Canadian Pontiacs

For those not in the know, Pontiac calls some of thier cars in the US different names than they do in Canada.

This would be a Catalina if it were in the US.

And a nice one at that.

Does it have a 269, a 389, or a 428?

The Pontiac Parisienne was the Canadian built sister of the venerable Bonneville and Catalina built in the US.
It was a little bit of each, both in body-grill and interior styling and was sold as an affordable, upscale version of the standard "wide-track", named in Canada the Laurentian and base model Strato-Chief.






In all, 8,568 Parisiennes where built in Canada for 1969 making it the most popular of the wide tracks. Indeed, unique to Canada for 1969 as in years past was the integration of the Chevrolet Impala chassis, suspension and power plant to this sleek body, making it prized from among the thousands of Pontiac B-body assemblies distributed worldwide and, rarer still, driving on the road today.







This Parisienne was purchased privately in October of 1998 in the condition seen here. Upholstery replacement and the installation of a custom console were performed to augment the overall appearance of the vehicle and performance was greatly improved with the rebuilding of the engine, radiator and carburetor. Added also were high performance improvements to the ignition system, both the high and low tension circuits.

Astro-Flash 350cid, Rochester 4bbl
