Lot #128 - Exceptional frame-off restoration of a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am Pro-Touring coupe. PHS-documented and delivered to D&J Pontiac-Olds in Louisburg, NC, on April 22, 1971. It has factory options of air conditioning, rear console, power brakes and power steering. Improvements to this car were thoughtfully done to add to driving pleasure and to improve reliability. From the ground up, improvements and performance enhancements include Nitto ZR-rated tires mounted on 17" billet honeycomb wheels, Global West tubular upper and lower control arms, and all new bushing and suspension pieces. Shocks are QA1 adjustable front and rear, new coils and springs. Brakes have all new material and parts, professionally done. Engine is a 455 HO date-correct service replacement V8 that has been professionally rebuilt with factory 355hp and a monster 480 ft/lbs of torque. Motor is backed by a performance-built 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission. This car features a high-horsepower, balanced aluminum driveshaft, followed up by a completely rebuilt limited-slip differential with Richmond 3.42 gears. The interior is factory blue vinyl with the exception of a custom dash plate, magnum Vintage Air, extra 3M sound-deadening pads and a custom audio radio with multi audio outputs. Exterior paint is a professionally done JetStream Blue metallic with heavy pearl. Stripes are painted with multiple layers of clear coat for a smooth finish.
