1969 Pontiac 2+2 427/390 Convertible Barn find - But this one a 4-speed


I checked, he only has one of the 427 emblems. I imagine those are not going to be fun to find. Anyone have a spare?

If you have one 427 emblem get it 3d scanned and have a copy made with a 3d printer. There's a company in the US that now 3d prints with metal thus eliminating the need to make a mold. The name escapes me but Jay Leno featured them on one of his videos recently.

The top picture is the '69 emblem and the bottom picture is the '67 repo. The '65 trunk emblem does have different stud positions but is the same in appearance.

Well it's finally dry enough in Northern Alberta that the owner will let my guy come and inspect the car! So I should know in a couple of days to a week whether I'm going to make an offer on the car. I will if it's restorable (by me, that is) and complete enough.

The irony is I already have owned it's identical small block automatic brother... so I know what it'll look like when done!

There's a set of NOS side markers for sale on the forum:
canadianponcho.activeboard.com/t63275462/1969-b-body-side-marker-lamps/


 Unfortunately those bezels are for all models EXCEPT 2+2 and Stratochief.   All American models and the Laurentian and both Parisienne and Grande Parisienne had side moldings and had specific side marker bezels that served to also end the molding.  The Strato and 2+2 don't have the moldings so their side marker bezels are rounded at both ends.

However the lens, gaskets and housings interchange.

 I have some side louvers if you are short any. I also have a set of the side marker lenses and bezels. The side 2+2 emblems might be a different part number, however, they are identical to a '67 and are reproduced. The trunk 2+2 is the same as a '65 and is also reproduced, you would still have to come up with the "pontiac" emblem.


 When you say the 69 (canadian) trunk emblem is the same as the 65 I assume you mean the 65 tail panel emblem?  The 65 hood emblem looks quite similar but has a different part number.

I didn't have any luck finding someone to reproduce the emblem - if anyone has any leads on a company that they know does it (as opposed to could do it in theory), let me know! And thanks for the tips on the other emblems, that's always easier than restoring pitted up originals if possible.
