1973 Pontiac Trans Am 455
(Please Copy and Paste Link in a New Browser):
Carlyle Motors is proud to offer another unique and gorgeous Trans Am for sale. This is a PHS documented, real Brewster Green, 455 Trans Am that has been fully restored.
The paint is absolutely stunning. One of the best paint jobs we have ever seen come through our showroom. The car has been fully restored inside and out. This car has no rust and any sheet metal that had any rust was either replaced or repaired during the restoration of this car. The body is straight and the lines and gaps on this car are excellent.
The engine bay is beautifully detailed and this engine really packs a punch! The horsepower is estimated at 400 to 450 at the fly wheel and when this car starts up, there is no doubt that this is a powerful engine. The 455 engine in the car today is not the original 455 engine that came in the car but this 455 engine far exceeds what would have been stock back in 1973. If you want that muscle car rumble and 455 power, this is your car.
Here are a few highlights of the engine build. First of all, it is a true, Pontiac 455 Engine Block. The block casting code is 485428 and the front of the block is stamped with a YY which codes out as a 1974, 455 Pontiac Block. The casted date code on the block as shown in the pictures is *K163*, which codes out as November 16, 1973. This is a late 73 or early 74, Pontiac 455 block.
Other highlights of this powerful engine are as listed below:
+ Sealed Pro Pistons
+ H Beam Forged Rods
+ Eagle Forged Crankshaft
+ Federal Mogul Main, Rod, and Camshaft Bearings
+ Comp Cams XE280h Camshaft
+ Roller Rocker Arms
+ 6X-8 Heads. Completely ported and polished.
+ 1 Piece Stainless Ferrea Valves
+ 1974 Rochester Quadrajet #7044262 Rebuilt by Cliff Ruggles
+ Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold
+ Hooker Headers
+ ACCEL Ignition
+ Meldon High Pressure Oil Pump
This setup should yield about 400-450 HP at the flywheel, not yet Dyno Tested.
Exterior & Paint:
PPG top of the line base coat and clear coat were used to paint the car in its original Brewster Green color. The paint job is incredible and truly is nearly flawless. It really is that good!
All the glass for the car is brand new and was installed shortly after paint.
The interior has been fully restored and is near perfect, showroom quality. From the carpet and seats to the headliner, this car was restored with very much attention to detail. The deluxe interior is in excellent condition.
The Pypes dual exhaust system gives this car a very nice muscle car rumble. The car drives without issues and can be seen and test driven at our facility in Katy, Texas.
The car is an original air conditioned car according to the PHS documentation and all the A/C system has just been completely serviced and works great! It really does have COLD A/C! The car also has an aftermarket stereo system that plays very nicely.
The suspension was completely gone through and looks to be all brand new right down to the body bushings, leaf springs and sway bars. This car drives great!
The wheels correct Rally II wheels and the tires are BF Goodrich, T/A Radials. 255/60R15's all the way around plus the spare. The wheels and tires alone are close to $2,000.00.
This car was an original automatic car but has been upgraded to a 5-Speed Tremec which shifts very smoothly and really helps bring out the nice power of this great car.
The build is less than 5 years old and the car has just over 2,000 miles on it since the build.
