Hello from this "Newbie" in Edmonton.


Well great site and it took me to long to find it! Now I will have to upgrade my Techno Geek skills to navigate my way around the site. I have a 67 Parisienne Convertible with a 326 engine, automatic. I am told, (but do not actually know) Canadian Pontiacs did not come with a 327. Any way my baby is fresh out of the paint booth and now I am of course panicking to find all the little parts that looked so good before she had her facelift, and now are underminded by that fresh shiny paint. Hope to contribute and meet some of you on the road this season! Cheers

Hi, and a warm (or cold!!!) Canadian welcome.

I am enclosing a picture of the powertrain options from the 67 Pontiac owners manual. I doubt that your engine is a 326, because that is from the American Pontiacs and installing that in your car would be quite a task. Can you put up a picture of it?

I appreciate the info Carl, thanks. When I bought the car 5yrs ago the gentleman told me it was a #'s matching 327 originaly owned by an RCMP in Regina. I have never checked as I do not know how. I have tried posting the picture that I have with me but have not had any luck. It keeps telling me there is an error, or it is waiting, it is probably me as I am not much of a techno guy!! I'll keep trying and try not to cause any disrubtion in the site.

I can't find the thread where I posted the info on how to put up pictures on here using www.photobucket.com

It works well, and the pictures are a nicer size than if they are just on this forum and you have to click on them.

Can anyone help with finding that link? Seems to me it was just a few days ago.

Howdy and Welcome.
  I'm new here as well.
 I think we found a good one here!!!

 "My 2 cents worth"...
 Could it be that you have an American Parisienne, if I'm not mistaken, I think GM of U.S. used the Parisienne name sake sometime in the sixties on their large models, although not sure if they used the 326...might have been larger engines(389, 400, 426???) in that size car. Does your vin plate confirm county of origin?
 Don't know any of the above as fact...just speculation!  (except for the Welcome)

I am currently working away from home but going on days off tonight so I would be interested in persuing this once I get home. I have spent so much time driving and not enough time researching, mind you I just found this site. I looked lots in the first couple of years I owned the car but kind of gave up. Obviously I have not damaged the site yet as I continue to try to upload pictures! I will investigate this "Thread". If all else fails I will get one of the kids to show me when I get home, "AGAIN"!!
Thanks & regards,

Your best bet is to call GM historical services in Oshawa. For a fee they will send you a copy of your build sheet. Then you'll know exactly what you have.

Here's the instructions you posted for me Carl, they were in the 65-70 full size forum.


I will take a shot at this from memory.

First, go to www.photobucket.com I hope the link works for you. If not, just type it in.

Do whatever is needed to register on the home page. As I recall, it's pretty easy.

Once you are set up, you can organize your pictures by album names if you wish.

I keep all my pictures in one album that I have posted on forums. The reason for that is, if you ever delete the pic out of photobucket, the pic will also be gone from the forum. I simply know not to delete any pics out of my "misc" album, because there is a good chance they are linked to a forum somewhere.

To get pics from your computer to photobucket, you just go to the right side and use the browse buttons, then load all the ones from your computer that you want in photobucket. Click "add more" if you are doing more than 3.  If you load the maximum, (I think it's 20 at a time) it takes a while, so you have to be patient.

Now, let's assume you have the pics in your photobucket account.

In a seperate window, have your favorite (Canadian Poncho) forum opened on the thread you want to post a pic in. Open up the "reply" window and type in whatever you want to say before posting the picture. Then go to the photobucket album and find the picture you want to post.

Under the picture, you will see the line "IMG Code" Left click that line and you will see it change color. Now right click that line, and left click "copy"

Go back to Canadian Poncho to the reply window.

Move the cursor to the space under the words you have written, and right click. Then, left click "paste" and voila, your picture will appear under the text your wrote.

Hope I did this complete and in the proper sequence!

1967 Pontiac Parisienne Convertible. I got my Build Sheet from GM today and my car came off the line in Oshawa Ont. Dec. 8th 1966 and was shipped to Regina Saskatchewan on the 12th of Dec. as a stock item. I am happpy to find that it is a number's matching car with the L/30 Engine (327 CID 275 HP) the transmission was a M40 (400 THM). It is one of 1799 Parisienne Convertibles built for the 1967 year with another 11 being built for Export. Thanks again for the help!! smile.gifsmile.gifCheers, John
