Vintage Car of the Month
1977 Pontiac Trans AM

Posted On August 1, 2016

Owned by Robert & Francine from Amherstburg, ON

“The 1977 Trans Am became part of our family on May 16 2002 . It was Brentwood Brown in color with a Buckskin interior.

After researching the history of our car we discovered that it originated in Medicine Hat Alberta at the Jack Stephanson Pontiac- Buick Dealership. It was one of 2,959 imported to Canada with the W72 performance package.

We drove the car for about 3 years –replacing parts as needed. It was at this point that we met Jesse at JH Restorations in Windsor—and the discussion about a restoration began. We mapped out a long term plan to bring our car to what it is today. We wanted to keep the car looking original but made several upgrades along the way including rear disc brakes, power windows, vintage air conditioning, 17 inch wheels and tires etc. We did not want the car to look like the” Bandit” version which was the black and gold combination.

It took about 10 months to find our color combination which is” Crystal lake blue” with the original Light Buckskin interior.

Early in 2015 we decided it was time for a performance upgrade so we decide to upgrade the 400 cubic inch engine to a 461 stoker. The results were incredible!! We finally completed the Trans AM to what we envisioned 10 years ago!

I want to thank the entire crew at JH Restorations for all their help in restoring my car to what it is today!!”

I used to have a 1965 Corvette when I was younger. Weird thing is that I bought it the day Charles and Diana got married and I sold it the day she died.
