1963 409 PARISIENNE CONVERTIBLE


Hi Everyone, Beaumontbill here. I have been very busy lately and made several changes in my car collection. My prized vehicle is still the 68 SD 396 Convertible but I have added a Yenko Camaro to the collection and a project to work on with my son, a 68 z28 rs . Anyway I have too many projects and not enough time and or space. Last fall I purchased a 1963 Parisienne Convertible with it's original 340 hp 409 automatic from the west coast of Canada and had it shipped to Buffalo NY. i have had no time to even consider starting the resto. The car is rough and will need a total restoration. It will need floors and a transmission and a top and seats and an interior and .it should probably have a donor frame as well. It is white with a blue interior and will be gorgeous when brought back to it's original glory. I know this is a rare piece of Canadian history. I have the phs paperwork . It deserves to get done. I have never seen another real 63 409 Parisienne and would love to see this restored. Other then Canadian Poncho this car will not be advertised unless nobody wants to bring it back to Canada. I payed 6000 for it and spent 2000 getting it to Buffalo. I am offering it for sale for the same 6000 I paid for it. The shipping cost was mine to eat. Please send me a pm . I would be happy to send detailed pictures to or answer questions for anyone truly interested. Thanks !!!!

If I had a good workshop I'd seriously consider it. I hope it goes to a good home.

I has a pretty good look at it last May....and felt it was totally do-able....for somebody with NO other projects on the go..and a FAT bankroll...

It sure looks it. If it was a 4 door Strato Chief 6 standard it wouldn't make sense because of $$$ but in this case? No brainer. What a find!

I found the power vent windows a curiosity.....Can't say I've seen them before.....on a Canadian built 63...or 64.....wonder if they were factory installed?

I feel quite safe in saying no Canadian Pontiacs or Chevrolets were ever built with power vent windows.

Be good to see the gm paperwork or the trim tag. Doesnt look like a made up car as in why would anyone have added the power vent window later?

When I saw that 2nd switch on the right door panel....I first thought that somebody might have changed out the door panel.....

I think I may have the Oshawa docs here somewhere...but don't recall seeing Power Vents listed..

Bill, I found a small piece of paper attached to the springs in the rear seat, it had all the option codes for my parts car. It was not very big, your car may or may not have that paper still there. Whats on the trim tag for codes?

Should be fairly easy to tell....by looking at the mounting and wiring harnesses......in the doors.....if they've been cobbled/added...

I've heard of a 64 Custom Sport that supposedly had them, as well.....but haven't been able to document....or confirm...
