Welcome to my web page.
This is my 1967 Pontiac Parisienne Convertible, I purchased it on 13th September 2002 from a private seller located in Adelaide, South Australia for my 40th birthday.
When I bought it I didn’t know anything about this car, but I was looking for a big “Yank Tank” as I really like the classic American cars and this one came up for sale at the right time and I fell in love with it and took it home. I wanted to find out as much as I could about my new toy so I contacted General Motors Vintage Vehicle ID Services in Canada, after providing them with the cars VIN number and a small fee they were able to give me this cars full history.
It was manufactured by General Motors on March 16th 1967 in Oshawa, Canada as a factory right hand drive for export to Australia, and is in original condition except for the colour which was originally Tuxedo black. It was shipped on March 30th 1967 to Melbourne Australia.
Only 1,810 Canadian 1967 Pontiac Parisienne convertibles were built, 11 were for export sale, of which only 3 were RHD for Australia.
These cars were built using Chevrolet Chassis and running gear with a Pontiac body, this was done to keep costs down as pontiacs made in the USA were expensive to import into Canada.
The parisienne hard top cars were assembled here in Australia but the convertibles had to be specially ordered in direct from the GM factory in Canada.
