Very First Crank Original 1980 Trans Am. Has Been Sitting For 20 Years, Survivor/Project
I purchased this TA not knowing what was going to work if anything. I put a new battery in it, made sure it had oil, put transmission fluid in it. Put gas in the tank. Had to put gas down the carburetor first to prime it. It started right up and sounded great, Transmission seems to be working properly. Guages work, radio, exterior and interior lights work, clock works. everything seems to work except on window, Car does not smoke. This car is totally all original.. After this video, we found out the car had 3 bent and one broken pushrods, and she still ran..
Fun ride 0-100+
Not a hotrod by any means but sure does sound good and was fun...
