Very nice & Canadian. The colour combo and the inline 6/PG along with the frugal Canadian lack of options makes this a real reminder for me of my youth. I applaud you on having a 6 inliner still in there! The temptation to put a done up SMB is hard to resist, but makes this car so Canuck.

Jerel, from 1 64SD owner to another - well done.
Now if I could just get moving and get mine into that condition.
Lovely car and nice colours.

Jerel what a sweet beautiful car you got, real sweet. You have every reason to be proud. Just simply B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. Thank you for keeping that inline six in her, where she belongs. Continued good luck with your sweet ride. Cheers. George.

Wow, an excellent example of† a really nice and rare car. I love the colour combo. You did a great job bringing it back, good for you! There is something that people forget and that is many, if not most of these cars were very light on options when built. Was this originally a 194 six? The 250 is an instant upgrade, and they run better than you might expect in these relatively light cars.


†Cam i thought the 250 came latter. Would the upgrade not be a 230 inline six. I agree that these modern sixes (for the time) were very surprising in the power department in these very light cars. A properly set up six can give a small block a run for its money. Good to see that sanity prevails and the six is being left in the car. Cheers. George.

†George, you are correct. The 250 did not become a Beaumont / Chevelle option until the 1967 models, though it was introduced in the Big Car line as a running change February 1965. Literally the 230 & 250 share the same block & hardware, only the crank is different. Jerel's gorgeous Beaumont came with a 194 but when new it could have had an optional 230 with a one-year-only hotter cam, chrome valve cover, oil filler cap, air cleaner lid. It also would have had a checkerboard 230 badge on the front fenders had it been so equipped.

†Light cars?† Don't think so in the convertible, or maybe I'm getting weak at my age, had to push mine into the garage when the starter croaked.

†Hey Brian, it is just the extra weight you have over the front end!
