Default 1976 50TH 455 Trans Am PROJECT!

Big project here but worth it, I just won't get to it. NON-T top. Numbers match block, 3.23 posi rear is original. T-10 tranny is from another TA. PHS documented. Rust but not a rust bucket by any means. Car is at FormulaBruce's in New Hampshire.

Had the instrument bezel done by Randy Combs ,that's the only thing I got to. Needs a black dash and fenders. $7500

I really like the rollers you put on the front subframe. Great idea. Good luck with the sale. If it was a non ac car Iíd be all over it. I keep telling myself no more ac cars

All the 1976 SE 50TH Anniversary Trans Am 455 cars had AC unfortunately.

Cool, I've never seen an L75 SE car without it. I assumed they all got it as a mandatory option. The non-AC versions must be super rare

It's in storage for the winter, Next time I visit it I will snap a few shots. There is a picture of it on my facebook cover ( John Stites ) , and Gardner Exhaust used my car as an example.
