** Purchased October 1978 from Mecham Pontiac Dealership in Glendale Arizona by Ken Martindale of Salt Lake City. Utah
** This Trans Am is Ultra Rare ! Each component was a special order from Mecham to create a high top speed Trans Am. She has 2:56 rear gears ** The car was Special Order from day 1 with hardtop and WS4 handling Pkg because she was destined to have everything replaced including suspension. Shocks. heels. Tires. Exhaust. Seats and stereo system.

** I have the Pontiac 400 engine that was installed in early 1980 with original turbo setup.
**Does Not have original matching numbers block. She has a built 400 engine with 1967 670 Heads and Ram Air 4 cam. I also have a near-new Complete H. O. Racing Turbo Setup from 1978 that was used for less than 1000 miles that will be a perfect replacement for the original setup. I have a lot of the original turbo setup also.
** Headliner is sagging and original Fosgate stereo system is missing.
** I am the 3rd owner since new and know the other owners. The color was changed from Red/Black to Black/Gold when red paint started to fade in 2005 - Dennis Mecham agreed that color change is ok if within DKM color scheme options. He said they changed a few of them when new- just as 1979 Macho #8 which just sold at auction in New York last week. (sold for $40. 50 with fees - unrestored)
** Interior is original with original Recaro Seats
