My 1975 Pontiac Le Mans

I picked this car up in the pandemic in 2020 and have been torn ever since, right in the middle of my divorce, it was a deal I could refuse, things were going great until a bit ago I found my self wanting to sell the car then keep the car, I'd go to car shows to sell it just lookers no takers. believe me when I say this car is MINT condition the only imperfection is the front bench seat, the more I look at it the more I grow to love it, no where in Michigan have I been able to find another just for cruising buddies so if I can't find someone willing to give $10,500 $10k lowest I guess it was meant to be. so now I have this bright Idea to drop in 6.6 from a 2001 PONTIAC FIREBIRD OEM LS1 5.7 LS ENGINE 4L60E AUTO TRANSMISSION LIFTOUT! then super charge it, so can I get a vote keep it the way it is or do the mod?

Michael, keep it stock mate :cheers:, you will regret it if you LS power it..., yes the new engine is gruntier, yes the new engine is more reliable, yes the new engine is better on the co going into the air... BUT.

she came with that  motor, its all factory, like you said .. super mint... and i agree:cheers:

if you did want to up spec the motor, do a electronic ignition kit, heck, do a efi carb retro kit, and justA save all the stock gear for future..

and drive the tires off it !!! 👍... and enjoy before the bean counters have us all driving electric bumper cars !!! hahahaha:dancingpontiac:

Yes , nothing will beat an original look. I kept the original drivetrain in mine, could had gone with an LS but wanted to feel like the 70’s when I pop the hood.

Mike, I'm with the rest of the crowd, keep it original / numbers matching. My first Pontiac was a '73 Lemans Sport Coupe. Same body style as yours. This is often referred to as the Colonade design or style. 

I'm not sure where in Michigan you live, but there is a Pontiac show coming up this weekend at Baker's Restaurant in Milford Michigan (SE Michigan). It is the Motor City POCI Chapter's annual Summer Round Up car show. Here is a link to their event page for all the info:

A few of us FP's will be there - me, JUSTA6, and maybe Indyman Joe.

Welcome aboard. Great looking 75. I'd keep your car original, don't see many of them out there after all these years.
