Launched in 1967, the Pontiac Firebird was Chevrolet's answer to the Ford Mustang and the distinctive 'Coke bottle' styling was seen by many as a cleaner, sharper and a bit more modern than the Mustang. In 1969, a 'Trans Am' performance and appearance package was offered named after the nationwide Trans Am race series. In February 1970 the second generation Firebird was launched and was offered with a 6.6 litre RAM Air engine that produced up to 370 HP. Chevrolet had managed keen product placement of the Firebird with a Green Firebird appearing in the movie "MQ" Starring John Wayne. This was the first of many appearances by the Firebird in movies leading right up to its iconic role in the Hal Needham Movie series, "Smokey and the Bandit" which sent sales of Firebirds into the Stratosphere and secured it as one of the most iconic movie cars of all time.

This well-restored, left-hand drive, 1975 Pontiac Trans Am is fitted with the 6.6 litre 400 CuI V8 and automatic transmission. The car is arrractively finished in the rare colour of Honduras Maroon with contrasting black vinyl interior and was imported by our Vendor in 2016 to join his private collection. As you might expect from a restored car it" starts, runs and drives as it should" and  "turns heads wherever you drive". Firebird Trans Am's are now becoming highly collectible with 'Smokey and the Bandit' replicas now regularly commanding £50k plus. This is an absolutely classic 70's 'Muscle car' offered at a sensible reserve.
