BF AUCTION: Clean 1974 Pontiac Trans Am SD-455


If the Trans Am that we just listed is a little too rusty for you, may we recommend this one instead? It’s almost exactly the same but appears to have less corrosion and a nicer paint job. It still has the desirable Super Duty 455 engine and most of the same options. Basically this is its nicer looking twin. The price will likely be a little higher, but it all comes down to how much work you want to do. This is a Barn Finds exclusive auction so be sure to register as a bidder below.

The interior appears to be just as clean and exterior. This car has obviously been resprayed in its original Buccaneer Red at some point and I wouldn’t be surprised if some refurbishment work has been done in here too. You have to love that engine-turned dash panel and three-spoke steering wheel. These have to have one the best-looking interiors of any American muscle car.

The engine bay even looks cleaner than the other TA. As I’ve already mentioned multiple times, these engines were special and really were “Super Duty”. This car has covered 98k miles since new and we are not sure if it has ever been rebuilt or not. The brake system have been gone through with the master cylinder and booster replaced.

So there it is. Another red Trans Am SD-455! There were only 731 of these produced with the automatic transmission and this one looks like a keeper. If you’re interested, be sure to look through all the photos here in the gallery and post any questions you may have in the comments section below. There are even more Firebirds on the way so check back if this one doesn’t excite you.

  • Location: Lincoln, NE
  • Title: Clean
  • Mileage: 98,670

    R u kiddin me! – 4 sd-455’s in a row with no a/c or p/w?
    But this one’s got the bulbous optional seats. Oh well.
    Fuel line wrap should not be necessary.
    Hood scoop is open! check
    I wonder if you could have asked for wheel trim ring delete(1970 wheel look) or ask them not be installed & just thrown in trunk.
    Once u put them on & try to take em off, the wheels are scratched up.
    None of the 4 sd motors i seen today have air pumps.
    Not sure if motor was avail in california because it would have req’d an air pump & i never seen an sd-455 with an air pump.

    What a great looking car, it amazes me how well Pontiac styles the fed. require safely bumpers compared to Chevy lack of effort ugly bumpers on camaro, someone thought “hey just shape it like a railroad tie and hang it off the front and back,we’ll be fine”

    Don’t see the SD 455 Formulas and Trans Ams hardly and now we’ve got four very nice looking example at the same time! The rarity alone must push the value sky high. All we need now is a blue one, with a white scoop and no flaming chicken….I don’t think I could bare it.

    my,,, Many New Parts : 1973 Pontiac Trans Am … barn find…my regular 73 trans am with orange carpet from factory (the only one mind you and is not a sd) its still available as of 11-12-2019, but the problem is only armchair buyers are looking at the car. its no wonder any one is looking at the 4 sd’s for sale. those sd prices are giveaway and the best part is they are running and driving vehicles. what are these pontiac buyers thinking. talk about a last chance to buy a REAL SD barn find at a reasonable price. i expect to have my car for sale for a long time cause buyers will not get up off the couch and come and look at the car. but in barn finds auction as of 11-12-2019 you have a choice of 4 running and driving sd’s. a sale that buyers will most likely never see again. buyers need to get real and bid like its the last chance of a quality sd trans am. because this will probably be the last time you EVER see 4 SD’s for sale together. and between the 4 i would say at least 2 should have sold by now. BUYERS WAKE UP YOUR PASSING UP A CHANCE OF A LIFE TIME. buy an SD you will have no regrets. the value of the sd’s will go up faster than any depreciated value. 4 sd’s driver quality BUY IT AND CRUISE IT how many sd owners would love to cruise there completely restored trans am and are afraid it will get a scratch on it and then they would cry. these 4 sd barn finds you could scratch them b4 you cruise them
