1973 Super Duty Trans Am
Some info on this car , I purchased it in Feb 1987 for $7,000. When I purchaed this car the SD455 motor was rarely spoke of even in Pontiac crowds. The car is originaly Brewster Green but was painted white back in the mid to late 70's thats when the large and small birds were added and yes that would be wrong but that is the way the person who painted it wanted it. The condition of the paint today is not great but this car is not a restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with trailered cars, I am not afraid to drive it, I take it to cruise in's, I have done 200mile day trips, I have taken it to the track and it runs consistant 13.10 (best time 12.96 @ 107) enjoy it with the family, not afraid if someone leans on it or touches it, although I try to keep it out of the rain if possible. About the paint, what would be correct for this car would be Brewster Green paint and the small bird on the nose (one option that was not ordered for this car was the large hood bird which was an option in 73). So although not original this is the way this car appeared back in the day. The rest of the body and interior is original, the car is loaded with options that include , CUSTOM CLOTH, PW, PL, A/C, REAR WINDOW DEFROST, LIGHT GROUP, TINTED WINDOWS, REAR CONSOLE, FM STEREO, EXTERIOR MOLDING TRIM PACKAGE, sealed maintenance free battery (it had no fill plugs). RTS (radial tuned suspension) which was an option for the first time in 1973 trans am and formula, this included radial ttires with about a 1/2 white wall stripe and the suspension change which I think was about 1/2 degree negative camber.
As for the motor it was rebuilt back in 1991, .030 overbore, heads milled about .080, 030 SD pistons, match port heads, RA IV hyd cam, roller rockers, 2 1/2 flowmaster with stock style cross over muffler and Griffin radiator for 95 degree florida days, all else stock.
I have considered painting it to get the original color back but I think I would start to baby the car. It's so much fun the way is it now.

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."

1973 Pontiac Trans Am (SD 455)
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!
