The 1974 Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am Super Duties were the very last of the high-performance cars from the ’70s. A total of 943 were produced for the 1974 model year. Of that number, only 212 were equipped with the 455 Super Duty and manual transmission, and this is one of them with less than 9,500 actual miles.

This three-owner car has been professionally restored and is in show condition with fresh paint to factory code and all-original sheet metal. Read More

This ’Cuda’s factory-original Hemi is still intact and features a high-duration hydraulic-lifter cam, 10.28:1 Read More
