New 67' Lemans owner
I have wanted a 67' GTO convertible since I was a kid. Just been a dream car of mine forever. Iíve known for a long time that a 1/2 way decent convertible GTO of that age is going to be more than I can afford, so Iíve kept an eye out for a Lemans as well. Finally had one come up local for a great price and I decided to hop on it and buy it. (probably shouldnít have, but it was too good a deal to pass up)
This seemed to be the place to go for Lemans stuff (even though itís a GTO forum). Im very active in the forums with the other car I own, so Im no stranger to the format.
A bit about the car:
It is a 67' convertible, runs and drives great, little to no real rust (which is a big deal in Michigan). Iím guessing 119k miles as I doubt itís the 19k on the clock. Interior is in very good shape for its age, top works, needs a few things here and there (which I will be researching here soon). Could use all new door seals, suspension is probably shot from what I can tell, but I have no idea how old any of it is. Tires are ok for now.
Has a 350 in it right now with the 4 barrel carb. I did get the numbers matching motor/heads/intake manifold as well when I bought it, so I could always go back to the 326 if I wanted, but Im not planning on going numbers matching or anything like that, so I will just keep the motor around for now. My other car will be faster than this would ever be anyway, so Im not going race car with this, just a nice weekend cruiser.
I havenít had much time to really mess with it yet. Got it last Thursday and have been busy all week getting ready to leave for vacation on Wednesday. So far I have ordered a car cover for it and that it. Need to get it insured, titled and plated here next week so I can drive it.
Well, just wanted to introduce myself before I start doing some reading. Thanks.
