1974 Pontiac Trans Am

RARE 1974 Pontiac SD-455 4 speed Trans Am; 1 of 212 SD-455 4-speed Trans Am’s from the factory, Numbers Matching, PHS documented, Survivor with 60,857 miles.

This Special Trans Am was updated many years ago by the previous owner Dave Doern, aka“Mr. Pontiac”. Updates included the addition of Air Conditioning, the Limited Edition decal & striping package, Gold grill & headlight surrounds, Gold Honeycomb wheels, Gold engine-turned instrument panel and console trim, full gauges. The updates were inspired by Bill Mitchell’s SD-455 Trans Am Limited Edition car that appeared at the Chicago Auto Show in 1974!

Air Conditioning was not an option for the SD-455 engines with a 4 speed transmission but the previous owner added it along with some of the other options outlined below. This is truly a special Trans Am, owned by a Pontiac enthusiast.

The 1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455 cars were the very last of the high performance cars from the '70s and the history of the Super Duty is legendary.

The SD-455 has been accurately described as Pontiac's last stand and the last real muscle car. The SD-455 was a thinly disguised race engine: four-bolt mains, reinforced block, forged pistons, forged connecting rods, nitrided crankshaft, even a provision in the block for a dry sump oiling system.

The legendary 455ci super-duty engines were literally hand-built race engines, as an off-assembly-line operation and were only available for 1.5 years of production.
