New to Pontiac


Hi Everyone,

I just purchased my first classic Pontiac.
Its a Canadian built 1970 Parisienne Convertible.
Its a 350 (Chevy) with a TH350.

I have read that I should be sourcing Chevy parts and not Pontiac parts....its all a little confusing.... Could anyone tell me if the Hood hinges off a 1970 Impala would fit the car or should I buy the 1970 Catalina hood hinges...or are they the same...lol

Thanks guys. I am so glad I found this forum..... I hope to document the ressurection of this big bodied Pontiac

Thanks again
Rob

Glad to be here,

I have a 67 Chevy Impala as well but that one is stored at my parents place. Just got the Parisienne and starting my project plan.

I am at work but I will post some pics this weekend. I took photos of the Flatbed journey... ahah

Thanks again
Rob

I'm pretty certain the Chevy hinges are what you use but I wouldn't be surprised if Catalina and Impala hinges are the same.. Carl (the other one) on here has the parts books and should be able to verify it with us.

I am in Ottawa. Could you inquire about a price for the pair of hinges?
I would rather not have to deal with duty and US Shipping

I haven't bid on them yet, did't want to bid if they wouldn't work.

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

Theres a guy on Ebay right now parting out a 69 Parisienne convertible. I believe he is in BC. Go to ebay.ca and search for "parisienne" and his ads will appear. Send him a message about the hinges-I'm sure you will be get them cheap.

Sorry, I saw this earlier and forgot to check for you.

Your hinges fit 69 or 70 full size Pontiac, US or Canadian car. It does not show in any of my books including the Hollander interchange that Chevrolet will fit.

My starter is low.
Can you grab me a can of starter fluid.
Maybe a couple of muffler bearings as well.

You guys are lucky you have old cars with old headlights. Performing hologen headlight services can be expensive! We have giant tanks of hologen at work- costs $50 to fill up a set of headlights!biggrin

Hmmm, now I'm not sure about upgrading my headlights to Halogen.
Do they come pre-filled on the first set?
Or do I need to get them filled before installing?

Hey Carl, not sure how to tell if starter fluid is regular or synthetic.
And Carl
I'm pretty sure I've got summer air, it's only driven in the summer, so no need for the more expensive all season air refilll, but thanks for your comments.
