Looks solid.  Needs a lot of work, especially that interior.  Looks like it's been sitting in the sun a lot.

I fixed the link.  It looks like a fairly solid survivor that's worked most of it's life.  Carlo's might like checking the photos out since he has the '75 made to look like a '73 Base Wagon.

That is pretty close to what we had growing up. No A/C and the 302 V-8. Could you imagine the family road trips from Northern Indiana all the way down to Northern Mexico??? Just INSANE.....LOL!!!!! My kids would flip if I tried pulling that on them.....Beer

We had similar experiences growing up, but we had a full-size Pontiac Parisienne (Canadian) wagon.  No options including no A/C, and six of us crammed in the two bench seats with the back filled to the max.  We did that many long trips including Ontario, Canada to Oklahoma City and from Ontario to the East Coast.  Today, my kids wouldn't put up with it, and neither would my wife (the no A/C would never work).

the Parisienne was sold in the US 83-86 from what wiki says, i thought the first year in the US it was a badged Bonneville then it went to Caprice with Pontiac F&R facia, but it may have been a P-chevy the whole time

we had an 87 Caprice Brougham and an 81 Bonneville, does that make a Parisienne ?

The Parisienne was the top of the line full-size Pontiac up in Canada since the 50s. It was basically like the Bonneville built the US just not as fancy. The Canadian Pontiacs were for years built on Chevy chassis and used Chevy engines. They eventually became pretty near identical to the Bonneviles by the early 80s except they still used Chevy engines. The 1982 to 86 Parisienes sold in the US from 83 to 86 was just a rebadged Caprice. So yeah you basically had one.

There's a 72 fastback with a base front clip out near me. I see it a couple times a year. Usually going past me the other way...
First couple times I saw it, I was wondering what it was.
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.
