1967 Pontiac LeMans: A Time Capsule Showcasing the Complete Package – Unmolested and Unrestored

The LeMans was already approaching the end of another generation in 1967, so Pontiac introduced minor refinements, focusing on the new model scheduled to launch in 1968.

The most notable change happened in the engine department. The General Motors brand dropped the six-cylinder unit borrowed from Chevrolet and adopted a new Pontiac unit that developed 215 horsepower on the Sprint version thanks to a Rochester carburetor.

The 326 continued to be the show’s big star, becoming the most common choice on the 1967 LeMans. It also puts the wheels in motion on this fascinating LeMans that has recently emerged from a garage.

 

Posted on eBay by seller jnonalaw09, this LeMans has everything you’d want on a time capsule. The car is unmolested and unrestored, flexing a spotless interior and good-looking exterior. It’s not a perfect 10, as the original gold paint is a bit faded, but the repairs it needs are minor.

The owner explains that everything runs perfectly on this LeMans, with the engine starting and driving “like a dream.” They claim the LeMans spent its entire life in a garage, allowing its original shape to be beautifully preserved throughout all these years.

 

The seller explains they previously purchased the Pontiac as part of a collection belonging to a Southern California lady. The LeMans rarely went out, as the woman, also the car’s first owner, parked the car in a garage and drove it only occasionally.

The vehicle comes with many intact parts, and it still flexes original everything, including even the trunk mat. The seller says it’s in beautiful condition, and so are the seats, the door panels, the headline, and the dashpad.

 

The only thing not working is the air conditioning, but only because it needs a recharge. The original system is still in the car and operational but no longer blows cold.

The odometer indicates a little over 66,000 miles, and they are all original, which makes sense considering the vehicle spent its entire life in a garage. The vehicle needs nothing if you want a show car, but a collector might go for a full respray and other occasional minor fixes if they want a Pontiac in tip-top shape.

The price is unsurprising, considering this LeMans is almost a museum piece. Time capsules and survivors never sell cheaply, and this Pontiac makes no exception. The interest in the car is going through the roof, with 36 bids recorded in a few days online. The top offer at the time of writing is $15,300, but with three days remaining until the auction ends, I expect the digital fight to become much fiercer. There’s no reserve, so the highest bidder will take the car home without further questions
