A Guide To All V-8 Firebird Models' Part Numbers, Options, Serial Numbers and Production Totals
The second generation Pontiac Firebirds and Trans Ams were so iconic, with features such as the hood scoops, stripes and the Trans Am bird decal. The excellent "free" advertising provided by the "Smokey and The Bandit" movies definitely did not hurt the 2nd generation Trans Am reputation either.
If you are in the midst or planning a restoration of a second generation Pontiac Firebird, Trans Am or Forumula, this manual should be by your side. You won't find another guide quite like it. The material found in the manual was assembled with the help of Pontiac factory parts catalogs and service bulletins.
Note: The part numbers listed in this manual may be different than the numbers on your car because the specific numbers differed for various vendors that made the part.
This manual provides a complete study of the part numbers, codes and various options of all subsystems, such as: Engines, Drivetrain, Brakes, Suspension, Steering Systems, Interior, Brakes, Electrical Systems, Body and Sheet Metal Frames, and other Options. It also includes sections on part suppliers and production totals.
The specific engines (with all subtle year, carb, etc. differences) covered are:
- 455-ci S.D.
In addition to the Trans Am, Firebird and Formula models, this guide also covers the rare packages like the Redbird, Skybird and the Special edition Trans Am packages.
Note: The cover photo is a 1973 Forumula with a 455-ci S.D., one of 43 built. Sweet!!
