1973-78 Pontiac Trans Am Hood bird decal
1973-78 Pontiac Trans Am Hood bird decal kit. In 1973 Pontiac released the first one piece hood bird which was available in 3 color groups depending on the body color. The Brewster Green model offered in 1973 featured the 2 color green hood bird with black body which is unique to that year only. The 2 color orange hood bird was used during the 1973 through 1975 model years. The 2 color blue hood bird with black body was used during the 1973 through 1975 model years and reintroduced for the 1978 model year featuring 3 color blue with gold accent Trans Am names and shaker decal. In 1976 Pontiac released the gold outline with mustard color accent and continued that through 1978. What is unique to this hood bird is depending on body color GM printed the colors on either a clear vinyl or black vinyl which we suspect was used on the black Trans Am so the adhesive of the decals was not seen against the black paint color.
Trans Am front nose decal was introduced in 1976 and carried into 1977. In 1978 the Trans Am name was not use.
Pontiac spoiler name was introduced in 1976 and continued through 1978.
Engine shaker decals we tailor our kits to your specific year. We offer your choice of shake engine I.D. based on your model year. With the idea is to keep your restoration year correct.
NOTE: Our hood birds are stored flat until time of sale and rolled around a 5 inch core tube like the factory kit it to insure a freshly rolled kit.
GM Was First…
We Were Second… Did you know we even use the original GM part numbers for the hood birds. The same applies to the Trans Am names & shaker decals.
