Brake replacement

Question

Being brief, I have an all original 1966 pontiac Parisienne (Canadian specs with shipping docs) and I really need to change the Brake Booster/ Master Cylinder out. I can't find one on line anywhere so now I'm trying to see if anyone knows (absolutely without a doubt) what car has the exact same fit??? someone told me a Catalina then someone else said the Bonni.... So before I spend the money I would like to know for sure (year, model, etc....)... any true help out there??

According to Wikipedia, it's a Bonneville.

Added: I read the Wiki a little more and now I'm not so sure anymore. It says that it's related to the Catalina too....

The Parisienne was the Canadian equivalent of the Bonneville. You need to looks for parts from/for a Bonneville. I believe the Canadian ones are more skinned Chevys than Pontiacs (Like my Phoenix) So you might be better off looking for parts for an Impala, Bel Air, or Caprice, Which are all similar vehicles. You could also try the Olds 88 and the Buick LeSabre.

But yes, basically, your car is a Bonneville.

Parisenne's should have the same booster as the Impalas, Caprices, Catalinas, Bonnevilles as well as the Grand Prixs.

All of the big cars at least. Check the canadianponcho.com as they are smarter then I am.

I agree with notallthere. Canadian Pontiacs of the 60s were more Chevrolet than Pontiac in terms of chassis components. I will check with my buddy, dualquadpete. He lives outside of Toronto too. He owns a '64 Catalina with dual 4-barrels...hence the name.

We were correct, comformation from dualquadpete. I posted your question to him verbatim and his answer is:

You are Correct "sir" all mechanicals are from the Chevrolet!! The Cdn. Pontiacs were just a Chevy in disguise!!!

      Hey I’m new here, looking for front rotors on my Catalina. It came factory with disk front and will eventually need rotors for it and can’t find any anywhere. Down the road I want to upgrade the suspension but can’t find anything there either. Ultimately I want it to be a fun boat to cruise in with some power I can take down the strip occasionally

      Hello, our 16 year old found a 1980 Phoenix that had less than 80k miles on it for less than a grand so she bought it. After a water pump, pads, calipers and rotors we still cant get the drivers side caliper to retract.
      The passenger side is fine.  When the car is on stands and in drive the rotors are turning true, no wobbling, which is hopefully telling me the hub is running straight.
      When the brakes are applied the drivers side caliper, which is brand-new, wont retract back unless I open the bleeder valve. When I open the bleeder valve the caliper retracts and the wheel hub starts spinning normally.
      Can anyone please give me some insight on what the problem may be? The caliper is getting plenty of fluid on the bleed but just isn't retracting. 
      Thank you,
      Dana

      I have a 2000 pontiac grand am 3.4 liter i recently changed my front breaks and i understand new pads smell a little but i drove it on the freeway and at one point i had to push break pedal all ths down to stop what did i do wrong? Also it kind of overheats temp goes 3 notches above normal temp but never fully overheats once i start moving it cools down just want to fix small issue before it gets worse any advice would be great. One more where are the other spark plugs only 3 are visible in front and how do i get to them?
