Classic Car Overview

This 1978 Pontiac Phoenix is a distinct way to arrive on the classic car scene. And because it has V8 power, a custom A/C interior, and an overall driver-oriented style, youll be talking about more than just how this is a rarer brother to the Chevy Nova. This shares the same silhouette as the Novas, and so you get that same appeal of a sleekness that just seemed destined for V8 power. And the Phoenix arguably had the more aggressive look with the split grille and a power dome in the hood that flowed all the way up front. And the Rally II wheels are another great visual link to Pontiacs muscle car tradition. The paint is a respray of the factory-correct Sundance Yellow. It does the right job of showing off good body panels but it never gets too glossy. Instead, it just has the right aged-in style of a good driver-ready classic. Theres a nice hint of black with the B-pillars, rear bumper insert, mudguards, and rear spoiler. It all makes for an attractive car that was also made to cruise. The interior shows off some more flair than the exterior without getting outlandishly wild. For example, the upholstery has the fresh look of a more recent investment. Black with yellow piping would be the kind of thing wed expect on a wild muscle car, but here, you also recognize its just coordinating with the exterior colors. In fact, what youll appreciate is the vintage style down to details like the full wood-like trim and working dome light. Good fundamentals like the carpeting, headliner, and dash make this very inviting, and thats why it makes for a great classic driver. Plus, this one is really built around you. A center console tilted towards the driver, high-back front bucket seats, and a sports steering wheel on a tilt column are the kind of features we all want but few of us get in a vintage car. And there are also well-integrated upgrades that make this a better cruiser like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and R134a air conditioning. Under the hood is where this Pontiac is pure Chevy power, and thats a good thing. The 305 cubic-inch V8 is known to be a hardy motor. So this is a solid cruiser from day one. Of course, these small blocks also have a great reputation for easy and affordable upgrades, and so you may choose to go beyond just the new shining valve covers. But before you think about fulfilling your muscle car dreams, you may want to appreciate just how well this one drives right now. You have great cruiser features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering power brakes (with a newer booster), front discs, and wide Cooper Cobra tires. The Pontiac X-bodies are a rarer sight, and the Phoenix name was only applied to them for a few short years. So You are looking at true rarity in a true cruiser package. So if you want to really drive your classic, you know this one is irresistible. Call today!!!
