1967 Pontiac Le MansThis auction is for my numbers matching 1967 Pontiac Le mans. My mother bought this car brand new from Epperly Pontiac in Christiansburg Virginia in March 1967 and was titled to my father upon her passing away, then gifted/titled to me, her son. I actually came home from the hospital in this car when I was born! I have the original manual, warranty booklet with embossed stamp plates, and some of the original paperwork. It has not been restored, cloned into a GTO, or otherwise altered. I know a true Pontiac aficionado will appreciate this unique original much more than I will ever realize as it is a unique chance to own a numbers matching, pre-restoration Le Mans.
The engine is original and as an early January 1967 production run, has the matching engine YN code stamped on the block which matches the original paperwork and embossed plates in the warranty booklet. From all the casting dates I can find on the engine and surrounding parts, everything was made within a few days of each other in January 1967. My father also tells me that while normal engine work was completed throughout the Pontiac's lifetime, the engine was never replaced and remained original. As far as I can tell by block codes, intake castings, and my family's memory, this is a true numbers matching car. I am happy to provide pictures of the casting marks if interested as this does add value to the right buyer.
I have some additional parts - like 3 (likely some replaced originals) PMD hubcaps (they seemed to fall off too often and thus the mag wheels currently on the Pontiac), jack and tire iron, spare trunk tension rod, 2 wiper arms, and a thin temporary spare that was acquired through a salvage yard (unknown if it fits, never used it). The Pontiac does not come with a battery. I also have the original steel rims that the PMD hubcaps fit, at least I believe, they have not been used since the mag wheels were put on and I have never personally tried mounting tires on them to see them fit on the Pontiac. Regardless, I will include them with the sale. The rear has air adjustable shocks with a standard shrader valve (like your tires have) located on the frame member, just behind the rear license plate area. This adjusts the level of the back end if needed or you like a higher back end look. The tires currently on it are lower profile than stock, have all the tread left (bought when up on jack stands), but are older in years (not sure if tires age).
So what are the defects/work done to the Pontiac? I know the driver's side door had another car slowly back into it while parked and required some door dent work and paint, the trunk floor had a new floor plate welded in when I was little (maybe in the 1970's?), the driver's side lower rear quarter panel had some work done as seen by crack behind tire (thought to have been fixed when trunk pan was replaced) plus a section replaced behind the passenger side front wheel (as seen by line in paint), and the passenger side lower rear chrome trim plate came loose during a blown tire event in the late 1990's. It shows some typical dings and scratches from 50 years of life (30 years driven + 20 years wheels off, sitting on jack stands in garage) along the sides and bumpers, however, it has never been in a major accident, flood, or other nasty event. The underside is greasy and dirty from decades of road usage and there is one spot behind the drivers side wheel that has a corrosion hole where the metal is thinner. The paint is the second coat of paint on the vehicle with the original paint under the current coat. Both were the original mariner turquoise. I pulled the carb, intake, and heads off the engine to paint them almost 20 years ago, then replaced the head gaskets (plus all the other upper end engine gaskets). The exhaust pipes were bad and short pipes plus temporary mufflers were placed on to keep the noise down when I started the engine and let it run occasionally while not being driven. The exhaust currently terminates midway back and is not a permanent solution. The rear windows and back glass were tinted in 1992-1993 but can be removed with solvent. The back speaker deck was replaced and 2 plate speakers were installed in place of the old, dry-rotted speakers. The interior has the original vinyl seats but most have experienced splitting and were covered by seat covers (again, in the 90's). The passenger side dash cap has a crack in the top and the heating levers don't slide all the way right. The carpet is original and I recently put in some black floor mats. I recently added an inline fuel filter at the fuel tank to keep the carb clean during running events. I also know the distributor, alternator, drum brake wheel cylinders, and other minor "wear" components have been replaced throughout the years. I just put a new starter on it a few months ago. If you want any other clarification on condition or parts, please let me know. My father's memory is really good at this and he can fill in where I cannot. Beyond this, the car was kept as original as possible (parents did not like change) and makes a unique candidate for restoration due to the matching numbers and condition.
Currently, the Pontiac starts fine (with external battery source, not included) and is drives. However, since it has only sat on jack stands with the wheels off and upper engine apart, it has not been registered with the DMV since 1998 (still have those stickers on the windshield). That means I cannot legally test drive it beyond my driveway on public roads. Before I realized this, I did make sure it shifts through the gears, reverses, and drives as I remembered back in 1998 when it was registered for road usage. It drove fine that glorious sunny day which was earlier this summer and the last drive it will make before finding its new owner. I am sure the carb could be tuned better as I wasn't able to do extensive road testing before I realized it needs registering for road use. It was great to drive it one last time, but time to let go.
So if you are excited by a numbers matching 1967 Pontiac Le Mans that has not been restored, doesn't look like it came out of a junkyard, and has a lot of the original papers - this might be the "find" you have been waiting for.
