Welcome from another 36 Pontiac owner!

 

That looks like a Deluxe Eight four door touring sedan (sedan with trunk), with "Taupe Plush" (mohair velvet) upholstery, and Weynonah Maroon paint.

 

There are 2 clubs for these early Pontiacs, Early Times Chapter http://www.earlytimeschapter.org , and Oakland Pontiac Worldwide https://www.oaklandpontiacworldwide.com/ .

 

Early times chapter in particular used to have a bunch of good info online. They are apparently re-doing their website, but you can still get some of it from the Internet Archive:

Parts list (though I recommend you find a complete "master" parts book (avoid anything called a "wholesale parts manual"). It can and probably should be a few years newer as they cover several years. There were a whole bunch of mid year changes in 1936:

Here is a list of style numbers. They are a big deal in Pontiac, because they tell you what you have. For instance, there were at least 3 different bodies in 1940....

Post a picture of your car sometime! Here's a picture of my 1936 Master Six:

It is indeed a Pontiac Eight 4 door Touring Sedan Style # 2819 and was or is painted in Perugia Blue. It's the heaviest of all 36 Pontiac's.

Note that after the middle of the year was called the Deluxe Eight 4-door Touring Sedan, but still a Style 2819

Thanks everyone for the help.  Yeah have been trying to figure this tag out but I didn't realize Pontiac information was so hard to come by even with the internet. NOw I know for sure what I have and plan to restore all original for the 2021. 

 

Regards,

V means it has the optional right hand sun visor. D is for "duco" paint (lacquer) on the fenders. That implies they are the same color as the body (I think).

 

Yes, theres a badge. IIRC it says "Pontiac 8".

 

Hood ornaments are different between the 6 and the 8.

Dose is a portion of medicine or of a disease.  Does someone have what you are looking for is the  question.

Damn spell check.

Good luck on your search.😊
