For Sale: 1974 Pontiac Firebird in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

It's hard not to like this 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. After all, it has a beautiful fastback design, there are plenty of vintage details, and it has even been upgraded to the big 455ci V8 under the hood.


This one really gets the Trans Am style correct with all your favorite pieces, like the shaker hood, fender vents, flared fenders, and big rear spoiler. It was born Buccaneer Red, and this still has a classic lacquer application today. So while some people may see room for improvements, there's also something quite cool about a finish that makes people suspect you have a survivor. Plus, the overall look of this car is quite deliberate. For example, 1974 was the year for black bumper trim, and so this one utilizes a coordinating Trans Am graphics package that includes black accenting and bold black hood bird. Even the additions coordinate, like the clack rear window slats. And the gold lattice wheels look great against all the gold in the graphics package.


The interior looks quite distinctive with its white upholstery and headliner. Plus, with red on the carpeting, dash, and even the seatbelts, the full package still coordinates with the exterior. This has the right features, like power windows, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it has been upgraded to R134a, but it will need servicing to blow cold again.) This is a car built for driving, and so you have high-back bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a sports steering wheel on a tilt column. And Pontiac's gauges were some of the best around with plenty of easy-to-read dials set in the stylish machine-turned panel.


The 455 cubic-inch V8 under the hood fills the engine bay with American muscle, and everyone gets drawn in by the shaker air cover. This motor is a younger addition and it has been under good care. So you get an overall presentation that you can be proud to show off. The coupe inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it makes a ferocious growl out of the newer stainless dual exhaust. You'll love this package on the road, as a tip of the throttle will feel like diving into a well of bottomless torque. And the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes come together to make this power Pontiac an all-around good cruiser.


Complete with build receipts, this Trans Am lets you enjoy Pontiac performance to the fullest. Call today!!!
