1969 Pontiac LeMans 350 H.O. 330 HP





The 350 H.O. at 330 hp was the hottest engine option for the LeMans before stepping up to a GTO, but you wouldn't realize this by looking at it. A black single-snorkel air cleaner hides the Q-jet, the valve covers are painted engine color, the standard log-type exhaust manifolds are used, and the lack of any ID conceals the potential within.

http://www.highperformancepontiac.co...ans/index.html

The "XU" stamped on the front of the block indicates that this particular engine is a 350 H.O. from a '69 A-body. It featured large-valve No. 48 cylinder heads and a four-barrel carburetor, and was rated at 330hp that model year. Only 2,800 XU-code engines were assembled during the '69 model run.

NOTE: XU = 350 H.O./ 330HP Auto. Trans. There was also a WV = 350 H.O./330HP Man. Trans.

1969 Pontiac Engine Codes:

The Pontiac 350 H.O. engine was only produced in 1968 and 1969. It was rated at 320HP for 1968 for the Tempest/LeMans and the Firebird.

1969 350 H.O. 325HP Firebird Convertible



Quote:
Sure, the 400 cars garner more attention, but the 350HO is rarer, with only 2670 built with an automatic, and that number includes both hardtop and convertible bodies, where the hardtops outnumbered the convertibles 7:1.
http://1308.ecarlist.com/showroom/photos?id=635369

The 350 H.O engine was coded: L76. The 400 H.O. code: L74. The 400 code: W66, while the RAIV was L67

Did you know . . .

In 1969 Chrysler produced 2,128 Convertible Road Runners. This was the highest run of Chrysler Muscle Car Convertibles ever.

In 1969, Chrysler offered the A12 (440 6 pack) and A13 (440 Dart/Cuda) option packages. They also offered the A11 option package (introduced 4/15/69):

Dana Mecum's 25th Original Spring Classic Auction
May 15-20, 2012
This Lot scheduled to be sold SAT 2:10PM

Nope - they all didn't have the Magnum 500 Wheels. This car has the standard hubcap/trim ring wheels

Quote:
Judging by the '70 Boss 302 Mustangs we see at car shows these days, it would be easy to assume that nearly every one of them came with the optional Magnum 500 wheels. Actually, according to Kevin Marti's Ford production database, only 38 percent of the 7,014 '70 Boss 302s came from the factory with the chrome-plated Magnums; most had standard 15-inch steel wheels with "corporate" hub caps, which were rather plain-looking covers with trim rings. Over the years, many owners have replaced the hub caps with Magnum 500s.

How can you tell if a 1969 GTX or Road Runner has the Air Grabber option if the hood is closed?

The Hood Air Inlet "Screens" will be Rallye Red:







The Air Grabber Air Box also came in Black (The N96 Air Grabber Option was $55.30):




They are Black (no "screens" - just decoration) when the option wasn't ordered:







Here are a pair of reproduction Hood Inserts (no Air Grabber). The black portion would be body color (or semi-gloss black for the performance hood treatment) and the silver inserts would be black (again S-GB)



Here is an underside photo (original pair):



Hood without Hood Inserts:
