My Poncho has a Chevy 350 in it....They came with 283s and 327s.......
Actually, a Canadian Pontiac is the same length as a Catalina..........The Bonnevilles were a few inches longer.
The third picture above is a 68 Beaumont..........It had a 327/4speed Saginaw, but was sold at Pontiac dealers.

As for that old Parisienne
Be it Chev or Pontiac powered
It was much better "dressed" than the Bonneville was---(as I remember)
Oh and thanks for the refreshing of the name--have not seen one in over 15 years--I am amazed that I even remember it let alone what it was called.
I was close tho

About the Parisiennes.............they had Chevy frames and drivetrains, such as my 62.

Yup, the Fargo (dodge) and the Mercs are few and far between down here.
As a kid in Idaho, I saw quite a few.
And when I first saw a 65 Parisienne-----I was looking all over that car for something that said Bonneville--------'Cause that is what it was!!!
Then the Americans stole that badge and started using it in about 84.
Oh---a neighbor of mine in Arizonahad an Acadia??? the Canuk version of a Nova. had a lot of different trim than the Nova.

I'd have to agree be nice to see some merc trucks.

Don't see how you could go wrong for 1K.
Reminds me of a '70 F-100 I once owned. Had a 302 and 3 on the tree. Geared really high too. I've owned a number of cars and trucks over the years but I swear that thing fired up every time in 1/2 of a millisecond. Never been able to duplicate it.
Alot of people like to take off all the lettering and badges. Me, I kinda like em.
You see alot of Fords and Chevys but it would be cool to walk buy an old Merc truck for a change. Just another opinion, but it would be nice to see some chrome back on that puppy.

|poncho62||Correct.......The Merc was a Canadian model. I think the last ones were around 68, so that may be a collectors item. All body panels are the same except said tailgate.....and trim. Still lots of that stuff floating around here at swap meets in Canukland.|

I think that in that timeframe they only used the Mercury name on trucks sold in Canada. I think they are mechanically identical to the Ford light trucks.
I lived near the border in the 60's and 70's, and saw many of the Mercury trucks in Canada, but never saw one in the U.S.

re: 1968 Mercury 100 pickup
I didn't know Mercury still had trucks in '68. Is that some sort of model?
