With only 697 authentic 1969 Trans Am Ram III cars ever produced, this one comes with PHS documentation to prove its genuine pedigree. This classic boasts a factory deluxe interior with a tachometer, factory AM/FM radio, wood wheel, and stack gauges, all showcasing its originality. Under the hood lies the holy grail of Pontiac Racing History, the 400ci Ram Air V Engine, with stampings that suggest it could be the very first of its kind. Notably, this car features real Ram Air V F Body exhaust manifolds with factory heat shields, a rare find indeed.
The restoration and build of this iconic vehicle were entrusted to the late Bruce Logan, and the stamped #1 400ci Ram Air V was acquired from Phil Baumann, a renowned expert in the field. This Trans Am is equipped with a GM Holley Carburetor and a correct RAM V Distributor, ensuring its performance matches its heritage. According to articles and discussions, the car underwent a meticulous restoration in 1987 by Pontiac experts at Z&Z in California, earning it a featured spot in the August 1988 High Performance Pontiac Magazine.
