“The cockpit is furnished with Carmine Red vinyl high-back bucket seats and a color-coordinated rear bench, matched with the door panels, dash, and carpeting,” the listing states. “The instrument panel is trimmed with engine-turned aluminum. Additional features include an Alpine AM/FM/CD sound system, air conditioning, cruise control, courtesy lighting, a window defroster, a visor vanity mirror, and a tilt steering column.”

Under the hood of this Pontiac is a 6.6-liter V8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor. The engine is paired with a console-shifted three-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential.
