This doesn’t look small

The Pontiac Parisienne is a large size family car built between 1959 and 1986 in a number of locations including Canada and Australia.

The vehicle was based off General Motors B Platform, and in its first generation, the Parisienne was made available to customers as a two-door coupe, two-door convertible, four-door sedan, four-door convertible and a four-door wagon.

The second generation of the vehicle, which replaced the first gen in 1961, was still had all the same body styles made available.

However, engine choices increased significantly, and the Parisienne could now be had with a 3.8lt or 4.3lt inline six-cylinder or a 4.6lt, 5.4lt, 5.7lt and 6.7lt V8.

Power from these donks was sent to the rear wheels of the Pontiac via either a two or three-speed automatic transmission or a three or four-speed manual.

When production of the Parisienne ended in 1986, there was no replacement planned by GM, and as a result the moniker was retired.

This particular Parisienne is a ’64 model with the 4.6lt V8 and the two-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has received a new paint job as well as an interior re-trim, and judging from the photos, the Parisienne appears to be in good condition.

The seller is asking $25,000 for the vehicle and anyone interested in this massive family cruiser can view the full listing here.
