    Did he leave the stick parts in the car? It would be fairly easy to go back to a stick if some of the parts are still there not to mention bad a$$

    I would hang on to any manual trans specific parts that you might have. I have an 82 Malibu wagon that currently has a 3.8 chevy v6 and a th200. I am collecting parts to eventually swap a vortec 350 and s10 t5 into it. I already have a 79 Malibu 2 dr. with a 468 bbc and 200r4, so I am looking to do something a little different. I already have the pedal set up, g body bell housing, clutch fork and related harder to find parts. I am holding off on the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and dual exhaust cross member since they are relatively easy to acquire. I am already into the three pedal swap for more than I paid for the car ($500).

    Nice find. Good to see another Lemans on here. You should relly post a new pic with the slot mags installed.

    Alright, I've been doing a little work here and there. got some parts, seeing a big summit box on my porch was pretty awesome. especially when inside was a new carb and shifter! I got a new ignition, it was super easy to install. after watching a video I realized that already having the steering wheel off, I was three quarters of the way there already. lol also pulled the cylinder out of the trunk and had keys made for it and the doors, yay!
    I don't have turn signals or flashers though. I don't have the steering lock on it or the horn pieces, would that cause no signals?
    Also just for reference if anyone with a lemans needs and or wants to update their bench seat to something newer and shallower. a 90s Nissan truck bench seat bolts right to the stock sliders and then right on to the stock floor mounts.
    I also still have some cleaning to do on the wheels, but they shouldn't be too hard. I lightly scrubbed one of the fronts with a sponge and soapy water. it looks better just from that.
    I'm trying to upload photos but it is saying they are too large. I'm at work and I don't have access to much, so ill see what I can do.
