Killer looks backed by a 455 CID V8 and four-speed manual.


If you love the second-generation Pontiac Trans Am, but you're tired of seeing black-and-gold "Bandit" cars at every show, then this immaculate 1976 Pontiac Trans Am is an amazing find. As this body style continues to rise in popularity, this should be a hot-ticket item at the upcoming Carlisle Auctions Fall Carlisle event.

From the silver paint to the factory red interior, this 1976 Pontiac Trans Am shows incredibly well, but that black and red Screaming Chicken decal on the hood is what really draws eyes to this car. This car is surprisingly original with no obvious modifications, and even the front chin spoiler and fender extension pieces are all in place giving the Trans Am a factory fresh look.  

The interior looks just as good, too, with an all-original factory interior colored in bright red and showing no signs of wear. The Trans Am's distinctive gauge cluster bezel is a perfect complement to this interior color, while the tall shifter shows that this car means business.

Backing up its looks, this 1976 Pontiac Trans Am is powered by a 455 cubic-inch V8, which was the last year the Trans Am used this engine. The listing isn't able to verify if the engine is numbers-matching to the car, but the VIN shows that this is in fact a true 455 car. Showing that this Pontiac is a true driver's car, this big V8 is paired to a four-speed manual gearbox, and the Trans Am even has factory air conditioning that is said to blow cold.
