About

This is my pride and joy: My 1976 Pontiac Trans Am. My dad bought it as a "Father and Son" project about three years ago.The car has the original "numbers matching" 400 engine & it runs & drives great. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts nicely, the car always starts for me & I feel confident driving it anywhere.

There are no rust or dents, and there have never been any. - It's just a very nice clean car that has been kept as original as possible, except that the interior has been reupholstered, and about 2 years ago my dad and I repainted the car the original color with the help of a friend of his in the restoration business and had a brand new set of decals put on. Also I had a brand new exhaust system put on. My dad and I did a lot of the work on it ourselves, learning as we went along. He surprised me by giving it to me as a college graduation present last spring.

Specs

Rebuilt and warmed-over, numbers matching Pontiac 400 engine
4-speed stick
0-60 in about 4.5 seconds
About 14 flat in the 1/4 @ 100+/-
Dual exhausts without catalysts (Please don't tell the state about that!)

Factory Options

Not much - she's pretty basic. NO A/C!

Mods

The usual internal mods in the engine when it was rebuilt and a modern sound system in the original mounting holes - NO CUTTING!
