1985 Pontiac Trans-Am Experimental Prototype Kammback Concept, VIN #0000EX4796. Genuine former General Motors test platform (mule) equipped with G-code HO V8 5 speed, factory air, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power door locks, cruise, tilt, AM/FM stereo cassette, glass T-Tops, and Pontiac TA mag wheels. Extensively shown and promoted at auto shows, as well as in magazines. EX4796 was put into service as a Pace Car for the PPG and IMSA Race Series for 1985 with a roof mount light bar and two-way communications equipment. The Kammback Concept failed to advance after 1985, however, this car was stored at GM for 13 years in the Pontiac Engineering Car Collection until a local Detroit area Pontiac dealer and collector, John McMullen, was able to acquire it. Experimental cars normally go to the crusher but this one, by the good graces of Pontiac, escaped and has survived. While in the McMullen collection, this car was professionally restored in meticulous detail by Scott Tiemann of Supercar Specialties of Portland, Michigan right down to the undercarriage white floor pans, prior to being sold to the John O'Quinn collection in 2007. These type restorations normally cost between $80,000.00 to $125,000.00. The White exterior is graced by Dove Gray leather interior trim and is in outstanding condition, as is the engine compartment and undercarriage. The Kammback Concept has been editorialized by Motor Trend magazine (cover & multi-page spread) in June 1977 and August 1985 (This car), and we possess a 3-ring binder of this car's history, the McMullen collection, the John O'Quinn collection, Scott Tiemann's Supercar Specialties, the Kammback Concept & history which is also all available on the Internet. We also have a letter from (PHS) Pontiac Historical Services which further documents this car, its story, and history. Recently invited to the 2015 Concours d'Elegance of America and the November 2015 Muscle Car and Corvette National Show in Chicago for a special lobby display. Now part of ProTeam's Personal Reserve Collection. Questions? Email - [Email Dealer]
