      PRICE DROP 78 Trans Am LS/6spd Restomod

      78 Trans Am
      Owner - Kyle Simpson 864-597-6885
      Spartanburg, SC
      $47K (price drop down from $52k on 4/7/21)

      Up for sale is this bad to the bone 78 Trans Am resto mod. This car started life as a nicely optioned red Trans Am (build sheet included). It was restored in 2016 and now has 10,000 miles on the build. The new car bugs are long gone, and you can drive this car anywhere, worry free. I put over 200 miles on it just this weekend at Run to the Sun in Myrtle Beach, SC. The car was a complete nut and bolt rotisserie resto, and was done by a father and son who own a performance and resto shop. Nothing was left untouched on the car. All factory metal was reused and is laser straight. A few chips here and there from normal driving but nothing that anyone really notices. It will win shows, run hard on the track, daily drive if you want to, or take long trips. This car always draws a crowd, sounds killer, and runs great. I had the car for sale this weekend at a car show, with offers in the low to mid 40 range, and wanted to see if this crowd wanted it more.

      Power windows
      Power locks
      Power trunk
      DSE Wipers (relocated from firewall)

      All this car needs is a new owner. The few items that I have noticed that I would address are:
      1. headliner is a little warped and could stand replacing. Not terrible, but it's something I'd do
      2. car has no park brake assembly, so I would add maybe an electric park brake. Park brakes are installed on rear.
      3. Heater control valve is not opening up with the Vintage Air controller. I have not dug into this issue yet, could be a simple fix. AC blows Ice cold and the system works flawlessly aside from that.
      4. Hood hinges need repainting. I ordered black Ring Brothers hinges which will go with the car if not already installed.

      BUMP! Big price drop to $47k.

      You will NOT find more car for the money....just compare it to the other 2 late 2nd Gen birds on here and you'll see that!
      I have also ordered brand new Ring Brothers hinges in black, which will go with the car for the right price, or even be installed prior if I have time.

      8645976885 let's make a deal

      Any interest in a 17 Challenger Hellcat in trade? Silver with red leather...lots of mods.

      Also I see the block is painted blue is it a iron block or aluminum? I know it says LS1 and LS1s are aluminum I have just never seen anyone paint an aluminum block motor before.
