1974 Pontiac Trans Am SD-455
Pontiac Trans Am SD-455.
29,000 Miles. PHS documented one-owner car. Stored since 1981. Correct Y8 motor with all Super Duty components, balanced, blueprinted and updated with a high performance cam installed by Nunzi's Automotive, the Pontiac expert in high performance, according to the original owner, prior to storage. A picture of the Y8 stamping on the block accompanies this ad. The engine has less than 100 miles. This Super Duty drives and handles like new and has all the power you would expect from a Super Duty Trans Am.
Engine and transmission were re-sealed and gasketed and all components verified as correct Super Duty items. The cylinders still bore the honing cross-hatch marks. Nunzi performance camshaft installed (2042) with 1.65 rocker arms. Transmission was upgraded by TransGo and the shifter has the ratchet option from GM.
Floors and trunk dropdowns were perfect and rust-free (50% of underside floor paint is original). Not a nut and bolt restoration but rather a highly-detailed example of an original, low mileage Super Duty Trans Am. Approximately 75% of parts are original to the car except for fair wear and tear items -- belts, hoses, clamps, brakes, exhaust ($1500) condensor, radiator, weatherstrips, u-joints, front carpet, headliner and sill plates. Paint on the firewall is original.
Body was stripped of all components and paint, epoxy primed, block sanded many times, and painted with the original Admiralty blue. The body is laser straight. Subframe, differential and all other underbody components were sandblasted and painted with the correct factory colors. Much research was done to ensure correctness and a GM Assembly manual was used during reassembly to ensure correctness. New subframe bushings were installed.
The interior is all original except for headliner and front carpet, and in amazing condition. The car is a faithful representation of as delivered to the original owner on January, 1974 and is authentic. The fifth digit of the VIN is "X" indicating it is an original Super Duty Trans Am. A statement from the original owner accompanies the car.
