never seen snow. Sat in garage since 1989. Clear Indiana title in my name registered and plated. All items and build are new and completed during the past 3 years. Chassis work was done by Randy Craig in New Buffalo Michigan on Jig approximately 8 years ago. He was one of the best in the area. He has since retired. His quality is outstanding. 360 SBC, bolt main, ll ARP, agle rotating assembly, delbrock 64cc heads, ictor Jr. air gap intake, 50 Proform Race carburetor, ll MSD Ignition, unati Drag Race camshaft part # 30120919 3,800 to 7,200 RPM, 92 int./302 exh, .550 int./0.571 exh, ooker headers, o have Purple Hornie muffler for street use, stimated 500 HP however not on dyno, ased off of Hot Rod, ar Craft articles, nd other professional references.

Right rear tailamp is repaired will need replaced or repaired. I have three others to pull parts from for repair. Car is street strip, uns consistent 11.70's, ith me cutting not so good reaction times, ar has been used very little and 17 race passes. There are so many new high quality - high performance parts and items I have not listed. Only the best. This car runs and drives great and straight on the street. The suspension is dialed in and launches straight on the strip as you can see in the video. The car is ready for paint. Will need minor sanding priming, et sanding. Panel alignment is really good – a lot of spent of doors and fender alignment. Car is not perfect as pictures can be deceiving. However this car is in what I call great shape. It is a quality build with a lot of time spent with attention to detail and planing the build. The rear inside deck and wheel tubes carpet are only glued to the deck and draped over the wheel tubes. I do have a complete floor carpet set. No custom carpet for rear area. Black paint is pealing off of fuel cell. Fuel gauge is not hooked up, eeded isolator. Missing passenger seat cover. Im trying to be honest as can be. Feel free to ask questions. You can view videos on You Tube - Chris DeLee - for recent videos.

As I stated pictures can be deceiving, hese show the cars primer better than it is. This is primer sealer not paint, at rod, r flat matte color. It does look good from 10 foot but up close you can tell its primer - no sheen - its dull, tc. Engine has Scorpion roller 1.7 rockers and stud girdle.I will add items as I think of them.I can also be reached at 219-363-9472 leave message or text. I will respond within timely manner.

To answer these questions I will provide the back ground. The car was for sale 2 ways - roller or with engine and trans. Engine was a MK lV 565ci 1,400hp Aluminum head, heet metal intake, win dominators, orted 2 stage nitrous engine with powerglide. ($17,000) I bought as a roller. Prior owner spared no expense on building the chassis. His goal was to run 9 seconds but streetable. This also explains why the wheel tubs are not massive in height. He planned on building a one seat area in back for his son.
