Yeah a more market liberal right would have gone down in flame in most of those areas, at least in that era.
That's where the MRP kicked in I suppose, all those very Catholic industrial workers in the Pas-de-Calais area, for instance. That weird electoral base that was post-1951 MRP of Zentrum voters in Alsace, Vendeean and Brittany Catholic peasants, Eurofederalists and right-wing workers.

I'll just deposit this hereabouts.
A minor update to this, as I've found some descriptions of the 1960s inquiry into the administrative divisions of Norway. Turns out their plan was quite boring, it just involved merging the Agders and changing the boundary between the Trøndelags slightly, but there were some vague notes as to what might be needed in the future which I've worked off of. Still not sure if the Oslo region should be rearranged as well, but I think it works this way.

Here's a new-old project, some of you may remember it. You can't really tell from this map, but the electoral system used here was in the finest Hungarian tradition, which is to say it was utterly, utterly mental. I'll provide more of an explanation when the writeup is done.

Two PR systems and two rounds single-member seats? Please tell me they also had turnout requirements or something insane like that.

Oh boy, you're in for a treat.

If the runoff results for a single-member seat were tied between two candidates, the seat was officially declared vacant - same for seats that failed to meet the turnout requirements in both rounds.

Oh, and the PR seats were distributed by a scorporo-type system.

It's basically what happens if you take the worst parts of the French, German and Mattarellum-era Italian electoral systems and sprinkle on a bit of standard post-communist Eastern European insanity on top of that.

I've now finished the metropole for 1967. I don't expect the DOM-TOM results to be any easier to get a hold of this time, and frankly it's quite depressing how they're just shunted to the side in all the sources except geoelections, so I'm going to put this out now.

As you can plainly tell, this was the most anti-Gaullist legislature elected during de Gaulle's actual presidency, with the left and the centre just about holding a majority of the Assembly between them. The introduction of direct presidential elections had begun to cast a shadow over the party landscape, with both the centre and the left being consumed by the question of how to consolidate their support and form broader alliances. Some wanted a coalition between the centrists and the centre-left (Gaston Defferre, the SFIO mayor of Marseille, was a leading figure in this camp, as was the Radical press baron Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber), and some wanted the PCF and SFIO to patch up their differences and present a credible alternative to capitalism and the Fifth Republic itself (this was the main raison d'être of the PSU, and drew support from both the quickly radicalising former Prime Minister Pierre Mendès-France and SFIO dissident Alain Savary - both PSU members in 1967, though Savary would later return to the SFIO). François Mitterrand, whose position was likely somewhere in between the two poles, managed to take a significant first step by uniting the non-Communist left under the banner of the Federation of the Democratic and Socialist Left, which made runoff pacts with the PCF and PSU.

The centre, too, was reforming, with the old MRP and most of the anti-Gaullist moderates forming a new coalition under the name "Progress and Modern Democracy", whose main policy goal was European integration. This set them apart from the Gaullists, who were thoroughly Eurosceptic (in the old sense, i.e. actually being sceptical of European institutions as opposed to actively wanting to end all cooperation), and would eventually lead them to join forces with the Independent Republicans and the non-FGDS Radicals to form the Union for French Democracy in the 1970s - even as the left was finally uniting. But that's all some ways off in 1967.

Was there just no reapportionment during the de Gaulle era? The boundaries look precisely the same (to my eyes, anyways) as the 1958 map you'd done earlier. Even Paris seems to be identical, the city and both courrones.
