Back in 1976, it was Pontiac's Trans Am, not Chevrolet's Corvette, that was deemed by the car magazines to be the best all-around performing American sports car. That year also marked the last year that the massive 455 V8 was available in the Trans Am. A 400 V8 was standard with the torquey 455 (only available with a 4-speed manual) being optional. The holy grail '76 Trans Am is one with that 455 / 4-speed combo as they are both rarer and stronger performers than the much more common 400-powered cars which usually also had automatic transmissions. Here we have an amazing, incredibly well-kept, 36,225-mile example of a 1976 Trans Am with the 455 / 4-speed powertrain. The beautiful body is finished in factory Sterling Silver paint that's properly accented with the various Trans Am decals as well as the Honeycomb wheels fitted with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. Inside, the Firethorn Red upholstery, dash, door panels, headliner and carpet looks amazing and fitting for a real, 36k original miles car. Of course being a Trans Am it has the engine-turned dash, passenger grab handle and "Formula" steering wheel (which, oddly enough, was optional on the actual Firebird Formula). The engine and trunk compartments also present as you'd expect of a pampered, low-mileage example. Out on the road, you'd swear you stepped into a time machine as the Trans Am runs and drives like like a 3 year old car, not one that's approaching the half-century mark in age. This Trans Am is very well documented and as such includes the original bill of sale, a copy of the window sticker, the owner's manuals and even the receipt for the Ziebart rustproofing that was done when the car was new. Highlights of this amazingly original, all numbers-matching Trans Am include: 455 4-barrel V8 4-Speed Manual 3.23 Safe-T-Track rear end Heavy Duty Alternator Super Cooling Package AM/FM Stereo Radio Stereo 8-Track Player Honeycomb Wheels Hood Decal Custom Trim Group For more information or to schedule time to see this gorgeous example of the last of the 455-powered Trans Ams, just give us a call at 603-627-5595.
