This 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Restomod is all about modern
fuel-injected LS3 power, an overdrive transmission, and a cool
matte black with gold undertones. But even with all this modern
flair, it still never loses that vintage T-top cool coupe feeling
you love so much.
This one is instantly striking. The matte black is a full wrap over
a genuine black paint car. But what makes this extra special is
that the sunshine reveals a golden metal flake within the material.
So while we all love a T/A in black with gold trim, this one
specially combines them along the whole body! It has all the gold
accents you love, like all the T/A logos on the car. But we really
know your favorite golden piece is the 20-inch DUB alloys. Plus,
this one is really for a lover of details. Because not only is
there a cool-looking gloss black on places like the window
surrounds and bumpers, but even the iconic hood bird has gloss
black around its gold. So it's a well-coordinated total
Inside the black and gold theme continues with the all-black
interior accented by the gold machine-turned dash panel that's a
hallmark of these Trans Ams. The whole setup is clean, comfortable,
and absolutely cool. So you'll love taking the T-tops out and
sharing them with the world. You get upgraded bucket seats with
comfy cloth inserts, an armrest center console, and the classic T/A
sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. This gives you a
clear view to the upgraded gauges with large speedo and tach. And
they cleanly installed a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with touchscreen
receiver and connection for your iPod. This connects to the full
custom speaker system in the trunk.
Under the hood is the best upgrade of them all. This is a
fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 performance crate motor. It's the
powerhouse for some of the best performance GM cars of the latest
generation, and so it's terrific to have this professional
installation in the engine bay today. The motor fires up readily,
like a modern FI powerplant should. And the long tube headers add
power and growl to the dual exhaust, so this one always announces
it's something special. The 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission
is a stout unit built to handle this motor's power, and at the same
time, it provides silky smooth shifts all the way into overdrive.
Plus, you have power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, a
Hotchkis rear sway bar, and the grip of modern performance tires
that all give you confidence on the road.
This one upgrades all the cool looks you love about a classic T/A
and there's a ton of added power, too. So you know you need to get
your hands on this one right now.
