Yes, I think that's what it is but it was disconnected. There is a Delco dial under the dash hooked up to it, nothing left from the vacuum thing to the engine ? Maybe they disconnected it in the past because it was faulty ? I wonder how much these were worth ?

I'd possibly be interested in the windows Pascal if they run ok
I'll do some homework and see if they actually will interchange between 69-70 Impala/Bonny. I'd heard way back that they will.

Cheers, Mark

Ditto here, ours was named Clem, had him with me when I came nose to nose with a black bear. They may look cute but when the chips are down they aquit themselves well.

Oh ya , SHOTY on the air cleaner ! lol

I pulled the carpets off tonight and some of the front floor plugs to let the water out, this car is unbelieveably rusty, trunk floor is hanging down... what a stench ! What makes the dash a rally cluster, I thought it needed an RPM gauge ? Tonite, I hooked up a battery to try the power window motors and convertible top motors, bench seat...everything still works.

GPARIS-This car has the rally cluster. Mark posted how to rewire the Canadian cluster plug to work with this cluster. I installed it in mine and it looks great (bit of a bugger getting it out but the results look good!)

Don't feel bad about wrecking out. How else do you get the funds to redo the Lemans. I also wrecked a few cars which pays for my hobby. My wage goes to the family not Pontiac's.
Pascal you didn't tell me it was an A/C car. Send me a pm I want that system if we can make a deal. I'm sure it will fit my GTO.

I think the gizmo is some sort of a pump to keep the air shocks inflated. It looks just like the one that was on my 56 Chev. I can't remember exactly how it worked (it was 25 yrs ago, though I still have it somewhere), but it definitely pumped up the shocks

If you decide to part the car I can also see a few things I'd be interested in for my 69 Parisienne, which has the same color interior. Let us know what you decide to do with the car.

The NADA description of low retail value specifies that it only needs minor reconditioning. Mine needs a major, I mean major overhaul.

I would say its a rare. Do any of you guys use nada? to find the car prices, I searched the 1970 Bonneville convert with the 455 engine and air conditioning. It came up with these prices
Low- to high value
TOTAL PRICE $9,458 $15,860 $26,780

Ken is right. My only advice was to get the docs on the car and see how rare it is. Then decide to sell it whole or part it. If you part it, I see some nice bits I'd like to have!

Well, I hope I didn't offend anybody, my bad, I shouldn't talk about money subject on this forum, I realise it's not what it's for, I appologize. Anyway, It makes me happy to restore, search, part out cars, tinker, turn wrenches...It's my hobby and I love it, I also love helping somebody else with the part they need to complete their restoration and so on, Pascal. P.S. Carl, Is the 74 SD still in Canada ?



Yes, it's in Winnipeg. I had a buyer lined up in Tennessee but he had some struggles for a while, and in the meantime our dollar gained so much it put it totally out of range for him to buy it.

I would say more but the buyer prefers to remain fairly low key about the car until it's on the road. Also, he is scared if people know he is building an SD455, they will hose him when he buys parts!

Bottom line is, it's your car and you can do what you want with it. You can drive over it with the biggest Caterpillar you can find if you want, and nobody has a right to whine because they didn't find it and buy it!
