Re: 67 Beaumont convert

408 Beaumont Custom convertibles with V8 power for '67, plus an even 100 base Beaumont V8 convertibles, plus 66 SD396 convertibles. I don't have the 6-cylinder production, but not many built. Throw in winter driving in the rust belt and a bunch of decades, the rare sightings make sense.

Re: 67 Beaumont convert

In the past year there have been a few '66's come out of the woodworks. I know of two very nice models for sale in Vancouver, and one in Edmonton. Not inexpensive, but very nice. (I still have my '66 SD rag with it's original 327 PG that I picked up 30 years ago. They do grow on you LOL.)

My twin brother and I scrapped several "A-bodies" two decades ago (that were way too far gone)...even poor parts cars, some having rotted frames that one could not even tow (down the road) - we did scrap a "plain Jane" 6cyl. BEAU conv. / Ontario roads, had lots of winter road salt...rust cancer was real bad, without oil spray undercoating (my vehicles got it every fall, from the mid 1970's).

I parted out several rotted out Chevelle/Beaumont's back then and saved all the good stuff, by packing parts around a one owner 1965 Chevelle S/S, dry stored since 1980.
(I later purchased the '65 hardtop, 10 years ago.)
- stored stuff on the dry top floor of a rented barn, parts 4 feet deep and 4 feet high around 3 sides of an original '65 hardtop

Now you got me thinking, but I believe our junked base Beau convertible, did not yield much.
It was one of the worst "swiss cheeze" rust buckets I ever saw...probably parked on grass, for many years.

FYI
- total Chevelle production was approx. 33x more vehicles, compared to the Beaumont...in the years they were made (comparing apples 2 apples)
- even the 1966 S/S Chevelle production of one model option, equaled approx. all the Beaumont's ever made, in 6 model years (from 1964-1969...2 & 4 door, wagons & conv.) in all body styles

Baron - good luck on your next Beaumont find...takes time, these cars are extremely rare today.

Re: 67 Beaumont convert

with the correct beather installed, $35000 is a fair price. however, in these economical/financial time, it will take awhile to sell.
