The car that you see here was produced in 1964 on the A-platform, and it is a metallic blue coupe. At first sight, it was difficult to understand whether it sports a new paintjob or not. However, considering it spent a lot of time in a museum, it might be original. Moreover, it has some scratches here and there and some touch-up paint chips.
But Pontiac offered the LeMans coupe with a choice of engines, starting with a mundane 215 cu-in (3.5-liter) inline-six and ending up in the GTO variety, with the mighty 389 three two-barrels that produced 358 hp (353 PS). But this example features the least powerful version of the LeMans lineup. Moreover, it is paired to a two-speed automatic transmission, so you can't expect to be a quarter-mile sensation.
Some might wonder if this car can do a burnout. However, it should be able to get a squeak out its new tires, especially since the engine looks pristine and the odometer shows just a mere 15,300 miles (24,600 km). Actually, the entire vehicle looks like it was either meticulously restored, or kept in a controlled environment, such as a museum. Oh, wait...
The cabin is fitted with tan vinyl upholstery, including lower-door carpeting. Worth noticing that everything on the car works as it should. After all, apart from the manufacturing year, it's almost a new vehicle. The Fp427 seller purchased the vehicle from a museum in November 2021, and, after they put a few hundred miles in it, they are selling it at no reserve. Sure, we might expect to see a bidding war toward the end of the auction, which will be on July 21st. Until then, you might book a trip to Hubbard, Ohio, and see this LeMans in person. At the end of the day, this car is about driving smoothly an All-American classic vehicle and enjoying the ride, not the performance.
