For 1972, the top-line intermediate for Pontiac was the Luxury Le Mans, available in hardtop sedan and coupe models, featuring upgraded interiors compared to the regular Le Mans models. The Le Mans Sport was available as a two-door hardtop or convertible with Strato bucket seats and interiors from the Luxury Le Mans. The GTO was changed from a separate series back to an option package on Le Mans and Le Mans Sport coupes. Replacing the previous GT-37 option package for 1972 was the new "Le Mans GT" option, available on Le Mans pillared and hardtop coupes with any V8 ranging from the 350 two-barrel to the 455 HO four-barrel, and also included the same appearance and handling items carried over from the GT-37.
The "Le Mans GT" first known as a GT-37 option package in 1971 was a marketing ploy by Pontiac to make an affordable muscle car for everyone. In Fact the marketing slogan was There's a little GTO in every GT-37-and you don't have to be over 30 to afford one. In fact if you got the stripped down GT-37 with a 455 under the hood it was in fact, a GTO Killer. This didn't sit well with GTO owners and led to the T-37's quick disappearance. The car became known simply as the GT for 1972 and could be ordered with any engine option as well. It also included white letter tires, body colored mirrors, rally stripes, dual exhaust and GT decal identification.
This particular example has no evidence or history of any accidents or damage and has obviously recently been very professionally repainted and the vinyl bench seat interior is still in beautiful original condition throughout! The car was obviously always well maintained and garage kept considering it's lovely condition and completely rust free body with no sun damage! The 350 V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful with a reported 43K original miles!
