The Pontiac Firebird was launched in 1967 along with the Chevrolet Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang. The name "Firebird" was previously used on several concept cars in the 1950's and 1960's. In March 1969, a $725 optional handling package called the "Trans Am performance and appearance package WS4", named after the Trans Am race series, was introduced. During its 35-year production run, the Firebird name plate has become one of the most recognized in the world. 1979 marked the 10th anniversary of the Trans Am. The model saw a restyled front end and a record sales year. This white/cream classic is an unrestored, unmolested beautiful survivor. Standard equipment includes power brakes, power steering and leather interior. Turn the key, feel the rumble and gaze out over the hood with its iconic "shaker" style and you will be taken back to 1979 in a hurry! This Pontiac Trans Am is located in our Milwaukee showroom.
