  1. Awesome! That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Also their price isn't bad at all, almost half that of a Be Cool setup. I'll be ordering mine from Butler in a week or so, once life stops being in the way. Thanks for the advice!
  2. Sorry for the delayed response, Frosty! I too am inclined to trust Butler, so I think I'm going to go with what they recommend. My radiator has a slow leak, and I could get it re-cored, but I was quoted over $500 for a re-core at my local shop. I figure I may as well improve my cooling for that kind of money, since I don't care too much about complete originality.
  3. My car does have AC. That's interesting that these cars came with a 4 row. The Cold Case radiators I've been looking at are all 2 core large tube designs, and Butlers claims they're more efficient coolers than the old style 3 or 4 row radiators. What do you think about that?
  4. Thanks for all the info! I checked out the other brands you mentioned, and I think with prices and the Butler recommendation, I'm going to go with a Cold Case. I'll report back once I get it in!
  5. I have a slow coolant leak, so I'm going to upgrade the radiator on my '71 Lemans (350/TH350). Does anyone have experience with Cold Case radiators? Butler Performance sells them, so that makes me think they must be good and be direct no-modification fits, but I can't find any reviews for their Pontiac models. They're $330, which is a little steep, but if they're good, it may be worth it for a drop in fit. Can anyone recommend other good radiators at a cheaper price point that will be a perfect drop in fit? Thanks! 😋
  6. Hi all, I have 71 Lemans 350/TH350, and I'm starting to look into swapping to a Muncie 4 speed. I read on another forum that this specific conversion doesn't require a new driveshaft and that the original will fit. Can anyone confirm or deny this? It sounds too good to be true to me Thanks for all the help!
  7. I think this would look great on a calendar! Here's my 1971 Lemans, numbers matching 350/TH350 in Quezal Gold. 49,000 original miles. Repainted once in the original color, upgraded with a 4 barrel from the stock 2 barrel. Original bench seat was swapped with buckets and a console, and the interior was redone to factory specs. Dual exhaust, power steering, power brakes, factory air, factory front disk brakes, this car has it all and is a great driver!
  8. Awesome find! Gonna be a sweet ride once all the work is done. Good luck with it!
  9. Hey! I just noticed this loose-feeling wire and electrical connector on my 71 Lemans, and I don't know what component it goes to. It's on the passenger side under the hood, right in front of the wipers. My windshield washer isn't working atm, so I'm thinking this could have something to do with that. Thanks for any help!
  10. Hey everyone, I just signed up for FP not too long ago, and I thought I'd introduce myself and my car. My name is Joe, and I'm 23, living in Staten Island, NY. I just recently bought a 1971 Lemans with the original 350 and TH350. The car was restored by the previous owner a few years back, so the paint is new, but the color is original (I think), and the interior was changed from bench seats to buckets. The car has an Edelbrock 4 barrel, and electronic ignition, but is otherwise totally stock. The original rear end is open differential with 2.78 gears. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from all you Poncho experts 😎
  11. Hey guys, here's my '71 Lemans, restored 5 years ago, 350/TH350 with 47k miles, factory air.
