Hey guys!

This 1966 Pontiac Parisienne is my very first project car, and I picked quite the train wreck haha.

It was sitting out in a farmers field since 1982. The farmer said I could have it for free if I could get it out of the field- well, I’m not one to give up!

Ive had it for just over a month. Mice had made a cozy home in there for many years so the entire interior was garbage. Ripped it out the first week. Second week was spent continuing cleaning, and ordering parts for engine. Third week, sourced interior seats- first from a 1950s Chevy but sold those and bought blue bench seats from a 1960s Buick. It’s not as nice as the original but will do for now! 
 

Last week, we took it down to the cylinders and found out the 283 motor was seized. Just bought and hauled home a 307 so I’ve been getting it ready to install. Still needs LOT more work but definitely making progress.

Ive been documenting the whole journey over on Instagram (@thepontiacproject). Would love if you followed along!
