Welcome
It is nice to see your interest in a Canadian product. I am however curious why you need a hi-res images. Are these image to be used for any business venture?

Hi & thanks for the welcome. I kind of wanted to keep things on the down low, but we are set to release a 1/64 scale version of the 1967 Acadian Canso very soon. I just wanted to double check my reference one more time before we hit production.

You can see our other cars here, www.M2Machines.com

Thanks,
Sean

Why a 67?

I would be more inclined to purchase a 66. Same body style but cooler louvers and cleaner grill.

And I am expecting a little backlash on this:devil:

:yes:Check out this book "Nova SS" @1997 by Steve Statham, pages 59-61, shows several HD pic views of a very nice gold 1967 Acadian Canso SD.
You could look at it at your local Barnes & Noble or Books A Million bookstores. You could just Google "Nova SS by Steve Statham", click appropiate link, and look at it online.

:cool:Also, you can just Google "1967 Acadian Canso SD" and you will see a link to Jay Leno's garage with his 1967 Acadian Canso SD online.

Or you can spot one for sale on cars-on-line.com.:rolleyes:

Lots of ways for a computer savy California boy to do this!:D

Just a heads up that the gold Acadian in Steve Statham's book is a Canso Sport Coupe not a Canso Sport Deluxe. There were numerous trim and badge differences between the two. Beautiful looking car!

Like I said in the other post today, you've got a sharp eye for details!:yes:
Oh, by the way, you have that book don't you?
Gary
Yup, I do and numerous others. Do you have Doug Marion's book 'Chevy II Nova'? It has many glaring errors, but also tons of info on production, options, engines, plus some great pictures. Worth getting.

:yes:Bob,

I do have Doug Marion's book "ChevyII Nova". Like you said it lacks a few things, like not all the MSRPs and RPOs, etc., but has great Nova pics!

I don't have Steve Statham's book "Nova SS" :no: but I plan on adding it to my collection soon (2-3 shelf bookcases, 36"x48", hardbacks, paperbacks, manuals, for Camaros, Chevelles and Novas/Acadians, I love them all).:D

Another book, "standard catalog of Chevrolet 1912-1998-2nd [email protected] by Ed Kowalke or the 1st ed. 1990 - "standard catalog of Chevrolet 1912-1990" has all the models, RPOs, MSRPs, engine stamp info and a lot of other facts, it is very informative!:cool:

I didn't mean to hijack this thread by Sean72 fro M2Machines.com and his request for some image pics of emblems for the 1967 Canso SD.
Would AcadianBill's car pics posted today fill the bill?:turn:

Bill's car is a 1966 L79 Sport Coupe....like rare! Quite a few trim differences between it and a 1967 Sport Deluxe. Might be difficult to determine what generic trim/emblems from the 66 were carrried over to 67, plus the items that were specific to the 67 SD.

The red car you linked to has chevyII door panels and a few other parts missing. The "Acadian" hood script, "Sport Deluxe" bar emblem on the glovebox (same as the one on the rear quarter under the Canso script), and it should have the square V8 emblems. '65 and '66 Acadians and Beaumonts had the same square V8 emblems, the '67's had the rectangular ones.
Dan
Here's a pic of the door panel of a '66 Canso (SD was the same).
