As government regulations which effectively “choked” muscle cars began to become a buzzkill for muscle car enthusiasts, the Pontiac Firebird SD 455 was one of the very few new cars available which offered a large displacement engine in a car that could perform. Driving a car that had a big 455ci V8 was something of an odd idea as gas prices were rising, along with emissions standards becoming stricter. Enthusiasts with a liking for large displacement sports cars continued to buy Firebirds, with the “Super Duty” 455 cars like this one being the top of the line.

Highlighted here is a Buccaneer Red Firebird SD 455. As the top of the line Firebird, this car has a lot of great features, including the potent 455ci V8. This Firebird has been professionally restored, finished in the correct color combination, and features a numbers matching engine. We also have a positive inspection report which shows a number of drivetrain components of the car being correct.

The color that you see on this awesome Firebird, which Pontiac called Buccaneer Red, (code R) is the correct factory color. The paint is in beautiful condition, with a deep shine and a glossy finish throughout. TransAm decals and the unmistakable Firebird decal on the hood provide some contrast to the bright red body work. Body panels line up nicely, lights and lenses are in nice condition, and exterior trim right down to the Endura front and rear bumpers shows well.

A red exterior over a red interior combination doesn't seem to be a common trim package, on a Firebird like this. It's a little mono-chromatic and definitely bright, but for a sports car like a Firebird, why not? The red interior is the factory correct color (code 590) and is in beautiful condition. The interior includes bucket seats, power locks, power windows, console, optional AM/FM stereo with 8-track player, and a 3-spoke Formula steering wheel. Faux engine turned aluminum frames Rallye gauges, auxiliary gauges, round vents, and a clock. Faux engine turned aluminum also frames the shifter in the center console.

In the engine bay is a 455ci V8 mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission. The engine is painted in the correct Pontiac metallic blue and topped with a body colored air filter housing. The engine is numbers matching and has a “Y8” suffix, which is correct for a '74 SD455 that has an automatic transmission. A 4bbl Quadrajet carburetor, Delco distributor, Taylor spark plug wires, and air conditioning components are other engine bay highlights.

As the muscle car era faded, Pontiac was still holding on with the limited production, large displacement V8 powered Firebird. The 455SD offered here is a superb example of a car that allowed Pontiac to continue to flex its muscles just a little longer in the muscle car wars. This is a special car for Pontiac collectors to consider for their collections. Remember, “there is no replacement for displacement.” Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
