Here is a wonderful example of the biggest automotive icon from the mid-70's: the Pontiac Trans Am. This 1976 model is the genuine article, with its numbers-matching 6.6L engine, rare Goldenrod Yellow paint, and factory air conditioning. And it drives every bit as good as it looks.
This is a real Trans Am, as designated by the "W" in the VIN along with the "WS4" on the Norwood cowl tag. It is a very solid car; the floors and frame pieces all appear original and in great shape. The car has been repainted its original Code 51 Goldenrod Yellow which not only looks beautiful but is a rare find. Of course, the decals have been redone as well; can you even imagine this car without them? The optional Rally II wheels with Firestone tires really add to the look too. There are also has new seals, lenses, bezels, and more.
The car has its original Pontiac YZ-code motor. This 400ci / 6.6L setup is topped by the factory 4-barrel carburetor and shaker hood scoop. It starts and runs very smoothly; it is not a big lumpity-lump type of motor. Still, it can chirp the tires with the typical Pontiac torque. The rest of the driveline consists of a TH350 automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end. There is also power steering along with power front disc brakes.
The black interior looks great. The seats have been recovered and are in excellent condition. The dash pad, door panels, carpet, and reflective "fish scale" dash and console inserts have also been replaced. The headliner is in very good condition too. The heat / defrost / air conditioning (converted to R134a) all function properly, along with the factory rear window defogger. The horn, wipers, and parking brake all work good too, as do the speedometer and other gauges (except the clock). The audio system sounds nice with a modern Alpine head unit, Clarion speakers, and a power antenna.
Note this Trans Am also comes with a copy of the original window sticker from PHS, which shows it being delivered to Dick McFeely Pontiac on December 9, 1975. Listed options include air conditioning, hood decal, Rally II wheels, and front console. It also includes the original owners manuals.
This is a car you can really enjoy driving. The power steering, power brakes, and automatic transmission make for an easy cruise, while the nice interior and a/c will keep you comfortable. Further, there aren't many cars that have the aura of a Trans Am, and recent sales show they are in demand. Check this one out before prices get any higher.
