Fully Loaded, PS, PB, PW, PDL, AC, Cruise Control, Original T-Tops, Clock, Tilt Wheel, Original Snowflake Aluminum 8" Wheels, BF Goodrich Radial TA's, Heavy Duty Cooling System, Heavy Duty Alternator, Rear Defroster, Courtesy Lamp Group, Tinted Glass, Retro Sound Radio with Bluetooth and P/Antenna and more. The vehicle was restored in 2016 and has been driven easy careful miles since the restoration. This car was built in Van Nuys and sold at a local Los Angeles dealership on 6/30/1979. I have full documentation including original window sticker, dealer invoice, salesman hand written bill of sale and build sheet.
I purchased vehicle from the original owner in Riverside California in 2016, I'm the second owner and upon acquiring the vehicle began an award winning 2-person, Monday-Saturday frame on restoration by two older auto body craftsman that took great pride in their work. The TA was all original and immediately taken apart with all body panels, spoilers, interior, dash, engine, trans, cooling system, ac system, exhaust system, heater core, auto glass, seals & weatherstripping either replaced, restored or rebuilt. The original 403 engine was rebuilt with a higher perf cam and mild head work to give more horsepower (about 325) and torque while keeping engine with original look. Original 350 automatic trans was rebuilt with a stronger shift for smooth but solid shifts. Original Positraction Rear End was rebuilt with new axles, bearings, brakes & calipers. Body mounts, bushings, rubber seals etc were all checked and replaced if needed. Hi flow custom exhaust & catalytic convertor (stock looking) was added to the stock exhaust manifolds to give a great Pontiac sound and more performance but still pass CA smog. New AC Compressor was added and system works well.
Interior was completely restored with original hobnail upgraded cloth seats, Special Edition dash & gold package including new Vintage Retro Sound radio with bluetooth, electric antenna and upgraded speakers. Some gauges & switches were replaced while others looked and worked perfectly including rear trunk release button in glove box. Dash was completely removed, rebuilt and then reinstalled in order to give it the correct fit and gold finish for a brand new look. Car won "Best Interior" in the first local show it was entered.
Once the body was meticulously prepped (about 3 months), the vehicle was repainted (by one of the best painters in So Orange County) and carefully put back together making sure all body panels were aligned and fit better than when it was new. T-Tops and covers are the originals and in great shape. I purchased inserts that fit under the tops to keep the interior cooler if driving on a sunny day. All decals were the higher quality 3M brand and the decal expert took 2 painstaking days to make sure the vehicle decals looked perfect. Restoration pics are available and build was performed at SparksPerformance.com in South Orange County. Finished pics are nice, but car should be seen in person to really appreciate the restoration work it received. Car is beautiful in person and always draws a crowd at local car shows or Cars & Coffee Saturday events.
Vehicle is priced at $58,000.00 OBO.
