In our showroom SOON ! :
This original 1973 Pontiac TRANS AM with the famous 455 cui big block
and rare Manual 4 speed transmission. The car is completely restored and all the engine, transmission and body numbers are correct and original to the car.
The car is one of around only around 1420 4 speed TA produced this is in the best colors of them all Buccaneer red with black Custom interior. Combined with this cars options it might be one of a handful car’s ever produced!. PTTM is proud to present this great car to it's clients.
In 1973 with the fuel crisis going on, almost all car manufacturers in the US pulled the plug on the high performance muscle cars. Pontiac however was one of the last to offer a true performance car with this Firebird Trans Am with its 455 cui high output V8. A car that was also at its best as the 1973 model, for most muscle car enthusiasts was at its absolute peak in design and style.
The Famous Firebird Hood bird decal was all new for this model year, and it was
a direct hit and made these already very sleek and stylish cars stand out even
more from the rest. And although many people seem to think that all Trans am’s
had the Bird on the hood, that’s not the case!. You really needed to order it separately, and it was a 55$ cost option at the time. And although nowadays you almost
don’t see a Trans am without it, most of them didn’t come from the factory
with one at the time. This car however is a true Hood-bird car as its also on
the cars' factory original order-invoice sheet that comes with it.
Besides its amazing looks and high-output big block 455cui engine these Trans
am’s were also one of the best ( if not THE best) cars around in the 70’s as
far as handling and all out performance was concerned. With their famous Radial
Tuned suspension systems these cars really handled like a dream and cut corners
like a knife through butter back in the day. But besides being sporty, the were
also very comfortable to drive. The additional custom bucket seat interior
added to its overall comfortable and joyful ride as well.
Finding an all original and correct 455 Trans am these days is hard, if not
almost impossible as most of these cars were hacked up in the late 70’s or
abused as dragrace cars. So not many have survived and because they are highly
desirable and very sought after today, it’s just rare to find one nowadays.
Prices for really original and numbers match, restored true 4 speed cars, is
going up and up as the demand for them is much higher than cars available.
The car that we present to you here is one of these rare cars, and it’s also
completely restored inside and out.
It also comes in one of the best colors, Buccaneer red with black Custom bucket seat interior. The car is also completely numbers match and comes with documentation to prove its pedigree.
The 455cui V8 was upgraded a bit to give the already powerful car some extra
spunk and that combined with it’s manual 4 speed means this is the best you can
have. As a 4 speed car is just so much more fun than an automatic car and on
top of that it also means up to 30% more power at the rear tires than an
automatic car as that looses a lot of its torque and power because of the
hydraulic operating transmission.
So all in all, a 4 speed is just the best combination to have in a true Muscle car like this one. All the original engine parts however come with the car as well.
The body is super original and the paint on the car is also just stunning. The
complete engine and drivetrain, all the suspension systems, brakes and steering
box all was also restored to as new condition. Just look at the pictures, and you can clearly see this is a rare high quality car indeed. This car is absolutely a showpiece that you also can drive and enjoy.
The car also comes with a binder full of documentation and a copy of the cars
factory build sheet and invoices. After the restoration was completed only
recently, the car was only driven very occasionally and today there is maybe
only 1000 miles on it after it was built.
Everything on this rare beauty is of course functional and there are no flaws.
The underside of the car is also ultra clean and highly detailed as is the rest
of the car. We have seen many and sold several of these quality T/A’s over the
last decades, but we can honestly state that this one is the best we have ever
had the pleasure of offering to our clients.
The car is underway and expected to be in our showroom soon, after it will be
completely inspected and checked in our garage.
We can than walk you around the car and show you all the important and original
details and of course all the cars unique features and documentations.
On request, we can also send you more details or make a live phone/video walk
around on it.
With cars like this one it's also really important that they are truly original
and with this car being an honest car you just can't ever go wrong. PTTM is a
specialist in classic Muscle cars and we can assure you that this car is as
real as it gets.
From its color to its drivetrain and all of its options, this car is the real deal.
We estimate more than 125k was invested in the cars' restoration alone ( without
the value of the car itself) and for the price we will offer it you just can't
go wrong, let alone restore one even if you could find an all original car such as this one.
So if you're looking to get something really special and one of the last best handling and true V8 performing musclecars, then this might well be your next car. Today the classic Pontiac Firebirds are amongst the highest sought after cars and their prices are also going up and up
So besides the fact that you can buy yourself a true piece of
classic American muscle, it’s also a very good investment for your money as
this is a true and rare collectible car. The value of a real original and
restored car like this one will keep on ricing for many more years to come.
We have seen some being sold for around and well over the 100k marker already
and official market watchers and car appraisers all agree that these car's will
soon be worth even considerably more as they are just very rare to find,
especially cars as original and with these colors and options and its very
desirable 4 speed transmission. As they are the best of the best.
