1972 Pontiac LeMans Sport - Test drive
I pick out this 72 Lemans for a friend of mine in Norway. He wanted to take
a 3 week American Holiday Cruise with his family in California, Nevada and
Arizona.. I had less than a month to find a decent "collector car" that
would not fail him out on this vacation drive in June. I found this car
that had been pretty well cared for and freshened up by the ASE Certified
Mechanic owner. The Pontiac 350 has been replaced with a Chevy 350. It has
headers, Flowmaster Exhaust, recent
interior, vinyl top and all new weatherstrips. It did GREAT on the tour!
Now it is For Sale, but if not sold will be shipped to my guy in Norway. If
you are interested in buying the car for 8500, hurry-- If it is to be
shipped over, I need to do it in the next couple months.

72 Pontiac LeMans
My brother and sister inlaw making the video for me
This is still a work in progress. I still need to do the dash cover and
front, i need to install a different fuel pump (the one i have now is way
too loud), need to fit a rear valance, adjust the Exhaust tips, get bigger wheels ang install posi
traction. ...i think thats all.
I took out the original engine and installed a 406 chevy small block with
460HP with an R6 tranny. New carpet and re-upholstered leather seats and
Installed new gauges

PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
Tony Bromley's 400 to 460 stroke Pontiac Dyno Pull | QMP Racing
550 torque @ 5800rpm
535hp @ 4000rpm
For those of you paying attention and noticed the numbers aren't the same
on the screenshot, its because we made another few runs, but didn't tape
them. We'll upload a pic soon.
