Available for auction is this 1965 Pontiac LeMans Convertible finished in blue over a parchment interior. This 1965 example was acquired by the seller in 2008 and subsequently treated to a frame-off restoration in 2019 including new paint and an upgraded drivetrain from a 1970 GTO. It is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Louisiana having covered less than 500 miles since its restoration.
The seller reports that the entire car was refinished during the restoration and all chrome trim and badges were either polished or replated. A small scratch has been noted on the driver’s side near the trunk; detailed images can be found in the gallery. Features include dual side mirrors, GTO badging, chrome bumpers, chrome exhaust splitters, and chrome dressed in BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.
The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench trimmed in parchment vinyl with matching door panels and contrasting carpets. Amenities include a three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel, a power antenna, hand-crank side windows, and a full-length center console. The seller confirms that all gauges, electronics, and accessories are functional.
The drivetrain was sourced from a 1970 Pontiac GTO and includes a 400ci V8 driving the rear wheels by way of a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. The rear end was also derived from a 1970 GTO. As part of the GTO package, the Tempest received stiffer springs, larger sway bars, and heavy-duty shocks.
This sale will include a spare tire and a clean title.
