Although PMD shows this as the 1977 Banshee, it was actually first made in 1974. This Banshee III was the third in the Banshee series. The front end bears some similarities to the later Trans-Ams.

The Banshee III was developed from the Pontiac Firebird platform with a long sloping front end and more aerodynamic rear styling. The front was a smooth blend of bumper sheet metal and covered headlamps for improved aerodynamics. The soft face bumper system consisted of body color urethane over an energy absorbing foam base, and the quartz halogen rectangular headlamps had a three-beam system, low, freeway and high.
The side glass was fixed and flush to sheet metal for improved aerodynamics and reduced wind noise, and an electrically operated access panel or toll window, was provided in the fixed side glass design.

The interior had red leather upholstery. The trunk can be accessed by a hatch, that the rear seats can be folded for additional luggage space and the seat harness system was anchored in the structural seat.

A 455 CID Super Duty V8 Pontiac engine powered the Banshee III.

The metallic maroon Banshee III made its public debut in 1974. It had four slit style taillights, but these became twenty "high-tech, round-hole" taillights when it was updated in 1976. From this point it was probably called a 1977.
