There are thousands of special cars on eBay, but some are more special than others. This 1974 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with the Super Duty 455 is an iconic example from the muscle car era, a car that some feel is the greatest Firebird ever made. Coming at a time when emissions and crash regulations were crippling the way companies engineered cars, Pontiac employed their best to create a Firebird faster than all other American cars, all the while still fitting within regulations.
This Trans Am looks sharp from every angle and has the artistic “Screaming Chicken” on the hood, all done in a color scheme that matches American racing colors—what better combination for America’s fastest car for 1974? Combine that with the four-speed manual (one of 212 built) and the documented 15,250 miles on it, and this could be among the top hardtop muscle cars in the country.
But here’s the most important item—the price. The seller has it for sale at $149,900. A potential buyer made an offer, which was declined. This dealership is known for high-end cars with astronomical prices, and most collectors prefer the rarer 1973 version. As far as cars that are sharp-looking, have a great V8 engine, and can be bought for less than $150,000, take a visit to your local Aston Martin dealership, then, ask yourself which car you’d really rather have.
