The 1970 Pontiac Trans is a performance icon and one of the most revered and sought after muscle cars on the planet. The performance, functional design and unique aggressive looks deep these cars on the bucket list for many collectors.
“The Beginning of Tomorrow” is a tag line Pontiac used when it introduced the second-generation F-body Firebirds. The cars were sleek, futuristic and aerodynamic. The Trans Am was the ultimate Firebird. For 1970 model year the Pontiac Trans Am was a holistic package of performance. The aerodynamics consisted of front and rear spoilers, a spoiler at each wheel and air extractors on each side of the fenders. Not only did this give the car an aggressive look unique only to the Trans Am, it also proved very functional as the combination of the front spoiler and air extractors added 50 pounds of downforce at highway speeds which assisted to most excellent front-end stability.
The suspension features a beefy 1 ¼ inch front stabilizer bar and an added rear stabilizer bar and the 400 cubic inch Ram Air V8 with 4 barrel carburation features 10.5:1 compression developing 345 horse power and 430 pound feet of torque. The Trans Am was not built to be a stripped-down performance car, it is wonderfully appointed with a stylish and exciting interior. At the center is Pontiac’s exclusive 14 inch Formula steering wheel, the signature engine turned aluminum instrumentation panel, simple yet accurate gauges, bucket seat and can be optioned to taste.

So, avoid the couple of years wait and own plus enjoy this exceptional 400 today.
