Pontiac Lemans Sport Coupe
I was recently able to pick up an all original 1976 Pontiac Lemans Sport Coupe similar to one I owned back in 1976. I have been looking for another classic car to go with my 1969 Mercury Cougar but was struggling to find one with louvered windows that did not need a lot of work.
I originally saw this car being hauled into Kelowna on a flat bed about four years ago and I was not able to track it down. The next time I saw the car it was sitting at Junk Yard Dog in West Kelowna in the fall of 2008. I checked it out in the spring and was impressed with the condition.
Since I’d seen the car it had been sold and then in a fender bender. It ended up as an insurance write off and was purchase by a garage. They fixed the fender and repainted the car gloss black.
When I looked at the car in 2008 I did a magnet test and realized it was all metal. The car started at a price that I could not afford. The car continued to drop in price and when it hit my range I picked it up.
This is a 2011 winter project and will be on the road come the spring.
It has the following:
350 4-barrell, Power, Windows, Doors, Locks, Cruise Control, and Air Conditioning
