Re: Lets see some Beaumonts

Here is a 64 convertible that was at the Coeur D'Alene, ID, car show last weekend. The car show is every year and is called Car D'Alene. This was the first 64 that I have seen, and it was beautiful!

Re: Lets see some Beaumonts

I went to the Peach City Beach Cruise in Penticton BC yesterday and I've never seen so many Beaumonts and Acadians in one place in my life. Man I'd like to get another one some day.















This pic is huge. I didn't want to downsize it so you can read the show card. What is so rare about this car to warrant the guy wanting 72 G's???

The rest of the show pics here.

Re: Lets see some Beaumonts

The beaumont convertible is a 1/66 built, maybe 20 remaining?... very rare, nicely optioned...If I had money to burn, I'd buy it! $72g's is a high number though! If it was a chevelle that rare, it'd get that money pretty easy, a beaumont...I'd say mid 50s on that one, if it's all numbers...

Here's mine... restored it when I was 14, and still driving it!

Last spring when I bought it, complete with the fancy 2 inch exhaust pipe coil spacers out back for that 80's look:

Re: Lets see some Beaumonts

Apparently they did make a 68...none in 69. There is also a claimed potential 65 cheetah being restored... It would be nice to see any real paperwork that substantiates these cars as cheetahs. Probably the only thing that would be authentic is an original sales receipt with a cheetah option listed on it.... So it looks like its reasonable to believe that Conroy made them in 66-68.

Chris, have you posted pics of your car?

ps my cousin used to own a super rare original 69sd 396 post car

Re: Lets see some Beaumonts

Interesting to see you guys using soft8 style rims on these cars! Those rear tires are sure stuffed in there! Have you raced the car on the track? any timeslips?

Not soft 8 wheels, these are a set of Bassett D-hole lightweight wheels with a set of mickey SR tires.

I have raced it with the old setup and pulled a 13.2 on those street tires, i am expecting a high 12's on street tires and mayby around 12.5 on slicks?
