Pontiac Astre Panel
Also offered as part of Pontiac’s subcompact lineup was the truck-like Astre Panel. Like the basic Astre, it was only available in Canada up until 1974, then rarely available in the U.S. from 1975-1977.
It was marketed as a truck and was spartan in every sense of the word. The Panel had just a driver seat but a passenger seat was an option. The seats were only offered in one color, pearl white. Door panel trims were black or green only. It also had hidden compartments under the load floor. The Astre Panel is one rare bird worth keeping.
