1979 Pontiac Le MansUp for auction today is this 79 Pontiac Lemans
(Not a Grand LeMans or base coupe..Just a coupe)
I am not a dealer, ut rather a hobbyist and enthusiast, s are many of you.
If you have any questions at the bottom of this section, lease write me and ask them.
I acquired this car about four years ago from a friend who had intended on making it a drag racing only vehicle.
Originally a 231 Buick V6 car, t came to me as a rolle, ith no engine or transmission.
I intended to install either a Pontiac 400 or 455 engine, ut planned on making it back into a street legal performance car, owever I came across a good running Pontiac 301 2 bbl. out of a 79 Bonneville.
I had a valve job done on the heads, lthough it didn't appear to need it. I also replaced the timing chain and most of the original gaskets and seals. It still has the original camshaft, nd the engine starts and idles normally.
I added a four barrel intake and a 1972 750 Qjet and a dual 2 and 1/2 inch full exhaust system with chambered mufflers, xiting the engine through stock factory exhaust manifolds.
For the transmission, chose to use a 200 4 R overdrive unit, ith a 13" D5 2050 stall, ock up converter. The trans is supported by a custom fabricated cross member.
After installed the 301, elected to make more of a highway cruiser out of this car, o I installed a Positraction unit with a set of 3.08 gears. Incidentall, t has 215/75 rear tires, nd it will cruise down the highway, 0 mph, n 4th gear lock u, at 2200 RPM!
Details, ront to back:
78 Trans Am radiator, ual factory type electric fans with adjustable controller.
Power steering, ower brakes.
15 x 7 Pontiac Rally II wheels all around.
O'Reilly sourced AM/FM/CD/USB radio in dash with your basic 6 x 9 speakers. Nothing fancy, ut it sounds fine.
Carpeted trunk with mini spar, cissors jack, ug wrench and wheel lock key.
Rear suspension has air shocks with no-hop bars installed, ith the anticipation of a larger engine one day.
This a very straight, riginal paint, RUST FREE, un Cit, z. vehicle, owever it does have a few minor dings on the sides and hood. The worst of all can be seen in the picture, n the hood. There is a very slight dent below the left quarter window. It doesn't even show in the picture. What you're seeing is actually touch up paint where the bump strip was.
The front nose piece has some cracks in it, nd that is the trade-off out here for a rust free car. My plan was to replace it with an 81 nose section from a northern car, hich will bolt right on. I prefer the look of the 81 piece.
A good body man could have this car ready for primer in one day. I could do it in two days mysel, nd I take my time with body work.
The car does look okay as is, rom about ten feet, f you're into that patina-e, eater/ daily driver/ sleeper thing.
No accidents or frame damage.
What it needs:
Besides the paint, t needs to have the back seat rebuilt to match the front, lso a headliner panel with fabric, hich is the same as a Malibu, nd readily available. Also the rubber around the side windows and doors. Again, ame as the Malibu.
New carpet was installed last year.
What it doesn't have:
The previous owner had removed the heater/ AC box, ontrols, nd ducting, o it has none of the above. I have a complete wiper set up for the car, nd it will go with it, ree of charge.
Also, ome of the A/C brackets and pulleys are on the engine, nd I have some of the hoses, lus a long compresso, ood for a core only, hat will go with the car.. Also some misc. trim and dashboard pieces.
Now for the disclaimer:
First of al, this car is probably NOT emission or safety compliant in most states. It has NO catalytic converters, apor recover, ir pumps and who knows what else. PCV valve only. NO guard beams in the doors..Lap seat belt only, nd head rests. 5 mph bumper shocks are still intact.
Clean title, n my name, o go, nd registered here in Az. as a collector car, but as far as I know you intend to make a race only car out of it again. I do have two MT, 9.5 x 10.5 slicks on 15 x 7 rims, hat actually fit on the car, hat I'll ship with the car if you want them.
The mileage indicated is not correct, or relevant, s I have changed the engine, ransmission, nd rear end.
The extra parts included are free of charge, ot built into the total price. Maybe you can use them or maybe not. I have no control over that.
Buy it Now price includes free shipping, ia open carrier, o anywhere in the continental US. Enclosed carrier would be about $4-600 additiona, aid by the buyer.
$500 via Pay Pal, romptly at close of auction. At that point, will arrange the shipping.
Balance in full, n certified funds, ver- nighted to me on the day previous to the scheduled departure of vehicle.
I will sign, otariz, nd over night the title to you at that time, long with a Bill of Sale, f required.
Agai, any questions, o not hesitate to write to me here.
