There were 2,116 of this model year made. This is a Pontiac Trans-Am Firebird with 455-HO (high output) V-8 with Ram Air Hoodscoop and a Muncie M-21 4-speed with Hurst linkage. It also has a functional, solenoid actuated shaker hood scoop intake.
To the best of our knowledge, this second generation T/A (beginning in 1970) was the first production American Sports car to incorporate all of the listed options below on the same car.
- Front Air Dam spoiler
- Wheel well spoiler
- Rear deck lid spoiler
- Under hood side air extractors
- Functional ram-air hood scoop
- Aerodynamic side mirrors
A featured car video is in the works as we are planning out the schedule to interview the owner of this Firebird. Even though it is not running, you will get a good view of the car in all its dusty glory. ‘Cuda Brothers has come across many car owners who let their cars sit for years in small garages, barns, and even outdoors. These cars have not seen the light of day for many years. At least this car owner had room for the car inside a garage and understands the true value of this American Muscle car. We will hear his side as to why he would let this car sit untouched for so many years.
We look forward to keeping people informed and entertained along the way. If we motivate someone to take that classic muscle car out of the garage where it has been sitting for years, all that much better.
Enjoy the Ride,
