What is a Fire Am?"" and believe it or not that is a great question. The answer...It's everything the Trans Am could have been and should have been. In the height of the muscle car era, GM was turning out some of the best performance cars this world has ever known. A man by the name of Herb Adams was an automotive engineer and diehard racer and just happened to work for the GM Pontiac division. His contributions led to the now infamous Super Duty 455 engine, as well as the Ram Air V program. Perhaps his greatest contribution came after his official departure from Pontiac. On a contractual endeavor, Herb was brought in to conduct a performance-handling exercise of sorts. In 1977 Herb and his newly founded company VSE (Very Special Equipment) built 8 race-ready Trans Ams for Pontiac's IROC racing program. The program did not succeed at that time, but the improvements made to those 8 Trans Ams were not lost. Several of the key components went on to become the WS6 performance package in 1978. The rest of the improvements were deemed unsuitable for a production car and VSE was granted permission to offer those components themselves and the Fire Am was born.
This highly original, two-owner example was optioned with power steering, power disc brakes, rear seat console, power windows, tilt column, and the T/A 6.6L 400ci four-barrel V8 engine. Also included are the original window sticker, build sheet, service records, lowered suspension, chassis bracing, an updated aluminum Holly intake manifold, along with a VSC oil pan and VSC wheels.
