Pontiac Type K Concept Muscle Car

By  | 

Pontiac-Type-K-Concept11

Late 1977, Pontiac came up with a pair of concept cars, titled the ‘Type K.’
Designed by GM executive designer David R. Holls and Pontiac studio designer Gerry Brockstein, the car was meant to be a sports wagon, but had the addition of top hinged rear side windows ( basically gullwing windows) and a large horizontal louvers which hid head tail lamps and the fuel door.

Both the design concepts were built on a Firebird base, but the initial target price of $16,000 was almost triple that of a 1978 T/A Firebird, but projected price eventually went up to $25,000 due to many problems and the start of the second wave of ‘oil crisis’ at the time. Thus the vehicle was shelved and left as one of those vehicles that nearly got there, but didn’t quite make it.

The concert wasn’t completely shelved as GM tried another Pontiac sports wagon around 1986. It wasn’t identified in any way to the Type K model, but like the type K, it never hit production due to its many problems and inflated price.


If the car did eventually come out, do you think it could have been a contender or a flop?

    Wouldn’t have liked to have it then but would probably be a rare classic running across Barrett Jacksons block these days.
