This car looks like it's going 100 miles an hour when parked! The much-desired factory paint code 19, Starlite Black, is complemented iconically by the factory's optional gold honeycomb wheels. 1976 was the final year for these classic-style wheels to be ticked on the option sheet.
Pontiac, a division of General Motors, is famous for its performance cars. This brand produced some of the most impressive muscle cars we've ever seen, and one of them is the infamous Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. It took performance to the next level, with more horsepower, upgraded suspension systems, and better handling. Combining power, agility, comfort, and beauty makes it one of the most recognized muscle cars of its day. This Starlite Black Trans Am with the gold “Rising Phoenix” on its hood and gold accents is no exception.
A smile will overcome you when you slide behind the wheel into this car's deluxe extra-cost Black Bucket Seats (19N). The first thing that jumps out is the machined turned-swirl dash bezel. Then you look up and over that long hood, and you can't help but notice the functional shaker hood, tempting you to move the tachometer needle! Right under that scoop is the VIN teasing "W" coded, 455 cubic inch engine that provides the "muscle" in this car. That's 7.5 liters, and the final year that engine option was available in the Trans Am. A four-speed, manual transmission sets you back in the bucket seat while you're grabbing gears and doing all you can not to wear out the Radial T/A tires before their time!
Whether you need to get to Texarkana, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, or Dallas, this BFGoodrich burning bird will get you there in a hurry! Don't miss out on your chance to own one of the most recognizable cars of the era!
