Pontiac Astre was the sister car to the Chevy Vega. As such, it was saddled with the 140 ci aluminum engine that proved so troublesome in the Vega. This was the last year for that engine in the Astre...it would be replaced by the 151 ci "Iron Duke" cast iron 4 cylinder. This is a very unusual car...first, it has little rust, probably because it's always been a Florida car! Next, as a base sedan, one doesn't expect lots of accessories..but this one has it...automatic, power steering and power brakes..AND A/C! The engine has been "sleeved" and works fine. Seldom seen, Astres with this equipment are even more rare.
