About “My Keeper”

This painting is a George Trosley Original painting that my wonderful wife gave me for Christmas.

I bought this car when I was a Junior in High School. I dated my future wife in it. We also drove it on our honeymoon. I sold it shortly after we were married. I bought it back 15 years later. It had been off the road the whole time.

After a massive restoration, it is worth WAY more to me than to anyone else.

About “The Pontiac”

My Pontiac Parisienne Sport Sedan, Model 76439, came off the production line in Oshawa Ontario, Canada on January 17 1966. The next day it was shipped to dealer Jim Pattison in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

It was brought to Ottawa Ontario, Canada by a member of the military.

I purchased the car in the summer of 1988.

It was featured in:
Canadian Classics magazine Dec 1999
Ottawa Sun newspaper "Memory Lane" June 2002
Motortopia "Feature Challenge" Jan 2007

 

Specs for “My Keeper”

Pure Pontiac with a 350/350 combination.
Dual Edelbrock carbs on a Edelbrock Dual-Quad intake.

Specs for “The Pontiac”

For those who may be interested in the technical specifications of this car, Canadian Pontiacs of this era were built on a Chevrolet frame, with a Chev drive-train.

This 1966 Pontiac rides on a 119" wheelbase, and measures 215.8" overall. Its 16.5 gallon fuel tank provides plenty of range for "cruising" in Eastern Ontario.

General Motors of Canada has researched this vehicle, and has confirmed that it is a numbers matching car. It retains the original 195 H.P. 283 C.I.
V-8.
It also retains it's original exterior and interior colour schemes; black on black

 

Factory Options for “My Keeper”

The wierd thing about this car is that from the factory it had A/C, power windows and p/steering but MANUAL drum brakes! Why would you order that?

Factory Options for “The Pontiac”

The car was optioned with a 2 speed Powerglide transmission, Power Steering, and Pushbutton Radio.

 

Mods for “My Keeper”

My belief is that you should be able to do anything to your car that you want to. I added an aluminum radiator and serpentine belt drive from Rodney Red.

1999 Pontiac Pewter Metallic paint. Originally was Dk Green with a green interior.

Mods for “The Pontiac”

None
