A 1975 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is the kind of classic we love. A
very well integrated design met with the still beating heart of an
American muscle legend. It only gets better with a stunning silver
coupe with a shimmering blue interior. And while all the colors are
factory-correct, your favorite part of originality will be the
numbers-matching 400 V8 under the hood.
Sterling Silver really does make this coupe look like precious
metal. It's the factory color, and it was recently treated to a
re-spray that you can instantly tell there was plenty invested in a
modern clearcoat and a professional hand applying it. The result is
that kind of shine that lives up to how you always dreamed a muscle
machine shout be. Plus, you get all the great Trans Am touches from
the factory body kit, to the "screaming bird" on the hood. There's
even the shaker hood, fender vents, and full-length rear spoiler.
But beyond getting all the iconic components right, this is
fundamentally a very nice coupe, with straight body panels and
doors that can be closed with confidence. It even has a shining set
of the correct Rally II wheels to make this factory-correct Trans
Am package complete.
If you thought the exterior color was shiny, just wait until you
open the door. The Bimini Blue vinyl lives up to its name by having
a shimmer like ocean water. There has been more investment here in
making sure the bucket seats, door panels, dash, headliner, and
center console are in stellar condition. Full instrumentation was
standard on Trans Ams, including the tach/clock combination. The
dials look great set in the iconic and aggressive machine-turned
instrument panel. Ahead of that the driver gets the three-spoke
sports steering wheel that should be quite familiar to Pontiac
fans. This one came quite well equipped from the factory with an
AM/FM stereo (now upgraded with a more current head unit) with
separate 8-track player, electric rear defrost, and air
conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold). All of this goes
to reinforce that these Trans Ams were great performance machines
that were also plenty comfortable for road trips.
The 400 cubic-inch V8 is this car's original, numbers-matching
motor, and it looks great in the exceptionally factory engine bay.
So when you lift the hood at car shows you'll love pointing out
features like the correct blue engine enamel on the block, and the
to the air cleaner, which inhales through the front despite the
ultra cool shaker hood. You'll even love the correct decals that
are in place like the famous "Keep your GM car all GM" on the
topper. Making big torque, this V8 moves the sporty coupe easily
with great noises coming from the distinctive split tailpipes out
back. It's a true cruiser with a TH350 three-speed automatic, power
steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of Goodyear Eagle GTII
tires at all four corners.
Complete with plenty of documentation, including the dealer
invoice, owner's manual, and maintenance receipts, it's good to
know you're getting this one from someone who cherished it as much
as you will. At this price, a numbers-matching, nicely restored
Trans Am may be a once in a lifetime car, so don't let this one
slip through your fingers. Call today!!!
