Premier Pontiac Trans Am Dealers and Restoration


1976 Trans Am 455 4 Speed M/T  REF#1286 

Vehicle Description

For sale by owner this 1976 Firebird Trans Am PHS, 25 Month rotisserie restoration SHOW quality paint. NOT NUMBERS MATCHING but was born a 455 4spd . 1 of 7528 cars made with the last 455 engines. This car was purchased in June 2014 and went through a 25 Month restoration. The car was purchased all apart, the owner had passed away. I have put together multiple second generation cars over the years. I spent a great deal of time on this restoration swapping parts and body panels to get nice fit and gaps. Needless to say it may not have the parts it was born with but it got the best of what I have. Nice rust free fenders and doors, see pics some small rust repair to quarter all metal finished. Floor pan at drivers footwell replaced.

I have monitored Hagerty and NADA classic pricing since owning this car with an upward trend. NADA adds 10% for 4 speed and 20% for 455 engine. Last price range on NADA was 17,065 to $65,130. I even went to Scottsdale 2016 to view a couple 76 Trans Ams selling there lot 103 and 931 specifically. I would compare mine to 931 that sold for $51,700

These cars a sky rocketing and I am in no hurry to sell it, want to enjoy it for a while. I have put a few hundred miles on this car going to local car cruises. This car is the best performance car I have ever had. It is comfortable to drive, handles and performs.

The car has been appraised by a 35 year veteran appraiser. I sold 2 cars previously appraised they sold accurate to appraised value. Buyer will receive a copy of appraisal done 5-17-17. I will not give appraised value prior to purchase. Offer will need to be close to this value for car to be sold.

I will consider any 70-78 Trans Am or 79 Z code for partial trade. I will need to inspect trade or if distance too far I will be asking for a boat load of pictures.

Car is located 35 miles north of Detroit. Pickup only I do not ship. I will be available if buyer wishes to arrange shipping.

If there happens to be a picture with snowflake wheels they are no longer on car, has rally II.
