The devil's in the details . . .

The 1970 Trans Am had standard 15" Rally II wheels with F60x15 RWL tires. There were no trim rings. It's the same if this combo was ordered on the Formula 400.




Should look like this:

You will notice above, there is no Ram Air II engine option. If you wanted to order one, you needed this form:

In 1970, only the Trans Am had a rear spoiler, which was standard. There was no rear spoiler option on the Formula Firebird

1973 Formula Firebird with D98 Sport Stripes





Availble in Black/Orange, Cream/Orange/Dark Brown, Lt. Blue/Bright Blue/Black, or Yellow/Lime Green/Black.




IMO, a much better looking stripe than the 1972 version. Again, a rare option.

Did you know . . .

The 1973 "Screaming Chicken" hood decal for the Trans Am was an option (512/WW7 Trans Am Hood Decal $ 55.00).








WW7 was available in 3 colors: Black/Yellow/Orange on Buccaneer Red cars, Green/Light Green/Black on Brewster Green cars, and Blue/Light Blue/Black on Cameo White Cars.

In 1973, the Trans Am shaker hood scoop would no longer be opened by a solenoid to ingest cold air into the engine. The scoop would now come permanently closed from the factory to meet federal noise emissions standards.
