Inheriting a '64 Parisienne CS Hardtop Coupe


Hard to imagine a new car looking that rough so soon after it was made. Heck, at work we have some intense durability testing including salt-spray chambers that simulate many years of winter driving in the worst and saltiest conditions and nothing looks even remotely this bad...

Gonna look into the cost of replacement parts (floor w. braces to start) and go from there. Really would hate to see the car get turned into a cube...

Looking at your pictures just reminds me how fortunate we are......on the west coast.

If you are stuck on a 64 Canadian Pontiac.....you could find one out here...that needs far LESS welding......and save a TON of time and $$$$.

I'm not really stuck on anything, so to speak, but this one is free (to acquire) and so even if I don't have the time/money right now I can keep it until I do as long as I have space. I'm not sure if they made a CS Wagon, but a big block CS wagon with a 4-speed would be my ideal 'Poncho' if such a thing existed. I would mainly keep this car a) because it was my uncle's, b) because it's free and I like a challenge (I can be a bit of a masochist sometimes).

 

I love wagons, so my next old project is likely to be a wagon of some sort. Safari, VistaCruiser, Chevelle Wagon, etc. Between Ontario and Michigan though, pickings are slim, rusty, and almost always overpriced.

Hey guys,

Does anyone have or know of any cheap but safe storage available within a few hours of the GTA, ideally closer rather than further? Not much time left for us to decide whether to keep or scrap it and I'd like to hold onto it until at least spring, but need somewhere safe to store it. I don't need access to it between now and spring, and definitely don't need the place to be climate controlled - just need somewhere that will let me keep the car safe and from deteriorating any further (so no dirt floors).

Feel free to post here or PM, but we're looking to spend as little as possible for now.

Thanks!
