RitzSite visitor Carl Sucro submitted these pictures of his rare
Pontiac Parisienne convertible. Though it seems to be missing some pieces of
trim, it's a great looking car.
picture accentuates the distinct coke-bottle styling of the Parisienne. On the
sides of the body the lines of the edges come closer to form sort of a waist behind the doors,
after which they expand again to a voluptuous rear end. It's a smart and popular
styling gimmick which makes for a natural, muscular look.
Where the body of the car is well-rounded, its dash is
remarkably squarish. The rev counter on the left side of the dashboard is not
standard. This car is fitted with a 4-speed manual transmission,
operated by the gear lever between the seats. And just look at that wonderful
cream colored upholstery...
Carl's Parisienne came from the factory in Canada with a 396 SS
V8 engine (6.5 litre displacement) with electronic ignition. It drives a 330
ratio Posi-Track rear axle which I'm sure makes it a competent sprinter. This
engine certainly looks like something to be reckoned with.
Thanks for the pictures, Carl!
