This Pontiac Trans Am was a private purchase from the original owner. The seller knew the previous owner and had been trying to purchase it for a few years. The car is mostly original with the exception of one accident with the first owner. Car has bills to show it has had regular maintenance.
PAINT – The paint is very nice, shiny, and smooth. Believed to be mostly original with the exception of the front end. The original paint does match all the way around. Under just the right circumstances with the right light and angle you will see that the front nose & bumper assembly and the light covers are just a shade off from the rest of the car.(see pictures) Upon inspecting the passenger door (just above the molding with looking up close with a flash light) you will notice a few pin head size bubbles in the paint. The car has picked up a few nicks from normal usage on the passenger head light cover and nose of the car(above license plate). Misc chips include, the passenger door (front and back edge), lower part of right fender, two small nicks behind right rear tire and a light scratch about eight to ten inches long near the right rear exhaust outlet. Over all the paint has held up extremely well with little exposure.
BODY- The body looks very nice and straight but being extremely critical, there are two minor dimples (right and left rear corners. ) Doors and body panels appear to be fitting correctly. According to a magnetic gauge, rear quarters and the hood are the only major steel portions of the car (on the outside skin.) The doors and front fenders are all composite materials or non magnetic. Trunk could have been adjusted to the left slightly and the front has a gap between the right head lamp cover and the fender that appears tighter than it should be.
BRIGHT WORK- Described in tire and wheel section.
GLASS- Both side windows, windshield, and rear window are all the same make (EZ, Kool by LOF) All glass is very clear with no discoloring, delamination, bulls-eyes, cracks, or wiper marks. Only possible place for wear would be few pin head size nicks on the windshield that are from normal driving. There is no damage or cracking on the T-tops.
INTERIOR- No obvious changes or replacements have been made with the interior. The dash and controls show very little wear at all and the rest of the interior all seems to be intact. Console and glass holder appears to be a shade lighter in coloring. The sun visor material is fastened well and the backing is not deteriorated. The headliner has no loose spots or damage and still retains good color. Seats show slight wear (which is normal) and could use a leather softener. You will notice a little wear on driver side upholstery and some light scuffing the on bottom of the door trim. Over all the interior has held up very well!
TRUNK- Shows very little wear. Mini spare and the jack mechanism is in place where it is stored under the right rear speaker. Trunk has holder for both T- tops and shades.
TIRES AND WHEELS- All four tires are Cooper Cobra radial tires. Fronts and rears are P 245-50-16, and tread depth on all tires are 6 /32. There is no cracking or curb damage to the tire and wheels.
Left front- P245/50/16 6/32 Right front- P245/50/16 6/32
Left rear-P245/50/16 6/32 Right rear- P245/50/16 6/32
ENGINE/ TRANSMISSION- Engine compartment has some dust but no obvious changes from factory except a new battery. Nothing appears to be modified except the installation of the Corsa Exhaust system.
TEST DRIVE-Chad drove the car several miles and all functions of the engine, transmission, steering, and brakes, appeared to be working properly as designed. Other testing in person included, Windshield wipers work on both speeds and washers do function. The air conditioner does cool thought it may be a little low on refrigerant. A/C is not as cold as I believe it could be. The rear defroster light does operate, and the selector for heat and ventilation appears to work in all modes. Radio works on both AM and FM and disc player operates correctly. All other radio buttons seem to be working correctly. The power door looks, steering wheels controls, horn, trunk and hood release work. Power windows on left and right both work and both of the power mirrors operate. The locking mechanism on the T- tops work correctly. Antenna does work, head lights all work on high and low beam, and fog lights operate. Front and rear(left and right side) blinkers work.
CHASSIS- It is very evident (looking at the bottom side of the car) it has not been exposed to much weathering. Only slight surface rust on the front suspension component. The rest of the bottom side shows hardly any surface rust at all. (see pictures) There is a little bit of seeping from the A/C compressor. You will notice only a slight dampness around the rear end. It is apparent this car has had little exposure to the elements. There is no rust proofing or undercoating hiding the underside. This is a great way to verify how little the vehicle has been out in the weather.
