Chance to buy a 71 LeMans ,what would it be worth ?


I don't have any idea what the car is worth or if it's anything special ? The car has no engine or trans, has new replacement quarters, needs floor repair. Is there anything I should be looking for as far as options ,the T37 was a option package was it not?  The car is the same as the one in the photo....but unrestored.

I believe the t-37 was the lower priced option on the lemans..now if it was a gt-37 that would be something...they are nice cars regardless of trim level anyways,I would think if the frame is good it should be worth $ 1000-1500$ ?

In 1971 the name Tempest was completely dropped in favour of T-37 which was as Darren said the lowest priced car in the Pontiac A Body line. It is not uncommon to see these cars with rubber floors as opposed to carpet and very few if any options. The line was as follows: T-37, Lemans, LeMans Sport, Luxury LeMans, Two performace cars were offered: GT-37 and GTO with Judge offered as well on te GTO. The name was derived from the body style code 37 being 2 door A body.

Buckets and console are better than a bench. Disc's up front rather than drums. 

I would determine price by how much cash you have to put out to make it a runner and compare it to other 70-72 Lemans that are selling. 

Also make sure the interior is in good condition. Like the dash, bezel etc. You'll pay GTO prices to replace and get Lemans on resale.

I'd say a $500 car with no motor or tranny.  A full floor is $270 plus oversize shipping

Unless you can do most of the work yourself, you will quickly have more into the car than you will ever get out of it. There are lots of turn key cars out there for sale for less that what it would take to build one. Been there in the money pit. :(

You are so right Keith ,it is better to buy something finished. The classifieds are full of projects and drivers that someone is losing their shirt on. But you see I was raised on a farm, at an early age I learned how to make something out of nothing.....it's in my blood. By the looks of my yard some days I know without a doubt that the gene was definitely past on to the boy's...yuk yuk. As a father and car lover it's my duty to pass on the torch to the boy's ,to ensure that the cars we enjoy today will still be around tomorrow.

A friend of mine just bought a 100 point restored 57 Chevy Bel air, he paid $70,000.00 plus the cost of an enclosed trailer to haul this car from Texas. So buddy has his car at the show & shine last Friday, it was definitely the best put together car at the show and it won the trophy's....SO WHAT!!!....he didn't twist a wrench on the darn thing. I didn't vote for him but don't tell him that.

At a $100.00 per hr how can anyone afford to restore a car....WOW.... I'm glad that the good LORD blessed me with the love for cars and some artistic ability....Amen.

These are a few projects that I built...

Labour cost's are high. I found a place in Wetaskiwin ( where I live ) that only work's on older car's. They do it all and the close to the museum, I paid $60 an hour. I did have to wait a year to get in though. I've already booked a spot for next year. I like the T-37 because they are so basic. I had friend's with a '71 that had a six and rubber floor. It was a daily driver for a few year's.

 I like the looks of the LeMans, the fella that has it lives not too far away so I'll check it out this week. He wants to trade for my 60 Chevy short box fleet side.
