1982 Pontiac J2000

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

The new J2000 model hit: ” The production J2000 carries an instantly recognizable twin grille styling treatment. Four models were available: Coupe, Sedan Hatch Back and Wagon. A specially equipped J2000 Coupe was set up to provide an EPA fuel economy rating of 47 highway miles per gallon.”

“On October 28, announcements of six Phoenix and two T1000 models, built to 1982 specifications, were made, The expanded assortment of X-cars was based on the elevation of the Phoenix SJ – formerly an option only – to separate model status, High-output excitement characterized this road-ready street machine, which featured an exclusive 2.8 litre (173 c.i.) H.O. V-6 engine; four-speed manual overdrive transmission; power steering; power brakes; rally gauge cluster with tachometer and bucket seats.”

1982 model year production = 547,271
