According to analysts, 015 could be a record-setting year for American car sales, anking a Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate of over 18 million units. Those stellar numbers have prompted many journalists to capitalize on talk of reviving long-retired automotive brands. Within that conversation, ome of the most popular and heated discussion centers on Pontiac. While a revival of Pontiac is, t this point, ighly unlikely, t's hard to deny the passion and respect automotive enthusiasts continue to associate with the marque. That means cars like this numbers-matching Trans Am Super Duty, ne of the brand's most desirable creations, re well positioned to continue their reign at the top of the collector car market. A professionally restored head turner, his top notch Poncho is 1 of only 943 Super Duties produced for the 1974 model year. 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, t's your chance to become king of the muscle car hill!

BODYWORK

Previously owned by Pontiac enthusiast Neil Cofell, his first class Firebird is the beneficiary of a detailed, round-up restoration that made excellent us of a roster of NOS parts. The car's bodywork is excellent throughout, ith smooth, lat panels that are complemented by better-than-factory alignment. Naturally, hose panels wear a correct coat of Admiralty Blue 2-stage, hich has been decorated with appropriately awesome Trans Am call-outs. And today, ith unique visual sizzle that's as classy as it is aggressive, his top notch Super Duty is a highly desirable example of a major milestone in Pontiac history!

ENGINE

The heart of any muscle car is its engine, nd this Poncho's brawny Super Duty moniker is no misnomer. The largely hand-built SD-455, hich features significantly reinforced components, hares little more than a displacement number with its more common brethren. And this car's familiar turquoise mill complements a correct 490132 casting number with a correct "Y8" assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. At the top of the big engine, raditional 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, igh-flow cylinder heads that are capped with familiar, tamped steel valve covers. At the back of those covers, correct points distributor sequences fire through fresh Packard TV R Suppression cables. Spent gases are jettisoned through fully restored exhaust manifolds. A leak-free radiator, ervicing fresh hoses under new tower clamps and a familiar plastic shroud, ontrols heat. And finer details include: new decals, ew stamps, actory air conditioning, Delco-topped battery and a correct Delco brake booster.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

At the bottom of this slick, econd generation Firebird, olid floorpans reflect a decade of dry storage and easy living. Behind the mega mill, n original Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed hangs a correct "74 PQ" assembly tag opposite a matching partial VIN. That gearbox spins power to a tough 10-bolt axle that's branded with a correct "GY" assembly stamp. Below that stellar drivetrain, rebuilt Trans Am suspension, hich includes correct power steering, hicker sway bars, etter shocks and stiffer springs, ombines with standard issue power front disc and rear drum brakes. At the center of the car, throaty, rue-dual exhaust system hangs a transverse muffler in front of polished stainless tips. And everything rolls on a quartet of attractive Rally IIs, hich twist 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.

INTERIOR

When it comes to interior dcor, ontiac's '70s team was firing on all eight cylinders. While this coupe's insignia may be considered overkill, nd its horsepower rating might seem relatively modest compared to earlier muscle cars, here's no disputing the beauty of its design. Correct Parchment buckets are clean and crisp, asily defying the age of the car's restoration. Those seats are correctly framed in Blue carpet, lue shoulder harnesses and color-keyed floor mats. Between those mats, molded console plants a small shifter amid factory power windows and correct Delco AM/FM audio. Above that audio, warp-free dash frames detailed telemetry and factory air conditioning in a bright, ngine-turned instrument panel. In front of the driver, tilting steering column spins a black Formula wheel. And behind the passengers, lighted trunk hides a compact spare tire.
