1973 Pontiac Trans Am SD 455

Pontiac Trans Am SD 455. Rare opportunity to buy one of only 252 built, 1of 180 automatics, 1st year Buccaneer red with factory A/C, do some research, the story on 1973 SD Trans AMs is amazing we are not going to attempt to educate buyers on their desirability. Definitely a 5 star blue chip muscle car. We have extensively photo documented this car, we have tried to picture every number and detail please read our description and view all pictures before asking questions. This SD has been in storage since 1982, last inspected in Central Texas 1982, last registered in 1985. it was special ordered by a customer and sold new by Andy Klein Pontiac in Overland Kansas, next document we have of the car was in Arkansas, Baxster County and was sold on July 10 1981, then registered in Austin Texas. It was driven for a short period of time then covered and stored until 9/2008 when it was discovered. Next owner picked up the car on a trailer put it in storage and never touched it, we heard about the car purchased it and serviced it recently. This will be the first time it has been offered publicly for sale, last transactions were private sales. It is best described as an honest unmolested, unrestored, correct, numbers matching survivor that has had recent mechanical as needed service. The SD engine is one of the most valuable and expensive engines to obtain given that fact we did not want to risk running this engine after it sitting for 28 years. We pulled the engine and had a local expert completely go though it, he said it is in amazing condition and completely correct internally, standard bore, original rods, pistons crank, heads, block etc.. No cracks, no damage, no repair it has been fully balanced, polished and fully rebuilt. No expense spared. We believe it to be totally correct from the Shaker to the pan. Here are all the numbers we found. If one is not correct I am sure that one of your Pontiac Gurus will let us know. The original build sheet was found in the car and is posted along with the PHS papers, original manuals and a service manual. To see all the factory options please read the build sheet, we believe the car is complete and currently optioned as it left the factory with the exception of the rear-end gears have been changed to 3.73 the original 3.08 set-up comes with the car and appears to be in excellent condition. The engine has been painted the correct SD color, brackets etc.. Detailed and painted proper color. The trunk spatter paint and red oxide primer on undercarriage/floors is original, the floors are excellent, some scaly rust on one rear frame rail, clearly pictured. Some rust on bottom of rear quarters and around wheel lip moldings, minor rust starting at bottom of fender. Overall a solid, straight stellar body, no rust in dash, cowl or firewall area, very nice jambs, rockers, sills etc.. Not your typical rusty T/A. Remember it has been stored in dry central Texas since 1982. The interior is original and very nice survivor quality, minor tears in front seats otherwise presentable. The bird was removed from the hood prior to 1982 and you can see the outline, prior owners believed this to be an original paint car, the only evidence of repaint we see is trunk lid. The paint is blistered, patinaed and still has some shine, tough to find an unrestored honest SD, if you are looking for an honest numbers matching correct car this is it, if you are looking for a nut bolt trailer queen this car is not it. Along with complete engine rebuild, the car has new tires, brakes, fuel system, all fluids have been changed and new exhaust. The original front calipers come with the car. The engine runs great and yes it is strong and fast. Here are the numbers we have found on car and again we have posted pictures of all of these numbers.
