1963 Pontiac Lemans

title status:clean

The product of a professional, ground-up restoration, this Poncho backs 400 cubic inches of Pontiac V8 with 1963 421 heads - an upgraded suspension, a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed and all the glory of an open-air driving experience. Once those surfaces were prepped and carefully aligned, House Of Kolor Tangerine Kandy 2-stage was dashed in Hot Rod Black and detailed with Charcoal outlining stripes. And today, this sweet Y-Body can be summed up as audacious, intense and flat out wicked! At the front of the car, amber parking lamps light a mirrored bumper, which frames one of the first applications of the brand's iconic split grille. That fully re-chromed grille, balancing halogen headlights opposite traditional Pontiac and 421 badges, points to a convex hood that's finished with an open scoop. Behind that stainless-trimmed scoop, a classy factory mirror reflects stainless-trimmed glass that's cleared by polished wipers and capped in black canvas. Opposite that canvas, a tidy hull founds factory door handles between monochromatic arrowheads, tasteful “LeMans” emblems and bright rocker spears. And at the back of the car, subtle fins lead the eye into a stainless-trimmed valance, which balances bright taillights and a third “LeMans” script between a second mirrored bumper, more 421 badging and small reverse lamps.
Pop the hood and you'll find a fully rebuilt Pontiac 400, with a Holley Sniper EFI system, MSD Hyperspark Distributor and Coil. Cast exhaust manifolds make quick work of spent gases. In front of those tubes, fresh V-belts spin an Edelbrock water pump beside a heavy duty alternator.Crawl under this Y-Body and you'll find a freshly rebuilt chassis that's characterized by a great stance. The car's drivability is greatly enhanced by a smooth Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed, which twists a familiar 10-bolt axle. That axle pushes a reimagined rear-clip, which frames tubular control arms with a beefy sway bar. Opposite that clip, a modified front-half hangs modern rack-and-pinion steering behind a second beefy sway bar. Stops are provided by four power-assisted calipers, which squeeze aggressive race pads around drilled and slotted rotors. Exhaust rolls through rowdy FLO-PRO mufflers. And momentum comes courtesy of tough Hurst wheels, which wear 255/45ZR17 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports. Open the doors and a crisp vinyl interior remains just the way the factory planned it. The first thing you'll notice is a duo of thick bench seats, split in the front, that seem like a great place to grab some wind-infused sun. True to Pontiac fashion, a tasteful dash frames stylish Auto Meter telemetry in an engine-turned instrument panel. Beneath that dash, fresh carpet anchors a long Lokar shifter between LeMans-themed floor mats. In front of the driver, a factory steering wheel laps a standard column. And behind the passengers, a matted trunk hides an Optima yellow-top battery.
