Vintage 1967 Outtake: 1968 Pontiac LeMans

68 LeMans 1

While en-route to Chicago in August of 1967, this ‘68 LeMans passed us on whatever Interstate that we were on. New car introductions generally weren’t held until September so I was excited to see this car a full month before it’s formal debut. I shot this from our family’s1960 Plymouth Fury.

Although I thought that the ‘67s were good looking, the ‘68s knocked me out. I thought that this iteration was one of the best to come out of Pontiac in the ‘60s.

My sister’s boyfriend had a ’67 LeMans convertible. He put 200,000 miles on it and traded it in on a ’70. He probably got that many miles or more on it. Where did Pontiac go wrong? Or was it GM?
