Trans Am 455 Numbers Matching Frame Off Restoration, Auto, AC, PHS documented, for sale
455 TRANS AM
This Trans Am has had a complete frame off restoration on the entire car approximately 10 years ago and has barely been driven since it was completed. The car just came out of a six year storage and was gone through to make sure it was road worthy.
The gas tank was drained and all fuel lines flushed prior to starting motor. The oil was changed and the coolant was replaced along with water pump in the last week. The engine runs super smooth with that classic Pontiac sound through its new 2 ½”performance dual exhaust system. The engine temp is nice and cool around 180 degrees and the oil pressure is strong at 60 psi to 80 under acceleration.
Engine and Transmission: This 455 original engine is the correct numbers matching motor that the car was built with. The motor still all of its original components such as block. heads. exhaust manifolds. etc. as when new with exception to the intake which is a 1968 428 HO intake. I have a NOS(new old stock) correct 1973 intake for the car still in the box that will be included in the sale of the car. It performs exceptionally well and is strong runner. The carburetor is a new old stock correct 1973 455 Trans Am automatic carb(7043262) that I just purchased new in the GM box($1. 00) and installed recently. Great find getting that carb. The transmission shifts nice and crisp between gears and the kick down works when you leave it in drive and press down on the accelerator pedal for passing or just for the thrill of it. The engine and transmission run and operate properly with strong performance.
Rear Axle. Brake. and Suspension: The rear axle is the 3. 08 that came with the car because of A/C. The posi-traction works great with no noise and puts the power down on the pavement. The entire suspension was gone through and springs. bushings. sway bar links. etc where all replaced. The shocks are high pressure KYB new on all four corners which give's still car exceptional handling. It goes down the road nice and flat. even in the corners. The brakes are all new with all new rotors. drums. pads and hardware. It also and it has a nice strong pedal. The brakes work great and stop the car very quick.
Interior: The interior has had new carpet. door panels. seat covers. headliner and package tray installed when it was restored years ago. The dash is absolutely beautiful from one corner to the next. The gauges are nice and clear and all function correctly with exception to the clock not working. The seat belts and shoulder belts are all correct and original to the car with the one year only 1973 buckle. It does have the correct original pre-RTS turned metal dash bezel.
Body and Paint: Wow! The car was painted its original color code 11 Cameo White. The body and paint are both extremely straight and nice. The car has had new rear quarter panels installed and the fit is very nice. The margins on the panels all line up from quarters to trunk and doors to fenders to hood. The tail panel is perfect with correct alignment to the rear quarters under the rear bumper. See pics of rear. The doors have nice well defined lips on them with no filler what so ever. The paint is a high dollar paint job that I would estimate in today dollars cost to be equivalent to around $7000 to $9000. The texture is smooth and well color sanded and buffed. All of the jambs were painted out and smooth as well with no over spray. The front nose does not have and cracks and lines up nice to fenders. All decals are new also and look great. The entire bottom of the car was painted black at time of restoration and is extremely solid. There is no undercoating on the bottom side. Nothing to hide! Very nice car!
Wheels and Tires: I have the original 15” Pontiac Rally II wheels with trim rings and center caps which will go with the car. The wheels and tires on the car now are brand new Year One 17” x 9” with new Nitto Tires. I just spend $1. 00 on this purchase but would like to keep them. The original wheels and tires go with the car and the ones on the car will cost you an additional $1700 if you want them. If you want to buy them with the car we can discuss it prior finalizing the sale.
Paperwork: I have the PHS documents on the car and all of the equipment and codes match this car. The car has 36500 miles on it now but I cannot guarantee the mileage as original. There are a few other receipts also that I will include with car when sold.
Terms: I am selling the car “AS IS” because cars of this age are. I will require a $2. 00 deposit within two days of end of auction and the balance within seven days. Please have your funds available to purchase. If you need additional time for balance just call me and I am sure we can work something out on time. I will be happy to store the car for you until you have made transportation arrangements. I will help in coordinating the shipping if you need me to but the cost will be paid by you.
