If this car doesn't put a smile on your face, then I don't know what will. This 1973 Trans Am is a rare options delete car that was ordered with no hood bird and no added options. The finish is a very flat and slick PPG Buccaneer Red base-Clear paint. This was the original color for the car and it wears it beautifully! It was restored with a nod towards being a quality resto-mod as you will see from the list of upgrades below. Only 3,130 automatic Trans Ams were produced in 1973 and this one still retains its numbers matching TH400 transmission. It was JUST rebuilt with a Hayes rebuild kit, Allstar 2400 stall converter, Fairbanks shift kit and new poly trans mounts were installed.

Bolted to the numbers matching TH400 is a 74 dated Y-Code 455 that is rebuilt with quality parts. This 455 is equipped with a Forged Eagle Crank, Kaufman D-Port Aluminum Heads, Ferrea Stainless 2.11/1.66 Valves, Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake, Holley Street Avenger 770 Carb, Holley Fuel Pump, Full Roller Top End, ARP Hardware throughout, Clevite 77 Bearings, TRW Forged Aluminum Flat Top Pistons, MSD 6AL Electronic Ignition, MSD Aluminium Vacuum Advance Distributor, MSD Plug Wires, Hooker Comp D-Port Ceramic Coated Headers, Pypes 2.5" Exhaust with V-Tube Mufflers and X-Pipe.

Suspension has been setup with Hotchkis 2.5" Lowering Kit, Anti-Roll Equipment and Sub-Frame Connectors. The car is rolling on 17" Year One Honeycomb Wheels! There are 275/40ZR17 tires on all four corners. All of this works in unison to provide a better than original ride and handling. If you like your cars better than stock, then this is one to give a serious look.
