For Sale or Trade When was the last time you saw one? This time-capsule is an incredible survivor. Purchased new by Susan Clark on April 22, 1976 at Hoffman Oldsmobile in East Hartford, Connecticut, for a total of $5810. It comes with original dealer Car Credentials Folio, bill of sale, owners manual. While most examples of this era had a 4-cylinder engine, this Startfire GT has a surprisingly peppy Buick V6 motor. Designed to be a sporty performance version of Starfire subcompact car, the Starfire GT was fitted with a larger engine at the factory to provide more power and quickness. Under the hood this GT is powered by the Buick 231ci V6 engine with an automatic transmission. The General Motors platform that gave us the Chevrolet Vega and Pontiac Astre also underpinned a series of models with more sporting intentions. By the mid-1970s GM was battling issues with the Chevy Vega, particularly with engine reliability and body corrosion. The not-inconsiderable investment that GM made in the “H” platform meant that the General needed to build a few more models off the design in an effort to recoup that investment. As a result of that plan, Chevrolet produced the Monza and Monza 2+2, Buick had the Skylark, Pontiac offered the Sunbird and Oldsmobile sold the Starfire GT.
