8) ::)

What is that coupe ?  At first I thought it was a Chevy but they don't have those fender beads on top, plus those taillights, etc.

Tom, I thought Chevy too at first, but I'm still trying ti figure it out. I think Davy has solved it!

Close but notice that the Pontiac has a beltline around the back of the roof whereas the unknown car does not.  Also the Pontiac does not have the bead on top of the fenders.

But it does have those character beads on the lower part of the fender. Hmmm.  ???

Yes it does and those look to be identical.  I've looked at pics of all the GM cars of the era (LaSalle, Buick, Olds, Pontiac, Oakland, Chevy, Cadillac) and none of them are exact.  But they are close.  Maybe I'm forgetting one of the brands ?

Did Pontiac offer a Standard and Deluxe model like Chevrolet?

I'm thinking 33 Pontiac is correct.
