1975 Trans Am - Up-to-date!!

1975 Trans Am Restoration
So, I’ve never taken the time to post the whole restoration saga on “our” 1975 Trans Am…sorry about that…yeah, it’s my bad.  Anyways, I thought it might be interesting to some, so I decided to start now. I think I’m going to do this as best I can chronologically. Feel free to comment as we travel thru history.

Nov, 2005:  So, my son tells me he is buying a car and wants me to come check it out.  He is 18 so I guess technically, I can’t stop him. As it turns out, it’s a 1975 Trans Am for $5,500.  The car was in pretty good shape with 61,500 mile on the odometer.  The seller found the car in South Carolina on a road trip back from Florida.  The seller brought it but then didn’t have the time to work on it.  I’m worried that this is “too much” car for my kid.  It will be a daily driver for him… he has to commute back and forth to school and work every day. We’ll see how it works out.  I’ll post some picture as soon as I get a chance.  :grin:

I had a T/A as a daily driver when I was 18....Wyoming winters are as bad as anywhere....honestly, there were only a handful of days each winter when the roads were too nasty to get where I needed to be....I would be more concerned about affording to feed it gas...I had a hard time keeping the tank on mine full, and back then gas was under a buck a gallon.... :-D

I will second the whole gas thing. My dad and I bought a 1987 Monte Carlo SS about 4 years ago when I was in college, and one thing that I hugely underestimated was the MPG. I got about 15 MPG with the thing on the highway. The best part was that it needed a tune up in the worst way, but I was too broke to fix it. If it had a tune up it would have gotten much better MPG.

Just FYI I just bought a 2001 GT Mustang for 6k, and I get about 20 MPG that I drive daily. Most of the time I am not easy on the gas, but the previous owner said that he got 27 MPG once on the highway. I know you can pick up some 94-97 Z28 Camaro/Trans Ams for 4-5k if you look hard enough.

Good luck with your search.

  If he really likes the car after he's had it for 6 months and knows he'll want to keep it for years to come.....then tell him to start saving for a different daily driver. I made that mistake and it was 7 years before I ever bought something else to drive....The winters here destroyed my '75 and I paid the price to replace all the rusted panels.

Update…Well, we picked up the car after I got out of work today!! This was the first time I has seen it. It was pretty tough looking at a car in the dark and cold (it was after 5pm). Anyways, from what I could see, it looked OK, it sounded nice and ran well…maybe this will work out!   So we finished the deal and on the way home he ran out of gas…lol, a vision of things to come? Fortunately we were only a block from the nearest convenience/gas station. We had to borrow a gas tank from them and I guess the boyz from India didn’t trust us so I left the “deposit”…oh brother!  To top that off, about half way home he said it became very hard to stop the car.  He had to stomp with both feet on the brake to make it stop. His hands had the shakes when we got home. I’ll go check it out in the morning.
I Know, I know… pictures…they're coming

Update… As it turns out the brake problem was only the hose came off the brake booster.  The seller had changed the booster and probably forgot to tighten the clamp. Glad that was easy. It’s like -15 degrees with the wind chill. My son went for a ride after that and I haven’t seen him since…go figure!!!

Dec, 2005: I know I promised pictures but…OMG…. my son has had the bird for about a month and we just had our 1st big scare. As you know, this is his daily driver and he took it to school today. On the way home, the left rear tire came off on I-95. The tire flew across the highway and it hit a truck on the sound-bound side. That sent the tire flying over the edge of the bridge they were on. This all happened during 5 o’clock traffic and, surprisingly, no one hit him!!! He’s lucky the tire didn’t kill someone or himself. The car got towed and the only damage is a stud need to be replaced and a new drum…wow! When the tire came off, it left a rubber streak on the rear quarter but no dent or even a chip!
Based on what we all see, here is what we think happened. He’s got snowflakes wheels and we think someone tried to rip them off while he was in class. They only got some of the lug nuts off before stopping (maybe someone came to the parking lot?) and never finished the job. My kid didn’t notice and got on the highway with only one lug nut holding the rear tire on… and that didn’t last. That’s the broken stud.
The guy in the truck was ok but he put in claim…it’s a no-fault insurance thing in CT.
Anyways, we are now missing one tire mounted on a snowflake. I guess I should be thankful. As it turns out, he has a friend that has (4) American Racing wheels mount on four good tires that he will give to us for $300…good deal! We will put those on “temporarily”.

April, 2006: I went out and took some pictures today. I know you all are ready to kill me for these. Other than the battery and alternator, it’s pretty much the way we picked it up. From 20 feet, the car looks OK but I specifically was trying to take pictures focused of the worse parts of the car here. All-in-all, I think the electrical system has been “hacked-up” the worse. You might notice some of the gems…two toggle switches by the steering column that control power to the fan and electric choke. Those power leads were taken by cutting away some rubber on the positive cable and taping a wire to it. The wire goes thru the firewall by the fuse box, to the toggles,  under the dash and out the pass door, under the hood to the fan...oh brother!!! Engine looks ugly but starts OK when it cold… If it hot, it will not go. Body has a few rust spot that need TLC….

