Here's a great project for you Pontiac guys. One owner car that has some neat factory parts on it.
It has the Long Branch Hi-Po exhaust manifolds, Posi rear end, and the Ram Air heads as I am told per the original owner that I acquired the car from.
When I installed the fuel pump and looked in the motor as well as inside the valve covers it was obvious that this is a clean, low mile motor and it runs really well. The car had a locked up front drum brake and was parked years ago.
The non power manual drum brakes have been remedied front, rear and gone through with new (drums) master cylinder, hardware parts and needed adjustments etc. Stops like new now.
Next was the fuel system, also new from front to rear. New tank and sending unit, new fuel pump, and a complete rebuild on the carb.
The original color was yellow on black and was painted Pontiac green at some point.
Still has it's original jack assembly, brand new tires and 5 rally wheels.
Very nice dry solid body but it will need some attention on the pin holes in the trunk and abit of work on the roof skin.Push the pedal to the floor once, turn the key and she fires right up!!
The car does not have current registration so I have only driven it up and down the street and although it does not slip at all it does seem to hang up in first gear. I will include a extra correct transmission for the new buyer to install if needed.
When I start it up and let it idle for several minutes to fully warm up it is nice and even and does not run hot or overheat.
Has some pin holes in the exhaust and sounds okay but should be replaced at some point.
All the dash gauges work, interior lights, this is a solid project car and does need a full resto.
Just depends on what you are looking for. Clear title with no DMV fees due for you California buyers.
Please ask all questions, being sold as is.
Bid to win and good luck.On Nov-12-17 at 16:26:53 PST, seller added the following information:
