1971 Pontiac Le Mans FREE SHIPPING!1971 Pontiac Lemans Sport Convertible: The GM A-bodied cars grew and got heavier, too, from 1968. The LeMans and downscale Tempest versions retained the OHC sixes and optional Pontiac V8’s, which were now bored out to a GM-marketing standard 350 cubic inches. Yes, each division’s 350 cubic inch engine were their own in this era, and no parts interchanged. The top V8 for LeMans was a 320 hp version of Pontiac’s 350, except for station wagons. (Nobody at Pontiac apparently realized the potential of having a near-GTO performance wagon for families). Pontiac certainly covered all the other bases for performance in this era of straight line speed, though. By 1970, even the Tempest and Lemans could be had with Pontiac’s 400 cubic inch V8’s, with up to a 345 hp. Speed was king, and Pontiac was often on the top of the hill knocking off all comers. By 1971, a 455 cubic inch with 335 hp was optional, and the GTO was once again demoted to option status. Emissions equipment and lowered compression ratios started to take a toll on the engine power of all manufacturers, and insurance companies looking at huge losses incurred by youthful drivers in nearly 400 hp cars started to claw back losses by penalizing those most likely to have accidents with onerous rate increases. By 1972, the huge 455 Pontiac V8 could produce no more than 300 hp and the muscle car era was all but dead. In fact, Pontiac even dropped their OHC sixes and simply used Chevrolet OHV sixes for those few customers who wanted a six in their LeMans. Any of the LeMans cars from this era are highly collectible, whether or not they are cloned GTO’s.
This beautiful Castilian Bronze Lemans is a great example from the collection of a local Texan who has some of the nicest 60's & 70's convertibles you can find. We've been fortunate to have had several exceptional classics grace our showroom over the years. With regards to paint, this Pontiac has one of the most spectacular paint jobs we have ever seen! The photos don't even do it justice. Before making it's way to TX, this Lemans Sport spent several years on display in a PA Pontiac dealership's showroom. It arrived in TX with a straight body, zero rust, and strong original paint job. "Strong" just wasn't good enough for the TX owner so he commissioned the repaint in the original colors and photo documented the paint work. The engine bay, trunk, and interior are all equally as impressive. The second major highlight of this beauty is that it still retains the numbers matching 400 V8 (4bbl) and Automatic Transmission it had from new. This was a rare find in a '71 Lemans Sport and combined with the Endura Front End and Painted Sport Mirrors give this Lemans some strong GTO characteristics. Additional features and options on this Lemans that haven't already been mentioned include; Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Top, Convertible Boot, Factory AM/FM Radio, Chrome Rear Bumper, Soft Ray Tinted Glass, Center Console Storage, Rubber Floormats, Owners Manual, Protect-O-Plate, Full Spare w/Cover, Tire Tools, 15" Factory Honeycomb Wheels, and thick Firestone Wideoval Super Sport G70-15 Tires! As you will see in the photos below, this is an exceptional classic Pontiac that can be purchased for only $29,988!
