Despite minimal brightwork, Special Edition Trans Ams were highly decorated cars that brought new meaning to the word details. Up front, a straight and glossy urethane front bumper houses Special Edition-specific gold headlight inserts which center on a traditional red Pontiac arrow head emblem to provide the brands familiar dual grille, quad headlight look. Behind that bumper, the cars great looking T/A-6.6 branded shaker hood sits in front of pristine Soft Ray A01 tinted glass which is bordered by correct black molding.

Behind the motor, an original automatic transmission, which wears a correct 28N133946 partial VIN. At the center of the car, a power boosting mandrel bent true dual exhaust system barks out a deep, vintage sound from modern two chamber mufflers. At the corners of the car, aluminum Pontiac snow flake wheels spin Special Edition exclusive gold paint and correct Goodyear white letter tires.

Below those seats, like-new black carpet which displays no fading or unraveling; and between the seats, a silver trimmed console props buttons for the cars power windows behind a leather wrapped shifter. At the top of the car, a stain-free headliner is stretched tight around the aforementioned Hurst T-tops, chrome door handles below Special Edition-exclusive gold badging. In front of the driver, a gold, engine-turned dash houses clear gauges, controls for heat and air conditioning, and the cars original correct gold Formula steering wheel and optional tilt steering column N33. And behind the cockpit, a clean and tidy trunk, which carries storage bags for the Hurst t-tops and a correct Space Saver spare tire ...For more information please call 480-699-8444.
