 You are looking at a 1972 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.  This vehicle went through a complete frame off rotisserie restoration that took 4 years to complete by the famous Georgia builder, Ken Smith.  The car received some interesting modifications that might put it into the resto-mod category. The restoration included taking the body completely apart, frame off, making sure all sheet metal was perfect along with all gaps being outstanding and fit and finish better than when the car came out of the factory.  The paint is done in Audi Salsa Red with a contrasting hood scoop done in silver.  All chrome is original and has been re-chromed to look new. The interior has also been completely re-done with all factory components where needed and keeping as many original parts as possible.  A few subtle but nice modification on the interior include a set of ProCar leather bucket seats, a KC Harrison radio with MP3 output that give it a factory look with modern convenience.  All gauges work and the AC, which is factory, blows ice cold with all new components in place. The engine is a pro-built 1970 455 HO unit that's been bored .030 oversize, fitted with a set of Edelbrock D-port aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake manifold, and a Holley Trick Flow carburetor. Sitting under that air scoop it looks very correct, especially with Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block.  A gorgeous set of beautiful cast valve covers shine, theres an updated A/C and alternator, the rest of the engine bay looks fairly stock. It's putting out big power, but the built Stage 3 200-4R 4-speed automatic transmission makes the beast run smooth.  In addition, this one goes around corners like its on rails, complements of a full Hotchkiss suspension, subframe connectors, QA1 coil-over shocks, and an ultra-rare Herb Adams rear sway bar.  It's also fitted with Baer 4-wheel disc brakes that give it the stopping power it demands. The 10-bolt rear end is fitted with 3.73 gears on a limited slip and Moser axles, so it has no trouble hooking up, but with that overdrive transmission, it cruises at 80 MPH spinning only 2750 RPM. The suspension (adjustable to suit your taste) looks fantastic, especially framing those gorgeous 17-inch "honeycomb" reproductions from Year One, which are wrapped in 255/40/17 front and 275/40/17 rear Continental performance radials. Since the extensive restoration, the car has just over 1,000 miles on it.  It has gone through a vigorous appraisal done by Bob Hunt of International Vehicle Appraisers Network which we would be happy to share with a potential buyer.  They ranked this car on a scale of 1-6 a 1- ranking.  If you are a fan of these cars and are looking for the perfect car to take to shows and win or just to take on long weekend drives, this is definitely the one.  It has the beauty of the original car with all the modern conveniences that make it outstanding to drive
