Welcome to another edition of the Hooniverse Weekend, and I thought I would start out with this rather rare 1969 Pontiac Custom S Hardtop Coupe. I know what you are thinking… But Jim, that’s just a damn Pontiac LeMans or Tempest… How rare could it be? You would be surprised… In 1969, Pontiac had four nameplates for their intermediate sized lineup, and they were in descending order: The GTO (Yes, during this time period, the GTO was a standalone model), The LeMans, The Custom S, and finally the Tempest. I’m not sure why the division heads decided to have a Custom S instead of a LeMans Custom (like the did in 1968), or at least utilize the Tempest name like the Tempest Custom, but I guess they knew best at that time. What is really interesting about this car is the options, or should I say, the lack of options. The engine under the hood is the Pontiac Exclusive 250 CID inline OHC Six Cylinder, making about 177HP at that time. There is also a Three-Speed Manual shifted on the column, and when was the last time you saw one of those? The rest of the car is pretty ordinary for the time, probably mis-ordered from the factory because it has a vinyl roof, full wheel covers, no A/C, and an AM Radio. The listing states that the price for this timewarp is $18,000 which is just a bit high for a car with really nothing special going for it. Of course, we all want it, but the asking price has to be a lot more reasonable. Oh, and about how rare the car is, according to the listing, there were 3,918 1969 Pontiac Custom S Hardtop Coupes produced. I wonder how many were equipped with the OHC Six and a Stick.
