Engine rebuilt by previous owner about 15K miles ago and with the 6X heads - I have the receipt - Engine runs great with excellent power
The electronic choke works and is set properly
Hooker Super Comp headers and an Edelbrock 850 carb were installed - I no longer have the original carb. No hesitation and great acceleration.
Hotchkis suspension components
4 Wheel Wilwood disc brakes with cross-drilled rotors
The A/C system was converted from R12 to R134A and blows cold - The original condenser was used, so it doesn't blow as cold as modern cars
Windshield wipers and washers work well
The car will leak a drop or two of oil and/or gear oil as it currently sits for extended periods of time
The battery was just replaced last week


The body was rust free and stripped down to bare metal - I do have pictures of the restoration
The car was painted in the original Solar Gold
The car has excellent depth for a metallic color, and there isn't a single spot of orange peel on the car
The decals were precisely applied per the factory shop manual
Windows are all original
There is a very small crack in the base/clear on the passenger side C-pillar as shown in the picture above - There is also a very small similar crack in the front bumper cover
The WS6 wheels are in overall good condition, as the factory powder coating is still intact


The front seats were recovered and new foam was added
The rear seats are original to the car and show slight fading on the top - They were in too good of condition to replace
The dash is original and shows some slight warping but is in very good condition for being 37 years old
The gauge cluster has a speedometer from a 1970-1974 car, and the speedometer reads high
All gauges (except for the speedometer) work as they should - Yes, the clock works too
The carpet was replaced and is still in nearly new condition
The car has a new headliner
Some of the interior plastic pieces are somewhat brittle and discolored due to age
The radio works but the speakers do not and I believe they are original - This was something I never got around to replacing, as I'd rather listen to that Pontiac 400 through Super Comp headers
I tried to keep as many of the original interior pieces as possible to maintain an original feel to the car
