YAK Car Pic of the Day

It’s a Chevy! It’s a Pontiac! Actually, it’s neither. But it is a 1967 Beaumont SD396, one of those Canadian-only models built to slot between the Chevy Chevelle and the Pontiac Tempest. Beaumonts were sold at Pontiac-Buick dealers as a stand-alone model from 1966-69. Prior to that the Beaumont was a model of the Acadian line, which was based on the Chevy II. The ’66-69 models were pretty much Chevelles with different front and rear ends, and different trim. The sign below, displayed along with the car at the recent Buffalo History Museum Antique & Classic Car Show, pretty much tells the story.
