Another faint sniff of the holy grail of Pontiacs!


I didn't want to distract from the location and news of 66 427  

but it reminded me of the 1965 Pontiac Parisienne Custom Sport 409 4 speed  reported on in 2009   

Nice photos   I will re-post  

Wondering how car is? Owner was on site 2 days ago    

The car was thought to be 1 of 2?

Any idea of the production dates of these 409 cars?  Still trying to figure when they stopped making them.

So I have a couple of questions: First, Pontiac ever put a 396 in a full size after the 409 like Chevy did? And what was the known last '65 Pontiac built with the 409? Me and a buddy were dicussing this today in his shop.He has a wealth of knowledge there on Chevy's but lacking a little in the mid to late Canadian Pontiac production figures.
