According to some analysts, 2017 could be another record-setting year for American car sales, banking a Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate of over 17 million units. Those stellar numbers have prompted many journalists to capitalize on talk of reviving long-retired automotive brands. Within that conversation, some of the most popular and heated discussion centers on Pontiac. While a revival of Pontiac is, at this point, highly unlikely, it’s hard to deny the passion and respect automotive enthusiasts continue to associate with the marque. That means cars like this numbers-matching Trans Am Super Duty, one of the brand’s most desirable creations, are well positioned to continue their reign at the top of the collector car market. A factory-correct head turner that’s been restored as needed, this top-notch Poncho is 1 of only 943 Super Duties produced for the 1974 model year. And if you’re a Firebird enthusiast who’s searching for an exclusive F2 that you can literally purchase and drive straight to the show, it’s your chance to become king of the muscle car hill!

BODYWORK/TRIM

A clean F-Body that’s continuously turned heads for close to 45 years, this first class Firebird is a literal culmination of detailed maintenance and acute restoration. The car’s bodywork is solid throughout, with smooth, flat panels that are complemented by better-than-factory alignment. Naturally, those panels wear a correct coat of Admiralty Blue 2-stage, which has been decorated with appropriately awesome Trans Am call-outs. And today, with unique visual sizzle that’s as classy as it is aggressive, this top notch Super Duty is a highly desirable example of a major milestone in Pontiac history!

ENGINE

The heart of any muscle car is its engine, and this Poncho’s brawny Super Duty moniker is no misnomer. The largely hand-built SD-455, which features significantly reinforced components, shares little more than a displacement number with its more common brethren. And this car’s familiar Turquoise mill complements a correct 490132 casting number with a correct “Y8” assembly stamp and matching 122691 partial VIN. At the top of the big engine, traditional Trans Am induction funnels fresh wind in to a big Quadrajet carburetor and correct Pontiac intake. That intake sends a high-octane air/fuel mixture in to unique, high-flow cylinder heads that are capped with familiar, stamped steel valve covers. At the back of those covers, a correct points distributor sequences fire through 7mm AC Delco Premium Silicone cables. Spent gases are jettisoned through fully restored exhaust manifolds. A leak-free radiator, servicing pliable hoses under reliable screw clamps and a familiar plastic shroud, controls heat. And finer details include: correct decals, a correct Delco Moraine brake booster, factory air conditioning, a reproduction Delco battery and a deep-sump oil pan.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

At the bottom of this slick, second generation Firebird, undercoated floorpans reflect decades of dry storage and easy living. Behind the mega mill, an original Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed hangs a correct “74 PQ” assembly tag opposite a matching 122691 partial VIN. That gearbox spins power to a tough 10-bolt axle. Below that stellar drivetrain, a rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes correct power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power front disc and rear drum brakes. At the center of the car, a throaty, true-dual exhaust system hangs a transverse muffler in front of polished stainless tips. And everything rolls on a quartet of attractive Rally IIs, which twist 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.

INTERIOR

When it comes to interior décor, Pontiac’s ‘70s team was firing on all eight cylinders. While this coupe’s insignia may be considered overkill, and its horsepower rating might seem relatively modest compared to earlier muscle cars, there’s no disputing the beauty of its design. Correct Morrokide buckets are clean and crisp, easily defying the car’s age. Those seats are framed in correct Black carpet, correct Black harnesses and Firebird-themed floor mats. Between those mats, a molded console plants a small shifter behind correct Delco AM/FM audio. Above that audio, a warp-free dash frames detailed telemetry and factory air conditioning in a bright, engine-turned instrument panel. In front of the driver, a tilting steering column spins a black Formula wheel. And behind the passengers, a matted trunk hides a full-size spare tire.
