CC Outtake: 1967 Pontiac LeMans Sprint Six Coupe – Living In Shadow

This was sitting outside a local video game store, and I had to stop and take a look. At first, I thought it might have been a GTO, which have been written about time and time again on oh-so-many different car sites that I wasn’t going to bother doing an article.

Until I saw the badge on the fender…

Huh. Interesting… This prompted a look around back…

…to find a LeMans badge! Now it was all coming together!

The Sprint Six was reserved for the LeMans and Tempest coupe as an option pack, while the big block was saved for the GTO. It was not a popular option, as it was dropped after 1969 to be replaced by the Chevy sourced 250 I6, to be used from 1970-1976 as the base engine.

I was happy to find this rare example of an interesting car that has lived forever in the shadow of it’s V8 brothers.
