1976 Pontiac Firebird1976 Firebird TransAm HO 455 correct Vin# WX stamped block, correct Vin# stamped 4spd Trans, correct stamped Posi-Trac Rear end-all match correct to its (pictured) build sheet, 45k original miles. Car was meticulously kept and loved by its original owner. Clearly a no hit no rust car that has an approx 5yr old $15k paint job. It is absolutely stunning to see the paint in the light...they didn't look like this in 76. Look and listen to how the doors open and close in the video below. Interior and trunk equally stunning. The rear dash is even original (one speaker!) I purchased this car in 2013 from SW, owner of Elite Motorsports in Austin as a correct, no hit, no rust car with 42k original miles. You see tons of "factory 455's listed but know that of the approx 47,000 T/A's built in 76 only 7100 were HO 455's.
Nothing has been done to the car that cannot be undone to return to stock. Factory wheels still fit if that is your preference.
Detroit Speed leaf springs and front coil-overs along with custom wheels. Drilled/slotted rotors. Handles,corners and stops beautifully and quite different than a stock T/A from the 70's. View from the back with the wide tires is awesome. I've been asked if it is mini-tubbed-its is the stock body.
I purchased an upper end package from Butler as they are the utmost authority on Pontiac performance. Edelbrock Aluminum heads, a complete Lunati/CC roller cam and roller valve train, QF billet carb, Edelbrock intake, Doug's coated headers into a stainless exhaust were all professionally installed by Elite in Austin. I wanted the car to stay completely street-able, dependable and have a very aggressive sound at idle and hit like a hammer on acceleration. I wanted the temperature totally controlled and had the largest Griffin aluminum radiator made that would fit in the stock mounts- it never goes above opening temp. A/C blows cold and she runs on pump gas. If you think it sounds good in the video you should hear it person-it never fails to turn heads. Everyone I contacted said there was no way to retain the shaker hood scoop with the top end. I found the fabrication guy that could-no mods to hood. Point being details were sweated on this car. I have never seen a second gen CLOSE to this car.
All adult owned, not raced on street or strip, no track days, no smoke, never left outside. I am a direct shot from the Austin airport.
My name is August, call me at 512- 567-7855 if you would like to discuss. I have considerably more in this car than my asking price but I need to sell. Thank you
