Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am/GTO 1967-1999

Performance-oriented Pontiacs have been popular in Australia for several decades and offer plenty of choice for buyers. Starting at the top of the price tree we find early GTO hardtops at $65-70,000, with post-1967 cars slightly less.

Excellent GTO convertibles are worth a lot more than $47,000. Recent Trans Am price movements centre on 1974-81 ‘Bandit’ cars that since 2012 have surged by 50 per cent.

Pre-1971 Firebirds are up by a similar proportion, with some topping $60,000. While the bulk of 1980s-90s Firebird/Trans Am models are struggling, look for 5.7-litre GTA versions that sell for around $30,000.

V6 Turbos are very scarce in Australia but offshore will cost US$25-40,000 even before import costs.
