59 Pontiac Parisienne


Well, i ended up with my 3rd Canadian Pontiac, (this site has created a monster).  Its a barn fresh, i mean forest fresh 2 door hard top.  I have probably bitten off more than i can chew or afford, but it is the coveted 59 I have long desired.  I will probably sit on it for years till i can afford to start it.  It is pretty rough and needs pretty much everything.  Glass is good, not much else haha

That there will be a beauty. Congrats on the find. Where in Alberta was she? Even that old license plate is worth a couple bucks!

It was about half hour north of Vernon BC, not sure when it ended up in bc but seems to have been off the road since 70.

Congratulations looks like a great start. What about the 57 Chev Hardtop next to it.

She's a "diamond in the rough" now but, she'll be a real peach when you get her restored. They were a real nice machine when they were new and not something you see very often nowadays.

 Door panels are blue and white and dash is blue.  Seats seem to be white pink with charcoal.  I am going to attempt to restore it as originally as possible.  The interior could be a challenge, as i dont know if they repro this material.

 I noticed the grab bar, was that a factory option.  What was it used for, just to get out of car easier?

I'd forgotten about this car. He hasn't been here since June. I hope he sees this and replies.

Hello. I have been gone a long while. Afraid to say I do not have the 59 anymore. It went to a fellow in Alberta.
I had ended up with way too many cars and was not driving anything.
I purged everything I had and ended up with 2 cars at the moment.
I will post the absolute keeper on this page.
