1965 Pontiac Beaumont Review
She's A Beauty — The Beaumont was actually an Acadian Beaumont Sports Deluxe. Black with white interior stock 283 cu in. V8, 2speed Powerglide trans, console shift, bucket seats up front, bench in back, lots of cool trim decals on the grill on all over the car. It drove nicely for a stock car, obviously would've liked more power but if you kicked it into first at around 50 mph you got some peak hp from the motor and a nice little push back into the seat. This is a rare car, one of only around 900 made with this trim package. Classic styling and feel. I sold it to a guy who was going to restore it and upgrade the motor to a hopped up 283. Tons of fun had with this beauty, especially considering it was my first car. Purchased in 1995 (fourth owner), sold in 1999. Started a family and all of a sudden my baby was gone.
Pros: Classic styling and comfort, nice mood lights and a very cool electric fan rear defrost.
Cons: That I had to sell it.
