That sunroof is a very cool option.

Yep sure is. It was a super (duty) nice car when it was in my hands but the buyer took it to a higher level of excellence.
Ironically "the purists" just couldn't come to terms on the "authenticity" of the sunroof. "One of one" just didn't resonate very well those critics and the car was never given it's rightful acclaim. Anyway, the guys at Wing did it up right.

What is its rightful acclaim?

He's also got a white 73 SD for sale on eBay. Looks like the premium for a sunroof is $20K.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/jmnsd/m.htm...p2047675.l2562

The red car is beautiful. Saw it at MCACN and it was stunning. The color seemed a little wonky though. Seemed closer to a cardinal red than buc red. Maybe it was just the lights...

Ironically, I had the chance to buy the white car before I bought the sunroof car. The white one was in Houston and at the time was priced a little higher than I could pay at the time so I bought the red one instead. This was back in '98. Both me and Mike Pergande knew the owner.

The White "magazine-car" was always displayed in the past with Black Carpet.
Maybe it was changed early on.
Can understand why it was changed to Black - if same car.


20k gets RED instead (for the Red fans)
plus AC , Hcombs and Black Carpet
with Electric Sliding Sunroof

I think the sunroof is a break even deal
Wouldn't have stopped me from buying it back at yesteryears price.
At 279k - i don't think it really matters either.
Car has found a home with current owner at his price-point.

Nope the white car had red carpet as factory. The car had been around the Houston area for years before John bought it and had the restoration done.

Then there must be two of them.
The black carpet picture is the mag car from around twenty plus years ago.
Red carpet picture is from current eBay listing.

Almost exact same angle [interior] by coincidence.

Also have this vintage one from the same day.

One of them posed nude for Playboy back in the 70's
is the rumor

And supposed to be a swanky home video of a rusty Green car doing it with a restored Red car
I don't wanna see it though.

Supposedly the VIN's are blurred out so you can't tell for sure whose cars they were.
thank goodness

Anyone remeber this or owned it previously in the 70's. Hood emblem must have a story. Has been in Australia since early 80's also. Was last seen 2015.

got to ask you guys from down under. just how cool was this guy driving a car like that over there? I mean he was cool as all get out over here. I would think it would be like driving a ford gt40 or something.

1974 Trans Am Super Duty White with Red interior 590 on trim tag need help on the Carpet interior color

the car come from factory with 2 different Reds the Dash, Console, and package Tray comes in Dark Red flat finish
and the plastic panels and seats in Medium Red Semi gloss

but the carpet in this combination is Dark or Medium Red?

my research show in the trim tag TR 590 is the TR= Trim 59= Medium Red 0= All Plastic Interior, also show RED= Secondary Interior Color (Dark red)
and in the Build Sheet Box 73 CARPET= RED= Secondary Interior Color (Dark red)

Also parts book show 9679747 AT With 200 208 590 - RED

If some body still have 1974 Trans am with original Red interior the carpet its Bright Red or Dark Red like the Dash
Thanks in Advance

OK, I'm gonna show my ignorance here. A few days ago I was buying a few parts from a guy and he claimed he had an NOS SD oil pan. Is there a difference in standard 455 and SD 455? The GM sticker has seen better days with no numbers remaining.
