1973 Firebird Interior Choices

Firebirds have always been offered in two trim levels, the standard and Custom.  The Custom interior was standard on Esprit and optional on Formula and Trans Am.  The custom interior offered more luxurious amenities like an improved seat design and specific door panels with separate pull straps.  There was also a holding strap on the passenger dashboard.

The Custom Interior seats were redesigned for 1973 featuring the popular horse collar design.  Although sales were picking up 1973 saw the fewest colors available for Firebird interiors of any year.   The Green color was discontinues in both standard and custom trims and the Blue color was dropped from the custom interior.  This was the first year that you could not get a blue interior in any Firebird.  The Black cloth interior was also dropped.

Perhaps due to the lack of interior colors Pontiac offered three unique options this year.  In 1973 only you could order carpets in Red, Orange, or Bright Blue.  Option 611/75F allowed you to order Red Carpet with either a Black or White interior.  Option 612/97F allowed Orange Carpet and option 614/24F allowed Bright Blue Carpet, both available with White Interiors.  These options are extremely rare and unique to 1973 only.  No photos have been acquired of any of these combinations.
