1960 4 Speed


 Can anyone tell me was there any 1960 Canadian pontiacs built with a 348 or 409 4 speed in them

I know the 4 speed was an interim option on the American 1960 Pontiacs so I'd say probably not.

Yep, 4 speeds were available in 61 on the U.S Pontiacs. Not sure about Canadian 61's.

This may help. A 4 speed is not listed nor is it described in the 1961 User's Guide I am looking at.

Transmissions shown are:
1) Three Speed manual
2) Powerglide
3) Turboglide

Engines shown are:
1) 261 CID 6 - 150 HP
2) 283 CID V8 2bbl - 170 HP
3) 283 CID V8 4bbl - 230 HP
4) 348 CID V8 4bbl - 250 HP
5) 348 CID V8 3x2bbl - 280 HP

Publication is dated 1960 First Edition Part No. 5770994

I suspect that this is a good indication of what was available in 1960 as well.

I know this doesn't apply to 1960 but I remember seeing a 58 Cdn. Parr. rag top [ Black] 348 & was declared factory 4spd??  If so, you would think they carried it forward????

I've always known the 4 speeds to be a dealer installed accessory starting in 1958 on fullsize chevys.
I would assume that was carried over to pontiacs too.

Thats interesting Ray, when I saw that car at a show, owner had all options listed on sign board, & when I talked to him he said it was all Factory options, maybe some "fibbing" or he didn't know that it didn't come that way???  "As they used to say on LAUGH IN  "VERY INTERESTING"

Here is the car we are talking about. You can see the sign board Pete is talking about in the photo.

Is this the Parisienne that came from the West Coast?? It ended up in Yorkton Sask. a while ago. The guy who owned it (or previous owner) added power brakes and discs. Can't remember if it was a four gear though. Can't be too many black Parisienne ragtops around.
