The wheels are worth that much. The hood maybe more. Yes, a great deal for some lucky local.

Sweet ride, sorry to see it was a victim of Sandy. Hope your buddy is doing well. My dad has 1975 Trans-Am with the 455. The amount of torque those cars put out was impressive, especially when your cousin was eating an Icecream cone talking chit about how the car has. No power and pops drop the clutch and direct hits him in the face with the cone. I would try eBay auction. People were bidding a few k for rust rides that needed total resto. May be difference with flood issue. Best of luck.

Was the car submerged in Salt or fresh water or a mix of both?.. Is the paint new or an older restoration?. Any new interior parts coming with the car?. Sorry for all the questions but im so tempted....smile.gif

Martin067, The car was submerged under salt water. The interior is probably salvageable. The body is in surprisingly good shape, very little rust and no rot that I am aware of. I believe that the paint was an older re-paint. There are a lot of new parts purchased for the car that go with it. I will P.M. you my friends # so you can call him with more specific questions. Thanks for the reply

Does that price include the motor and trans?  Is the 455 original to the car and/or a pontiac motor?  Any photos?  How fast does he need it off his property?

DOING 3 ALTIMAS RIGHT NOW FROM SANDY. OUR MAJOR PROBLEM HAS BEEN THE WIRING. ALL THE FACTORY CONNECTORS ARE GONE, THE SALT WATER EATS THEM UP. LOTS OF WIRING AND ABOUT 300 BUTT CONNECTORS PER CAR. OLDER CARS MAY HAVE STURDIER CONNECTORS, NOT SURE.AND OF COURSE NOT SO MANY WIRES. THIS CAR IS WORTH THE PRICE EVEN IF JUST PARTING OUT. IF IT WASNT SO HIGH TO SHIP I WOULD BE ALL OVER IT.
