Some 66 Lemans Photos

Gang some photos of my 66 Lemans. After reading so much great talk on the Forum I finally signed up.

I have put a B&M dual gate shifter and Th350 trans in it, runs great, a nice cruiser!

This is not the original color, it was Marina turquoise and was painted in 1989.

Anybody tell what exact paint color this is? it has a mild metallic flake....

Beautiful car!

I recently found and joined this group and there is a wealth of collective knowledge to be found here, I am sure someone will know what that color is.

The original Pontiac color to which you refer is Mariner Turquoise. It was more green than the current color of your car. I had a 1967 GTO that was Mariner Turquoise in the early 70s. Always liked that color.

Welcome to the forum. Nice LeMans, may be Lemans Blue?

Lemans Blue GTO's:
https://www.google.com/search?q=lema...w=1360&bih=653

As you can see by the link, in most paints there can be differences in different manufactures mix of what may be called the same color. The factory bright blue for 66' was Barrier Blue which mine was, when i re-painted i chose Bahama Blue Mettalic which is a 90's GM color which matches the Barrier with a very fine silver flake in it.

Thanks Guys, Instagatr you have a cool car as well, and we may have the same color this could be that Bahama Blue with the light silver flake.

I wanted to thank you for inspiration as well as I was going to put a 67 Hurst dual gate in, and the console I saw were all rotted out and way to expensive. So I searched out the B&M Quicksilver and then saw your successful mount of the same with the 66 console.

Mine went in keeping the console and the B&M fits like it is stock. Had a Auto with manual valve body put in th Trans Th350 by Coan Racing and used their torque converter as well. The TH350 really makes it ride great. Geeteeguy had helped with some solid advice on that as well. Bolted that 350 in a couple of weeks ago.

It has dual exhaust and the HO exhaust manifolds, just had to lose that heat riser. I always hated those things.

Thanks Pontiac Jim and Dan as well, yes, not a clone just keeping it a Lemans. Tempest, Lemans, GTO....all in the Family!

I love these cars we all do, because what you want to do with it is all OK and your choice..........

I drive it have some fun!

What a beautiful '66!! It looks like your re-paint color is 1967 Chevrolet Fathom Blue, which looks excellent on your car. Knew a guy with a '68 Camaro that was the same color.
