Description for Pontiac Trans Am 1982

For sale is a very rare 1982 Recaro Trans Am. I purchased this with the intentions of restoring it but circumstances have changed and I'm offering it for sale as complete. I'm hoping there is someone interested in saving this rare find. If not, I know the value of the parts on this car and will then part out.
I am the third owner. I purchased the car from the original owners brother who bought it for his son.
The engine was pulled and sent to be rebuilt by their mechanic and the console was removed to start interior work. The mechanic they sent it to passed away after taking engine apart, and the car has sat for the past 17 years under a carport in the desert, while the engine sat in crates sent to his fathers house.
If you are familiar with 1982 Trans Am's You know only 2000 Recaro Editions were made, and most came with automatic transmission and that Pontiac could not get many of the Borg Warner Super T-10 4 speed transmissions and had to replace them with a GM transmission early in production. Also the WS6 Package With 4 wheel disc brakes, limited rear slip axle was halted because of shortage of rear disc brake components and the WS7 with only front disc brakes was used..... *This vehicle came equipped with both options.
This is a numbers matching car, but it is definitely a project car that will be one very rare and hard to find vehicle when restored.
PROS-
*Recaro Seats .... *4-15" Gold Turbo Cast Wheels.... *4-15" Bowling Ball Hubcaps.... *WS6 Package consisting of 4-wheel disc brakes (J65), limited slip rear axle a.k.a. positraction with 3.23 : 1 gears (G92), 32mm rear sway bar, 21mm front sway bar, stiffer springs & shocks, quick 12.7 : 1 steering box ratio..... * Borg Warner Super T-10 4-Speed Transmission.....* T-Tops....* Is a numbers matching car and can easily be restored to original...Very Solid Body and Frame....
CONS-
It is a project car, needs restoration.... Has been sitting over 17years....When I picked up engine they had lost two pistons and rods..the radiator..all bolts..and the distributor....
The rest of engine...., block, heads, intake manifold,exhaust manifolds, carburetor, crankshaft, oil pan, etc. are all still apart in crates, but they are all original...
Paint is shot and there are quite a few very small dings mostly on passenger side, as shown in pictures...Owner said hail on the one side, anyway needs new paint....Rear bumper cover has hole as shown in picture....
DISCLAIMER: Vehicle is sold AS IS with NO WARRANTY and Buyer Understands this is a Used Project Vehicle.
Buyer is Responsible for Pick Up and Delivery and also must arrange for the shipping of engine block and all misc parts. I will be happy to assist you, just ask.
CAR IS ALSO FOR SALE LOCALLY, SO RESERVE RIGHT TO END AUCTION AT ANYTIME....
