I just picked up a 1972 Lemans Luxury completely stock with some rust. It runs like a champ and the only modification I'm aware of is it now has dual exhaust. It has the factory skirts with the 350 2bbl engine, A/C, I only bought it to help a guy out who had no choice, but to sell it and move out of state. I need to sell it now due to financial reasons. If anyone is interested in purchasing it please email me for pictures and more info. Thanks. My email address is 1dukeofearl@myway.com

1972 Pontiac GTO Clone for sale. 350 with automatic. This car was painted about 7 years ago and presents itself well. Is missing the rear valance. Has PMD rally wheels. The interior, other than the front seat, which has seat covers, is in good shape. A fellow who does classic body work, gives it somewhere between a 3 and a 2. 402-725-3320

I have a 1972 Pontiac Lemans GT with a 400-4bbl, dual exhaust - this was was ordered with a TH400 automatic transmission and from all my research it makes it 1 in 216. I am still in the restoration stage with a complete engine overhaul and trans overhaul last year. I paid $150 for it about 15 years ago and drove it 80 miles home. If anyone is interested in discussing this, please drop me an Email at lemansgt@yahoo.com.

Hello,

I have a 1972 Lemans GT. It was purchased new by my family back then and was driven home by my older brother and me from the dealership. It was to be MOM's new car...however,

He drove it to college after borrowing it a zillion times from my Mom. He then was ready to sell it for an Audi Fox. I got wind of this at the dinner table one evening and asked my parents if I could obtain it instead. I small deal was cut and My brother happily turned Mom's old GT over to Me and went on to purchase his Audi back in 77. I am happy to say that I still have this car today. It has been cared for and modified to some degree over time. It has been a major source of enjoyment for myself and my own family as they have grown to the ages to appreciate it. Although the 350 2brl 3 speed on the floor had been removed for a more substantial drive-train. (462ci) This car has lost no pride or value to us. If anything... it has become our symbol of summer.

I would like to add to the 72' Lemans GT story here. My dad purchased a 72' Lemans GT from the local dealership. There were 2 available. One, White with the blue reflective side stripes and the other (the one he bought) was Lucerne Blue with the silver side stripes. It had beautiful white interior, bucket seats, endura front bumper, dual exhaust (side exit behind the rear tires), 400-4bbl, Hurst 4 speed (actual hurst shifter lever). Sway bars front and back. They sold it in 76' when I got my license (they would not let me buy it at the time as they said it had too much power). I ended up buying a 65' Lemans with a 326 auto.

I know these are a very "rare" car. The one stock photo I see most on the web is of a Gold w/black stripe one. I would give almost anything to have the one my dad had!

I grew up with my dad owning (from new) a 65' GTO, 67' Firebird H.O., 69' Lemans Custom S, and the 72' Lemans GT. I myself have owned my 65 Lemans, 72 Lemans Sport and a 69 GTO.

Hi, I just had a 1967 Pontiac Le mans restored. It was my parents car throughout my childhood and has lots of memories. The paint job is so beautiful...it's like baby blue, but darker... looks like cotton candy! It has a straight six engine Overhead cam which was rare. It's a beauty! If anyone would like pictures just ask! I may consider selling if the price is right. karenmmc3@gmail.com.

I am restoring a 1974 Lemans GT, 4 speed-350 V8, buckets, original cluster gauges etc. I have no clue how many of these were made and can't get much information from the net as it seems this is a pretty rare car.

Can anyone give me an idea how many were made of this year or how much the cars worth?

Email me at Andy.Dutil@yahoo.com.

Thanks!!!

We have just been given a 1972 Le-mans, very good condition, with 4 doors, red new paint, no rust, new mag tires, and approx, 60 THOU miles.

I know it was highly valued by the owners and taken care of, what do you think I should get for it, I can take it to Orillia car show this fall to sell sale, or can post it.

Also does the fact it runs really good and is in such good condition, will this have an effect on the value, where it can be worth more than 8k?

Thanks for any help, Canada, Ontario resident. Bonnie

It seems a lot of people are looking for the production numbers for the 1972 LeMans. Can anyone help? I have one that is very rare, I think. It's a convertible with a 400 2BBL, Endura front end.

I own a 1972 Lemans GT also. Bought the car new when I realized I was going to get married and had to get rid of my 1967 GTO for a more "family oriented car...

I used the car until 1991 as a everyday car here in North Central Pa. in all the seasons.. It was getting pretty rusted out after 20 some years in this area, like all of those era cars did.

Me and my brother-in-law decided to restore the body so I could continue to use it, but did such a good job on the body that I decided to park it till I could finish it totally with new bumper, strips, etc.

The color of my Lemans GT is sundance orange with black reflective side stripes with the GT letters cut out on the front fender area. It also has the endura front end package with a 350 2 barrel engine and auto on the column with bench seat.

I am so happy I kept this car. Being the original owner and having it restored to its original factory look is great!!...

After running this car for over 20 years as a everyday user, it is now being used to cruise with and to take to car shows in my area.. I have never run across another Lemans GT in any car show yet, so I am sure that these GT models are becoming a very rare find.

Mine has all matching numbers and about 56,000 miles on it now. Would never part with it and am sure it will be passed down to one of my children when that time comes.. would also love to know what kind of value this car would be worth today? It is back to its original factory looking condition now. Would appreciate any information anyone could give on as to where a person could find out approx. how many of these classic cars are left and approx. value of them.. My email is dmcgill@alltel.net, would love to hear from anyone that can help in this matter or wants to talk about these cars.
