about the dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 


Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this extremely rare 1977 Pontiac Can-Am that is in excellent driver condition and priced to sell. Be assured this is a true and original Can Am. It has been verified by Pontiac Historical Services (PHS) and a copy of the window sticker is included with the car.  This Can Am looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive; you will get a lot of looks in the car everywhere you go. This is an excellent and rare opportunity to own a classic Can-Am that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value, these cars do not come up for sale often. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. This Can-Am is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Cameo White over Firethorn Red deluxe interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how nice and rare this Can Am really is.

As a side note, this Can 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 Can Am package was specific to Le Mans cars painted Cameo White which were then accessorized in striking orange, red and yellow graphics as well as blacked-out lower panels and window trim. The standard road wheel was a color-matched Rally II with chrome trim rings, as shown at right. Many options were available, including the same aluminum "snowflake" wheels offered on the Trans Am, and a steel or glass sunroof. Interior trim color options were the same as the base Le Mans, and included red, black, white and tan.

The number of Can Ams produced has never been accurately determined, but the number most commonly used is 1,377. Complete Le Mans coupes were shipped by Pontiac to Jim Wangers' Motortown business which carried out the various Can Am appearance modifications, including those relating to the hood, rear deck spoiler and body decals. According to the Can Am Registry in late 2007, 42 cars feature the Oldsmobile 403 engine, outwardly identified by "6.6 LITRE" decals on the hood shaker. The rest of the cars on the Registry have the Pontiac 400 engine, designated "T/A 6.6" on the hood shaker decals. The Pontiac Historical Service (PHS) can determine whether a car is a genuine Can Am, and list the options as it was delivered from the factory.

When the Can Am was first introduced to the dealers, Pontiac envisioned producing 2,500 units; the response from the buying public was much more than expected and over 5,000 orders were submitted. Unfortunately, the mold used to produce the fiberglass rear spoiler broke, and production at Motortown, Inc. (where the Le Mans Sport Coupes destined to become Can Ams were sent) ceased. Pontiac upper management, already worried about losing sales of their Grand Prix models (the Can Am and the Grand Prix used the same dashboard and console, so a sale of a Can Am was seen as a loss of a sale of a Grand Prix by some senior Pontiac executives), decided to scrap the project after approximately one half year of production.

Built with the Pontiac 400 engine, the Can Am came with the three speed automatic TH400 and 3.08 rear gears. When built with the Olds 403 engine, the Can Am came with the three speed automatic TH350 and 2.41 rear gears. There were no four speed manual transmission Can Ams produced. However, one Can Am has been restored and modified with a conversion to a Super T10 manual transmission using all-GM factory parts, from various years of the 73-77 GM A-body0 Z28 came with the extremely popular Z28 hood which included a rear-pointing raised scoop (air induction) with a solenoid operated flap which opened at full throttle, allowing the engine to breathe cooler air.. The 1980 Z28 also offers unique style upper and lower front grill and smaller revised graphics on its lower-door decals. The side scoops were also changed from a louvered design to a flatter one with a single opening.

Exterior

The Cameo White exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a nice gloss, good shine, and smooth finish and was recently painted with new Can Am decals applied. The chrome trim and decals show well on the car. The snowflake wheels are in great condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. Both bumpers are in nice shape with the exception of some dents on the left rear corner, there is a specific photo of the area below. There are no major scratches, scrapes, or other imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some very small blemishes that were too faint up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from just five feet away. Tires are sized 225/70/15 with about 80% tread left. The Can Am decal package is a nice compliment to the White paintwork, and really make the car pop.  Louvered quarter windows, special Can Am only Trunk spoiler, and Shaker scoop are all in excellent shape.  All weather stripping is in great usable condition. Trunk is complete and nicely detailed with spare tire,  jack and accessories.

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

 

Interior

The Firethorn Red deluxe interior of the Can Am looks splendid. The seats are in very good condition overall with no holes.  They are not worn through in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out, however, there is one small split seam on the right rear seat. It is not very noticeable and there is a specific photo of the spot below. The carpet looks like new with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash is in good condition with no major cracks, fading, or sun damage. There is one small blemish with a close up photo below.  All of the gauges work as they should outside of the clock and oil pressure gauge. The door panels look great with no cracks or splits, which is a notorious problem on the arm pads of these cars, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in nice shape, in tact, not sagging or falling down.  The package tray is original and not wasted, but does show its age, there are specific photos of it below. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever. Old GM interiors are not known to wear well and the great condition of this interior is a testament to the care this car has received throughout its life.

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


Mechanical

This Can Am seems to be in very nice mechanical condition and all of the accessories work. Many resources and much time have gone into making this Can Am an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band. The brakes are responsive and do not pull what so ever as new calipers, brake pads, rear brake shoes, brake drums, and master cylinder were all recently installed. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The horn works as do the wipers, and blower on all setting except high. The only item that I am aware of that does not work on the car is the a/c.  The catylitic converter has been removed and the car now has true dual exhaust.  This Can Am has plenty of power and drives nicely. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.

Below you will see a picture of a folder of receipts totaling well over $3000 in recent engine and mechanical work.  Also, the car is freshly painted in factory colors with new Can Am decal kit(which cost $450 by it self).   For example: $1400 for engine maintenance work, heater core replacement, new power steering pump, new fuel pump, etc., $240 for new intake, $300 for new carb. $83 for new PS pump,  $23 for new water pump, plus new spark plugs, dist. cap and wires, etc. etc. etc. It is easy to see the undeniable value this car presents.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1977 Can Am in excellent driver condition. There are hardly any Can Am's on the market right now and ours is definitely priced lower than any other in similar 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 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.

PHS documents are also included with the sale verifying the authenticity of this Can Am and showing that it was originally shipped to Dave White Pontiac in Indianapolis, IN on May 14, 1977.  Also, several original documents and booklets are included with the sale, such as:  owners manual, maintenance schedule, warranty booklets, consumer information, etc.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate with any questions
