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.

1973 Pontiac Trans Am
Here's an amazingly preserved '73 Trans Am that was pulled from the desert
after sitting for 20 years and brought back to life! It's a 1 owner,
matching numbers, highly desirable, 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am that is
completely rock solid! It's powered by the original 455ci V8 and a turbo 400 automatic transmission! It has power
steering, power disc brakes, and a 10 bolt posi trac rear end! The car has
been upgraded with a full custom new Flowmaster dual Exhaust system with cross over pipe, has a new
master cylinder, new battery, new belts and hoses, and a complete tune up!
Inside, the old interior has been replaced with brand new vinyl upholstery
on the bucket seats and door panels, along with a new headliner and carpet
kit. Other wise, the dash remains stock and fully functional with a factory
tach and gauges! All the lights, signals, gauges, and wipers work as they
should and the car is ready to be daily driven! This thing is in such
amazing condition that the red oxide primer is still intact on the floor
pans! This has all the classic Trans Am features from the shaker hood and
decals, to the rear spoiler! It still sits on the stock 15 inch wheels with
new 245/60/15 BFG tires for that perfect muscle car look! This is a true
survivor car from the desert of California! It starts, runs, and drives
