I bought the cars including the Laurentian. It is an original numbers matching 283/220hp"Super Strato Flash" with factory 4 barrel and dual exhaust. I'm probably going to sell the Laurentian because I'm getting married and could use the cash. If anyones interested just send me an e-mail.

I hate to sell it but my fiance is totally worth it and after 9 years deserves a wedding. She has been very understanding of my automotive obssesion and me in general. She doesn't even flinch when she hears "Honey, guess what I found in this farmers field today. . . ." But don't feel bad for me, the changes are all for the good.
I still have the 57 Pathfinder Business Coupe I'm making into a 60's Gasser, a 57 4dr Safari(two tone blue original 283 car) that will hopefully be the tow vehicle for the Gasser, and a rough 57 Pathfinder Deluxe 2dr hardtop that I hope to make into a custom with heavy body mods. Thats why I'm willing to sell the Laurentian for what I have in it to someone who can give it the attention and restoration it deserves. I'm into it for about $2500. Which I think is a very fair for a car that is likely the only 57 Pontiac 283/220 known to exist let alone numbers matching. I have other parts that could be available that I have bought for extra. I might be able to deliver it to southern Ontario, Winnipeg, Ottawa for reasonable expenses.
I was asked to post some pics of my 57's so I'll try and post a bunch now.
Nice collection of 57's
Thanks, rog. Can you believe someone cut the rockers out of the Business Coupe to fix a 55 Chevy. And if you come across ANY 57 parts please let me know!
I'll make a list of what I have left, a few odds and ends , I believe I have a complete set of side trim?
PM me your home email and I can mail out pics next week.

It's likely the same car. Especially if the one you looked at had a maroon coloured 4 barrel 283 with dual exhaust and mostly all original. The car was sold new in Calgary. There is a sticker in the side window that says either Saskatchewan or Sakatoon. I bought it out of the small town of Fort Frances, Ontario which is between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay.
I've searched all over and my car is the only 283/220hp car I can find, including all the other 57 Pontiac model lines. I have heard of a dual barrel 283 57 existing but I haven't seen it, a picture or spoken with the owner. I think he might have been a member here named something like "DualQuadPete." A fellow member who worked at a Pontiac dealership in Calgary at the time remembers at least a few 57's coming in for service work with the maroon painted blocks so their were multiple "high performance" maroon 283's built originally. How many were 4brl, dual 4brl, who knows? Some have spoken about the holy grail of 57's - a 283F.I. but I found on a website someone had copies of the original production records for Rochester and no F.I. units were shipped to the Canadian plant. My car is the only one I've been able to find with a factory high performance 283 anywhere in any condition. Luckily it still has all it's original numbers matching driveline intact.

Nice car. What was the original motor in yours? Was it a high performance 283? Can you post a few more pics of your car?
I can put some pictures up in Members rides for you guys :)Mine was originally a 283/powerglide, more than likely was a two barrel car
Hi. I am interested in the 4-door hardtop for parts. Any chance of sending pictures and price to me at CarmenA@live .ca. Thanks.
