Description 1980 PONTIAC TRANSAM BLACK

My much loved 1980 TransAm is now up for sale as moving house and lack of time forces a thinning out of my muscle car collection.
This was originally a Turbo car (hence the turbo hood) but I swapped out the engine for a much better 400 CI (6.6l) early 70s engine from a Firebird 400. The engine was rebuilt by Robin Gray at Autopontiac who has also renovated pretty much every aspect of the engine bay and handling over the past 5 years. The Carburetor is a Rochester Quadrajet tuned to a kind of dual character where in calm city driving the car is fairly tame and (relatively) economic, but if you put your foot down the extra barrels open up and the rears up and gets fun!
No bodywork or paintwork has been done in recent years as its all been very sound and nothing was required. Some chrome trim and door handles have been replaced recently for new shiny bits. Bodywork solid.
The interior has been mostly restored recently with new interior paint, door cards and headliner.
Green stuff brake pads. Steers and handles well. New custom exhaust with correct twin-tipped chrome tail pipes (added in past year - the photos show the old exhaust tips). Airhorn plays La Cucaracha - this isn't working currently, though i suspect its just an easy fuse or connection issue). Nice B&M Drag Racing shifter which enables you to manually change gear quickly just by hitting the shifter.
Folder of receipts and paperwork going back several owners including some original marketing info and paperwork from its initial retail sale.
This car was used for the TransAm sound effects in the computer game GTA V!
Car has been in storage all year on SORN but I am getting it MOT-d 26th November and will be sold with 12 months MOT.
