Description for Pontiac Trans Am 1972

This 1972 Pontiac Trans Am survivor is very rare due to the factory shut-down in April of 1972. Manufacture date is January of 1972 out of the Norwood, Ohio, plant and my uncle purchased the vehicle in February off the showroom floor at Quality Pontiac in Albuquerque, NM. He is unable to drive it anymore and it needs to be with someone who appreciates this classic muscle car (which has lived its whole life in New Mexico). We have the original title issued April 3, 1972. Pontiac produced 1286 Trans Ams in 1972 and only 458 with the Muncie 4 speed manual transmission. See the photo of factory specs. for more information.

Condition:

Original parts and matching numbers are here. Starts easily, runs strong and solid. This car has never been restored so has not been taken apart. The unrestored condition will be a big plus to the right buyer. Choose only the best technicians for any restoration. I drove it down the road last week and am still amazed at everything about this car. I can't find another 1972 TA in this close to original condition for comparison.

Uncle changed the carburetor within the first few years but saved the originalRochesterin a box so it will be included in the sale (Holley also included in box but Edelbrock quadrajet is installed). Some suspension parts were changed out in the 90’s but all original parts were kept. Front grill surround was repainted in the 70’s due to paint chips from road debris (Eagle decal still in box supplied). Stored in a climate controlled shop since 1976. Driver’s seat has sun damage where it is near the window (adhesive residue from old duck tape repair makes it worse). Some cracks in the dash are also from sun. There has been touch up work done around the back window where a metal sun shade was once attached. Some paint repair also around the license plate where gas nozzles chipped. We also have the original window cranks but one is damaged. There is a dimple on the passenger side rear fender and a small paint chip on the driver's side rear fender. I have pictures to show these imperfections. Also exhaust manifolds were replaced recently. Found part of original distributor and looking for the rest. Original glass except for front windshield
