Archive of ten vintage photographs of a full-size clay model Pontiac, circa 1970s

[Automobiles] [Pontiac]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1970s. Archive of ten vintage photographs of a full-size clay car model, which appears to be a prototype of a mid-1970s second generation Pontiac Firebird. Two photographs with manuscript touch-up work to the images, all with annotations in manuscript pencil noting catalog numbers on the verso.

The photographs in the archive do not explicitly identify the model, and the car's design has no precise match to any car in the Pontiac line, although the sporty front end and wrapped rear window bear a resemblance to the updated second-generation production model Trans Am in 1975. Just visible in the background of two of the photographs are several drawn designs for the car mounted on the wall.

The Trans Am was a specialty package for the Firebird, which included upgrades to handling, suspension, and horsepower, and surface modifications such as unique hoods and spoilers, fog lights, and wheels. Four generations of the package were produced between 1969 and 2002.

Eight photographs 8 x 10 inches, two trimmed for demonstration use. Very Good plus or better overall.
