1973 Super Duty Trans Am

Some info on this car , I purchased it in Feb 1987 for $7,000. When I purchaed this car the SD455 motor was rarely spoke of even in Pontiac crowds. The car is originaly Brewster Green but was painted white back in the mid to late 70's thats when the large and small birds were added and yes that would be wrong but that is the way the person who painted it wanted it. The condition of the paint today is not great but this car is not a restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with trailered cars, I am not afraid to drive it, I take it to cruise in's, I have done 200mile day trips, I have taken it to the track and it runs consistant 13.10 (best time 12.96 @ 107) enjoy it with the family, not afraid if someone leans on it or touches it, although I try to keep it out of the rain if possible. About the paint, what would be correct for this car would be Brewster Green paint and the small bird on the nose (one option that was not ordered for this car was the large hood bird which was an option in 73). So although not original this is the way this car appeared back in the day. The rest of the body and interior is original, the car is loaded with options that include , CUSTOM CLOTH, PW, PL, A/C, REAR WINDOW DEFROST, LIGHT GROUP, TINTED WINDOWS, REAR CONSOLE, FM STEREO, EXTERIOR MOLDING TRIM PACKAGE, sealed maintenance free battery (it had no fill plugs). RTS (radial tuned suspension) which was an option for the first time in 1973 trans am and formula, this included radial ttires with about a 1/2 white wall stripe and the suspension change which I think was about 1/2 degree negative camber. As for the motor it was rebuilt back in 1991, .030 overbore, heads milled about .080, 030 SD pistons, match port heads, RA IV hyd cam, roller rockers, 2 1/2 flowmaster with stock style cross over muffler and Griffin radiator for 95 degree florida days, all else stock. I have considered painting it to get the original color back but I think I would start to baby the car. It's so much fun the way is it now.

133266 / 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Super Duty
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/brpb3mq If you missed the opportunity to take home our RKM Performance restored SD-455 a few months ago, this badass Cameo Firebird is your second chance to become king of the muscle car hill! Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility, and delivered to John Kralovetz via Bill Mowbray Motors in Brownsville, Texas, this awesome F2 Trans Am's factory correct appearance is simply spectacular. Thanks to spending most of its life in the warm and dry climate of the Southwestern United States, the car's rounded body was fairly straight when its restoration began; and given that body's distinct lack of rust, it should come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock solid. Of course, by the looks of this Pontiac's super smooth finish, someone must've spent weeks alone blocking and sanding every one of its panel in hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once the car's correct coat of Cameo White urethane was sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell, decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted Screamin' Chicken hood decal, I'd say they definitely accomplished that goal. This car's highly detailed SD-455, which hangs a correct 490132 casting number and a November (K) 11th (11) of 1972 (2) casting date behind a correct XD engine stamp, has been bored .030 over, completely balanced and fully rebuilt to all its showroom glory. At the top of that big engine, a traditional Trans Am underhood induction system feeds fresh air to a correct 4-barrel carburetor that's bolted to a correct Pontiac intake. That intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique, high flow cylinder heads which have been equipped with Crane 1.65 roller rockers, high quality ARP rocker studs and traditional stamped steel valve covers. And those heads utilize a nodular iron crankshaft, Clevite main bearings, Clevite rod bearings, ARP Speedpro pistons and rings, and an NOS "Y" camshaft to create rocket-like combustion. Spark for that combustion is provided by a traditional points distributor which shoots fire through correct Packard TV R Suppression wires. Waste from that combustion is handled by fully restored Exhaust manifolds which roar into a stainless true dual Exhaust system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator which is hooked to fresh hoses via correct tower clamps and a correct plastic fan shroud. Behind that monster motor a virtually indestructible GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission, which wears a 1973 (73) Super Duty-specific (P2Q) tag and a correct partial VIN, sends power to a familiar 10 bolt Safe-T-Track rear end that 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 and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. At the center of the car, a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system utilizes an X-pipe crossover and welded Magnaflow mufflers to bark out a deep, vintage roar. And all this road ready hardware rolls on a restored set of Pontiac Rally II wheels which spin proven 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around pristine arrowhead center caps. In terms of interior décor, Pontiac's 70s team was firing on all eight cylinders. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats, like-new carpet, which is carefully protected by thick rubber mats, displays no fading or unraveling; and between those seats, a molded black console props an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome shifter and a factory correct 8-track player. At the sides of the car, hard to find door panels hang pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. And in front of the driver, an optional tilt steering column spins a black Formula steering wheel around an engine turned instrument panel, sliders for the car's climate system and a correct Delco AM radio. If your definition of classic Detroit muscle is a highly accurate, beautifully presented, meticulously crafted Pontiac, it's your lucky day!

132856 / 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cty9h5l 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.
