Default Introducing "Pure Evil"

Two days before we left for Wcbf I found this gem in a local machine shop rear bay
Its a 1967 Pontiac* Acadian Sport Deluxe II, with plenty of drag mods

The motor is apart but complete, 454, not sure about much else with the motor. Will need a complete build.

The rest of the car is in great shape and only needs a good cleaning and going over.

These sponsors have to be replaced.

* Acadians were built from Chevelle stock from 66 to 70, from 62 to 65 they were built on Nova stock.
All 3 models were available in Canada and as such the Acadians were sold as Pontiacs from 63 to 75.

A Chevy engine in a Pontiac? Drop a 455 in there. Make it a true Pontiac.

Looks sweet!

Beaumont was a trim line from an Acadian, at first acadians were treated as their own line.
From the nova registry
Quote:
1962 -- Acadians were built on the Chevy II chassis:
Invader was equal to Chevy II model 100 (cheapest)
Canso was equal to Chevy II model 300 (middle of the trim line)
Beaumont was equal to Nova 400 (top of the line)

1963 -- Same as 1962 except Sport Deluxe option was added equal to Super Sport option.

1964 & up -- Acadian Beaumont was born on the Chevelle chassis.
Acadian Invader & Canso were retained on the Chevy II chassis with Canso being the top of the line.

Chevrolet Dealers in Canada were selling both the Chevelle and ChevyII/Nova. Some (BOP) Buick/Olds/Pontiac Dealers in Canada advertised they sold, Acadian, Pontiac and Buick. Thus treating the Acadian as a separate line. Of course in the end, they were titled as Pontiacs.
Mine is more like a Nova in the rear tail lights but a Chevelle in the front end, Dual headlights were smillar to a Malibu. Neither chevelle or Nova had dual headlights in 67.

The car in question is partially correct. Acadian is actually the make, like Pontiac, not the model. The car above is an Acadian Beaumont, and I'm pretty sure it'* a '64-65, not '67. It'* basically the body of a Chevelle, but appears to be a '64-'65 body, not the smoother lined '67.
