1967 738 Beaumont


I have a sd Beaumont that was stored away since 1976 it had a colour change from silver. Its a rust free car and Im restoring it back to the original colour. My question is the rear wheel wells. I had the bottom sand blasted it only had light undercoat In the wheel well area and when I was cleaning them up I thought I seen silver body colour. Now is it supposed to be body colour or black

First off, welcome here. You've come to a great site!

About 10 years ago I did a good chunk of the restoration on my nephew's 67 SD 738 car. When I stripped off the undercoating in the wheel wells there was the car body colour, Granada Gold under it.

The floor colour underneath the undercoating was a kind of blue/green primer or sealer of some sort.

Thanks thats what I thought This car was originally silverglaze also. This car was taken apart to be repainted in 1975 /76 in a garage in North van and not touched till I picked it up at Easter No missing parts. Except the 396 was replaced by a 454 and after Checking numbers ect. Its a low mile like new compete 1972 ls7

 My memory of this is right on the colour but wrong on the location. I dug out some old pictures. This is what was on the underside of the floor and in the wheeltubs.

Thanks. Just had a cool finding today. I actually found a second serial number on the bottom of the Passenger rocker panel. Always heard of a second but never actually seen one before.

 So it had the car serial number, or part of it on the rocker? I've never seen that. The one I was doing some restoring on had it on the frame rail behind the rear wheel and it was perfectly clear. However once the frame was sandblasted and powerdercoated it wasn't visible any more.

Is the RZ36 part of your VIN? That part doesn't make sense to me for a Beaumont VIN. I get rest of it though, the part with it being an SD hardtop.

That sure looks like a great project.

Interesting. I wonder what significance that part of the number has.

Did you look for a partial VIN on the top of the frame behind the rear wheel? I think you'll find one there. Seems to me it was passenger side but this was about 12 years ago, I could be wrong on which side.

When I rebuilt my 67 Beaumont, I found Three sets of numbers on the frame rails, two on the left outside rail behind the rear tire and the third was on the inside of the right frame rail before the upper control arm. 

I lightly sand blasted the entire frame especially around these alpha numeric sets. The front was very clean to begin with, however both are very visible once the primer and paint was applied.   

Good luck with you project

This same frame I am talking about also had numbers on the side of the left rail. It had a part number a date code and PONT, presumably for Pontiac, Michigan where it was made. At least reading up on it that's what I found out.

Yes it is amazing for where it was . the previous owner

took it apart for a redo. We had to piece it together to move it 

it sat in his moms garage since 1976 untouched.the only missing

parts are the door panels. No cracks in steering wheel ect other than all the exterior  chrome

small pits it?s good  the only thing that not original is the motor and it?s totally 

complete

Won't that be more than 11 to 1 with that dome? The stock 396/427 dome looks tiny compared to that one!
