1985 Pontiac Trans Am
The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli is America's Road Racing
Series and dates back to 1966. Throughout the years, some of the
greatest names in motorsports have participated in the Trans Am
Series. Names like Tommy Kendall, Mark Donohue, Peter Gregg, Bob
Tullius and Wally Dallenbach, Jr. have all won multiple
championships under the Trans Am name.
For consignment, something only seen once here at our temple of
classic hallways, an 80's Trans Am. Yes, we hear and see the Smokey
and the Bandit Trans Am's of yore and our share of 1990's models,
but this mid 80's design was "Da Bomb" in this writer's opinion.
Read on, now that I've got your interest.
Bathed in Viper Blue and striped in Viper White, I'm melting like a
hot tire in the staging lane when I view this unique, hidden
headlight version of the Trans AM. Body matching neoprene for the
front bumper and clean body matching rockers as we move to the rear
of this beauty. Here we see a greenhouse glass rear deck, and a
striped spoiler on the trunk lid top. On our way back I had to stop
at the smoked glass removable T top which has like new seals and is
a nifty option to have. On the rear the horizontal gridded strip of
lighting and winged badging sits just above the rear neoprene body
matching bumper. Now showing 17-inch American Racing Torque Thrust
polished 5 spoke wheels wrapped in all season rubber radials. I
think it's that long snout and hood combo I'm in love with.
Light gray velour broadcloth seats in high back bucket form flank a
dark gray center console. This gently rises to the dash where we
see a black front dash with plenty of round inset gauges. This is
all fronted by an original steering wheel. Within the console is
the shift lever, handbrake and window toggles. A digital equalizer
radio is neatly installed from the factory. In back more light and
dark gray velour broadcloth in the form of a split seat, (by the
hump), and split back rear bench setup. Gray carpeting is all
around, and just slight smudging is on the driver's floorboard
covering. Door panels use the shades of gray along with some molded
black plastic for the door pulls and actuator panel. There is
plenty of room to throw your stuff in the fully opening rear
greenhouse space, also covered in clean gray carpeting.
Under the hood is now a consignor-stated 350ci V8. It has Edelbrock
fuel injection and a 700R4 transmission which is a 4-speed
automatic. On the back a 10-bolt 3.08 rear axle is on.
Some surface rust is noted in the usual steel structures, but floor
pans and rockers are rust free and have a wearing off finish of
undercoat. In front we note independent coil spring suspension, and
on back torque arms with coil springs. Power disc braking is on all
4 corners, and a Borla exhaust is now installed.
I'm ready to make the Viper blues sing as I slip inside bound for
the test track. Here it did well, with nice acceleration, good
handling and bias free panic stopping. All functions were working
as they should and it was an overall good test drive which left me
with a smile on my face...( Some I just say sheesh, but not this
Now showing with a 350ci V8/EFI, Borla exhaust, and broadcloth
interior this Viper Blue and Viper White striped mid 80's, (not oft
seen), version of the Trans Am is an eye catcher and a
