1979 Pontiac Firebird Special Edition

Sorry about the picture quality. I will Provide Better photos when I can get to the car. Its in the Catskills.
I am the original owner of the 79 car. Its a special edition Trans Am with WS6 suspension and 4 speed. I also owned the 1974 SD Trans Am but its long gone now. It was blue with a white interior. If you can find it you'll have a real collector car. As a kid I had the awesome idea of swiping the motors and selling the 74 car with the 79 400 motor in it. So now I have a mutant. To add insult to injury, the roof collapsed on the warehouse that stored the car. The photos show most of the damage. I would say the hood needs to be replaced but the shaker is fine.
The body has about 20k miles on it. The motor has a total of about 60k on it, and about 5k after the rebuild. Unfortunately it was bored out, I believe I have the original pistons. In case you might recognize the names, The motor was balanced and blueprinted by Pierre Mansure (Not sure of the spelling) of Mansure Machine in Brooklyn NY (around 1983). It has a Nunzi cam. Nunzi also set up the carb. I have the original carb, intake and exhaust manifolds. The A/C was removed but I have it all. The car did not come with a radio, it has a period correct Jensen R430.
The car has sat since 1988 so everything needs to be gone through.
The car is in a 2008 ATC trailer which was also in the roof collapse and has some damage on the roof. I have patched it up so its water tight. It has about 200 miles on it. It cost about $15k new. It is also for sale. Not sure what to ask for it just yet.
I'm sure I haven't provided all the information please contact me with any questions. I will adding photos and VINs when I get them.
