Description

Lot #359 - Rebuilt matching-numbers engine with 91,130 original miles and several performance upgrades such as: 750cfm Holley carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, Pertronix HEI distributor with new black Taylor 8mm wires, Flow Kooler water pump, fuel pump, Edelbrock Performer-Link timing chain, Summit high-capacity transmission pan, Summit differential support cover, B&M shift improver kit for transmission, Jet Hot ceramic coated headers and LED air fuel gauge oxygen sensor for fine tuning. A newer 2.5" Flowmaster American Thunder complete exhaust system from headers to splitter tail pipes was added to this Trans Am and sounds amazing at idle and all cruising speeds. This Trans Am was treated to one of the best, most highly desired, and rarely seen upgrades, a functional Ram Air shaker flap. During the restoration the color was changed to Nocturne Blue as well as blue interior. This Trans Am runs and drives extremely well and is a strong runner with a great muscle car sound. Recent professional paint job with new decals on a very solid and straight body. No visible rust on body or frame. Brand new 15x8 snowflake wheels and center caps with just installed new 245/60/15 white-letter tires. It has a fully restored interior with nice seat covers and newer carpet, headliner and package tray. Door panels, dash, and console are all in excellent shape. Custom stereo was added with new front center speaker and rear 6x9 speakers.
