1976 Special Edition Trans AM
This car was built to commemorate Pontiac's 50th Anniversary. Commonly referred to as the 'Gold Editon', some of the features include gold trim on the honeycomb wheels, gold grille lingers and headlamp bezels, gold dash, steering center cap, plus other features not listed. Finished in starlight black with gold striping and black vinyl interior, a total of 2,590 examples were produced, only 1628 with the 6.6L.
This is a documented 3-owner car, nicely equipped with the 6.6L V8, auto transmission, power steering and brakes, factory air and a Kenwood Stereo system. With only 44,650 miles showing on the odometer; based on the various receipts I have, I believe this to be accurate.

William Leland III, the great-great nephew of Cadillac founder Henry Leland, ordered this 1979 Trans Am in 1978 after his father agreed to co-sign for the loan.
Imagine buying a new muscle car – something iconic and inherently cool – only to hardly ever drive it and leave it largely untouched.
