yes it was, i believe it will be 2 years this summer. he found it on kijjiji up in temagami area. i will remember the da well got a speeding ticket 4 hours of driving south bound towards parry sound without a car to be seen except for the single opp car with radar heading northbound. car is in very nice condition, it was hit and repaired at some point as the rear drivers fender tells.looks like it was backed into a post. he got it at a very nice price, and part of the deal was the seller to float it down to king city which was worth at least $600.00 alone. now it just needs that transmission leak taken care of. it is his daily driver from mid april til approx. mid november the heater works amazingly!

cheers,

Have been talking, thru PMs, with Amedeo about the history of this car. It was sold new in Kirkland Lake, ON and spent at least the next 60 years of it's life in that area.
One of the previous owners is a friend who unfortunately, because of health reasons can no longer drive. He's younger than most of us on here.

Good solid original car with known history.

That's a beauty! A friend has an early 50's Pontiac. It has no script on it to tell me what model (I think it's a '54). The paint on his is pretty faded, but otherwise, it's in great shape. Yours sure looks a lot prettier!

A hardy welcome aboard from Milton, Ontario. Beautiful 53 Pontiac and the only thing it is missing is an exterior sun visor. Enjoy the C.P. ride and cheers. George

thankyou george, yes the visor nico was looking for one in carlisle, but not much in pontiac stuff there.  he would like to get one, though when he saw that there are screws involved into the original sheetmetal he was not so interested anymore, but if one comes along at a good price . thae last pics were taken close to you in milton, my uncle johns farm and green houses in georgetown just north of steeles ave. first street east of trafalgar. his sons and daughter live in milton, i worked there back in 77 /78 framing homes for my dad close to the original high school by a river.

 All interesting stuff to know, your connection to Milton. As far as an exterior sun visor goes, when you find one. Do not be discouraged and the key thing here is not using screws but using bolts instead. Screws may loosen off in time, bolts with lock washers never will. Carlisle and Hershey in Penn., U.S.A. will be your best bet to find the visor. Good luck with the search and again..................... what a sweet 53 ride. Cheers. George

I have to say that the car absolutely "looks right" as it is currently. The choice of colours and 2-tone are well suited to the body-style and era.

Sold new in Kirkland Lake eh? Probably some GM dealer that sold all GM makes since it would have been the only one around for miles. I remember going to Tamagami many times as a kid; it was quite a haul for us since I lived in Ancaster. On one trip up there, though it might have been Cobalt, Kirkland Lake or Hearst, but I remember seeing an old well-established GM dealer back around 1973 that still had the old 1940's style GM division logos painted on the side of the old building (you know, the old Pontiac Indian profile, the Oldsmobile shield and the old Buick crest). It wasn't retro, it would have been original. I was surprised at the time to see all GM divisions being sold by one dealer. Back then it normally was Chevrolet-Oldsmobile or Pontiac-Buick-Cadillac-GMC (or perhaps Maple Leaf truck).

Original selling dealer was McDonald-Rowe Pontiac Buick on Government Rd ( Highway 66 in Kirkland Lake )

Since the paint code is 357 which I translate as one-tone horizon blue we're thinking this is a dealer two-tone. In those days, there were many dealer two-tones, they would order the car one colour, have a body shop paint the top and voila....two-tone to the client but at a fraction of the cost of GM two-tone.

The 2 tone really sets off this car.

Cam I'm thinking if your multi line dealer was right on highway 11 then it was most likely Moore Bros in Smooth Rock Falls. I'm mentally driving that route and no GM dealer in Hearst, in Kapuskasing ( Spruce Motors ) yes a multi line dealer but off the highway, no GM dealer in Cochrane, multi line in Iroquois Falls ( Calvert Motors ) but off the highway, multi line in Kirkland Lake ( GM City ) but on highway 66, in New Liskeard there were 2 separate dealerships Armstrong Motors and memory lapse. No more until you get south to North Bay.
