Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1981 Factory Y84 Special Edition 4 Speed Trans AM which is in good overall condition. This documented Y84 Trans Am is very rare being only 1 of 947 ever built in its original configuration with a 305 Factory Chevy Engine and 4 Speed manual transmission. This SE TA came from California around 2 years ago and is very solid. This special edition TA features Starlight Black paint with SE decals, a nice vinyl interior, the factory 305 engine and 4 speed transmission, and PHS Documents. This Trans Am has no visible rust anywhere and is very solid with great lines and gaps. There is no bubbling or cracked paint anywhere on the body. The underside is original and not covered up with cheap spray paint. There are no rust concerns anywhere on the frame, floors, rockers, trunk, or tail panel. This Trans Am is finished in the most beautiful and most desirable color combinations of Starlight Black (code 19) over tan vinyl interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured above and PHS documents. These special low production SE 4 Speed Trans Am's are some of the most sought after collectible TA's on the market. They continue to increase in value and desirability.
The Starlight Black exterior is in good overall stock condition. This Trans Am has an average Starlight Black paint job with factory SE decals and pin stripping. The paint is in ok condition with no signs of visible rust anywhere on the body or underneath and both bumpers are in good shape. There is no bubbling paint or any signs of rust on the body and no signs of rust repairs. The underside is honest and rust free and not covered up with undercoating or cheap spray paint. The current paint job is a 10 footer with blemishes as you get closer to the car as can be seen in the photos. There may be some imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but nothing was intentionally excluded from the photos. The tires have great tread left and are sized 225/60/15 and the 8" snowflake wheels are in good shape. All weather stripping and window sweeps are in good condition. Trunk is very solid and clean with the space saver spare tire and jack, with an original style felt trunk mat.
The tan vinyl interior of this Trans Am is in good overall condition. The seat covers have been replaced and are in good condition with no noticeable wear, no rips, no seam splits, or fading. The carpet is in good overall condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash is in good condition with no cracks, no warping, and no fading. The digital AM/FM 8 track stereo looks great in the car and sounds good. The door panels were just replaced and are in like new condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in good overall condition. The package tray is in good condition as well. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should but the temp gauge seems to be intermittent. The horn is not working. Reverse lock out linkage is still in place from the factory, so to removed the keys the car must be in reverse. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever and the ash tray looks brand new.
This Trans Am is in ok mechanical condition and runs and drives but has been sitting for at least 2-3 years. Most likely this SE TA will need some sorting and mechanical work. It runs and drives as seen in the video. The car shifts through all gears just fine. The brakes work and the front calipers were replaced not long ago. It steers well and handles good. The exhaust was replaced with a transverse muffler with a newer catalytic converter and gives this TA a nice rumble at idle and cruising speeds. In the video one can observe this car running and driving and shifting through the gears. This Trans Am fires right up and holds idle quickly. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. The thermostat was changed recently along with new oil and filter. Also, the engine bay is mostly stock and clean. This is a factory NON AC car which really cleans up the engine bay and improves performance and reduces weight. The speedometer is currently not working.
