1973 Pontiac Trans Am SD455 Resto-Mod

Recommended Posts

I haven't shown many of my latest builds. Here is a 1973 Trans Am SD455 that I built from a MCW Resin body, Decals are from Keith Marks and the wheels are from Hobby Design. Built this mostly as a stock build and could easily take the wheels tires and brakes off to make this one stock.

Here is a video from my You Tube channel. I did a lot of videos on this one from start to finish as I had a lot of requests to do this build step by step. But this is the finished one.

Looks great. I especially like the color and wheel/tire combination. That's my favorite Trans Am body style.

Love it Raoul. Especially the color. 👍

I have a '79 started in the same shade of green but with the gold decals.

I do a lot of lurking. Focusing on my channel and building when I can. I spend a lot of time with my 3 year old now so that limits the modeling time and computer time.

Very nice bird Raoul!

Firebird were very nice looking cars no matter the production year but I must admit that I do have a weak for '70 to '73 model years.  The dark green you picked is very beautiful on this car and the gold mag wheels are the beautiful match for this muscle car.  I always loved this screaming eagle on the hood... a very distinctive trade mark for the brand!  Well done sir!

Ahh, Brewster green!

Very rare color for 73, but it was available on the SD and Trans Am.

Yours captures the look of that color very well. I'd like to have a real one like that.

Raoul, you killed it, that bad boy rocks. I done mine as stock several years back. Built from the Monogram kit, One of my all time favs..😊
