I'm rebuilding my grandfathers Pontiac lemans he is currently dead. Died of cancer but trying to rebuild having hard time finding parts needed help.
What other vehicle would I be able to rifle parts from. I need a new hood being the hood is rusted, and a trunk. I also have other parts needed but not sure if another year lemans would be able to do or even if I would be able to use a Malibu or a cutlass please help.

Really as far as body parts go, the non GP Pontiacs are the hardest parts to get. I wish you luck.

A Pontiac wagon hood works I think and I'm pretty sure the deck lid is the same as Malibu

Check out '82-'86 Bonnievilles for the hood & trunk lid.

body parts are pretty much Lemans exclusive but for a few exceptions. I can't say for 4 dorrs or wagons but I know the doors for a 2 door coupe are the same as a malibu and interchangable. Trim parts mostly interchange for all years 78-81 Lemans and 82-87 bonneville. don't forget a 78-80 GrandAm is the same thing with a different nose. It all depends on what you need.

Be specific with your needs and a few guys here will surely be able to help. Good Luck and Welcome to the familly. Now post some pics of that Lemans.
