    Picked up this very nice 75 Poncho last week to park next to my 76 Olds.

    loaded up car with a ton of options. Just need to figure out some wheels for it as I’m not a fan of stock wheels!!!!!!

    car had comfortron A/C, factory air leveling suspension, tow package with posi rear axle, cruise, tilt, power windows, locks, seat and rear gate, rear window defog, 8 passenger, storage area carpet, litter container, Rally Gauge package, Rally wheels including the spare tire, courtesy lights, cornering lights, sport wheel,AM/FM 8 track player, and some some small minor options. Exact opposite of my Oldsmobile. It’s about as plain Jane as they come!!!!!!

    Color me green. I had the exact same car years ago. Of course the road salt had eaten it and the clam shell had given up. But man I loved that thing. Same color. Loaded. 400 2 bbl. Drove like a dream. I'd love another

    Very nice looking, but I assume you know that is a model year 1974 front end/header panel.

    The 120MPH speedometer is also a 1973-1974 feature.

    Still looks nice!

    The stencils are cool no doubt, but masking tape is cheaper ;-)

    Not by that much, considering it looks like you're using most of a whole roll there......... And what's your time worth?
