Mileage: I believe the mileage on the car to be accurate in the vicinity of 103K. The original speedometer mileage reads approximately 95K (included with sale), nd since switching the gauge cluster, only accumulated about 8000 miles since owning it. I did not have the odometer of new cluster changed for accuracy, o please be aware of that. I want to be straight forward & honest so there are no surpises.
The LeMans was the sister car to the very popular Chevy Malibu. The late 70's/early 80's Malibu's are extremely popular for restoration as well as racing. I always liked the idea of having the lesser known (but equally capable) LeMans instead of the Malibu. It is considerably more rare than all the Malibu's of this generation. People are always telling me they never see these on the road anymore and that they love how I "muscularized" it. It is certainly most unique.
