This 1975 Pontiac Astre V8 Swapped, Clean, and The Cure For The Common Vega


This 1975 Pontiac Astre V8 Swapped, Clean, and The Cure For The Common Vega

If you have been looking for something a little different, our man Rocco has you covered. He is the guy that dug up this sweet 1975 Pontiac Astre station wagon thats for sale in LA. The little wagon has already been V8 swapped (like every Vega left on earth) but the engine that is in it looks 100% stock save for a Krylon rebuild in red. The seller reports that the car is really solid and only has one noticeable area of rust on the lower portion of the front fender. He does not say specifically what the engine is but it’s a small block Chevy as you will see below.

The Pontiac Astre was that division’s version of the Vega and while it was identical to the other Vega variants, it did sport the classic Pontiac split grill that was part of the brand’s identity for more than half a century. The pictures are light on this one but the car appears to be a solid little package and one that you can steal for like $2,000. It’ll need an interior, more horsepower, better paint, and some other junk but at the end of the day, this is a car you could really turn into something neat.

Thoughts? Chad may already be on his way over to buy it.

    This thing is very cool. Nobody make a decent sized wagon anymore. I would commute in this thing during the summer months. Would convert it to five lug and install some bigger wheels and tires.

    “Like every Vega left on Earth”… WRONG!!! I know where’s a never driven, never titled, single-digit-miles ’76 Vega STILL IN THE SHOWROOM of a long-closed Chevrolet dealer 🙂 …

    This looks like a Vauxhall Cavalier estate after a front end collision with a wall – crush the fugly mofo out of general principles of decency!
