1970 Pontiac Acadian Parts Wanted


Hey, I'm new to building cars as well as Canadian Poncho. I'm building my first car which is the Pontiac Acadian and I'm looking for interior parts and emblems. Front bumper and wiring harness. I'm still deciding if i want to either put a console shift or leave it with the column shift. Any help would be amazing. Thank you so much

Welcome here Nate.

A couple of questions-

1) Do you have pictures of your project? We all love to see what other guys are working on?

2) Where are you located? We have members coast to coast so maybe you have someone in your area who can help with your search and/or tech information.

What about the engine? Was it built, or did you do it?

I see it's got 68 or older heads on it, the good ones.

my outlook has changed of this build. Before i was thinking of having everything that would make this build the best of the best. I still want to continue with that but now I am more into staring up this bad boy than anything else. I have new photos that i will be adding to this. The only parts I will be looking for now would be driveshaft, 12 bolt rear end(not sure difference between posi and regular), Radiator, gas tank, Fuel lines(braided), Rebuilding the Carberator, Front bumper, bumper brackets,and pretty much everything to make the car running and driveable. After that ill be looking for the fancy stuff like paint. Better suspension parts. and painting the car. Thank you for everyone who has helped me so far and everyone who is going to help me in the future

Nate

The only parts I will be looking for now would be

driveshaft  68-72 Nova  

12 bolt rear end (not sure difference between posi and regular) 12 bolt?   if a 10 bolt is in it.... it will work...save cash for now  if no rear end   68-72 Nova

Radiator   68-72 Nova at Car Quest

gas tank 68-72 Nova at Car Quest

Fuel lines(braided),WHY?    get lines and a bender at Car Quest (or NAPA etc.)

Rebuilding the Carberator   one of us would have a loaner carb to get it going 

Front bumper, bumper brackets,  68-72 Nova

 

and pretty much everything to make the car running and driveable. After that ill be looking for the fancy stuff like paint. Better suspension parts. and painting the car. Thank you for everyone who has helped me so far and everyone who is going to help me in the future

it was actually the tin man that helped me make this decision. and the reason i would like the braded lines is i plan on putting in two turbochargers in the car so i wanted to make sure that it would be able to hold the pressure and not rust from time.
