Of the Pontiac Firebird’s various generations, models produced in the early 1970s have served as an iconic illustration of the vehicle’s storied past. Whether or not you’re a fan of the second generation muscle car, there’s no denying that its shapely contours and recognizable silhouette have made a mark on the classic auto industry. Now, a divine specimen from the aforementioned era has been slated for auction via Mecum.

The 1974 Pontiac Firebird that you see here is an immaculate two-door coupe from the company’s golden age, and while we certainly understand the qualms that might be given rise from the car’s all-original enthusiasts, we’re willing to go out on a limb. In order to bring the car into modernity, it’s been gifted with a slew of contemporary upgrades, including a monstrous 566-horsepower Katech LS3 V-8 engine, 4L70E transmission, Auburn Positraction, Moser axles, and 3.08 gears. Its overall ride height has also been managed, thanks to the addition of QA1 upper/lower control arms and a set of formidable QA1 coil-overs. But what’s truly enticing about this model is its reshaped front end, which adds a unique aesthetic to the car’s overall stance, reminiscent of the 1971 Firebird Formula. No price has been set, so keep your eyes on Mecum’s website for emerging details.
