For Sale: 1989 Pontiac Firebird in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind restomod. That means you have a custom exterior, custom A/C interior, an upgraded suspension, and an awesome fuel-injected LS1 under the hood.

If you're looking for a sleeper we suggest you look elsewhere. It's not that this one is not overly brazen, but you'll never fly under the radar with a custom hood that included 4th-gen style ram air scoops. And the later spoiler has been expertly integrated as another nod to the upgraded power in this coupe. Gold racing stripes, hood pins, and polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with an aggressive 16/17-inch front/rear stagger are all part of the enhanced performance attitude. The burnt orange paint is a later application that has a terrific metallic element to get this restomod noticed. And the good gloss shows off the crisp body lines that tell you this custom is also a well-respected classic. And that's the overall impression of this one. It's custom and speedy, but with quality in the details that let you know it was a true enthusiast build.

The interior has some more cool references to the upgraded motor. For example, F-body fans will recognize the 4th-gen Camaro seats that were integrated both front and rear. But since this two-tone gray fits well with the factory colors, others might just see it as clean and comfortable upholstery. One clear advantage of this is the driver's seat is now power-adjustable. There are more great features, like power windows, power mirrors, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. The T-tops let you open this one up to the world, and cold-blowing air conditioning lets you enjoy this feature even in the summer. Also, just like the exterior, you can all see the extra care within the custom style from the little things, like the working dome lights and the T-top storage bags. There's an upgraded B&M shifter, and the Grant sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the factory speedo and tach. And now you also have auxiliary readouts on the A-pillar.

All the extra performance flair inside and out is earned when you see what's under the hood. This gen Firebird was quite powerful, but the next generation got the bedrock of modern performance: the 5.7-liter LS1 V8. So this one was upgraded correctly and done with care. That's why it not only looks as good as if the factory did the work, but also you have a large Be Cool aluminum radiator to help keep the full package running cool. The 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission is another great upgrade. It was designed to handle the LS motor with a stout construction and quick kick-downs into power, and it's also good at providing easy overdrive cruising. This feeds a 12-bolt rear end with Moser diff cover. As you look underneath, you'll spot more great updates, like a custom frame brace, newer bushings, tubular rear arms, and an adjustable Panhard bar. There's also power steering, modern sport tires, and upgraded Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.

This is the crisply beautiful 3rd-gen Trans Am with the 4th-gen LS1 heart you always wanted it to have. So don't let this custom restomod slip away. Call today!!!
