For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6pccq85
This restored to original 1973 Pontiac Grand Am has won multiple national
awards and been featured on the cover of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
It is probably the best 1973 Grand Am in the world and is one of the most
unique and interesting Pontiacs in the classic car hobby.
Recently frame-off restored, this solid and surprisingly complete first
year Grand Am was originally delivered to Friend Pontiac in Beaver
Pennsylvania. Its European inspired design translates well in correct GM
code 74 Florentine Red on top of bodywork that displays no signs of major
repairs and was undoubtedly very straight before the restoration started.
If you check out the photos closely, you can sight down the cars curvy
flanks and see that there are no ripples in the sheetmetal and panel
alignment is spot-on thanks to factory correct gaps and the 100% original
Pop this cars beaked hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch L65
engine that hasn't been torn apart since it left GM's Pontiac Michigan
plant almost 40 years ago. It's an extremely strong running engine which
idles so smoothly and drives so well that the previous owner decided to err
on the side of authenticity and leave it untouched. At the top of the
engine, a satin black air cleaner displays a correct "400-2" decal and
sends air into a correct 2 barrel carburetor that is fed through a correct
AC fuel filter. Below the carburetor, Pontiac's tried and true 400 wears
correct blue paint from its valve covers to its oil pan and displays
correct reproduction decals and chalk marks. On the right side of the
engine, the cars custom Harrison air conditioning system has been restored
to its proper state and includes a correct Frigidaire compressor, and on
the left side of the engine you'll find a fresh brake Booster and master cylinder.
Behind the big 6.5 liter engine you'll find an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a Safe-T-Track Posi-traction rear end with comfortable 3.23
gears. Holding that smooth drivetrain off the ground is an optional special
suspension with the firm ride option which includes computer selected
springs, firmer shocks, taller front spindles that were borrowed from the
F-body, and 1.125 front and .94 rear stabilizer bars. On top of that
serious handling hardware is a variable ratio power steering system that
has good feel and GM's standard power front disc and rear drum braking
system. The cars passive stock Exhaust
has been upgraded to a welded aluminized true dual system that features an
H-pipe and two chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension, steering and
brakes have all been properly maintained and the chassis looks
exceptionally clean given the age and authenticity of the car. At the
corners, great looking 15 inch Pontiac snow flake wheels wear 225/70
Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. However, if you're more of a traditionalist, the
cars original finned hubcaps are included with the sale.
Inside this Pontiac, high style is the name of the game. The original
Oxblood vinyl interior is 100% intact and in spectacular condition with
rich looking Morrokide buckets that include both reclining backs and twist
adjustable lumbar support. The beautifully detailed dashboard houses a
great looking African Crossfire Mahogany gauge pod that contrasts well
against the cars highly detailed gauges and chrome trimmed air vents. At
the center of the dash, controls for the cars custom HVAC system and an
original Stereo Eight 8-track player sit above a pristine console that is
slightly canted toward the driver. At the sides of the seats, the nicely
preserved padded door panels include chrome handles for the doors and
windows next to upscale angled pull straps. The steering wheel is the cars
original optional sport wheel that features bight satin aluminum spokes and
a factory fresh Pontiac branded horn button. The original nylon blend loop
carpet looks great under heavy duty rubber floor mats, and the burgundy
headliner is exceptionally nice with no glaring issues or signs of age.
With the luxury and flair of a European sports sedan and the style and
grunt of a fire breathing American muscle car, this is one old Pontiac that
has personality by the buckets.
1977 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX - ONE OF THE BEST ORIGINAL SURVIVORS
If you ever wanted to see a brand new Pontiac Grand Prix, this is it.
White vinyl roof is like new, white vinyl seats are like new. Red paint is
in fantastic condition. Chrome perfect. Wheels are perfect. 168,247 GP's
were made this year, versus 66,741 LJ coupes or 53,442 SJ coupes. A V8 400
cid, 180/200 hp was the basic powerplant for Grand Prix. This beauty costs
$ 5,120 at the dealer. I've seen a lot of wonderful original survivor cars
but I believe this one " takes the cake ", it's in such outstanding
condition. I want this car..........how 'bout you? Thanks very much for
viewing this original survivor '77 Pontiac Grand Prix.
