Just look at this stunning Sunfire Red over Parchment vinyl, three owner, 56K original mile 1964 Pontiac LeMans convertible here on Craigslist in Lewes, Delaware for the asking price of $29,999 we found to feature for Topless Thursday. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the seller has his LeMans priced between the #2 “Excellent” and the #3 “Good” levels.
Pontiac launched the LeMans in 1961 as a bucket-seat based, top-of-the-line, trim package on the original Tempest two-door sub-compact. For 1964, GM moved the Y-Body compacts (Buick Special, Oldsmobile F-85, and Pontiac Tempest) to the A-Body intermediate chassis. The LeMans continued in the redesigned car as the top-of-the-line Tempest with features that included carpeted lower door panels, a deluxe steering wheel, courtesy lighting, and sporty full wheels covers featuring simulated knock-offs. A new 215 cubic inch inline six cylinder came standard, while two versions of a new 326 cubic inch V8 were now available. While the GTO launched later in ’64 stole the spotlight, a LeMans equipped with the four barrel topped 326 V8 and dual exhaust was no slouch either with 280 horsepower at 4800 RPMs and a stout 355 foot pounds of torque at 3200 RPMs.
The seller states that his LeMans is a three-owner survivor with only 56K miles and aside from a new white convertible top, new carpets, a hidden FM receiver, and what the seller describes as a “four barrel upgrade” is all original. The seller states that their LeMans is equipped with power steering, power brakes, and power top as well as what they describe as “three GTO factory options. You’ll need to confirm with them what that means. Other than a dent on the driver’s side door, the Sunfire Red paint is truly a stunning shade on the car’s long square body.
The seller states that other than the replacement carpet, the parchment vinyl interior is nearly flawless. This is truly a stunning color combination.
While the seller mentions a brand new top, he does not mention anything about the top boot and none of the pictures provided shows one installed, so you’ll need to confirm whether the original comes with the car.
The seller states that recent maintenance includes a complete fuel system flush with new inline fuel filter, new spark plugs, a carburetor cleaning, and points adjustment. You’ll need to confirm with the seller whether this LeMans originally came with the four barrel carburetor upgrade and dual exhaust.
Overall, this appears to be a stunning cruiser in a beautiful color combination that you can enjoy this summer and the spend the winter taking it to the next level. Good luck with the purchase!
