Networkhooniverse.comFor Sale – 1967 Pontiac Beaumont Sport Deluxe


IMG 20130601 00841

One of the cars I saw this past Saturday at the Big Rock car show was this 1967 Pontiac Beaumont Sport Deluxe.

Here are some of the specs the seller wants you to know:

Big block Chevrolet 454

Holley 4-barrel carburetor

Edelbrock intakes

3-speed automatic with a Turbo 400 transmission

3-inch headers, Magnaflow mufflers, 2.5-inch exhaust

Frame off restoration and custom interior

Center Line wheels

$14,750.00 OBO

On paper, it sounds like an average restoration with a few performance modifications bolted on. In person, well, it kinda looks like an average restoration with a few performance modifications bolted on. I’m thankful the seller didn’t go with the small-block GM 350 crate motor, although it would be completely understandable if he did.


So rare is this car that I frankly had never heard of it. Thanks to some quick work by Bing (yes), I learned that these were built for the Canadian market for the purpose of avoiding trade tariffs. Originally equipped with a Chevy 396 engine, the Sport Deluxe was the SS396 of the Canadian market. After 1968, they went out of production. Essentially, this car is all Chevelle beneath the skin, with a few Pontiac styling cues tacked on to make it official. It seems some things never change.

Here a few more Beaumonts I found on the interwebs, to give you a better perspective on this cousin to the Chevelle.


It seems many of these are still in Canada, making the one that showed up at the car show all the more interesting. It also makes the asking price more reasonable, given its rarity.

What do you think of this Canadian cousin to the Chevelle?
