Seller's Notes

If you love classic T/As, it's time to pay attention. This 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the best stuff you want – T-tops, the original turbocharged V8, plenty of docs, and the sought-after WS6 suspension package. So when a survivor-grade classic like this is up for grabs, you know you want to be first in line.

The factory-correct Silver Metallic has a sleek look that's perfect for a turbo T/A. This paint is even believed to be original to the car. The level of gloss and shine it still radiates is a testament to what kind of care this car has received for nearly four decades. Everything looks great on the sporty T/A package that includes the full body kit with front air dam, wide fender flares, and the full-width rear spoiler. You'll also love the turbo-specific details, like the offset hood scoop and special alloys. And not only is the trim in a cool-coordinating blue, but also no one can escape the clutches of the bold and iconic hood bird that's front and center.

The interior is just as well preserved as the exterior, and that's a good thing, because this came loaded from the factory. The black looks good against the silver, and let's face it, when you have a T-top T/A like this you're going to want to keep it open to the world. Another feature to have when the T-tops are out is the set of cloth bucket seats. After all, you'll never be afraid to hop into this one wearing shorts. Plus, the air conditioning has been converted to R134a to make sure your wind-in-the-hair experience is a cool one even in the summertime. And while you'll be amazed at how nice the whole original presentation is, don't forget to check out all the features like power windows, power locks, electric rear defogger, cruise control, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo. This is a driver's classic, so you get to face iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel, cool machined aluminum dash, and the full gauge package with tach/clock combo. And while '60s Pontiacs were famous for having the tach on the hood, this special more modern T/A gives you the status of the turbo in lights.

Lift the hood for a very unique presentation. The 4.9-liter turbocharged V8 motor was only offered for two years, and fans instantly identify this setup with the offset air topper that makes room for the turbocharger. On a car so well preserved thus far, you'll be glad to know that this very correct-looking engine bay also contains the original numbers-matching motor. More than just historical, this is a well-maintained package that runs smoothly. These unique T/As were a cool addition to the lineup when the big torque of the V8 would get you off the line and the turbo offered an extra hit of power in the mid-range. Plus, this comes with great handling thanks to the desirable WS6 package. It includes a larger sway bars, tighter steering box ratio, and four-wheel disc brakes. This option made the Trans Am the favorite of most automotive magazines back in the day. Add in power steering and TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and you've got a terrific total cruising package.

An amazingly preserved classic like this needs the right paperwork to complete the package, and so this one comes with a reproduction window sticker, factory buildsheet, service manuals, and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation. The mileage is believed to be actual. The mileage does match up with the carfax, but is currently exempt on the title. That makes it a great classic with the best material to back it up. So when that's on one of the most desirable Trans Ams around, you know you have to act fast to grab it. Call today!!!
