1973 Super Duty Trans Am Exhaust, open hood scoop, Gardner Exhaust, SD455, idling
Here is an excerpt from Popular Hot Rodding Magazine (September 1982) full page write-up about the 73-74 Super Duty Trans Am.
The first and last paragraphs:
"Probably one of the most awesome engines ever produced by Pontiac was the Super Duty which was built in two versions, 1961-1963 and 1973-1974. The Super Duty engine was ahead of its time churning out great doses of torque and horsepower. When combined with the Trans Am body style it made for an unbeatable combination of power and handling.
All Super Duty Trans Ams came with the 8 1/2-inch 10-bolt rear end, and with the optional 3.42 to 1 rear gearing were capable of running 13.90-second quarter mile times. If you're interested in picking up a Super Duty T/A today, they run between $5,000 and $10,000 depending on condition. If you can't afford one, pretend you can and take a test ride. Once you've been in one, you won't forget what they look, sound, and feel like."

1972 Pontiac Trans Am 455 HO Four-Speed Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this 1972 Pontiac Trans Am 455 HO. It's
equipped with a 455 V8 that's pumping out 300 horsepower and 415 LbFt of
torque. All that power is funneled back through a four-speed manual trans
to a posi rear end. This really is one of the last great cars of the muscle
car era. Thanks for watching and commenting, I appreciate it!

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid

The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black

If you missed the opportunity to take home our RKM Performance restored
SD-455 a few months ago, this badass Cameo Firebird is your second chance
to become king of the muscle car hill!
Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility, and delivered to
John Kralovetz via Bill Mowbray Motors in Brownsville, Texas, this awesome
F2 Trans Am's factory correct appearance is simply spectacular. Thanks to
spending most of its life in the warm and dry climate of the Southwestern
United States, the car's rounded body was fairly straight when its
restoration began; and given that body's distinct lack of rust, it should
come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock solid.
Of course, by the looks of this Pontiac's super smooth finish, someone
must've spent weeks alone blocking and sanding every one of its panel in
hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once the car's correct
coat of Cameo White urethane was sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell,
decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted
Screamin' Chicken hood decal, I'd say they definitely accomplished that
This car's highly detailed SD-455, which hangs a correct 490132 casting
number and a November (K) 11th (11) of 1972 (2) casting date behind a
correct XD engine stamp, has been bored .030 over, completely balanced and
fully rebuilt to all its showroom glory. At the top of that big engine, a
traditional Trans Am underhood induction system feeds fresh air to a
correct 4-barrel carburetor that's bolted to a correct Pontiac intake. That
intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique, high flow cylinder
heads which have been equipped with Crane 1.65 roller rockers, high quality
ARP rocker studs and traditional stamped steel valve covers. And those
heads utilize a nodular iron crankshaft, Clevite main bearings, Clevite rod
bearings, ARP Speedpro pistons and rings, and an NOS "Y" camshaft to create
rocket-like combustion. Spark for that combustion is provided by a
traditional points distributor which shoots fire through correct Packard TV
R Suppression wires. Waste from that combustion is handled by fully
restored Exhaust manifolds which roar
into a stainless true dual Exhaust
system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator
which is hooked to fresh hoses via correct tower clamps and a correct
plastic fan shroud.
Behind that monster motor a virtually indestructible GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission, which wears a
1973 (73) Super Duty-specific (P2Q) tag and a correct partial VIN, sends
power to a familiar 10 bolt Safe-T-Track rear end that does a great job on
both the back roads and the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain a
rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway
bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling.
At the center of the car, a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system utilizes an X-pipe crossover and
welded Magnaflow mufflers to bark out a deep, vintage roar. And all this
road ready hardware rolls on a restored set of Pontiac Rally II wheels
which spin proven 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around pristine arrowhead
In terms of interior décor, Pontiac's 70s team was firing on all eight
cylinders. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every
bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats, like-new
carpet, which is carefully protected by thick rubber mats, displays no
fading or unraveling; and between those seats, a molded black console props
an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome shifter and a factory correct
8-track player. At the sides of the car, hard to find door panels hang
pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. And
in front of the driver, an optional tilt steering column spins a black
Formula steering wheel around an engine turned instrument panel, sliders
for the car's climate system and a correct Delco AM radio.
If your definition of classic Detroit muscle is a highly accurate,
beautifully presented, meticulously crafted Pontiac, it's your lucky day!
