This 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am was the recipient of a frame-off restoration. The body was carefully reassembled during the restoration and finished in its factory Trans Am Code 75 Buccaneer Red exterior and factory red interior.

Born as one of 4,648 L75 455 cars from the factory, it is powered by a rebuilt 455ci HO V8 engine backed by an automatic transmission. All L75 455 cars came with an automatic transmission. Features a factory Shaker hood with 455-SD script, along with its factory 3-speed automatic transmission.

During the rebuilding of the engine, it was brought up to Super Duty standards with new rings, new cam bearings, new crank and connecting rods. It has a full roller top end with a timing chain, gears, COMP Cam roller lifters and push rods. It uses Edelbrock Performer heads with roller rockers, an Edelbrock Performer intake and Edelbrock 1406 4-barrel carburetor.

Additional specifications include factory air conditioning, power windows, factory AM/FM/8-track stereo, disc brakes, power steering, factory buckets and console, TA Rally tach and gauges, and factory dual exhaust.

This car features factory Trans Am spoilers and factory restored honeycomb-style wheels on period-correct BFGoodrich radial TAs.

The original Data Tag and VIN are still intact.

The car comes with original owners' manuals and Pontiac Historical Services paperwork, factory jack and original spare with factory bias-ply Polyglas GT tire.

It has been driven 1,659 miles since its completion.

In 1969, the first of the fire-breathing Firebird Trans Am's, named after the Sports Car Club of America's late 60's Trans-American racing series, debuted as a Firebird $725 option package and boasted a potent Ram-Air 400 V8 with heavy duty suspension, steering and brakes and was fated to be a one year only model which went on to keep the Pony Car flame burning strong throughout the 70's virtually all by itself, when most of the other muscle cars either disappeared or dropped their engine displacements! Pontiac had no part in that sell out for its high performance Trans Am motors during the 70's and maintained 400 or 455 cid V8's even as the Corvettes and Camaros dropped to 350 cid and the Mustang down to 302 cid by mid decade.

The car was obviously always well cared for and is remarkably unabused for a Trans Am! The paint is in quite exceptional condition and the very striking matching Red interior is in very clean condition throughout with no signs of wear.


This particular model must be driven to be fully appreciated - the car drives as good as it looks with no shakes or rattles with the considerable power of it's 455 4BBL V8 engine! There are no noticeable oil leaks, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool.


This is one very unique and rare and handsome muscle car and this must surely be one of the few unabused example's left available of this  legendary 2nd generation Trans Am!
