CAR NOW SOLD :smoke:

THIS CAR HAS HAD MAJOR WORK DONE BY BOTH MYSELF AND THE PREVIOUS OWNER

THIS INCLUDED
NEW REAR QUARTERS
NEW INNER AND OUTER WINGS
BODY TAKEN BACK TO BARE METAL
SHAKER AND WHEEL SPATS "FRENCHED" INTO THE BODY WORK
FULL RESPRAY
ENGINE REMOVED, TAKEN APART, CLEANED. NEW GASKETS FITTED, HI LIFT CAM FITTED, REASSEMBLED, PAINTED, CHROME DRESS UP KIT, HOLLEY CARB, HEADERS

INTERIOR IS IN FANTASTIC SHAPE, NEW HEADLINING, PERFECT SEATS, NEW CARPET, TRANS AM DASH AND STEERING WHEEL, BLACK SAIL PANELS ETC, BLACK CENTER CONSOLE
NEW AFTERMARKET DOOR CARDS

DOORS HAVE ALL NEW RUBBER SEALS
WINDOWS HAVE ALL NEW RUBBER SEALS
NEW WINDOW FELTS AND SWEEPS

FITTED WITH A B&M QUICKSILVER RATCHET SHIFTER

ENGINE IS A 400CI PONTIAC V8

GEARBOX IS A TH400

HAS A SET OF BIG CHROME WHEELS WITH NEW TIRES

CAR HAS AN MOT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2012

TAXED UNTIL MARCH 2012

THE CAR READS 62K, WHICH I HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE IS NOT GENUINE

UNDERNEATH IS SOLID AS A ROCK, NO RUST IN FLOOR PAN OR CHASSIS RAILS

BOOT FLOOR IS PERFECT, AGAIN NO RUST.

STARTS ON THE BUTTON.

PLANT YOUR FOOT AND YOU LEAVE A NICE NUMBER 11 ON THE ROAD BEHIND YOU.

DRIVES REALLY NICE, FEELS TIGHT AND HOLDS THE ROAD WELL.
HAVE ORIGINAL BUILD SHEET (ORIGINALLY A BASE MODEL FIREBIRD WITH A 301Ci V8)

THERE ARE SOME MINOR DEFECTS WITH THE CAR.
THE FRONT WINDOWS NEED CLEANING, THEY HAVE SOME OVER-SPRAY ON THEM FROM BEING STORED IN THE WORKSHOP.
THE GEAR LINKAGE FOR THE SHIFTER NEEDS ADJUSTING, SEEMS TO BE 1 NOTCH OUT, READS NEUTRAL WHEN IN REVERSE ETC.
CARB COULD DO WITH FINE TUNING BUT THATS ME BEING PICKY

THE BIGGEST DOWNFALL WITH THE CAR IS THE PAINT JOB.
THE PREVIOUS GUY DID ALL THE HARD WORK BUT THEN SKIMPED ON THE FINAL COAT OF PAINT, IT IS TOO THICK AND SHE HAS LOTS OF IMPERFECTIONS. I WAS GOING TO HAVE HER FLATTED OFF, MOPPED AND POLISHED BUT TIME AND TOO MANY OTHER TRANS AM'S MEANS THIS AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.
ONLY ONE FENDER AIR VENT HAS BEEN FITTED, THE OTHER ONE COMES WITH THE CAR.
FRONT DRIVERS WING NEEDS TOP COATING AS VENT FITTED AFTER ORIGINAL SPRAY JOB.
BOOT LID AND HOOD NEED FINAL FIT ADJUSTMENTS
DASH HAS "TURNED METAL" LOOK VINYL THAT IS COMING UP IN A COUPLE OF PLACES
CENTRAL LOCKING NOT WORKING
NEVER TRIED THE STEREO AS THE ENGINE SOUNDS TOO GOOD

THERE ARE PROBABLY A COUPLE OF OTHER MINOR THINGS I HAVE FORGOTTEN BUT IF I THINK OF THEM I WILL ADD THE INFO LATER.

LOOKING FOR £5250 OR AS NEAR AS DAMN IT OFFER........
