This is a 1975 Pontiac LeMans Sport Coupe. Painted Kandy Magenta from House of Kolor Paints. Black on black interior is extremely nice with no tears or cracks. It has a 455 Pontiac engine, block code YW, bored .060 over, 5C heads that have been milled and professionally ported, double valve springs, 1.65 ratio Scorpion roller rocker arms, 292 Isky cam, Hedman headers, chrome Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, new 800 Quadrajet carb. 1969 aluminum Powerglide transmission with a manual valve body and 2,800 Boss Hog converter. Since you cannot put a posi in the corporate rear end these cars came with, I put in a rear end from a 1971 Chevelle and installed a new Auburn Posi with 4:10 Richmond Gears.
The heads have been milled, so the compression is a bit higher than stock 5C heads; however, the car runs great on premium gas and really great on AV fuel. I originally built this car to race, but I never raced it and the car got parked for several years as my life got busy. During the covid years, with everyone bringing their old cars out, I got back into the car and redid the interior, which is extremely nice, and I also de-tuned the car a little to make it streetable. I replaced a tunnel ram and Holleys with the Edelbrock and Quadrajet, and put a lower stall Boss Hog converter in. During this time, I also replaced all of the rubber gas lines, belts, radiator and heater hoses, vacuum lines and the power steering lines. The car is very easy to drive on the street but will definitely have you hanging on for mercy if you put her to the floor.
Couple of minor flaws with the car: this one kills me because I did it; I was pushing the car back into my shop when it hit the side of my tool box. It has two dimples in the paint on the rear quarter panel on the driver’s side, about the size of your pinky nail, which can be seen in the very last picture. I had a body guy look at it and he said he could fix it 90% or better paintless, or he could fix it 100% by filler and matching the paint. At the time I had just removed the tunnel ram and was considering putting the uncut hood on and having him paint and fix both at the same time. Obviously I went with the shaker hood. The uncut hood is from a 1973 GTO and is rough but goes with the car if you want it. The other issue is the gas gauge; it works but is not accurate and even with a full tank it says you are almost empty.
I’ve owned this car for 38 years, and I’ve taken it as far as I can take it. I would love that this car goes to someone who is going to race it, put it in car shows or just drive it. My reserve is low (I think, anyway), and any questions please call or text me at (406)939-5822. I have a video of it running, and I see some people can post that in the add but I can’t figure it out. I can send it to you though. Clear Montana title.
