21-Years-Owned 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 4-Speed

This 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am was first delivered to Ernie Von Schledorn Pontiac Buick of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, and is powered by a 400ci V8 linked with a four-speed manual transmission and a Safe-T-Track limited-slip differential. The car is refinished in blue over black perforated vinyl, and equipment includes 15″ American Racing wheels, power steering, a stainless steel exhaust system, a JVC AM/FM/cassette stereo, and a heater. The current owner purchased the car in 2002, and maintenance in preparation for the sale included replacing the brakes, clutch, and coolant hoses as well as refurbishing the starter and radiator. This Trans Am is now offered by the seller on behalf of the current owner with Pontiac Historical Services documents, a window sticker copy, services records, and a clean Illinois title.
