1966 Pontiac LeMans
This 1966 LeMans is an absolute work of art! It's powered by a 326ci V8 and
a Powerglide automatic transmission. It has power steering and power
brakes, chrome valve covers and air cleaner, HEI ignition, MSD wires, and a
new aluminum radiator! It has brand new upholstery inside and everything
looks like it is from the factory in new condition! Hidden in the glove box
is a Sony CD/USB receiver with a wired in amplifier in the trunk! It has
fresh chrome on the bumpers, very nice glass, and dual Flowmaster Exhaust! This LeMans is laser straight with
excellent body lines and perfect panel gaps! It runs and drives great!

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).
Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.
