Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this nicely restored numbers matching 1975 Trans Am in great condition and priced to sell. The car is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Buccaneer Red (75) over Black deluxe vinyl (19W) interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below. This Trans Am is numbers matching with a "YS" engine code stamping, which is correct for an L78 400ci and pictured below, and the last six digits of the VIN "560175" stamped on the block, also pictured below, indicting this is the original engine. The beautifully restored exterior and interior, and the numbers matching driveline of this TA makes for a very attractive package. It looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Trans Am that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. Please peruse all of the photos and video below to get a true sense of how clean and correct this Trans Am really is.

We actually purchased two cars for the previous owner of this Trans Am. He was a true enthusiast with a small collection and we we able to obtain this 1975 Trans am and a fully restored El Camino. Both cars a very nice, but this Trans Am seemed so well done and reliable that we decided to just drive it back from Sidney, OH all the way back to Cincinnati instead of trailering it since it was a nice day. The car preformed flawlessly on the nearly 100 mile trip and was an absolute pleasure to drive.

As a side note, this Trans Am is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Pontiac, just give us a call.

 

model description

 

 

The third front end design in three years appeared for 1975. Not as drastic as the change between '73 and '74, there were changes none the less. The parking lamps were moved from below the front bumper for their first (and only) time. Filling the outboard edges of the grilles, the chrome bezeled (yes they're back!) park/turn signal lamps rested.

Colors availability exploded on the Trans Am, now totaling four. The feature color became Sterling silver, complementing standbys Cameo white and Buccaneer red. Admiralty blue was replaced by Stellar blue. The standout on the traditionally quick fading Sterling silver T/A's was a dynamic red/black/charcoal bird and accompanying labels and engine callouts.

Inside the Trans Am lost the cloth/vinyl seat combination, so all interiors were finished with vinyl seat coverings. Green disappeared all together and the red trim was replaced by a rich burgundy. As in 1974, multicolored interiors could be ordered, increasing the number of potential build combinations. What the T/A lacked in go choices was made up for in the show department. The 8-track tape player was still a must have option, continuing to reside in the center console, in its own stand alone module.

Exterior

The Buccaneer Red exterior is in excellent restored condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a beautiful gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. This Trans Am was treated to a professional paint job with all new correct decals applied within the last few years. The body was solid and strait prior to the repaint, it just had a few door dings to repair before new base coat/clear coat was applied. The finished product looks excellent in the photos and video but even better in person especially in the sunshine. Often many Trans Am's will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not, both bumpers are in nice shape with no spider webbing or flaking paint. We have included may photos of the underside of the car as well as specific photos of the areas most prone to rust. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There is one small spot on lower passenger rear quarter that shows a few very shallow bubbles, there is a specific photos below of the are to show how minor it is. The tires are like new sized 225/70/15 and the rally II wheels are beautifully refinished originals with no curb rash. This TA has a newer shaker seal, trunk seal, window sweeps, and door seals. The trunk is freshly painted with a new correct trunk mat with built in jute padding and is nicely detailed with full size rally II spare tire.

The Trans Am looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The black deluxe interior of the Trans Am looks truly splendid. The seats have been recently recovered and are in like new condition with no tears, split seams, or signs of wear in any way. The carpet is also "like new" with no stains, rips, or holes. The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, warping or sun damage. The door panels are in excellent condition with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in great condition and not sagging at all and the package tray is also in great condition. The aftermarket Craig analog cassette stereo sounds good and is period correct for the car. Most importantly, the original dash was not cut or modified for the installation. There are also new Pioneer 6x9 speakers are mounted in the rear deck. All of the interior plastics are in very nice shape, are not chalky, and have a nice factory texture and grain pattern. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever. Older Firebird interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the excellent care this car has received.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Trans Am is in great mechanical condition and all of the accessories work; even the a/c blows cold. As stated above this car just completed a long road trip with no issues at all. This car is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The car shifts well. The steering feels tight for a 1970's F-Body and the car rides solid without a lot of rattles. The brakes are okay and do not pull to one side or the other. This TA has true dual exhaust and has a nice healthy exhaust tone. There is a small sound of an exhaust leak on the passenger side, which is very common on cars with headers. Also, the engine is clean, factory complete, and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. It appears that the engine has been gone through and refreshed to stock specs. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, gauges, wipers, and blower for the heater and a/c. The speedometer, odometer tachometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. The AC system is fully intact and blows cold air. This Trans Am has good power and handles well. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1975 Trans Am is in terrific restored condition. It is a great value and we have it priced to sell. The original owners manual, Pontiac maintenance booklet, and consumer information booklet are all still with the car and pictured below. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these 1970's trans Am's has gone up exponentially in recent years and they continue to climb. They are all solid investments for a collector. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and Mecum stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
