The seventies sure were a wild time with rock and roll playing on the stereo and disco slowly making its appearance. But what was more astounding during this time was the number of automotive greats which were churned out by the myriad of manufacturers. Standing out during this time was sure a daunting task but Pontiac took up the challenge with gusto and released the second generation of their Firebird model. The second generation enjoyed a 11-year production run and by far the longest production run with the Pontiac Firebird marque. The second-generation Firebird’s looks won the hearts of many executives at Hollywood. The most popular second-generation Firebird is the one from Smokey and the Bandit, but this car also played a part in Hollywood itself with the legendary Jim Rockford driving one during the filming of The Rockford Files. With such a rich history backed by muscle car looks, the second-generation Pontiac Firebird makes for a car that is becoming more desirable and appreciating in value. Good thing that we have this gorgeous 1975 Pontiac Firebird Coupe in inventory, coming from sunny California with just 83,000 miles on the clock. Check out this great deal if a Firebird has caught your eye!
Jim Rockford may have driven a gold Firebird, but this 1975 Pontiac Firebird Coupe is a stand-out in its own right with its lovely Brewster Green paintwork, and would not look out of place on the silver screen or the boulevard alike. The Formula hood with pin stripes and rear spoiler complete the look, as do the period-correct honeycomb wheels. The interior is decked out in beige, and seats four. The dash features the period dials and radio integrated within, and tinted windows ensure you stay cool during hot weather.
The second-generation Firebird was available with a range of in-line six, V6 and V8 engines from Buick, Chevrolet, Pontiac and Oldsmobile. What a range! This example is powered by a 350ci (5.4L) Pontiac V8 that puts out around 150hp to the rear wheels through a Turbo Hydramatic automatic gearbox. The engine is reported to have been rebuilt in 2018.
