1973 Pontiac Trans Am

If this car doesn't put a smile on your face, then I don't know what will. This 1973 Trans Am is a rare options delete car that was ordered with no hood birdand no added options. Now its setup as a wicked pro-touring resto-mod as you will see from the description being provided. Only 3,130 automatic Trans Am's were produced in 1973 and this one still retains its numbers matching TH400 transmission. It was recently rebuilt with a Hayes rebuild kit, Allstar 240 stall converter, Fairbanks shift kit and new poly mounts were installed.

Bolted to the numbers matching TH400 is a 74 dated Y-Code 455 that is far from stock. This 455 is bored .30 over (462), drilled and tapped 4 bot main, line bored and balanced, equipped with a Forged Eagle Crank, Kaufman D-Port Aluminum Racing Heads, Ferra SST 2.11/1.66 Valves, Edelbrock Performer Intake, Quick Fuel SS-750 Carburetor, Quick Fuel Carburetor Fuel Lines, AED Fuel Pressure Gauges, Holley Fuel Pump, Full Roller Top End, Comp Cam 274H, ARP Hardware throughout, Cleveit 77 Bearings, TRW Forged Aluminum Flat Top Pistons, MSD 6AL Electronic Ignition, MSD Aluminum Vacuum Advance Distributor, MSD Plug Wires, Hooker Comp D-Port Ceramic Coated Headers, Pypes 2.5" Exhaust with V-Tube Mufflers and X-Pipe.

Suspension has been setup with Hotchkis 2.5" Lowering Kit, Hotchkis Anti-Roll Equipment, Hotchkis Sub-Frame Connectors and the car rolls down the road beautifully on 17" Year One Repro Honeycomb Wheels! Believe it or not, this car clears 274/40ZR17 tires on all four corners. This allows for the tires to actually be rotated and the stance is evil with a 275 up front!

This car is heavily moded but there is still something about it that pulls at the collector's heart strings. Rare Options Delete Car, No Hood Bird from the factory, PHS Documents, Original Owners Manuals, Original Emission Control Systems Book, Many receipts and documents. Original Dash (In Great Shape), Original Door Panels (In Great Shape), Original Headliner (In Great Shape) and Original Rear Seat Side Panels (In Great Shape).

Taking this car to the next level is the amazing and very flat, slick PPG Buccaneer Red paint. This was the original color for the car and it wears it beautifully!
