66 Grand Parisienne on eBay from Calgary


very detailed description

right colour combination

I would say it is reasonably priced.

I love how the factory made a mistake on the cowl tag, caught it and restamped it!

Nope, I only can do one old car and I have one.

The only way I give up the one I have is if this white car would have been a documented big block stick car.

The only way I would ever have said that would be under the influence of some illegal medication.

Now get back to work Darryl, the boss might fire you if he catches you fooling around on CP when you are at work!

I'd seen this car in person about two years ago - it was pretty decent. I believe the owner at the time was a member of the local Pontiac club (Iron Indians) - he was super friendly. If it's the same person/owner, I'm sorry that he has passed away.

That ebay listing certainly gets an A+. What a great listing.

And I spent about 20 minutes looking at pictures. Aside from the lower front fenders that car sure looks to be solid original metal, a rare find for sure.

Sadly, I am betting it won't pass 6K on ebay.

Very nice original for sure. I've never seen an air deflector like this one has before,... all console cars should have it.

Why no putty in cowl tag rivets?

Good point but maybe it just got missed, or they cleaned up under the hood and removed it.

Sweet car, I luv the buckets and the interior. Looks like there would be a bit of work but a very solid looking 66!

I must say that the 66 Grande is quite nice. The steering wheeel, padded door panels, the dash and the instruments are quite attractive, and the dash strap by the glove box I think is more sexier than my 68. Sweet car, I like it. I must say that I like front end more on a 66 more than the 67. I apologize to all 67 owners as that is a horrible thing to say but the 66 is sweet IMOP!

All in all, this is a very nice looking car, I can't say enough good things about the interior. Funny how certain aspects of a car such as this interior just draw you in. It really pulls me in for sure!

I think part of the draw to the interior is the colour. Those cars with red interior are so in-your-face that you can't help but love it!

I think my favourite interior of all time was the 66 that I sold to Tom. Same as this one except the Strato Bench.

I like how the gauges are angled toward the driver as well and the wood in the sterring wheel. Small details like that get me excited, lol!

 Americans won't often buy Cdn Pontiacs, maybe if it was a BB 4 speed but not likely a 283 PG car. Ebay is not a good place to sell most cars out of Canada, but is a good place to find buyers. I'd say you are right on the $6K Carl, may be high?

       I agree... It won't go high on E-bay .  Seller wants 15,600 cdn for it .   and its in Canada   

       I'd buy it in a flash for 10 grand, but I'd never insult him with such a low offer ....  I have 2 fenders and a big block .

 2 fenders and a big block???  I didn't want to say it but that was exactly what I was thinking!   Drop a 427 in there and a TH400 and I am really getting excited!  427 Carl, stop it already!  Lol

I knew there was something wrong with the pictures of the car, and now I figured it out. It's missing a pedal...

Very nice, very early production car.  I wouldn't exactly call it loaded though as it came with a pretty ordinary load of options and the standard engine in a Grande.

However that hot looking interior looks as though the car either came straight from or is heading straight to hell so that turns me on!

Its kind of a really neat contrast to the mild exterior for sure.

If my wife wasn't around I'd probably buy it, stuff in a 396/400 TH that i happen to have sitting around in a rusty 66 Parisienne and sell it pretty darn quickly.

The 283 is such a gem I'd just keep it to look at.

        I had a 66 big inch, big block with a 400 turbo   switched to a 4 speed for $3500 and ruined the car (in my opinion) 

        It was way more fun to drive with auto . It ran 13.30 at 101 in 2nd gear at the track .   

         second pedals are like baby boomers .  soon to be dead and gone
