Produced for Canada from 1959 to 1986, the Parisienne is an often forgotten part of Pontiac history. These Canadian "full size" Pontiacs were actually closely related to Chevrolets, making use of the economical Chevrolet chassis and drivetrain, though with the American Pontiac-styled exterior body panels and instrumentation. This elegant maroon sport coupe is optioned with a 283 V-8 with a two-barrel carburetor and automatic transmission. It is reported to have been a one owner car coming into the John Scotti collection and had never been driven in the winter. Other noted features include power steering, power brakes, and an underdash tissue dispenser. The fawn and tan upholstery shows minimal wear and is very attractive against the high quality exterior. Pontiac Rally II wheels are mounted with whitewall tires, giving an interesting period look. This seldom seen Pontiac variant would be a welcomed addition to this year’s Pontiac Oakland Nationals in Wichita, Kansas.
