Have you ever heard of this Mecham build?

In 1977, brothers Dennis and Kyle Mecham began giving the “Yenko” treatment to Trans Ams under the name DKM. The offspring of a Phoenix-area Pontiac dealer, they had access to brand new Trans Ams without issue. Boasting enough performance knowledge to reinstate the power lost due to growing emissions equipment on the factory cars, they began adding turbochargers and, by the next year, had evolved to completely rebuilding the powertrain.

In 1978 an official DKM brochure read, “If you insist on viewing the rear of a Macho T/A we welcome you to buy your Corvette, Camaro, or Porsche” That year only 204 of these rare Trans Ams were available. Production number 90 of the 204 made is now available in fully restored form through Streetside Classics.

The Macho T/As 400 cubic inch engine has been freshened up with new components and long tube headers. However, what’s believed to be the original Hooker headers installed by DKM are included with the car. This car features a four-speed manual transmission and WS6 suspension, with power steering and front disc brakes. The black and gold themed exterior is in excellent condition and all of the original DKM Macho T/A badging is complete.

The interior has been kept fresh by the addition of new carpeting and correct color seat covers. It features a retro style stereo with AM/FM/cassette with a digital tuner, A/C, DKM roll bar, and Pontiacs three spoke sport steering wheel with a DKM center cap. This is an incredibly rare car in very good condition with only 21,953 miles on the clock. At the listed sale price of $36,995 it is sure to be the centrepiece of a Pontiac enthusiasts dream collection.
