The Astre was a knockoff of the Chevrolet Vega. It was sold in the U.S. from 1975-1977.
However, Canadians were able to buy an Astre since 1973.
It rolled into a new generation for 1974.
Like the Chevy, you could get a coupe, hatch, a coupe-wagon, and for the final year, a panel-truck type wagon.
Powering the Astre was a 2.3L Chevy I-4 up to 1976 and a 2.5L Pontiac I-4 for 1977. Three sporty models were offered.
These were the GT, the Formula, and the L’il Wide Track. each receiving various levels of handling and appearance upgrades. The Formula was even available with a Firebird-like hood decal.
