Vehicle Description

West Coast Classics are proud to present a virtually still as new 'time capsule' example of this penultimate year of the 2nd generation, amp; fully loaded with Special Edition Black Trans Am package 1980 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with reportedly and believed to be original 14K original miles! This car was powered by the Pontiac Turbo charged 4.9L 301 c.i. engine and this must be one of the very finest and unmolested all stock example's available anywhere and it is easy to see why it is considered the 'Last Trans Am with a Pontiac Soul' by Trans Am enthusiasts! In 1969, the first of the fire-breathing Firebird Trans Am's, named after the Sports Car Club of America's late 60's Trans-American racing series, debuted as a Firebird $725 option package and boasted a potent Ram-Air 400 V8 with heavy duty suspension, steering and brakes and was fated to be a one year only model which went on to keep the Pony Car flame burning strong throughout the 70's virtually all by itself, when most of the other muscle cars either disappeared or dropped their engine displacements! Pontiac had no part in that sell out for its high performance Trans Am motors during the 70's and maintained 400 or 455 cid V8's even as the Corvettes and Camaros dropped to 350 cid and the Mustang down to 302 cid by mid decade.1981 was the last year of the 2nd generation Trans Am and although production for the legendary Trans Am marque did not end until 2002, from a purist's standpoint, the last true Trans Am in tune with the original Trans Am spirit ceased production in 1981 with the 2nd generation (1970-81), made famous by the 1977 and 1980 'Smokey and the Bandit' movies. GM retired the 301 CID 4.9L Turbo in 1981 and in 1982 the Trans Am had to make so with same Chevrolet small block found in Camaro models from 1982-2002.This particular car still boasts its original paint and interior and it is still virtually flawless with no history of any accidents or paintwork and no rust anywhere and reportedly has 14K original miles! The original factory paint is in exceptional and still as new condition throughout and the Black cloth seats are also still as when new throughout with no signs of wear and every option is working as it should including the A/C. This particular model must be driven to be fully appreciated - the car drives as good as it looks with no shakes or rattles with the considerable power of it's 4.9 litre 301 Turbo V8 engine!The car's original factory options include:Special Edition Trans Am ($1,443) consists of:Removable Hatch RoofGold Hood DecalFormula Steering WheelGold Cast Aluminum WheelsGold Accented I Panel Trim PlateGold Striping amp; DecalsSpecial Performance Package ($281) consists of:Cast Aluminum 8" Wheels225/70R15WL Steel Belt Radial TiresPower Brakes, Front amp; Rear DiscsSpecial Handling PackageCustom Trim Group ($187) consists of:Custom Velour Bucket SeatsCustom Velour Rear SeatDoor Handle OrmanentationPedal Trim PackageCustom Interior AppointmentsCustom Color Keyed BeltsControlled Cycle Windshield Wipers ($41)4.9L Trans Am 301 4 BBL V8 engine ($350)L37 amp; W72 (Not available in CA)Body Side Moldings ($46)Air Conditioning ($566)Heavy Duty Battery ($23)Cruise Control ($112)Engine Block Heater ($16)Softy Ray Glass All Windows ($68)Additional Acoustical Insulation ($34)Lamp Group ($22)Front amp; Rear Mats ($27)Delco AM/FM Radio/Cassette ($285)Rear Deck SpoilerFormula Steering WheelStarlight Black PaintTrim Black ClothTrim Appointments BlackLimited Slip DifferentialGauges, Rally, Clock amp; IP TachSport MirrorsStowaway Spare TirePower SteeringWindshield Reveal moldingBacklite Black MoldingBucket SeatsConsoleColumn MountedDimmer SwitchHigh Energy Ignition SystemShakerhoodConcealed Windshield WipersSpecific Black TaillampsFront Center Air Dam amp; Front amp; Rear Wheel OpeningAir DeflectorsFront Fender Air Extractors This is one very striking, unique and attractive all American muscle car and this must surely be one of the very nicest unabused example's left available anywhere of this 1980 legendary 2nd generation Trans Am model with only 14K original miles!
