The 1973 Pontiac Trans Am is the finest TransAm that Pontiac ever built. The 1973 Trans Am is a Second Generation Firebird (2nd gen is from 1970 to 1981). Of the less than 5,000 that were built, the 455 SD (Super Duty) with a 4-speed manual transmission is one of the rarest birds out there as only 72 were produced. This is the American muscle car dream!

132152 / 1970 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmsk3es
This spectacular, 100% numbers matching 1970½ Trans Am Ram Air IV is one
of only 59 built with a 4-speed, and fully documented with a build sheet. A
life-long west coast car, this was one of only 24 RA IV cars built at the
Van Nuys assembly plant.
Gaps are exemplary, panel fit is very good, and this might be the most well
assembled early F-body I've ever seen. The Polar White paint matches the
factory finish exactly, and the decals are reproductions. Out back, the
ducktail spoiler fits beautifully and carries the correct TRANS AM
Simply selecting RPO 342 got you the famed 370-horsepower round-port Ram
Air IV engine, which delivered much more than simply an advertised 25 hp
over the standard D-port Ram Air III engine. Atop that intake and under the
solenoid-operated scoop, the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor makes its home.
The cylinder heads are 614 castings, the block is a correct WW unit, the
intake is a correct 97999 casting, and the unique Ram Air IV Exhaust manifolds have been beautifully
The Muncie M20 4-speed manual is the original, matching numbers piece,
while out back, the RA IV was the only Firebird to receive a 12-bolt rear
end as standard equipment (this one is packed with 3.73 gears and a Posi
for explosive acceleration). The heavy-duty power disc brakes have been
fully rebuilt, and correct F41-spec shocks are at all four corners. It's
finished off with a set of original date-coded Rally II wheels and
Firestone Wide Ovals.
This one sports its original code 211 Medium Bright Blue Vinyl interior.
The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but the
carpets are spectacularly original, as is the headliner. The trunk features
that fitted floor mat, as well as a full-sized spare tire with complete

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
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

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
