FACTORY TRANS AM RESTORED WITH SUPER DUTY APPEARANCE PACKAGE! ORIGINAL, NUMBERS MATCHING  455ENGINE, POWER DISC BRAKES, POWER STEERING, AIR CONDITIONING, 4-SPEED MANUAL AND MORE!! AMAZING RESTORATION AND HALF THE COST OF A REAL SD! It was a sad time for performance enthusiasts in the early 1970s. New regulations and emission controls choked out the Big 3’s power outputs. A 400hp motor in 1970 was now a 190hp motor in 1972. Lucky for us however, the engineers at Pontiac wanted to keep the excitement of driving alive. They dreamt of a Trans Am that would not only out-perform any other American offering but could also dominate exotics like Ferrari. In 1973 the Trans Am Super Duty was born. Sold in very limited production and packed with a special 455ci V8 the car was said to produce 290hp, but the torque was an astonishing 390 lb-ft. Lasting only 2 years the 455SD marked the end of the Muscle Car era. 1974 was also the last year for true dual exhaust as catalytic converters came into play, the fiberglass front end would be replaced with larger impact bumpers the following year. Not all was bad however, the famous slotted tail lights made their first appearance and if you couldn’t afford the $537 Super Duty option a 225hp 400ci and a 250hp 455ci were also available. The 1974 Pontiac Trans Am you see here was born with a L75 455ci V8 and automatic transmission. During its complete Frame-Off Nut and Bolt Restoration the car was upgraded to Super Duty Appearance and Performance. The car retains its original numbers matching 455ci V8 engine block! The engine was fully rebuilt with the original 4X hydraulic lifter heads that were ported &  along with Melling M-select upgraded camshaft, bringing it to better-than-new performance figures all the while looking completely original and factory stock!! The Borg Warner 4-Speed transmission and heavy duty clutch were also added at this time. The car features rebuilt suspension including a limited slip Posi-Traction rear end. New shocks, new body mounts, new bushings, new engine & transmission mounts and so on. Finished in its factory code correct Buccaneer Red with factory code correct Custom Black Interior. The car also features factory Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Center Console, Soft Ray Glass, Rally II Wheels, remote mirror, color coded sport mirrors, day/night interior mirror, leather wrapped wheel, full gauge package, Pypes Race Pro stainless steel exhaust system, original space saver spare tire, jack and tire inflator can. Sold new at Hendrickson Pontiac in Villa Park, IL, the car is well documented with original owners manual, maintenance and emissions booklets, and full PHS docs. The car is in amazingly wonderful condition and would be a proud addition to any collection or a great start to one. It is a factory Trans Am 455ci car with extensive upgrades to become a car that is almost unobtainable! The details will fool even the strongest Pontiac critics and experts into believing it is an original! The performance is unmatched and this car is an absolute thrill ride!! It pushes you back in the seat in any gear, but also hugs corners and stops with the best! The car was completed in approximately 2009 and was sparsely driven but professionally cared for since. The paint, decals, interior, trim and furthermore, are of the highest caliber and were done professionally! The car is very solid now and was so before its restoration, as evident by the original factory spot welds on the body and undercarriage. The car is very well detailed inside and out and is ready for the next owner to show and enjoy! Please contact us with any questions you have about the car. International World Wide shipping is also available and we are happy to assist in transportation arrangements if needed!
