Re: 69 Beaumont with Factory air

Here in Canada, air wasn't very common back then except for the more expensive cars Buick, Cadillac etc. and even then not all got it. With our climate, it wasn't considered necessary and wasn't affordable for most. As people became more affluent, even Canadians wanted their air. Look at any car from the sixties with the GM of Canada documentation and the list of options is usually pretty short. Not too many without it today and are hard to sell if they don't have it. I would think that a Beaumont with air would be VERY rare. I've never seen one. Most of us in Ontario would appreciate a car like yours this summer with all the heat and humidity. Enjoy, you probably won't see another one
