Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Cool Cars: 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

Posted March 03, 2011 8:30 AM by dstrohl

I certainly understand the whole date-coded, as-it-came-from-the-factory thing. There's certainly been plenty of misrepresentation in the muscle car scene over the years to warrant the focus on authenticity. But that presumes everybody out there's a dishonest creep, and we can see from the description of this 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am that there are still plenty of honest people out there willing to show a car for what it really is. Plus, without the original engine in it, you can flog this 'bird like it oughta be flogged.

This 1970 Pontiac Firebrid Trans Am now has a 1970 WT coded four speed block with #12 Heads, rebuilt carb not date coded to motor. It does retain its numbers matching four speed trans and 3.55 12 bolt safe-t-track rear end. The motor was rebuilt and is 30 over bore with Ram Air III specs. The motor has approximately 1500 miles on it. The clutch was replaced with a centerforce clutch, pressure plate and fly wheel.
