Thats a 3400... 38'* were dropped from the minivan line for 96...

My cousins Montanna with the 3400 would get up pretty good for its size too... FE2 suspension with level ride.... And it cruises 80mph so easy

Her husband told me once that he wished the Montanna had the same 3800 II as their 95 bonnie.... lol

Fun Fact to go along with that sentence:
When the Pontiac Transport Van was first introduced, the voiceover on the commercial was performed by Patrick Stewart.
