What a great muscle car! Beautiful paint and interior...the bench seat could seat 3 up front! 4 speed, tripower car. Nice to have the original air conditoning. This is a sleeper...I'm sure many would figure it to be a regular family car!
1967 Pontiac Acadian Hardtop
I'm glad I was able to film this rare car again. We have Canadian visitors who grace the car show at Old Town with this splendid car! It is based on the Chevy Nova, and was sold at Pontiac dealerships in Canada. The Acadian has a Chevrolet powertrain consisting of the 283 engine and Powerglide automatic.
Pontiac cars in Canada were based on Chevrolet frames and engines, but had unique Pontiac style bodies. It's my understanding that this was made necessary by the lack of a free trade agreement between the U.S. and Canada at the time.
1963 Pontiac LeMans convertible
Beauty! This blue color was common at the time..most manufacturers offered a version of it! Notice the character creases in the rear quarter and the trim that accentuates the fenders. Some versions of the car had the 326 c.i. engine as this one does..others had a V8 engine essentially cut in half and offered as a four cylinder model (195 c.i.). The transmission was aft, and a flexible driveline connected it to the engine. A good example of how engineering experimentation was alive and well at GM during this period.
1954 Chevy Del Ray two door sedan
I thought it was about time to video a car that would be a family's typical choice back in the day. The upholstery and paint are original...and amazing feat, and a testimony to the quality of materials that went into the car! No fancy gizmos, no power anything...Blue Flame ohv straight 6, gearshift on the column. This did have two tone paint, and a radio and heater. It may seem improbable, but cars were sold without heaters, particularly in mild climates!
