You will not be disappointed.
Starting with the engine, it is the correct Pontiac 400 V8, completely rebuilt from the bottom up. The block was bored out .020 over and received all new internals, and the original 6x cylinder heads were redone. Everything on the engine is brand new, including oil pump, fuel pump, water pump, AC compressor, distributor, etc etc. The carburetor is a brand new QuadraJet from Jet Performance. The exhaust is a complete stainless steelPypes dual crossover system with the correct polished splitter tips. Everything mechanical on the car is tight, and right.
The interior was completely redone from the headliner to the carpet. The key word here is NEW! Everything was either restored or replaced. I did retain the old school cassette deck with equalizer setup, just because it works perfectly and I love the look of the cool retro technology. The famous swirled dash bezel and Formula steering wheel were dyed in dazzling golden clearcoat, which was one of the original Special Edition specifications. The headliner is new, the carpet is new, the door panelsare new, and the Deluxe seats are all new. Even the seat belts are brand new.The interior is just simply amazing. It's as comfortable as it is beautiful, and it literally SMELLS like a new car inside!
The exterior of this beautiful Bandit is where this car really shines.....both figuratively AND literally! The paint is correct code 19 Starlight Black. I have seen lots and lots of paint jobs over the years, and this one is one of the best I've ever seen. The paint is deep, flawless and beautiful. There are no excuses on this one. The body is laser straight. There is no rust, and there never was any. It's as solid as the day it was made. There are no chips, scratches, or dents, period. The goldenSpecial Edition package decals and pinstripes are all correct, perfect, and they look gorgeous against the ink black mirror they were applied on. The iconic gold Phoenix screams on the hood just below the outrageous "shaker" hood scoop. All of the correct spoilers are present. The correct golden "Snowflake" wheels are the icing on a very delicious visual treat. These cars are very eye-catching and are loved by everyone....and very rarely do you see one that is in theexceptional condition that this one is in.
All in all, this Trans Am is one of those cars that EVERYONE wants. It has all the right options.....Black on black with all the gold Bandit trim, big Pontiac 400, and T-TOPS! It's all new, so you will be the first to enjoy it in all it's perfect glory. Can you imagine sliding down into the seat, turning the key, stepping on the gas and watching the shaker scoop tilt as you rumble away into the sunset with the wind in your hair? Anyone that owns an old Trans Am will tell you that these cars are a real pleasure to drive. Don't miss your chance to get behind the wheel!
