Very little is being reproduced for flathead-era Pontiacs, nearly all of which is mechanical parts. What are you looking for?

It will be much easier to decode your trim tag if you give us the numbers on it, as opposed to listing all of the possible combinations. There are no production numbers for the various body styles, only total production numbers for bodies and engines.

The first two digits of the Style No should be the same as the model year, 2527B is the Business coupe. The 25 series were six cylinder only and based upon the Fisher A-body shared with Chevrolet. It is likely that the rear roll pans you reference would fit your Pontiac.

The paint code is Baffin Bay Blue Metallic, the D suffix indicates that your car's fenders were painted to match the body. The body stripe is Argent Silver and the wheels were also body color. The interior trim was likely to be mohair, but I will have to do some digging to give you the correct name and color. A quick check of my parts book showed only one available upholstery number for the series 25 business coupe.

I will be away until early next week, so you won't hear from me before then.

Hello pontiac39, Pete has given you some good info but it is not certain that roll pan would fit, although it would probably be close enough to modify to fit. Here is what to look for:

Note that GM cars were essentially built in two halves--Fisher Body built the body and the car division built the frame and running gear and sourced the front sheetmetal, fenders and running boards, etc. It is well known that Fisher Bodies were used by multiple divisions and had some interchange, so an A body Chevy and Pontiac often share doors, roof and glass parts and related hardware and trim. This is very helpful to Pontiac people. BUT since the frame was different anything related to connecting the body to the frame is likely different. Often close in shape and size, but not necessarily the same. Sometimes can be modified to fit, but just be aware it is not likely identical. Good luck, Todd C

Really appreciate all the info, seems as if pontiacs of this era are fairly rare, Thanks Pete!
