1974 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455. 1-Lady Owner until 2011! Magazine Featured! 1974 Pontiac Trans Am SD 455 2-Door Coupe Exterior Color:      Red Interior Color:      White Mileage: 49. 50 Engine: SD 455 Fuel: Gasoline Transmission: Automatic Warranty: As Is - No Warranty Title: Clear VIN: 2V87X4N115736 Carlyle Motors is proud to offer for sale this amazing. unrestored 1974 Trans Am Super Duty 455.   We purchased this car from it's original owner in October of 2011 in Warren. Massachusetts.   This car is highly documented and comes with loads of original paperwork and a great story.

One lady owner until October 2011. An unrestored and very original example with just over 49. 50 original miles! This car was on the cover and featured in the January 2011 issue of Muscle Car Review in an article written by Steve Magnante.   Steve Magnante is very well known as a commentator for Barrett-Jackson Auctions.  

Believed to be the only 1974 Super Duty delivered into New England. 1 of 731 Automatic Super Duty's built in 1974.   If you are looking for an unrestored pure example to enjoy or restore back to a concourse level. this is the car.


Delivered to Beard Motors in Barre. Massachusetts in December. 1973 this car lived its entire life there until now.   Though it spent its entire life in New England. the owner was smart and only drove it during the warm months so that is how the body kept from being massively rusty and why the 95% original Buccaneer Red paint still shines like new.

The original. numbers matching engine is not just numbers matching but it has NEVER BEEN APART.   Very original. right down to the hoses (just a few maintenance items). 95% Original Paint that still Shines Like New. 100% Original Interior that will Blow you Away.   Its still so New. Only 2 Panels inside had to be Dyed and for a White interior car that is a Major Statement.

The Dash looks like New. "Right out of the Box Fresh". the Gauges Absolutely still look Brand New. The White Deluxe Seats are still Firm.   The undercarriage is amazing and the Original. Red Oxide Primer still looks great.

The car runs strong and it is still very tight.   This amazing car still retains it's original. numbers matching Automatic Transmission. Factory AC. Factory Honeycombs. Factory AM-FM Radio. PHS Docs. Original Books. Paperwork. Etc.  

The Sound of a Factory Assembly Line Race Engine in 1 of 731 Automatic 1974 Super Dutys ever made. Now That's Legendary. Pontiac Excitement!!!

In 1979 the owner realized what a special car it was and decided to dry store it and tuck it away safely until 2009.   In 2009. the original owner decided to roll it back out and start enjoying again by driving it to car shows and cruise events. Naturally. it won awards whenever she went!

This car is a gorgeous color combination with it's Buccaneer Red Paint and White. Deluxe Interior.   It was great to meet Sandy and Steve and we couldn't be more excited to own this great car.
