Modified 1975 Pontiac Trans Am PrivateCars - Englewood - 6 views
This 1975 Pontiac Trans Am was first sold by Mikan Motor Company, Inc. of Butler, Pennsylvania and remained with its original owners until it was acquired by the current owner in August 2005. The car was subsequently refurbished and modified by RK Motors of Charlotte, North Carolina between 2015 and 2017. The exterior was refinished in dark blue with light blue graphics, the interior was reupholstered with blue vinyl, a 461ci V8 and Tremec five-speed manual transmission were fitted, and the brakes, suspension, wheels, and sound system were upgraded. Highlights include Baer front calipers, 18″ Rally II-style wheels, ceramic-coated headers with a full dual exhaust, air conditioning, an aluminum radiator, and Detroit Speed, Inc. DSE suspension components. Service performed within the past 100 miles reportedly included replacement of the battery, headliner, interior trim, and differential gasket, flushes of the brakes, clutch, and transmission, a paint correction, and an inspection. This Trans Am is now offered on behalf of its owner with a window sticker, build records, an insurance valuation, and a New York title in the seller’s name.
Delivered from the factory in Stellar Blue, the car was refinished in dark blue with factory-style light blue graphics on the hood and decklid. Features include a custom shaker hood, dual sport mirrors, rear fender flares, and a rear spoiler. A three-stage paint correction was reportedly performed within the past 100 miles.
Rally II-style 18″ wheels feature PMD center caps and are mounted with 275/40 Nitto NT555 G2 tires. The suspension features Detroit Speed, Inc. DSE components, including a front subframe, tubular A-arms, a front sway bar, custom frame connectors, rear trailing arms, a Panhard bar, a rear-end center cover, and coilovers at all four corners. Braking is handled by four-wheel slotted and cross-drilled discs with Baer calipers up front, and a custom rack-and-pinion steering system is installed. A brake fluid flush was performed within the past 100 miles according to the seller.
The cockpit features seats trimmed in blue vinyl with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Features include power windows, a center console, a heated rear window, a Vintage Air air-conditioning system, a vintage-look AM/FM stereo and aftermarket speakers. The headliner and trim pieces were replaced within the past 100 miles according to the seller.
The three-spoke Formula steering wheel mounted on a tilt steering column frames an engine-turned instrument panel containing a tachometer with a 5k-rpm redline and an inset clock, a 100-mph speedometer, and readouts for oil pressure and coolant temperature. Just under 39k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer. Total mileage is unknown.
The 461ci V8 with a light metallic blue block is fitted, and the engine bay features the following modifications: Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and cylinder heads MSD fuel injection system w/Atomic EFI box MSD electronic distributor Custom-fabricated Pontiac billet valve covers Aluminum radiator with dual electric fans Polished stainless steel overflow tube Polished A/C compressor, alternator, bracket system, steering box, and power steering reservoir Billet thermostat cover Fuel pressure gauge Smoothed firewall
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Ceramic-coated headers feed into a twin-pipe stainless steel exhaust system, and a powder-coated gas tank is mounted along with an electric fuel pump.
