Canadian BUILT Pontiacs..

We could buy the US cars as well.

My '62 Laurentian is a Chevy underneath. Except we got a 261 instead of a 235.

And my 64 Grand Prix with 8 lugs. Still looking for a right fender and a good front bumper! Can also swap against a new chromed 62 Bumper!

I almost bought a 63 a few years ago. I had to go out of town, and when I get back someone told me about it being hauled on a local scrap yard trailer.

I really wanted a 62 GP when they were just used cars in the middle 60s but I never found one. I settled for a 4spd 63 Catalina. There were a few 4spd 62 GPs around but most were automatics.

My 63 was originally a 3 on the tree. I wish it was a 62.

To "Engine-Ear" here's more of the mean GP from Oldschool Customs for u.
And couldn't resist, the "Little Rustard" Falcon also. Very few cars have a look like this over here, but that original beaten paint is startin' to get popular. Good mechanical condition and worn out paint is very cool I think.

Here is what made the '62 HD Pontiac's tick. It was some terrific horsepower for the day. If one went back for the dealer installed performance options it even became faster. There is still a '62 Grand Prix HD car here in Vacaville, CA. There weren't as few produced as first thought but still a rare and nice automobile.

Very nice car! I like the chrome wheels.

Good luck on finding bucket seats... if you do find some, you may have to sell your first born son to afford them.

Imagine my surprise when I took her out for coffee and discovered the "low fuel" light came on. I didn't know they had those in those days, much less working after all these years.

Some great photos posted here! The big Pontiacs are my favorite, having owned 9 ranging from '59 through '67, I'm a huge fan. Don 't have one currently, but will again some day.

One of the guys we hung out with bought a new 62 Grand Prix, all black with white interior, 348 H.P.Tri power, 4 speed trans. 8 lug wheels.
Without a doubt it was one of most beautiful cars of that era.

I always thought it might be interesting to put the 61 Safari taillights on the ends of the fins and fill in all the rest.
