Description

Lot #1060 - This has been meticulously restored to factory specifications. It was previously owned and just underwent a professional, two-year, frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration by Super Duty expert Steve Schappaugh of Muscle Car Memories Restorations. Built in Norwood, OH, this car was delivered to Bill Petty Motor Company in Union City, TN. Matching-numbers car utilizing many NOS parts, and one of only 731 automatic transmission Super Duties built in 1974. It recently won a Gold Award at the 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, IL. Completely restored to new black interior with white seats (tuxedo); rare with this deluxe custom interior. It sits on Rally ll wheels with trim rings and Goodyear white-letter tires as original equipment. It has a documented correct EGR valve and distributor, LS2x intake manifold, matching VIN engine block and transmission, correct carburetor, correct exhaust manifolds, 455 SD V8 290hp at 4,000 rpm, 395 ft/lbs at 3,200 rpm. Interior features include custom bucket seats, custom rear seat, custom carpets, Formula steering wheel, Rally gauges (including clock and tachometer), center console, ashtray lamp and stereo 8-track player.

By the looks of this Pontiac's super-smooth finish, weeks alone were spent blocking and sanding every one of its panels in achieving this laser-straight collector-quality showpiece. The meticulous application of this car's correct coat of Cameo White urethane, sealed in a glossy clear coat shell, decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted Screamin' Chicken hood decal - this collector quality Trans Am has it all. This high-quality, meticulous restoration left no bolt or nut unturned and has definitely created a unique visual presentation that is both refined and aggressive. Concours Gold Winner at MCACN 2015.
