1965 acadian canso- sees the light of day once more


hiya Pontiac guys and gals, figured I would share my ride, was a bush find dragged out with a tractor, became a 12 year resto-mod stripped to bare metal and repaired/replaced from there, roof was bent in ,rear inner and outers were a hack job from years past (someone tried using inner and outers from a 4 door wth!), interior was a rats nest with little left, half the trunk metal eaten ect, all work was done by myself and a buddy in one garage ie painting, motor, body work , its finally a car again and on the road, whew lol, will add a few pictures , cheers

Welcome from the Okanagan and great to see your persistence in getting it completed. Too many of them get started and then left. I just sold a 65 a few months ago that was in that holding pattern for too long. They are just such great looking cars. Hopefully will see you on the road some time as it looks like you are out here in the west.

No doubt ALOT of blood, sweat and tears went into bringing her back to life! Great job! & I really like the colour choice.

Welcome from the Fraser Valley BC.  Very nice car, love the build pics.  Even though I can turn a wrench (a bit wink) I bought my car fundamentally done as I know my limitations. That said, I really admire folks like yourself, and others on here, that have the skills and confidence to tackle a project like that!  Maybe when I retire....smile