Aug-Sep, 2006: My kid went out for a ride and the car stalled out on him and it wouldn’t re-start. We have AAA, so he got it towed home. The engine has been intermittently making some scary noises for the last couple weeks. I think he has a serious engine problem. After checking it out, we figured out the engine is locked up tight…we can’t even turn it over by hand. We know someone here in town that owns a machine shop and does some good muscle car work and so, our best option is to have him rebuilt the engine for us.  I don’t have the room to have a car sitting around waiting for him to do something about it and the kid has no money so I’m banking this. So begins the process of taking apart the car…the more I disassemble, the more I find wrong…isn’t that always the way! Fortunately, he had picked up a daily driver (a Hyundai) and can still do the school and work trips. BUT, he seems to have disappeared when it comes to helping with the TA. As I have been taking things apart, I’ve taking a zillion picture…here are a few.

Dec, 06-Mar, 07: Been spending my time cleaning up and painting the engine compartment. The core support is pretty rotted out near the bottom. I found one on eBay and it should be here soon. The engine and tranny are back from being rebuilt. I’ll drop those in after I get new engine mounts, core support mounts, and the core support. In the meantime, I decided to take a look at the floor. I knew there were issues, but I didn’t realize how BAD it was until I took everything out. I think the carpeting was the only thing holding it together. I took the doors off since I’m going to be spending a lot of time in there.  :-x

Apr-Nov, 2007: Like I said before, the more you take apart the more you wanna fix! Doors are off and they will have to get “cleaned” up before they go back on but the big task at hand is the floor pans. I cut out the bad parts while trying to leave as much of the original pan as possible. I bought new pans but they didn’t go all the way underneath the rear seat. I found a donor car for that part (that’s the red one). After I got all the cut and trimmed to shape, I also clean up the exposed frame and cross members. They all got POR15’d. Didn’t get back to the front end this summer but got the new core support painted and ready to go. Just not enough time for everything  :(

Dec, 2007-Jun, 2008: Got the floor pieces all welded in place and then put POR15 on it. That was one pain-in-the-neck job…but, I’m pretty happy with the way they came out. With that part of the job behind me, I went back to cleaning and painting up the doors and door frame.  I decide to completely strip the guts out of the door. It makes it a little easier to work on. I pulled off the seals…they were shot so I’ll replace them. Since I’m going to be getting back to the engine compartment soon I decide to start cleaning up the front fender wells… as you can see they need some TLC.

Jul, 2008 – Oct, 2008: Took a little time to find a decent set of motor mounts and the engine side brackets but I found them and got’ em bolted in place. Bolted up the engine and tranny and, after a little wrestling match  8-), got the engine bolted up. Also picked up a set of headers…should be better than those 3-pipe ones I originally had…lol.  I decided to go with Doug’s ceramic coated. Got the passenger door remount and put seam seal on the “new” floor pans.  Decided to poke around the trunk seal and it was a lot worse than I thought. I gotta stop looking for trouble!!. Well I couldn’t leave it so took it apart, cleanup up all the rust, fixed the metal and repainted. It came out pretty decent. I know I should have torched off the whole thing and replaced it but I never get it back on the road if I did that now… maybe phase 2???  :shock:

Nov, 2008 – Jan, 2009: Didn’t get a whole lot done. It’s been real cold and my garage is not really heated. I’ve got a space heater out there but that doesn’t cut it on those really cold days. Anyways, I did get all the pass door parts installed (except the glass) and everything locks and latches correctly and works smoothly. If you look back at the first pictures, you’ll notice the pass door doesn’t have lock cylinder…never did. I ended up buying a complete set, so both doors, the glove box and truck will get new cylinders and, like original, one key for it all. I also decide to put in Dynamat and so I got started with that. Trunk frame is cleaned up and I installed a new seal, now I cleaning up the lid. Got that core support and all the new bushings installed (yeah, yeah the rope is holding it up temporarily), and also did the bumper supports. With all the sanding and body work I’ve got white dust ALL over the place. I blow my nose and white powder… ah, never mind!   :?  On the engine side, bolted up a new water pump and all got a couple of the brackets on the engine. … AND THE COOLEST THING  8), the headers went on VERY EASILY  8).

Wow...Sharp eye!!! Have you been counting the cases of Bud I've gone through too  :D... you're right I took a lot of pictures and used them as referenece getting it back together. After taking apart that much stuff you are bound to forget, "how did that go together"....unless of course you have a photo memory. NOT HERE  :-?. It one of those tricks you learn. Notice how I had to print them....I'm looking for someone that has tossed an old computer out and I'll put in it in the garage. That way I can view on the screen rather than prints...thats green!  :-P

Feb, 09 – Jun, 09: I finished putting the Dynamat down and got the interior mostly put back in. It was a good feeling to have a back seat & carpeting again! I also got started on cleaning up the driver side door.  It’s in a little worse shape than the pass side door was but it is still good, just needs some TLC.  In the engine compartment, I got the core support, radiator and AC condenser back in and everything is bolted up. I got the front bumper supports, power steering, alternator, thermostat/ housing on too.  I also decided to stick with the original Quadajet but had it rebuilt by JET Performance. Getting that mounted made my day!  :D   I included before and after pictures of the carb. Remember those inner fenders from the earlier picture? ...after a lot of sanding and cleaning, a little welding and a coat of POR and they are ready to be mounted. That’s all for now.
