Default Lee / Pontiac

Hello everyone,
I just found out that an unknown engine I've had for many years is a Lee/Pontiac. I have been unable to find any info about this little engine and was hoping someone could help me out about it's history and value, it's in good running condition.
Thanks,
Ken

Ford,
Here's one thread but also do a search here for more information. Value $500 to maybe as high as $1000 for a complete original. Mayer carbs are often missing as well as crankcase breather.

I don't remember a Lee Pontiac. Sure it's not a Lemans Pontiac? I really liked the GTO of 67 vintage. Does t look like this? I took this at Hope Ark. show several years ago.

Ken,
Don't know much about them but seen one sell at the Kutztown auction in April of 2010. I'm petty such it was a running engine. It went for 800.

Here is the link to a picture on my website of a Pontiac engine made by the Pontiac Tractor Co. of Pontiac, Mighigan.

My picture shows the "other" side of the engine.
