Description for Pontiac Firebird 1974

eBay template information@RKMotorsCharlotte. com 5527 Lakeview Road. Charlotte. NC. 28269. US 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Super Duty National Award Winning 1 of 212 Trans Am Super Duty 455 SD V8 4 Speed Year: 1974 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: White Mileage: 15250 Transmission type: 4 Speed Manual Engine: 455 Super Duty V8 Interior color: Blue Vehicle info By now you've probably realized that RK Motors Charlotte employs quite a few diehard Pontiac fans. I mean. after all. RKMC does attract people who bleed 100 octane racing fuel; and Pontiac. at its core. was completely dedicated to selling outrageous metal to serious gearheads. So naturally. we can't help but melt like a hot tire in a staging lane when we find a car like this investment grade Trans Am Super Duty. A concours-restored national award winner. this numbers-matching Poncho is 1 of only 212 1974 Super Duty coupes equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission. And if you're a Firebird enthusiast who's searching for an exclusive F2 that you can literally purchase and haul straight to the show. it's your chance to become king of the muscle car hill!Sold new at Mall Pontiac in Dayton. Ohio. and claiming a mere 15. 50 original miles. this restoration-fresh Trans Am is simply spectacular. With a two-owner body that seems to have been fairly straight when the restoration began. it should come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock-solid. By the looks of that body's smooth finish. Super Duty expert Steve Schappaugh probably spent weeks blocking and sanding every one of its panel in hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once those panel's correct coat of Cameo White two-stage was decorated with standard Trans Am call-outs. he definitely accomplished that goal. 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!Now. before we dive into specifics. I'll go ahead and breakdown this white hot coupe's VIN and cowl tag.

Sales were brisk and new 'low speed' crash mandates required that the car either be completely redesigned or jump on the bandwagon of hideous and hastily done nose jobs that were creeping into every automaker's showroom. Instead of bowing to cost. Pontiac assembled a talented engineering staff which managed to blend both functionality and style into the well-integrated profile you see here. At the front of that profile. a 'black bar' nose hangs a standard screamin' chicken emblem between clean headlights. clear parking lamps. familiar Pontiac grilles and a road-hugging spoiler. At the top of that nose. a screamin' chicken hood centers an "SD-455" branded shaker in front of pristine greenhouse glass that's framed in bright stainless trim. At the sides of that hood. conservative door handles and small sport mirrors reflect traditional fender vents and correct fender flares. And at the back of the car. a subtle spoiler highlights clean tail lights. chrome exhaust tips and a second 'black bar' bumper. The heart of any muscle car is its engine. and this Poncho's brawny Super Duty moniker is no misnomer. These largely hand-built monsters. which feature significantly reinforced components. share little more than a displacement number with their more common brethren. And this car's highly detailed SD-455. which hangs a correct 490132 casting number and January (A) 09th (09). 1974 (4) casting date behind a correct "W8" engine stamp and matching partial VIN. has been completely rebuilt to its original glory. At the top of the big engine. traditional Trans Am induction funnels fresh wind into a big Rochester carburetor and correct Pontiac intake. That intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique. high-flow cylinder heads that are equipped with familiar. stamped steel valve covers. And those heads utilize a roster of high performance internals to create rocket-like acceleration. That acceleration is sparked by a traditional points distributor. which sequences fire through fresh Packard TV R Suppression cables. Spent gases are handled by fully restored exhaust manifolds. which roar into correct. true-dual tail pipes. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator. which services fresh hoses via new tower clamps and a familiar plastic shroud. Aesthetically. this Trans Am's first class engine bay is 100% ready for show. The mighty mill displays a slick coat of correct Pontiac Turquoise all the way from its intake to its oil pan. The car's fenders. firewall and hood are covered in a smooth layer of GM Satin Black. And niceties such as new decals. new stamps. a Delco battery and a fresh Delco Moraine brake booster can be found in all the right places. At the bottom of this slick. second generation Firebird. solid floorpans reflect years of easy living. Behind the mega mill. a correct Borg Warner T10 4-speed. which hangs its typical 1304065903 casting number below a correct partial VIN. sends power to a sturdy 10-bolt rear end. 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. And at the center of the car. a Gardner true-dual exhaust system barks out a deep. vintage roar. All this road ready hardware rolls on an attractive set of Pontiac Rally II wheels. which spin correct. but weathered. GR70x15 Uniroyal Steel Belted Radials. And everything under this killer classic is restored. clean and ready to roll. When it comes to interior dcor. 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. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple. firm. and look every bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats. like-new carpet is protected by color-keyed floor mats. And between those seats. a molded console props an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome Hurst shifter and correct Delco radio. At the top of the car. a stain-free headliner stretches tightly between fresh shoulder belts. At the sides of the car. hard to find door panels hang pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. In front of the driver. a fixed steering column spins a black Formula wheel around an engine-turned instrument panel. And behind the passengers. a fully restored trunk hangs a fresh decklid decal above a full-size spare tire. Not surprisingly. significant honors back up this F2's "award-winning" claim.
