1970 Firebird Trans Am Clone Race Car

This is actually a 1970 Firebird Esprit.  
My family is the second owner of the vehicle which we purchased in 1975.

This car has always resided in southern California.
I wanted to turn the car into a Trans Am Race car. so my brother & I began this project.

This car was a complete car with NO MISSING PARTS when it was taken apart. Every part that was removed was saved in a box and is included (except for the dashboard & carpet). All parts necessary to put the car back together are included.  You may need to provide miscellaneous parts like hoses and fittings. a battery. paint. etc…


Brand new exterior parts:
Trans Am front fenders and front interior wheel wells
Trans Am foilers. spoiler and front air dam
Rear panel below the rear window (above the trunk lid)
Brand-new complete decal kit - Hood  Bird. SD 455 for the scoop. Trans Am for the sides & rear spoiler.  
Decal colors are dark/light blue.  
My intention was to paint the car gloss black with these decals.  
The rear bumper has been de-chromed for painting.

The bodywork is 90% complete.

All of the bare metal parts in the photos are perfectly straight. meaning if you primer and block them. they are ready for paint. The front nose and hood have not been straightened.

The nose needs a little work to be perfect. the hood came from a 76 Trans Am I owned and it is straight. we just haven't spent any time to make it perfect.
The black tone on the body is from a rust inhibitor that I wiped on the metal.

The engine compartment was painted gloss black and was color sanded to a mirror finish.  
We custom fitted sheet aluminum over the firewall which has the same gloss black finish.  

Additional brand new parts included for the re-assembly:
New 4-core radiator 
New braided hose sleeves with anodized blue ends
New spark plug wires 
New front brake rotors with pads 
New aluminum fuel line

Four brand-new centerline rims are included and are still in the factory boxes.

All new weather stripping.

 

Engine:

Engine is a YC block. totally custom . 060 over 455(469cid) with 96cc D-port heads fully ported and polished with stainless valves. (2. 12 intake. 1. 80 exhaust) custom made 3/8 push rods. Crane aluminum roller rockers. stud girdle. insane . 690 intake and . 740 exhaust roller cam(280deg@. 050). nbsp;Venolia ultra-light custom pistons(max lightened). custom light weight wrist pins. nbsp;nitrided cast crank. Pontiac SD rods shot-peened and polished(and Rockwell tested). 7-quart Milodon oil pan and pump. approximately 10. 5 to 1 compression to run pump gas(with these heads). Doug Nash warrior intake extrude honed. custom valley pan. custom Holley 850. MSD 6A on HEI distributor(MSD and Holley are NOT new). custom made billet aluminum pulleys. 2” hooker headers. 3” Flowmaster mufflers. custom Darrell Young 10” converter(approximately 2500 stall). 10-bolt posi-traction rear end from a late 70s Trans Am with Richmond 3. 90 gears.  There was an existing tranny cooler mounted in the front of the car. There are already new trannycooler lines run behind the wheel wells to the front of the car.  This engine and all of the parts listed have never been run or used.



The car still has power steering.
The valve covers need to be replaced. the ones in the pictures were cheap ones we just installed temporarily until we could find a nice set.
The battery will be relocated to the trunk for weight distribution. New battery cables are already connected to the starter and routed most of the way to the trunk.   
We removed the factory fan and installed an electric fan for added power. The electric fan supplied was used from the last setup.

I had not yet replaced the transmission which is still a turbo 350 with a shift kit. it will probably not be able to survive the new engine. We did install a custom made Darryl Young 10" Torque converter with approximately 2500 stall.  

The rear end is a stock posi-traction 10-bolt from a late 70s firebird which we installed Richmond 3. 90 gears.  

The planned exhaust was going to be 3" with the provided flow masters that stops before the rear end.  

The suspension is stock but traction bars are installed

The Interior is the original black firebird seats. The driver seat was redone many years ago and is in good condition.  
All other seats are ok but the corner of the top seams are pulling away.  See photos.
The door panels are original - The armrests are cracking on both sides.  
The center console is in good shape.  
A brand-new headliner and rear deck were purchased and are included.

Brand-new auto meter gauges were custom installed in the factory cluster. but still need to be wired.
The car does not have a dashboard or carpet.  

The rear window has been tinted 5%. but is not installed along with the windshield.  

The car does not come equipped with air conditioning. interior heater or power brakes - all of these were removed for weight reduction & for a cleaner looking engine compartment.

 

This is a perfect project car to have one bad-ass Trans Am when you're done.  Projected power is over 600 h. p.
