Welcome!

PS. The consensus is that Beaumonts are not actually Pontiacs. There are many threads on the topic if you are ever interested in doing a search.

As mentioned, pics are always well recieved!

          So you mean they are Chevelles in Canadian clothing? Probably all built in the same plant, I know the dash is from a GTO\Tempest and the taillights are unique to the Beaumont. I love the maple leafs in the steering wheel and on the front emblem!

The reference is to the fact that GM never officially designated Beaumonts (and Acadians in the sixties) as Pontiacs.  They were actually treated as stand-alone brands, although their Pontiac lineage with split grilles and arrowhead emblems is hard to deny.

I often hear Beaumonts referred to as Canadian Chevelles but I think that is misleading as you could also buy Chevelles in Canada (and they were built in Canada as well) at Chevrolet-Oldsmobile dealers, whereby Beaumonts were available at Pontiac-Buick dealers. 

There are many here that can give you better and more complete info than I can, but as mentioned there have been many threads on this site devoted to the subject, if you are inclined to seek them out.

Love your car... don't forget to post more pics! wink

Yes, welcome to Canadianponcho. Your new Beaumont looks good! Chrome window frames were an unusual option that changes the look of the car. Also I'm not sure if my eyes deceive me but it appears that your car also has hidden wipers. They were an extra-cost option on the base cars for a short time (68 / 69) and are almost never seen on the low-level models. Option RPO C24, Hidden Wipers also included an articulated left wiper blade.

 

Gotta say I am not a fan of flex fans though. With flex come metal fatigue, and when they are spinning at higher RPMs they can become shrapnel and cut the hood (or worse!) Not trying to fear monger, but just be aware of the potential.

Thanks for the info on the hidden wipers! Yes the flex fan will be changed to an electric fan next year when I start to change the engine into something with a bit more bang.

First priority is making it safe to drive so have some work ahead of me.
