Many Canadian Pontiac dealer brochures online at TOCMP


Thought I'd post this for any members that haven't discovered The Old Car Manual Project.  They have a good selection of Canadian Pontiac brochures to view at this link:

http://oldcarbrochures.com/main.php?g2_itemId=66898

Just scroll through the pages and you will find brochures for: '48, '58, '61, '63, '66, '67, '69, '76 and '78 full size Pontiacs, plus '62 - '65 Acadian, '66 - '69 Beaumont, '70 Lemans and Tempest, and '73 Astre.

Happy browsing!

Thank you MC for the Link
I did some looking around. I have some of those Acadian brochures myself.

Here are the results from several searchs
65 Acadian = 65 Acadian Beaumont and Canso and no Pontiacs
65 Pontiac = 65 Pontiacs and no Acadians or Beaumonts 
65 Pontiac Acadian = No results
65 Pontiac Beaumont = No results

You're welcome.  Glad to help out.

I'm just happy that they chose to include brochures for these wonderfully unique Canadian GM products.  I'm hoping somebody will send them scans for '59 and '60 Canadian Pontiac brochures, as these are among my favourites.

Y'know, for years I was confused anytime somebody mentioned about a '64 or '65 Beaumont that they once had or knew somebody that had one, etc. and they called it an Acadian Beaumont.  I thought "hmmm... I thought Acadians were the Nova based ones"...  I had always been into the '68 '69s that were just Beaumonts, and Acadians were just Acadians... (though admittedly I still can't bring myself to not think of them as Pontiacs... too many old habits, I guess).

It's only been recently that I'm starting to get it all straightened out in my head... not there yet, but maybe someday?  I can see why there remains some confusion among enthusiasts looking back at these cars 40-some years later.  Maybe some day we'll all get on the same page!

Now you can stop being confused and believe what they said when they called it a Acadian Beaumont and stop thinking of them as Pontiacs. smile

Ha Ha!  I'm taking middle ground here.  I now understand why they call the early ones Acadian Beaumonts and the later ones just Beaumonts.

However, I'll always think of them all as Pontiacs, even if the Pontiac name isn't on them.  Too much Pontiac styling and marketing influence here for me to think otherwise (sorry).  Guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks!  smile

But at least I won't go to an owner and say "hey, nice Pontiac!"... unless he tells me it's a Pontiac first........biggrin

That is good to start. smilebiggrin

Yes, you can teach an old dog, it just takes a little longer. I am a very patient with those who want to learn!
