Do you have more pictures of yours? The front corner looks sweet! I figure by the time they got to ours, they'd a fair bit of practice.

It'd be interesting to get a bunch of them together - kind of like Chevellebration...

Mine's pretty rough. Not abused, just pretty much neglected for a number of years. Needs a proper restoration which isn't in the cards. It is a rag top though, which has been extremely enjoyable. Also still has the factory 327 (although it's an auto.)
I'll see if I can dig some photo's up. What province are you located?

A rag top! Any idea of how many of those are still around? Can't be many.
I'm in SK.

It seems like the 66SD rags still on the road probably don't exceed a dozen.  (And I've yet to see another 66 SD rag with a 327.)  I wish mine looked as good as this other one listed in the Beaumont register:

Maybe someday (LOL)

Just one chubby guy's opinion, but I think you should submit pic's and the story of your car as a potential April feature car.  It would be great to hear/see more of it!

Wow - that one is a real beauty.

I am a little surprised there are no 66 SD ragtops with 396's. But with only about a dozen ragtops left out there, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I suspect cars with a 396 were more likely to end up being written off. Maybe there were none built to start with?

I mentioned one I saw about 6 or 7 years ago in Regina. Wished I'd taken some photos. I think Dave W from CCCB might have got the numbers off it, but I am not sure.

I would be willing to provide some photos & a little write up but don't know who I'd send it to or if they'd accept it.

I think you should give it a shot...

"Rog, (and anyone else interested in having their car featured) please email photos (as an attachement) to canadianponcho@rogers.com along with a brief write up about the car (how you came to own the car, what work you've done on it etc)."

OK
Finally got my act together. Here's the skinny on my Beaumont.

The details are
73617 = model number for a Beaumont Custom V8 two door sport coupe
M = lower/upper body exterior paint colour Aztec Bronze
393 = interior trim code for ivory vinyl
A02 = tinted windshield
A51 = Sports Option package or front bucket seats
F40 = HD front & rear suspension
J50 = power brakes
K05 = block heater
M35 = powerglide two speed automatic transmission
N40 = power steering
PO1 = full wheel covers
P58 = 7.35-14-4 ply white wall tires
U63 = AM push-button radio

It was built on the afternoon shift on June 9, 1966.

Here's a picture if it works. Note that all the original parts are safely stored away.



Awesome ! I love it !

 Incredibly great looking car !
