1973 Pontiac Trans Am 455 – SOLD!

Dec 2020 | Classifind Cut, Classifinds, Malaise Monday

January 17th Update – we just confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” We’re sorry that this one got away, so feel free to reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

If you ever wondered why the Colonnade-Hardtop 1973 Pontiac GTO wasn’t a big seller, all you need to do is look at one of the other performance cars offered in its showrooms that year: the 455-powered Firebird Trans Am. This Buccaneer Red over Black vinyl example originally listed in December 2020 on Craigslist in North Ridgefield, Ohio (Cleveland) is highly detailed with only 37K original miles and an asking price of $44,500.  The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the ask currently falls between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $39,000 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $60,700. Similarly, using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a second data point confirms the private seller has their Trans Am priced between this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $39,800, and its #1 “Concours” appraisal of $55,100.  We like the fact the seller has their Trans Am priced towards the lower end of those ranges as a nod to the fact the engine is extensively modified while the automatic transmission features a console-mounted B&M shifter.

We love how the Firestone Wide Oval shod Honeycomb wheels give a stock vibe hiding all of the highly detailed upgrades underneath.  If you are serious about buying this potent Trans Am, you can start the conversation by calling the private seller at (216) 990-4482  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Trans Am featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!
