January 2018 Feature Car


Happy New Year! It's hard to believe 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Canadian Poncho. Why not kick of the celebrations with a feature car that is truly a Canadian exclusive? Marc Allen owns this tastefully modified 1968 Beaumont SD. Marc had tried a few times to buy the car but the owner wouldn't sell. As we can see persistence paid off and Marc is now the proud caretaker. Marc tells us a bit about the car:

When I became a fan of the Beaumont I started looking seriously for one of them.  I was looking for a specific model, a 1968 Beaumont SD. This is the third one that I own. When I found the car it has had belonged to quite a few people. The last owner being from Marieville, Québec. Two years ago I made an offer to the owner and he didn't accept it. 

I kept reaching out to the owner and finally last September he agreed to sell it to me. Now the car sleeps in my garage.

It has a 468 ci BBC, with aluminum heads, TH 400, stall 3500, 12 bolt posi 3.73 and a dragster suspension.

I haven't done any serious work on the car yet, only fixed a few items, like a flasher, licence lights, back up lights, horn, transmission cooler and alternator.

I installed LED lights in the cluster. The build sheet indicates the Beaumont was delivered to Abais Pépin Automobile in Longueuil, Québec.

This winter I want to replace the transmission. I have a rebuilt TH400 full manual, replaced both bumpers and redo all the chrome so it's even shinier. I have installed a monster tach and want to add three gauges on the hood: water temp, gas pressure and oil pressure.

I already own two 1968 Beaumont SD projects, but I'm happy that I'll be able to cruise with this one next summer!

And by the way, you say you are redoing the chrome but it really does look excellent already. Is there something that the pictures don't show?
