Seven Hills Motorcars is extremely proud to offer this amazingly low
original mile 1976 Trans Am survivor which is in excellent condition
inside and out and priced to sell. This Trans Am is in virtually
like new condition in every way and has only 17,118 original miles.
This Trans Am was well preserved throughput its 39 years of
ownership by Firebird enthusiasts to maintain a factory fresh and
correct appearance in every way and detail and comes with a folder
of extensive original documentation such as build sheet, buyers
order, odometer certification, copies of past ownership titles etc.
This low mile survivor Trans Am is a time capsule and an investment
grade vehicle that is in nearly showroom condition. One can even see
how clean the car is underneath in the many photos below of the car
on a lift.
Throughout the entire F-Body market right now,
this is one of the nicest and most desirable Trans Am's available.
There is no way this car could be duplicated with this level of
originality or quality for anything near our asking price, cars like
this are only original once. This Trans Am looks great, runs
awesome, and is fun to drive. This is an excellent opportunity to
own a classic Firebird 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 as these F-Body's are
appreciating fast. This Trans Am is finished in the beautiful and
desirable one year only color combinations of Firethorn Red Paint
over Firethorn/White interior. This is the factory color scheme as
verified on the trim tag pictured below as well as the original
build sheet, which is also still with the car and pictured below.
The car absolutely stunning in photos and even more so in person.
The very low original mileage is verified not only by the condition
of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, that
states the mileage as "Actual," plus several dated documents proving
the mileage is correct. Please peruse all of the photos, numbers,
video, and information below to get a true sense of clean and nice
this Trans Am really is.
Please note that this Trans Am is completely numbers
matching. That means that all of codes, dates, and stamping
are original or correct for the car and in correct
chronological order. Most importantly the
engine is original to the car. The last six digits of the
VIN, 587613, are stamped on the engine block and pictured
below indicating that this is the original engine that was
installed in the car brand new at the factory. Also stamped
on the engine block is the code "XZ." This is the correct
code for a 1976 Trans Am with a 400ci engine and later
build date, which is all correct for this car. The transmission
is also numbers matching with the last 6 digits of the VIN
stamped on the main case and pictured below. All of the
paint and interior trim codes and numbers are correct for
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.
Let Updates to the Front End Styling: For 1976 the rubber
bumper strips were replaced with a smooth urethane bumper front and
rear giving a cleaner, more modern look. The turn signals were moved
again, this time from the front grilles to the lower bumper. The
grilles themselves were revised with a honeycomb design replacing
the horizontal slats.
New Interiors: Both the standard
and custom interiors were redesigned for 1976. The standard interior
seats would remain virtually unchanged (except for minor alteration)
until 1981. The custom interior still featured horse-collar type
seats but with a new pattern. On the dash a new Rosewood appliqué
was used on the dashboard on non-Trans Am models, replacing the
African Crossfire Mahogany of 1975.
Body Color Rally II
Wheels: The Rally II Wheel could now be ordered with background
colors matching the car's exterior color. This was seemingly a
subtle change in the option list but cars so equipped were striking
Firethorn exterior is in excellent condition with
amazing paint and decals. The
way this car shows is a testament to the care this car has
received over 39 years of pampered ownership. As one can see in
the photos, the paint has an awesome gloss, dazzling shine, and
smooth finish. The trim and decals are in amazing condition with
no fading or peeling. The factory original spot welds are still
visible in the wheel wells and pictured below. Often Trans Am's
will have particularly chipped up front ends; this car does not.
The low front spoiler, which is very fragile and prone to
damage, is in excellent condition as one can see in the photos.
Both bumpers are in excellent shape with no flaking paint or
spider web cracks with the exception of one small blemish on
the left front corner. There is a specific photo of the area
below. The factory Rally wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash and a great finish. The tires are BF
Goodrich and correctly sized at 225/70/15 and have excellent
tread. All of thr weather stripping is in like new excellent well
preserved condition. The trunk is complete, looks new, and fully
detailed with spare tire, inflator canister, jack, base, and
original trunk mat. Please note that many of the lenses are
dated coded and original to the car.
Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is
pictured below. The core support shows a "4 6 76" stamp, or
April 6, 1976. This stamping would be correct and original
as it precedes the car's build date of the first week of June,
1976 (06A). As one can imagine, if this Trans Am had ever
sustained even a minor front end collision this part would have
been repaired or replaced. The original stamping is great to see
this Trans Am even both front fenders are original and
dated from 1976. There are close up photos of the
stamping from both front fenders below.
The Trans Am looks in person as it does in
The original Firethorn Red with
White interior of the Trans Am looks utterly splendid and
factory new. The original seat covers show no wear in any
way, are not faded in any area, and have no seam splits or
stress cracks. Also, the seats are not stained, which is
important with a white interior as they show dirt and can be
soiled easily. The carpet is also in "like new" condition
with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash and
components look amazing and are in showroom condition,
frankly it's the best dash, bezel, radio, glovebox, and
gauge cluster we have ever seen in person. The original AM
radio still resides in its factory position and amazingly
the dash remains unaltered. Although the radio and speakers
are original to the car, the radio works intermittingly. All
of the gauge lenses are crisp,
clear, and show no wear at all. The original door panels
look excellent with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls
are solid and in tact. The headliner is in great shape with
no holes or stains and no sagging. The original package tray
looks great with no warping, fading, or sun damage. This is
the best original interior we have ever seen in person and
is a true study of how these cars looked from the factory.
Now factor in a mostly white original interior in this
spectacular condition and you truly have something rare.
This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of
cigarettes what so ever. These Firebird interiors are not
known to wear well and the excellent condition of this
original interior is a testament to the meticulous care and
attention this car has received throughout its life by its
The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the
This Trans Am is
in excellent mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed.
Very Importantly the original numbers matching engine still
resides under the hood and is in great running condition with
only 17,118 miles on the odometer, please look at the close
up picture below of the correct VIN stamp on the engine block
and the transmission.
In the video below one can see the car accelerating on the
highway up to about 70 mph, braking to stoplight, accelerating
away, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts
properly, there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs
quite well overall. This Trans Am 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 excellent. The brakes are responsive, do not pull
to one side or the other, and
even the emergency brake works as it should. Amazingly the
exhaust system appears to be original as well with factory
catalytic converter, cross flow muffler with GM stamps, and
factory splitter tips. The engine bay looks factory fresh and
all original engine components are detailed and in place as they
came from the factory. Even all of the small vacuum lines in the
engine compartment are routed correctly and still feature the
correct and original colored striped and coding. The flexible
air induction pipe is the original and exceptionally rare factory
installed unit, not some cheap plastic
reproduction. The horn works as do all the interior and exterior
lights, all of the gauges (with the obvious exception of the
clock), wipers, and indicators. All of the factory air conditioning components are still
on the car and there is a belt on the compressor, but the a/c
and blower motor on the car do not work. The speedometer,
odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as
they should. This Trans Am has lots of power and handles
amazingly. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure
it is to drive this car.
Overall, this 1976 Trans Am
survivor is in excellent award winning condition. It is
a great value and we have it priced to sell. This car turns heads and gets tons
of attention wherever it goes. The value of these cars
has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all
solid investments for a collector or the average
enthusiast. 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.
are not taking the time to show the car is in such great
detail to give you all of the other numbers. Numbers
matching is extremely important in pricing such a scarce
and original car as this example and
will become even more important as time passes and this
car becomes older and even more rare and desirable. This
information is very valuable and important for pricing.
Thank you for looking and please do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
