This one is really a good deal when it boils down. 81 Trans/AM in Georgia at $54K BIN OBO with an LS3. Man, this has to be a blast to drive. Looks stock, and most don't realize the effort it takes to put a 400HP FI engine onto one of these. The turbo hood helps make it fit. I would love to drive this car. May not be worth the asking, but worth consideration IMO as it would cost more than that to build. The LS3 is a monster. I get 19 MPG in my 2010 Camaro. FWIW, the 79 T/A WS6 was voted as Motor Trend's best handling car, and there Trans AM's rock when it comes to roadworthy.

For such a nice looking car it sure did not generate any interest, being bid to only $2500.

That car does look nice and if it had AC I would probably bid.
Im guessing the feedback score of seller is the stumbling point

A little strange about that Brewster 73 TA 4spd , they paid top dollar plus fees and transport from Nebraska to Florida .
Might take a while longer to see a profit .

Its already made a run on eBay last month.

Here's a decent looking 69 Grand Prix with 400 and a 4speed. A little detailing and take off the stupid air cleaner decal and she's very presentable

For $33K it's on the low side for a 4-speed.

71 Lucy blue T/A $32.5K BIN in Massachusetts. Seller has over 500reviews, so prolly not a scam. Seems too good to be true?

What's left of a 69 GTO at $100 NR in Indiana. Has a VIN and cowl tag, so there's that.

Yes
VIN shows it to be born as a Firebird 22487 , not TA 22887

The rotted 69 GTO decodes out to a pretty cool car, unless I screwed up the decode. Black interior, burgundy paint and a black vinyl top. Up to $200 now, so someone wants it.

The fact that it is a clone is attractive to me. You can drive this can and do whatever mods you want on it. Still a looker X 10 and should be great fun to drive. A lot of work was done, and if you consider what it would cost you to get a 71 Lucy Blue T/A clone to this result, I can't see doing it for less than $33K? This is a beautiful car regardless of how it was born vs. now.

Standard base speedo cluster with aftermarket add-ons.
Can see the brush strokes in the under hood black out treatment.
No PHS or trim tag shown .
Low effort fake , borderline scam attempt. imo
