Great looking Lemans! Looks like a fare amount has been done to it. Love to hear about what.

Welcome to FP Kyle.

Nice looking Lemans you've got there. By the looks of things I see some March Performance accessorie goodies, and Kauffman Performance heads. Which set of heads?

Given the hydro-boost master cylinder I am guessing you are running a pretty significant cam and 4-wheels disc brakes. Clearly you've built this for street-strip use since you have no heater core and you've added a lot of pro-touring/handling goodies along the way.

Is this car also fuel injected? I can't tell from the photos but it would be a logical next step for a car set-up like this.  That plus the two engine photos don't readily show a mechanical fuel pump. So I suspect at least an electrical fuel pump is in play here, and fuel injection would be the next step.

Please tell us more about your car.

I picked it up with a 461 in it and blew it up about a month later.....bored it out made a 468 with fully forged rotating assembly, KRE D ports ported by Jim Lehart at CVM (Built Dirty Bird), edelbrock intake, dougs headers, hydraulic roller cam with solid lifters, and a quick fuel 850 on top. The transmission is a TCI TH-400 with a Quick Performance 9" rear with Eaton Tru-Track posi and 3.50 gears. The suspension is from SC&C and will be going in this spring. I plan on EFI probably after the suspension then a 6 speed manual transmission. After that I will start working on the body then the interior. She isn't as pretty as she looks in the photos, she's about a 20 footer.
