132152 / 1970 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmsk3es This spectacular, 100% numbers matching 1970½ Trans Am Ram Air IV is one of only 59 built with a 4-speed, and fully documented with a build sheet. A life-long west coast car, this was one of only 24 RA IV cars built at the Van Nuys assembly plant. Gaps are exemplary, panel fit is very good, and this might be the most well assembled early F-body I've ever seen. The Polar White paint matches the factory finish exactly, and the decals are reproductions. Out back, the ducktail spoiler fits beautifully and carries the correct TRANS AM insignia. Simply selecting RPO 342 got you the famed 370-horsepower round-port Ram Air IV engine, which delivered much more than simply an advertised 25 hp over the standard D-port Ram Air III engine. Atop that intake and under the solenoid-operated scoop, the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor makes its home. The cylinder heads are 614 castings, the block is a correct WW unit, the intake is a correct 97999 casting, and the unique Ram Air IV Exhaust manifolds have been beautifully refinished. The Muncie M20 4-speed manual is the original, matching numbers piece, while out back, the RA IV was the only Firebird to receive a 12-bolt rear end as standard equipment (this one is packed with 3.73 gears and a Posi for explosive acceleration). The heavy-duty power disc brakes have been fully rebuilt, and correct F41-spec shocks are at all four corners. It's finished off with a set of original date-coded Rally II wheels and Firestone Wide Ovals. This one sports its original code 211 Medium Bright Blue Vinyl interior. The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but the carpets are spectacularly original, as is the headliner. The trunk features that fitted floor mat, as well as a full-sized spare tire with complete jack assembly. One of the rarest Pontiacs ever built, with low original miles, 100% matching numbers, and a ton of documentation.
