Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer a 1980 Pontiac
Firebird Trans Am! The Second-generation Pontiac Firebird Trams Am
features some of the most beloved and iconic models produced
including the rare 1970 Ram Air III, the black & gold 1977 Smokey &
the Bandit Special Edition, and the 1979 10th Anniversary Edition.
During the last two years of its run, Pontiac offered a special
engine and appearance package known as the Turbo Trans Am. Due to
the increasing emissions restrictions, Pontiac dropped all its
large displacement engines, including the venerable 400cid V8
following the 1979 model year. Along with a conventional 305 CID
small-block V8, Pontiac offered the first forced induction
production engine, a turbocharged 301 V8 in 1980-81. The 4.9L Turbo
was unique in that it had a stronger block with thicker cylinder
walls and a lower compression ratio given the increased pressure
created by the turbo system. Also included were newly developed
internals including forged pistons, a high-pressure oil pump, a
roller fillet crankshaft with 2 counterbalances, a fully baffled
oil pan, and turbo-specific exhaust manifolds. The 301 Turbo was
officially factory rated at 210hp and 345 lb. ft of torque and
mated to a TH350 automatic transmission and 3.08 Posi rear end.
