This 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has the awesome classic blackout package and hood bird we all love. But as you dig deeper, you're going to see great upgrades, like an A/C interior and serious 428 power under the hood.
Black is always beautiful on a T/A, and this was upgraded later in life, so you get a nice modern clearcoat luster. And that's exactly what you want on a '76. After all, it was the first year for the fully integrated urethane bumpers that give this Pontiac a uniform appearance of a more modern sports car. Plus, you get all the great Trans Am touches from the factory body kit, to the "screaming bird" on the hood. There's even the shaker hood, fender vents, and full-length rear spoiler. Not only does all that silver pinstriping match the hood bird, but it also coordinates with the upgraded 17-alloy wheels from Year One. They give you that classic Pontiac Honeycomb look, but in a size that's ready to accept modern sports tires.
This is a factory-black interior, and it shows quite well today as the seats, door panels, carpeting, dash, and center console are very nice. Even the front buckets retain their button-top presentation. Full instrumentation was standard on Trans Ams, including the tach/clock combination. The dials look great set in the iconic and aggressive machine-turned instrument panel. Ahead of that the driver gets the three-spoke sports steering wheel that should be quite familiar to Pontiac fans. While this looks quite stock, right down to the AM radio that's still on display, there are also some great upgrades. For example, just below the factory radio is a well-placed AM/FM/CD stereo. It offers the best in modern amenities, including Bluetooth and a USB input to charge your phone. And the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a.
Under the hood is where this one varies from stock, and it's also what you're going to love the most. The V8 displaces 428 cubic-inches. That's a legendary size in Pontiac circles. The big V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. You also have great driving features, like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes. Plus, this upholds the tradition of a proper handling T/A with upgrades like the rear sway bar, lowered suspension, and the grip of modern performance tires.
This is a bold machine with all the right moves. Don't let it slip away, call today!
