For Sale: 1985 Pontiac Firebird in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1985 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has been under the care of the same family all its life thus far, and that's how you get a sharp-looking coupe that's also exceptionally original. And you have desirable features like V8 power, an overdrive transmission, T-tops, and cold-blowing air conditioning. So if you're looking for a car that's a driver, a survivor, and an all-around distinct classic, this one knows how to turn heads without breaking the bank.

This car has been a family affair. The second owner was the brother of the first, and then he passed it to his son. It appears that they were all gentlemen by the way this one appears today, and even the low odometer is believed to reflect the full mileage (averaging under 1,300 miles annually.). These earlier 3rd gen coupes had a leaner look and terrific sharp lines. The factory-correct Blaze Red looks largely original, and we love the design of the decals that let it fade into the silver body effects kit. If you need perfection, you may want to use the value price to invest in some professional paint detailing. But we like how this one remains glossy while still showing the history of four decades in one family. Where you can also see the difference in a one-family car is in the details. The added care shows in the way the doors close with confidence, the weather-stripping is pliable, the panels fit well, and the T-tops rest snugly.

The two-tone interior has a quality feel. The seats, door panels, carpet, and headliner have a stock new-like appearance. So stepping in feels like a time capsule. Front high-back buckets and a center console make for a good driver's car. The three-spoke sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the sporty round gauge package. It's also loaded with power windows, power locks, and a premium Delco AM/FM/cassette stereo. And since the factory air conditioning is blowing nice and cold, this is the ideal car to take out the T-tops and show off the stylish cloth seats, even in the summer.

Under the hood is a 305 cubic-inch V8. It's a strong torque-filled heart that has the power and consistency of fuel injection. The V8 is mated to a 700R4 four-speed automatic to make for an ideal combo of stout construction and smooth shifting all the way into overdrive. More of this good all-around driver feeling is in the power steering, cruise control, sway bars front & rear, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

A car with this kind of history also comes with good paperwork, like the original bill of sale, a window sticker copy, a reproduction buildsheet, the owner's manual packet, and the warranty card. This is the Trans Am that's preserved, loaded, powerful, distinct, and attractive. So when you can get it all for a value price, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call now!
