1975 Pontiac Firebird TransAm
California Car, A/C, High-Output 455, Posi
1975 Pontiac Firebird TransAm for sale. This California car was purchased from its original owner in 1984 by an undercover FBI agent who modified the vehicle to use as a surveillance and getaway car. He owned it the rest of his life; then, it was sold to a collector friend a couple of years ago.
This example was delivered new, finished in white with its black interior. It came equipped with a 400ci engine and a 350 automatic transmission. The FBI owner wanted more speed and performance, so in 1992 at 84k miles, he bought a 455 block and had it built to high output super duty specifications. It has a high-output block, Edelbrock aluminum heads, Edelbrock aluminum intake, high-output cast-iron d-port exhaust manifolds, and a 10-bolt positraction rear end. This engine has since been rebuilt and now has around 38k miles on it. He also made many other upgrades, as well as the suspension. It starts, runs, drives, and performs beautifully with insane power, tight suspension, perfect shifting, and excellent brakes. It currently shows 95,058 miles and has turned once. Its longtime owner took meticulous care of this unique car, kept excruciatingly detailed notes, all included along with both sets of keys.
The exterior was repainted by the second owner many years ago in Dupont Imron and shows well. The car was garaged and detailed regularly and has held up nicely. There is no rust in the body, and the floors and inner/outer rockers, along with the frame, are in excellent shape. It rides on 15-inch Rally wheels with BF Goodrich radial TA P225 60 R15's all around. Tires are a bit aged but appear relatively soft with plenty of tread life.
The inside is primarily original yet tidy. It has nice carpet, dash, panels, and cards. The passenger seat has a split that has been taped. Interior items are in good working order, including gauges, odometer, voltmeter, fuel gauge, water temperature, and oil pressure. The horn and clock do not work. The stereo is in good working order, power windows move up and down with ease, and all lighting works properly, including the blinkers. The trunk is rust-free with good inner rear quarter panels; it has insulation though the factory trunk mat is not present. The jack is not shown but will be included with the car.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a beautiful TransAm, a California car with a short owner's list and a great story! Be sure to check out all 294 photos and the video at www.leftcoastclassics.com. Call or text Donn with questions, shipping, and financing options. 707-332-8331.
