Description

The Pontiac Firebird was introduced in February, 1967, 5 months after its Chevrolet Camaro corporate twin was introduced. The Firebird, along with the Camaro, was GM’s answer to the astoundingly successful Ford Mustang, and were known as F-bodies. The Firebird would ultimately be offered in a few different variants, not the least of which was the successful and iconic Trans Am model.

The 455 engine available in the second generation Firebird Trans Am was arguably the last high-performance engine of the original muscle car generation. The 455 cu in (7.5 L) engine made its first appearance in the Firebird in 1971 as the 455-HO, which continued through the 1972 model year.

This top of the range variant of the Pontiac Firebird, provided with the 7.5L 455 engine, comes with red leather interior and appears to have been kept in very good condition. Its body is finished in white with its iconic blue firebird signature and has 60,000 recorded miles. Due to a strike in 1972 and tightening restrictions on vehicle emissions, production ended in 1976 with only 7,100 units of the 455 engine ever produced.
