1963 Pontiac LeMans convertible
Beauty! This blue color was common at the time..most manufacturers offered a version of it! Notice the character creases in the rear quarter and the trim that accentuates the fenders. Some versions of the car had the 326 c.i. engine as this one does..others had a V8 engine essentially cut in half and offered as a four cylinder model (195 c.i.). The transmission was aft, and a flexible driveline connected it to the engine. A good example of how engineering experimentation was alive and well at GM during this period.
1963 Pontiac LeMans Rare 4 Cylinder Four Barrel Four-speed 3.73 Posi - Half of a 389 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1963 Pontiac LeMans. It's powered by a 194.5 Cubic Inch 45 Degree Four Cylinder, topped with a 4 BBL Carb, and running through dual Exhaust. Pontiac, basically cut a 389 V8 in half...in fact, it uses the same head as the 389 and the 421. In this case, the four cylinder is backed by a four-speed manual and a set of 3.73 Gears with Posi. As you can see, it really is a great looking car and would look right at home on the dragstrip in the 1960's. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
