About Pontiac Parisienne
The Pontiac Parisienne has long been one of the most luxurious and elegant cars on Canadian roads. It was no ordinary model but a tasteful Pontiac, another reason why customers loved it. The Parisienne was a huge sales success, ranking third in Canada. It was one of the best-selling Pontiac cars in the United States. The Parisienne's history in the U.S. began when Americans became interested in large sedans. It came in two different styles: convertible and hardtop. The first Parisienne model was released in 1958 and continued to be manufactured until 1987.
The model was introduced in 1958 and was produced for over 30 years until the brand discontinued it in 1986. It joined its U.S. lineup in 1983. And production ended in 1986. Like the Chevrolet, the Parisienne has nearly identical powertrain parts to the full-size car. Important Pontiac Parisienne parts include Buick's 3.8L V6 and Chevy's 5.0-liter V8, with Oldsmobile's 5.7-liter diesel as an option. General Motors has paired both engines with a three- or four-speed MT.

The Parisienne comes standard with a 350 cu in twin-cylinder. The four-cylinder and the 400 twin-cylinder motors are also available as optional parts. The 400 and 455 cubic inch V8 are currently available as options on the vehicles. Parts like a formal roof and a near-vertical rear window were added to the sedan and coupe in 1980. Parts like the turn signals were relocated from the bumper between the position lights to the reworked grille, which was smaller. The chrome underbody was used to install the corner lights. With larger recesses between the chrome surrounds, the taillights were repositioned in a more upright posture.
Most cars belonged to the mid-range segment. This differed from the Canadian Pontiacs. In general, they were cheaper than other vehicles produced by General Motor. This facilitated their sale. Some 70,000 Parisiennes were sold each year. The Parisienne made Pontiac the best-selling brand in 1962. It is one of the most successful and respected Pontiac vehicles sold.
