Sorry to say that according to a thread a couple of years ago, no one on this board has ever even seen one, there is some debate if any were actually built. I hope I m wrong, and one will pop up, but so far nothing. I have a copy of the anouncement brocure, but nothing more.

Even though this top image (from Bryan's site) is for the Sunbird it shows the RPO code for the wide track option.

The Pontiac reports don't show any Astre's for 75 being built with this option even though there is info on the net that around 3,000 were made.

The report does show 515 Astre's made with this option in 1977 but not for any other years. W50 is the RPO code. Not the lowest production total for an H body option but pretty darn close!

Here is a shot of a Cosworth with a very similar front spoiler, the owner doesn't know what it is from.

It doesn't look like it's mounted right on the cosworth. In the pics it looks like it replaces the lower valance.

If they do exist....I wonder what those side louvers would fetch on eBay?

Not to mention those lace wheels. I don't recall ever seeing a set of those on any other h-body.
