66 Pontiac Beaumont Sport Deluxe Convertible


Would love to here from anyone that owns a 1966 Pontiac Beaumont Sport Deluxe convertible. I have owned mine since 1979 and to date have not come across another one. I have seen a couple that were customs made to look like the Sport Deluxe but not the real thing. I have seen a few pictures. Love to hear from you. yawn

Nice car! Welcome to the site. What engine is in your car? Do you have the GM documents for your car? We would all like to hear stories about you and your car over the years. Do you have old photos?

Nice to hear from you Ken. You must have a beeper on me. LOL I can't hide my Beuamont from you. Just kidding. Good luck with your upcomming move. Make sure you let me know if your phone number changes because you never know when the day comes and my car takes up too much room in my garage.

Jack-

 I believe you said you sent for GM Vintage documents from the # I gave you ?

If not there were 565 beaumont convertibles sold in 1966 of that 57 were Sport Deluxe in that number were 396/327/283 and 230 engine cars

there were 3300 two door hardtop (sport coupe Sport Deluxe cars)

 There are members here with Sport Deluxe convertible small block cars and one 6 cylinder car that I can think of, only one 396 car heard of out west.

 Without hurting anyone's feelings I would have to say from what I have seen of your car in my opinion it is likely the best one left on the planet-and a great storey to go along with it.

 Drive and enjoy !

and don't forget me !


I'm working on a 66 Beaumont Custom convertible I bought from the original owner's out in Virgil

Ken

Great looking car. I've switched my 66 custom conv to a  SD. Just pulled it out of the shop yesterday after 5 years. Not finishe yet but I just had to take it for a little spin. Hoping to have it finished in 2 weeks and started driving it steady.

Hello and welcome aboard Jack, from a fellow '66 SD rag owner.  Good to see that you made your way to the site.  (I sent you an email yesterday when I came across a picture of your car on a link from a couple of years back, so I wasn't sure if it was still active or not.  Looks like it may be?)
I would agree, your's looks to be the nicest representation of a stock '66 SD rag in existance!
Mine was built on June 15, '66.  Mist Blue with the Bright blue interior.  Still has the factory 327.  Although the car is pretty tired looking.  (Also, it was repainted so I'm curious if your's is also Mist blue, which is visibly different from mine?)
Would love to see more photo's such as an under the hood, and in the trunk shots if possible?
Ken, I know it's splitting hairs but you mentioned "57" of these, and I've often heard 68 which is also mentioned on this site.  (Reason I ask is that at one point I was considering a vanity plate labeled 1 OF 68, and held back as I thought people might ask why I was touting it as a '68 when it's a '66.)  Is there a confirmed number?
Again, welcome Jack!

Jack will be able to tell you best from his documents but my records show 57 Sport Deluxe rag tops-I could be incorrect

trunk pan shot-thats all I can give you-let Jack tell you the storey-I hate to disclose about someone's car

You're going to love it here, and we're going to love you being here!!!  It's a great support group.  (If you ever have a weak moment and consider selling your car, this place will straighten you out. LOL)  
It would be great to see a shot or two of the engine compartment if and when you get a chance.

Thanks for the feedback.  My documents indicate 565 of the convertibles made, but it makes no reference to the "57" or "68"?...

If my memory is good I beleive Ken is correct. Of the 565 convertibles sold only 57 were Sport Deluxe, I iwill confirm this once I get home and check the info I received from GM. I will send you under the hood pics once I get back home sometime this week. blankstare

You know that old saying that everybody has a body double somewhere in the world? I'm not sure if you've ever seen this '02 cover from the Canadian Chevelle Beaumont news, but it lives (or lived) in Fort Macleod Alberta...
