eBay For sale is a very rare and original 1964 LeMans with full documentation as described below. It was optioned from the factory like a junior GTO with a four speed Muncie M-20 trans, simulated wood steering wheel, spinner hubcaps, factory 3.08:1 ratio rear axle and surprisingly a Pontiac inline 6 cylinder engine. The car is tagged and runs great, but ready for the next enthusiast to take to the next level.
It was purchased from the original owner in Phoenix, AZ and subjected to a father/son restoration in 2008 for the son to drive to high school and college in Flagstaff, Arizona. The car was repainted and mechanically reconditioned. Although not perfect, the car was shown in local events and was very nice. Unfortunately, in 2011 the car was involved in a front-end accident. After that, we replaced the hood, grills, core support, fender and various other parts and the car sits as you see it now. It's running terrific once again and driven locally on a regular basis. It is ready for someone else to paint and restore it to its former glory.
This is an exceptionally well-documented 1964 LeMans built at the Fremont, California assembly plant on July 28, 1964, very late in the model year, and delivered to Louis Frahm Pontiac in Downey, California. The factory-installed options make this a very rare car. Few were manufactured with a 6 cylinder and a four speed transmission. Only 1,019 of the 1964 LeMans' were built with a California-emissions 6 cylinder (block code 81Z) and a manual transmission, including the more common three speed manuals. The number of four speed cars, like this one, is unknown but is much lower. After over 40 years of collecting GTOs I've never seen another LeMans like this. Adding the other options makes this car extremely rare, perhaps one of a kind. It is numbers matching.
The car had one previous owner! It has less than 90,000 original miles. The engine, transmission, shifter, rear end, etc. are all factory originals. Even the single exhaust system is original Pontiac parts! The original Rochester one barrel carburetor and intake were replaced with a period-correct Offenhauser aluminum intake manifold and Holley 390 cfm carburetor to enhance performance and that really made the car fun to drive. All the original induction equipment: one barrel carburetor/intake components including the California emission air cleaner go with the car.
Plenty of factory documentation come with the car including dealer invoice, Protec-to-plate, PHS paperwork, receipts, original dealer license plate frame etc. The car has been in southern California and Arizona all its life but does has some minor surface rust issues in the trunk and a few small areas on the outside. The underbody/frame is sound w/o rust and drives straight. There is a hairline crack in the block near one of the motor mounts but that could be repaired with block solder that comes with the car. The upholstery along the back seat has sun damage and included in sale are reproduction black vinyl seat covers. Also included is a period correct aftermarket vacuum gauge. Up to date maintenance on vehicle. Factory wiring harnesss: not butchered wires to deal with.
