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! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome Super Duty!

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.

If you're looking for the ULTIMATE pro-tourer to spend time riding in,
instead of time working on, it's an excellent place to park your money!
Commissioned as Goodguys 2010 giveaway car, this stunning Mustang was designed by Kaucher
Kustoms and built by RPM Hot Rods of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. Naturally,
the experts at RPM decided a project this cool was worthy of more than just
a glorified replica. So they executed a ground up vision that ensured the
newly christened Ford would perform every bit as good as it looks. With
parts on order and a plan in hand, the work began with a Dynacorn-supplied
'69 fastback body. When that body was smooth, many labor-intensive
modifications, which included a filled and re-imagined hood, filled and
relocated side scoops and a custom rear valence, were painstakingly
perfected. And when that canvas was solid in all the right places, a
pearlescent coat of PPG Goodguys Yello was decked with a satin black racing
stripes and subtle red pin stripes.
Riddle me this: what does an enterprising hot rod shop do when a Boss 429
or a 428 Super Cobra Jet just won't cut it? They order a professionally
built Jon Kaase racing engine that produces a Dyno-proven 770 horsepower and 720lb./ft. of
pavement melting torque! Pull the pins on this awesome Mustang's hood and you'll find a 520
cubic inch Boss Nine V8 that's been tweaked, bathed in a slick coat of
black paint and fully dressed in some of the best aftermarket components on
Behind that massaged motor you'll find a fresh Tremec T6 Magnum 6-speed
that's bolted to a tough Centerforce clutch. Lift the third pedal and that
modern transmission sends power to a Currie nine inch rear end that's
equipped with a posi-traction Detroit Locker, stout 3.89 gears and beefy 35
spline axles. And at the corners of the car, power flows to the ground
through custom Intro wheels which spin 245/40ZR18 front and 335/30ZR18 rear
BF Goodrich G-Force T/As around slightly stretched wheel openings.
Open this pony's solid-fitting doors and you'll find a tasteful custom
interior that was likely the most labor-intensive part of the car's entire
build. The firm bucket seats, factory units that were cut down to achieve a
lower seating position, are covered in Finish Line leather, stitched with
bright yellow thread and fitted with Ride Tech harnesses. In front of those
seats, the car's completely custom dash, which is detailed with a subtle
red pin stripe, hangs "GOODGUYS BOSS SNAKE" branded gauges between small
tweeter speakers, controls for Vintage Air conditioning and a custom-framed
Clarion navigation system. Beneath that dash, a leather-covered and
yellow-stitched console props an MP3 jack and controls for the car's Ride
Tech suspension system behind a short Hurst shifter and simple power window
switches. Behind that console, a custom-fabricated and leather-trimmed
cargo area, which conceals the massive amount of hardware needed for the
car's ShockWave suspension, anchors two Kicker subwoofers between two
Kicker QS quarter speakers and three Kicker IX amplifiers that produce a
combined 1,500 watts. And in front of the driver, a polished Delta D
steering wheel spins around a Flaming River tilt steering column.
If you're looking for a fully sorted pro-tourer that's scary fast and an
absolute blast to drive, we have the car for you! Call, click or visit

133268 / 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cwpz5d4
If you're in the market for a solid, highly original muscle car that will
provide years of great weekend memories, this expertly restored Coronet is
the perfect choice. In fact, we would go so far as to say this is the flat
out nicest restored 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T we've ever seen and, as the
single largest retailer of classic Mopar muscle for six years running, that
says a lot!
Fresh out of a full redesign, the 1968 Coronet wore bulging fenders, faux
scoops and generally cleaner line work than its predecessor. This R/T wears
those design cues well, dressed in an even coat of Burgundy Metallic paint.
Underneath that paint, the arrow straight body is 100% Chrysler metal
reassembled with considerably more attention to detail than the assembly
With a such a great shell, finishing it with anything less than
show-quality would have been questionable at best. That's why you'll find a
healthy list of original and NOS pieces capping off this slick B-body. From
the black-out grille to the segmented taillights, every piece is show
quality and better than new.
Under the hood, the original 440 is still in place, cranking out 375hp
according to Dodge. The motor starts easily, idles well and sounds great
through a factory-style Exhaust
system. The bay retains an authentic look to go with its original block.
From the wrinkle finish air cleaner to the correct ballast resistor, every
piece is here and showroom fresh.
Underneath, a nicely detailed undercarriage with glossy Burgundy Metallic
floorpans comes into view. In the center, an era-correct Torqueflite
three-speed automatic applies power to the ground through an 8 ¾"
differential filled with highway-friendly 3.23 gears. The suspension
remains in its original configuration with torsion bars up front and leaf
springs out back. The chassis connects to the road through a set of fifteen
inch Chrysler wheels wrapped in a combination of BF Goodrich rubber.
Open the elongated doors and you'll be greeted by a showroom fresh white
vinyl interior. In the 1960s, Chrysler was still in their luxury phase and
it shows in the design of this cabin. While the fender tag calls for red
vinyl, it's hard to argue with the decision to swap it for a full white
interior. The bucket seats are firm and supportive and the AM radio still
pulls signal loud and clear.
With a great look, excellent execution and attention to detail, and the
original engine between the frame rails, this is one to hold on to, whether
you're into cruising or investing. If a Mopar B-body has been on your
wishlist, don't miss the chance to take home this awesome '68 Coronet R/T.

Here is an excerpt from Popular Hot Rodding Magazine (September 1982) full
page write-up about the 73-74 Super Duty Trans Am.
The first and last paragraphs:
"Probably one of the most awesome engines ever produced by Pontiac was the
Super Duty which was built in two versions, 1961-1963 and 1973-1974. The
Super Duty engine was ahead of its time churning out great doses of torque
When combined with the Trans Am body style it made for an unbeatable
combination of power and handling.
All Super Duty Trans Ams came with the 8 1/2-inch 10-bolt rear end, and
with the optional 3.42 to 1 rear gearing were capable of running
13.90-second quarter mile times. If you're interested in picking up a
Super Duty T/A today, they run between $5,000 and $10,000 depending on
condition. If you can't afford one, pretend you can and take a test ride.
