LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty
The Trans Am Super Duty 455 was introduced in 1973 and it did not take a great deal of nostalgia to remember the Super Duty of old. Similar to its predecessors, the Super Duty 455 was a racing engine designed to not only hold up under the bright lights of competition but, also withstand the diametrically opposed goal of meeting new federal emissions requirements. The Super Duty engines were assembled by hand utilizing a 4-bolt-main block, special high-performance camshaft, large valves, aluminum pistons and high-flow exhaust manifolds. The engine was intentionally underrated by the factory at 290hp but, when tested back in the day by some of the nation’s leading car magazines, a similar 1974 455 Super Duty T/A produced times in the 14.5-second bracket at 101 MPH.
One out of a mere 731 produced, X-Code Pontiac 455 Super Duty Trans Ams built for the 1974 model year with this transmission. This real Cameo White beauty was delivered new to London Motor Products Ltd. It was factory ordered with the Super Duty 455 CI engine backed by the Turbo 400 automatic transmission and 3.08 Posi-traction rear differential. This particular T/A was equipped from the factory with power windows, power door locks, air conditioning, tilt steering, tinted glass, hood decal, rally gauges, rear spoiler, rear defrost and AC Delco AM/FM stereo radio.
This Trans Am Super Duty comes fully documented with the bullit proof Pontiac Historical Services documentation as well as the General Motors paperwork. The 1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455 cars were the very last of the high-performance cars from the '70s and the history of the Super Duty is legendary. This should prove to be a great addition to any Pontiac muscle-car enthusiast’s collection.
