I would love to get my hands on a Beaumont, especially an SD 396 convertible. I think '68 or '69 are my favorite two years.

This a cool - never was - variant of the Acadian Beaumont  (El Camino/Ute version). The guy brings this to the Widetracker's car show for the swap meet! He uses it to haul his parts for sale! He clear has taken Beaumont sheetmetal and bolted onto an El Camino. He runs a 400 Pontiac engine and a Beaumont interior.IMG_0769.thumb.JPG.8178ddcb2891d1f91d1332718fd45c53.JPG

Beaumonts ran Chevrolet chassis and drivetrains because of US/Canadian tariffs at the time. So Beaumonts were available in small block and big block variants. This is true of most Canadian-built Pontiacs of the day. The Acadian, Beaumont, Laurentian, Strato Chief, and Parisienne.
