:king: I have been waiting to see a Sunburst on the site for some time now!

Great find

for those that don't know the Pontiac Sunburst was a re-badged Isuzu I-Mark sold only in Canada (the same as the Chevy Spectrum here in the US)

Good question. AFAIK the Sunburst had more profiled taillight seams, which this one doesn't seem to have at all.

Which is why I believe this one is rather a Spectrum, but the question still remains; was the Spectrum sold in Canada?

You have the resources of the entire internet at your disposal. Don't just stand there waving and get crackin'.

The sources I can find seem to imply the Spectrum was sold in Canada, but nothing definitive yet.

The Ward's Automotive Yearbook pages I've checked lumped the Sunburst and Spectrum together for Canadian sales. I'm hoping that Baube can find it in his guides.

Even if my books and Wikipedia are both saying that the Spectrum/Sunburst duo were in sale in Canada, my books are saying that the sales were marginal here and i believe it because i don't remember seeing any of them ( but yes, i saw Isuzu I-Mark ). my books sometimes gives sales numbers when available from the manufacturer but looks like GM forgot to return the call on those ones.....

I'm not sure what this one is; the taillights appear to be from a Spectrum, yet I can't find any Spectrum with that white symbol on the back (Sunburst had a similar one, but it was higher). Sunburst would also have a "PONTIAC" script on this side of the trunklid, which the car in question lacks... :think: :??:

The only years I copied were for 1986 and 1987. Ward's lists 2,596 combined sold in 1986 and 1,994 combined sold in 1987. So not many at all.

4600 for 2 years,just like you said, not many . by comparison ( i know, not same era, not same car but anyway, just for fun ) 7,798 Kia Rio/Rio5 were sold in Québec alone last year..

Apparently post-facelift Sunbursts and Spectrums had the same taillights; 1987 Pontiac Sunburst LE https://www.flickr.com/photos/48364370@N08/16159239710 1987 Chevrolet Spectrum CL http://www.cardomain.com/ride/485177/1987-chevrolet-spectrum/ , but the one in question is pre-facelift/from 1986, yet has Spectrum taillights, so I'm guessing it is a Spectrum, although the white script on the back is throwing me... Maybe it's a dealer sticker? :think:

Assuming this is a Spectrum, it's a 1986, as the show was filmed in Vancouver, whereas in 1985 the Spectrum was only available in east-USA.