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

Sehr Performance Machine / Randi's 400 Pontiac
Randi came to us with a 400 Pontiac project for his 1968 Firebird. He
didn't want to go crazy on the build but he wanted something that would
give him performance that is better than original.
With that goal in mind Scott did some custom porting on his heads, upgraded
his valve train and went with a Custom COMP cam and lifters and aluminum
roller rockers. We maintained his complete original rotating assembly but
had to re-balance his crankshaft, it had been poorly balanced sometime in
the past and was out by 127 grams on one end and 181 grams on the other. A
single plane intake with a 780 Quick Fuel carb got it breathing and the
fire is lit with a Flamethrower ignition package. Custom cut and fitted
8mm plug wires are standard equipment here at Sehr. Headman custom coated
headers will be added at installation time.
The results were a satisfying 543.5 Hp @ 5500rpm and torque reading of
519.8 @ 5400rpm. Corrected to sea level the numbers are 577 Hp and 551 Tq
with nearly 400 lb of torque at 3500rpm.
1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible. 1 of 8 In the world (Read Description!)
Yes! This is only One of eight! No typo! $1 MILLION + worth. For this
PROOF ITS 1 of 8:
THIS SITE USED FOR DATA! NOT MY WORDS!
"FACT: The '69 Trans Am was introduced to the press on December 8th, 1968
at Riverside Raceway in Riverside, CA. One of the cars given to the press
to test was the pre production T/A that was painted Pallidium Silver (no
stripes). Look closely at the pictures of the silver T/A and you will
notice the hood and air extractors have very sharp, hard lines, more in
line with the original design sketches. The March 1969 issue of Hot Rod
Magazine stated the hood on this silver car was fiberglass. Note: The
silver T/A was also a RA IV car. (source for the above date was Jim
Wangers' book Glory Days)
FACT: Pontiac made a total of 697 '69 Trans Ams (coupes and convertibles)
FACT: 8 of those were convertibles, 689 were coupes. (As a side note that
really has nothing to do with this, there was also a '69 Firebird
convertible used on the television program "I Dream Of Genie" that had what
appeared to be a variation of the '69 T/A hood, side air extractors mounted
on the quarter panels and a T/A style rear spoiler. The car was bright
green. I don't believe this to be a real T/A but found it interesting that
PMD would send out a Firebird mocked up similar to a T/A for a TV show.
Maybe they didn't. Maybe it was customized elsewhere.).
FACT: All 8 convertibles were RA III cars.
FACT: Of the 8 convertibles, 4 were automatics, and 4 were manuals
transmission cars. (Side Note: It has been documented that of the 8
convertible Trans Ams made, 7 are known to exist, most of those in good
condition. The 8th is still a mystery. While I have read that the 8th has
been located many different times, that seems to just be a rumor at this
point. There was a blurb in Pontiac Enthusiast Magazine several years ago
that they believed they had found this 8th convertible T/A in Western
Canada and that they'd have more info at a later date. However, I have
never heard any more about that. So until the 8th shows up in pictures
somewhere and is proved documented to be the 8th, I would assume the
location of the 8th is still unknown.)
FACT: Trans Ams were built at two different assembly plants: Norwood, Ohio
(N) and Van Nuys, California (L) (coded L for Los Angeles). The number of
Trans Ams built by each assembly plant and block code are as follows:
WQ: 506 (14 3-speeds, 492 4-speeds, including 4 convertibles)
YW: 117 ( including 4 convertibles)
WQ: 14 (1 3-speed, 13 4-speeds)
(information from the book "Pontiac Muscle Car Performance, 1955-1979, by
FACT: The original design for the Trans Am was actually proposed by the
famous auto customizer, Gene Winfield. Working with artist Harry B.
Bradley, they approached Pontiac in the fall of 1967 with sketches (I hope
to have these sketches posted here soon). Since he consulted for the model
company AMT, Winnfield knew 18 months ahead of time what the 1969 Firebirds
would look like. He and Bradley proposed the hood, scoops, air extractors
and deck lid spoiler that pretty much ended up on the Trans Am (other than
a few minor alterations). Winfield called his car the "Can Am" (is this
where Pontiac later got the name Can Am from?) and his proposed color
scheme was chartreuse and gold instead of white and blue. All of the items
Winfield and Bradley proposed were bolt-on and functional. (Info from the
book The Fabulous Firebird by Michael Lamm)
