1970 Pontiac Trans Am


The second-generation Pontiac Firebird was introduced in February 1970, the late date due to tooling problems. Like its predecessor, customers had a whole grocery list of options that could make their personal ride either mild or wild. Included in the mix was a base model equipped with a 250cid/155hp inline six-cylinder engine, of which only 3,134 were built. Both a three-speed synchromesh gearbox and two-speed automatic were available with the six-cylinder powerplant.
