Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS

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
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
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!
