1976 Firebird Trans Am Will Highlight Your Pontiac Collection

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

With just a little elbow grease and regular maintenance this could be an awesome classic cruiser or drag racing beast.

The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is possibly one of the most iconic cars in American automotive history because of its flamboyant style, big V8 engines, and film screen time. Whether its a jet-black bootlegging racer or a bright red show car, these fiery pony cars built a name for themselves as America’s favorite classic automotive outlaw. The second generation is typically the one people talk about when you hear the Firebird Trans Am name. There is an excellent reason for this as the car was essentially the last pony car to even try to look good during the dark ages of American performance automobiles. This car is a beautiful example of the lengths Pontiac was willing to go to to keep the American automotive dream alive.

You may have already guessed that this is a pristine 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am coated in bright red paint to show off its wings. Under the hood is a massive 455 ci V8 engine which was just about the biggest V8 you could find in its day. On top of the vertical displacement, you’ll also notice that this was one of the most potent cars at 200 horsepower, which is almost 100 more than the Mustang and about 50 more than the Camaro. It seemed that the Mustang was on track to lose the pony car war against the Firebird for the first time. All of that power is transferred through a four-speed manual transmission which was the most engaging and quick shifting gearboxes.

Just like any classic car in the GM lineup, you’ll need to put some work into the car as it sports 69,985 miles. That’s a pretty low number for a vehicle that’s been around this long, and some simple maintenance work should do the trick. But, of course, this car is the best quality you can find for a vehicle like this one. The engine runs well, the exterior is unmolested by rust, and the interior shows no tear or crack. This is an excellent purchase for any classic car enthusiast looking for a fun project and a fantastic platform.
