Killer looks backed by a 455 CID V8 and four-speed manual.
Second-generation Pontiac Trans Ams continue to rise in popularity, but just in case you thought all of them are black-and-gold Bandit tributes, this '76 T/A is clean and mostly original example. If you like what you see, Awesome Joe Auctions has this 1976 Pontiac Trans Am up for grabs in a weeklong, online-only auction.
While most of the car is original, the listing says it has been repainted once, and it looks great with its silver paint job, black-and-red hood decal and the five-spoke wheels. Even better, all of the original fender extensions are still 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 original to the car, but the VIN shows that this is in fact a true 455 CI 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.
