Chevrolet - Astro II (XP-880)

The Astro II, revealed at the 1968 New York Auto Show was less extreme in its styling than Astro I. Astro II was designed primarily to showcase its rear-mounted powertrain application. Unlike the Astro I, Astro II had doors to access the passenger compartment. The rear compartment hatch still lifted up - this time, to provide access to the engine compartment. The front compartment was designed as a storage area.
