Long before SUVs were anything more than a concept, the noble station wagon was entrusted not only with simple family transportation but with, in effect, creating chapters of future motoring memories. After all, a sizable percentage of adults spent quite a bit of time ensconced in a vehicle a lot like this 1979 Pontiac LeMans Wagon on journeys ranging from simple errands to adventurous expeditions. This representative of a simpler, less chaotic time is running like a top and looking sharp.
Sizable aftermarket wheels pair with a trim, nostalgia-inducing exterior to make for a vehicle that will no doubt draw plenty of attention on the road. You just don't see wagons of any kind on the road very often anymore and this one is a particularly strong specimen of that bygone genre. It remains in original configuration and is thoroughly well-preserved, wearing a tastefully subdued cream yellow exterior. With its chrome roof rack on top and a Class III trailer hitch in the back, you can easily picture this evocative classic transporting its family to their destination with an array of luggage on top with some overflow items bringing up the rear. Tinted windows surround the sizable cabin, pairing with a spoiler mounted over the rear window to provide a sense of customization you'll rarely see in this niche. The color coordinated molding running the lengths of its sides adds still more distinction and appears nice and level as it transitions from fender to doors to rear quarter panel - a good indication that this classic's exterior alignment remains in fine shape.
The original brown vinyl interior is still in place and it's come through the past 40 years in strong fashion. Everything inside the doors is surprisingly fresh, with two rows of bench seating that show far less wear than you'd expect from a car of this era. The carpet lining the floor is in matching condition and as you take a look in back, you'll see the substantial storage space that makes this wagon far more than a novelty, but a practical, purpose-oriented vehicle. The level of functionality on hand here is pretty impressive, too - the array of factory gauges inside the instrument cluster all work just as intended, surrounded by a woodgrain panel that represents a styling hallmark of its decade and the air conditioning system is blowing with conviction to keep the cabin nice and comfortable. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo occupies the center of the dash to provide a more modern audio experience.
This Pontiac features a running condition that makes it well-suited for frequent driving. It's powered by a 4.9 liter V8 that fires up promptly with a turn of the key and is equipped with a 2-barrel carburetor to keep fuel consumption reasonable. The accompanying 3-speed automatic transmission shifts with slip free precision, so there'll be no qualms about getting the adventures started just as soon as you get this icon home. An added Flowmaster exhaust provides a noticeably richer note than the one this '79 left the factory with, while a new alternator helps up reliability. Power steering and power brakes that position discs up front provide effortless navigation and dependable stops as this double-take inducer roams the highway on its set of show-stopping 20" American Racing 5-spoke chrome wheels.
