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 http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!

7F6 HEADS AND Exhaust MANIFOLD ON SHELF
ORIGINAL CARBURATOR AND INTAKE
ORIGINAL INTERIOR (EXCEPT CARPET)
Due to a 1972 UAW strike, at which GM was the target, Firebird and Trans Am production was devastated. All told only 1286 Trans Ams were completed V(828 automatics, & 458 4-speeds). At the plant, over 2,100 Firebird and Camaro models were in various stages of assembly when the strike ended, but as these cars would not meet the new 1973 Federal standards, these cars were all scrapped ! The 1972 Trans Am production would hold the distinction of being the second lowest in history. A new cylinder head rested atop the 4-bolt block, this had a new casting number of 7F6 and was only used in 1972 and had special combustion chambers. The good part about these new heads is that they still used the horsepower producing oval ports and the accompanying large 2.11" intake and 1.77" inch Exhaust valves found in big inch Pontiac high performance engines of the past. The 068 camshaft was back for another run in the TA, and the lift remained at .408/.406 inches for intake and Exhaust. As in 1971, there was only one engine available in the Trans Am and it was subject to same hand selection of components in order to make the engines as close to the tolerances laid out in the blueprints. This engine could be mated to a pair of transmissions, the infamous "M22 Rock Crusher" Muncie 4-speed close ratio manual transmission or the sturdy 3-speed turboHydramatic 400 automatic transmission. This was the 1st year for the honey comb grille, and the last year of a functional shaker hood. The colors once again remined limited to Cameo White with blue stripes or Lucerne Blue topped with a white stripe. Lucerne Blue would have it's swan song in 1972 as a blue would not return to the Trans Am line up until 1974. The "racing' stripes that were first intoduced in '69 also made their last appearance in 1972 and no Trans Am would be striped as such until the 15th anniversary T/A in 1984.
