The original LC is a machine with a real cult status and for many good reasons. Its radical styling and technological advancements meant it led the pack from the first turning of a wheel. Easily able to out fox machinery many times it capacity, and power, with a combination of stunning acceleration and sharp handling, the LC quickly built a reputation as the street-racer to be on.
Now thought of as a legend, the production run was a short one, the LC getting a brief period in the spotlight before an all-new power valve equipped model was released during the latter part of 1982.
These short production run Elsie's are very desirable fully restored examples such as this are a rare find.
