This fully sorted 1973 Firebird Trans Am is one of those cars that everyone
has asked us to find for the last three years. It's a documented, early F2
'bird which features all original California sheetmetal, a tough 4-speed
transmission and, best of all, a highly desirable, numbers matching 455 V8.
Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in November of
1972, this awesome 'big block bird' was shipped across the country to Corey
Pontiac in Salinas, California where it began a 35 year existence filled
with immaculate maintenance and impeccable care. Today, still wearing all
of its original, rust-free body panels, it displays a nice looking coat of
GM code 11 Cameo White paint on top of smooth and solid surfaces that have
never been damaged in any significant way.
Take a look under this Trans Am's new-for-1973 black and blue "Screaming
Chicken" hood decal and you'll find an original 455 cubic inch L-75 V8
which wears a correct 485428 casting number, a September (I) 11th (11) of
1972 (2) casting date, a correct 102185 partial VIN and a "ZC" California
engine stamp. At 455 cubic inches, the L-75 was already one of the largest
engines you could buy in 1973; and by utilizing an undersquare bore and new
"4X" heads, it managed to meet ever increasing emissions standards while
still turning a solid 8 to 1 compression ratio into 260 horsepower and a stump
pulling 370 lb./ft. of torque! At the top of the motor, a reliable 4-barrel
carburetor sucks air through pliable piping that scavenges a cool breeze
from the car's left front fender. Below that carburetor, correct Pontiac
turquoise paint coats the entire engine block, a correct points distributor
sends fire through high quality Belden high temperature plug wires; and
original Exhaust manifolds send spent
gases into a high performance aftermarket Exhaust system.
At the bottom of this slick second generation Trans Am, solid floorpans
reflect years of sunny California living; and a fully sorted suspension
tells the story of excellent maintenance and very little storage time.
Behind the monster motor, a virtually indestructible Borg Warner 4-speed
transmission sends power to a correct 10 bolt Posi-traction rear end which
does a great job on both the back roads and the interstate. 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. All this road ready hardware rolls on a rare set
of Pontiac honeycomb wheels which spin 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As
around pristine arrowhead center caps.
Open this Pontiac's straight white doors and you'll find a fully restored
blue interior which does an excellent job of complementing the car's bright
blue Trans Am call outs! The rebuilt Morrokide vinyl bucket seats are
supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich as their exotic name
implies. Below those seats, like-new blue carpet, which is carefully
protected by factory replacement floor mats, displays no fading or
unraveling; and between the seats, a molded blue console props an enclosed
storage bin behind a chrome Hurst shifter. At the top of the car, a
stain-free headliner is stretched tight from the front window to the back
window. And at the sides of the car, standard blue door panels hang
pristine chrome door handles between chrome window cranks and vinyl
armrests. In front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash
houses crystal clear gauges, controls for heater, and a modern Sony CD
player behind a black Formula steering wheel that's complete with a blue
horn button. And behind the cockpit, a fully restored trunk hangs correct
decklid decals above a new houndstooth mat.
If you're in the market for an old school Trans Am that is the
quintessential American muscle car; here it is. Call, click or visit

Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.
