This fully sorted 1977 Trans Am Special Edition is a documented, numbers
matching Y82 Special Edition that features Pontiac's highly desirable W72
400 engine, a 4-speed transmission and, best of all, a fresh frame-off
Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in April of 1977 as
one of only 2,699 Y82 Special Editions, this pristine black and gold Trans
Am was shipped right up Interstate 71 to Haydocy Pontiac in Columbus, Ohio
where it began a 35 year existence filled with immaculate maintenance and
impeccable care. Today, after a highly detailed frame-off restoration, it
presents as practically brand new and displays a spectacular coat of GM
code 19 Starlight Black paint on top of smooth and solid body panels which
are as straight and as the day they left the showroom floor. On top of
those cool black panels, a fresh set of Special Edition exclusive full
outlining stripes complement an awesome Special Edition exclusive gold and
matte gold trimmed 'screaming chicken' hood decal which is one of the most
iconic automotive brandings in history.
Pop the black and gold hood and you'll find this Trans Ams all original 6.6
liter W72 V8 which wears a correct 500557 casting number and a correct
27N191886 partial VIN. At 400 cubic inches, the Pontiac 6.6 litre was
already the largest engine you could buy in 1977; and by utilizing smaller
"6X" heads and a revised camshaft, it created bigger compression and
successfully reversed almost a decade of declining horsepower numbers. At the
top of the motor, a correct Rochester 4-barrel carburetor sucks air through
the cars awesome shaker scoop. Below that carburetor, original GM corporate
blue paint coats the entire block; and original Exhaust manifolds send spent gases into a high
performance factory Exhaust system.
All the hard parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to
the brake Booster and optional air
conditioning hanging on the fire wall are factory correct. And as expected
tags, markings and stamps are just where they should be from the date coded
core support to the cars freshly cleaned cowl tag.
At the bottom of this slick F-body, solid floorpans tell the story of years
of excellent maintenance, and a fresh rebuilt suspension tells the story of
an excellent restoration. Behind the motor, an original Borg Warner T10
4-speed transmission, which wears a correct 1304065903 casting number and a
correct 27N191866 partial VIN, sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end
which has been restored to factory specifications. Below that stellar
powertrain, a rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering,
thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs combines with standard
issue power front disc brakes and rear drums to provide quick stops and
great handling. And at the corners of the car, restored aluminum Pontiac
snow flake wheels spin Special Edition exclusive gold paint around 'red
bird' center caps and correct GR70-15 Goodyear Steelgard white letter
Open this Trans Am's massive black doors and you'll find a fully restored
optional velour interior that wraps Special Edition exclusive gold trim in
a whole lot of old school style! The cars rebuilt seats are firm, crisp and
look every bit as nice and rich as their velour name implies. Below those
seats, like-new black carpet, which is carefully protected by factory
replacement floor mats, displays no fading or unraveling; and between the
seats, a silver trimmed console props buttons for the cars power windows
behind a chrome Hurst shifter. At the top of the car, a stain-free
headliner is stretched tight around the cars Hurst T-tops. At the sides of
the car, pitch black door panels hang pristine pull straps and new chrome
door handles below Special Edition exclusive gold badging. And in front of
the driver, an excellent looking engine turned gold dash houses crystal
clear gauges, controls for heat and air conditioning, and the cars original
Delco-GM AM/FM stereo behind a correct gold Formula steering wheel and
optional tilt steering column.
