This stunning 1971 Pontiac Pro Touring Trans Am started life as a extremely original 1971 Pontiac Esprit. The builder stated he paid $12,000 for the Esprit due to its superior condition. I purchased this car from the builder more than two years ago with about 5000 miles on the completed project. It is a thrill to drive with great handling, braking and acceleration. Living in Los Angeles does not often allow the open spaces to really get on it so it often sits covered in the garage. It did not come with a dyno sheet but similar LQ9 engine builds create in excess of 450 HP.

and injectors, OEM ECM with custom tune, Custom wiring harness, aluminum radiator with integrated temp sensor and fabricated fan shroud with two 800 CFM fans.
