RE: 1966 Pontiac Grande Parisienne -427 engine looking for the original car


Wow, 56 cars with L36.... How rare is that!

Years ago there was a big block 4 speed car burned to a crisp at our gov't salvage auction. I always wonder if it was a 396 or 427...

Haha, oh, I was a believer before too!!!

That is very very neat to see that car back as it should be, or soon to be at least.

It just needs a pedal added......

Wow! We are seeing some rare stuff lately. You'll want to call GM of Canada's Vintage Vehicle Services. With your car's VIN they can provide you with a build sheet as well as production numbers. CLICK HERE for their website.

Please post some photos of your car if possible in a new thread in the Members Ride's area.

In response to your question about the decal, i had the muscle car shop here in Calgary get me all kinds of air cleaner decals. They get them made up by a local sign company. If you had a picture they could get it reproduced for you. The quality is great. I know it's a bit out of your way. If you did want to call them and fax them a copy I'm sure they would be happy to mail it to you. Their number is 403-569-1957.

FYI- I received a call from the owner of the car a week or so ago, he is going to pick up the motor sometime in December.

Thanks again to all.

Would you be willing to start a new topic here with the details on your car and maybe some pictures? Everyone on here who knows me will know how interested I am in a 66 Grande Parisienne 427 4 speed car...

Make sure you buy that original block for your car before something happens and it is not available.

Also, certainly get your documentation from GM of Canada. I think they will be able to tell you how rare your car is, and it certainly is rare.

Howdy I have ordered both Canadian Pontiac 396 and 427 aircleaner decals from this guy's website.

Bruce Levey Antique Auto Parts in Ottawa


http://blaap.com/
Pretty correct looking stuff and good prices.

 
Heres what the 390 horse 427 one looks like.

I'm doing a 396 auto 66 Grande with AC so if I can help you with  a part or two let me know.  There is also a guy named Grande Jim who has a multitude of these.

You should get it checked out through GM Vintage Vehicle Services For a moderate fee you'll get the original option list,  production date a package of specs and other facts that they have on record. All very useful stuff.
Good luck eh!
