Looking for parts for a '65 Canso Acadian


Hello All.

New to the forum but hoping I can find leads on a few parts.

My dad is in Alberta and looking to restore my '65 Pontiac Canso Acadian that's been in storage for 20 years.

Specifically he's looking for an ignition switch, fuel gauge/suction screen that goes inside the tank, a left front fender, tail light lenses, and some chrome trim (not sure which he needs).

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the the addition to the forum!

Welcome aboard.
Lots of helpful people on this site.
Do you have pics of the car that you can share?

Welcome here from someone who had a 65 Canso Sport Deluxe for about 28 years. However I have pretty much nothing left for spare parts, they all went with the car when it went to Whitehorse.

You do know you can get the fuel tank unit as a repro? A good fender could be a tough find though, they sure rust easily.

I should have an ignition switch and a fender that is a 6 out of 10 if I remember. Wont be home until end of the month though.

Here's what the car looked like before going into storage. It is 100 % factory and with the exception of a hole rusted in the fender, paint and body work and new tires it should be able to get running without too much $

Thanks for the reply. No rush as the car has been in storage for years. Now that my dad is retired he is going to make it his project.

VERY cool, and an SD to boot! Looks to be a 6 cylinder, that should make it one of 672 I believe. I sure hope the trim pieces he needs aren't unique to Sport Deluxe. They could be very hard to find.

Hi Carl. Yes, it's a 6 cylinder. I'm sure it's not going to be easy finding parts so I'm very appreciative of all the help so far.
He's going to concentrate on the basics to get it running but we'll send it to a professional for the major body and engine work.
If anyone has a professional restoration contacts in Alberta that could do the job, please let me know.
