Sorry for responding this late, just saw this post! Glad to finally see your Pontiac, had heard a lot about it from your uncle whom I'd visited quite a few times.
If you're still looking for the spares you listed, I suggest you can still try and find atleast the kits and bushes on ebay or online US parts stores. The chances of finding any of them in India would be far too slim.

Hi Venkrish,

Lovely car. I would suggest that do not get into a full fledged restoration without doing adequate research and meeting few V&C owners at Hyderabad.

I would also strongly suggest you go and meet Mr. Mohammed and understand what needs to be done. I am sure he will offer a lot of good advice. He being an owner of cars/jeeps will be able to put things in the right perspective.

Cheers

Saw this beautifully maintained Pontiac Parisienne outside a hotelier's cottage in Lucknow.

Just this morning I was driving towards the highway when this car was standing by the Calcutta Delhi Highway. I stopped and got down to have a closer look. The owner was kind and allowed me to take few photos.

This car was accompanied by a large West Bengal registered Mercedes (LHD) with WBL XXXX registration plate. It was also a beauty.

Rahul

These images were shared on Facebook, from what I gather the car has been in a long term ownership and also has some ownership issues.

This looks beautiful - especially in the second picture. A perfect candidate for the Vintage & Classic Hard-Top Coupes in India thread.
