I have no idea how many are around here.  I recall a '67 4 door, but actually see more '68/'69s.

There are probably tons more, though, as I'm always surprised at what seems to come out of the woodwork.  Always seeing cars around that I've never seen before, often to find out they've been here for years but rarely make it out of the garage.

I'm guessing in the Winnipeg area there's:
5 convertibles (2-735, 3 customs)
2 four doors
1 738 SD
3-4 736 SD
A few more hard tops that are Customs or SD clone

I'm sure there's a few I missed, or have moved...and always a few hiding!

I know of 2 original BB396 cars that are sitting unrestored-in Manitoba.One will never be sold or restored and one will probably end up with the same fate.Crappy I know but that is what it is.One of them is a stripe car too-with 4 piston disc brakes-red.

I remember so many over many years. The only '67 Beaumont around here currently is an estranged member Glen's black '67 Beaumont Sport Deluxe. His car was built around the dropping of the Sports Option & switch-over to 738-series.

In the 90's there used to be a stock '68 Custom coupe in Primavera Beige with a black vinyl roof & interior, with buckets & console, wheelcovers & whitewalls, oh, and a 230 Powerglide just about a block from my house during business hours. The car was clean and stock, inside & out, under the hood & underneath. Other times the same guy brought a Frost Green '69 base Beaumont 2-door post like the one in the brochure except that it had dog dish caps.

Back in the 60's our neighbor across the street had a '65 Beaumont SD convertible and I remember 2 brand new 1968 Beaumonts a few blocks away. There were countless Beaumonts in town of all years. I was young and couldn't count very high. There was a '64 Beaumont Custom coupe 2 doors east of me until '68 when some Welsh people moved in, bringing their European car familiarity with them every time they bought a new car. Later there was a gold '67 Beaumont Custom wagon from late '70s through mid-80s in Ancaster that shared the driveway & garage with a '72 Challenger in Hemi Orange with appropriate-sized Cragar S/S wheels

 

A neat car I saw a few times near my home between 89/90 was a 1-owner '67 Chevelle 300 2-door sedan, original Nantucket Blue paint with very minor blemishes, no antenna ever and a Malibu-style block-off plate. Only options were Powerglide & whitewalls. It had the unique Canadian shared Beaumont-Chevelle 300 horn button. It had an aftermarket suicide knob on the steering wheel and the original Queenston Chev-Olds emblem on the back panel. The owner looked like a prickly pear, rawhide complexion, large nose and all. A little later near work I saw a freshly painted '67 300 post with big Corvette Rally Wheels & figured that somebody bought it and did the obvious thing. Later I saw the original car still in survivor mode, so apparently it was a different car.
