Description for Pontiac Trans Am 1978

Original Gold on Gold car. Bought it on Ebay in 2010. Restored it over 3 years. When I bought it it came with a 350 Pontiac engine. The block was cracked. but the 1971 heads were good. I bought a slightly used rebuilt 400. . 60 over and checked it out and installed it with 350 heads and all new components. Has a posi-trac with at least a 308 gear ratio. It left two long tread marks when I floored it from dead stop. Definitely not the 273 gears. Launched way to fast with just above stock cam. Car ran for about 4 months. 000 approximate miles. then engine blew. Car was rolled into garage. Block on 400 was cracked. Planned on rebuilding 455 and keeping it. I have decided to sell it. Got a valve job done on the 1971 350 heads. They have higher compression ratio and rate at 250 HP. # 94 on center of heads. The 455 block looks to be in good shape. Needs to be vatted and checked out. 455 crank and caps. I stripped entire car and refinished. Sprayed Eastwood rust converter inside rockers. heelwells. rame interior. tc. Stripped all panels and epoxy primed. Then followed with a 6 step blocking process. From 80 to 600 grit. Car is super straight. (Minus one ding on passenger door and minor paint crack on front bumper). Also Comes with:Summit Racing Headers. cross pipe exhaust connected to summit racing mufflers. Has a good 80's tic. Rebuilt 350 transmission. New front springs. 4 new shocks. Brand new summit racing factory leaf springs. All new rubber on rear and front suspension and body mts. New steering linkage. idler arm. tie rod ends. tc. New rear drums and rear brakes. Emergency brake cables all new and work smooth. needs a front end alignment.
