Is my LeMans a bench or bucket?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I'm looking for a little knowledge on my LeMans. I have it up for sell but I'm not sure how much to ask for. It's in good shape, very little rust and mostly has all chrome. The part that gets me is that it has bolts for bucket seats and a whole in the tunnel but has a bench front seat and column shifter...

So this is where I'm lost. Did they make a bucket seat, floor shifter  1967 LeMans?

How many did they make?

What should I ask for it?

It appears to be a 66??  What engine and trans combo is in it now?  Run the numbers on your registration tag on the Dr side of the cowl, above the brake booster (if you have one) this will tell basic info on what it came from the factory with.

Chris, I think you are the recipient of someone else's parts car. I think somewhere down the line your Lemans was used as a parts car for a GTO restoration or resto-mod project. They took the bucket seats, console, shifter, and whatever else they needed. They scrounged up a bench seat, column shifter, etc. to make this a running/driving car that they could sell to help fund the other build plus it got rid of another vehicle out of the garage. I'm sorry to say but that happens. 

That doesn't mean your car can't be a bad ass car. It just will take more time and money than you planned.
