For Sale: 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in Casper , Wyoming

Vehicle Description

1981 Pontiac Firebird TRANS AM; 4.9 Turbo

This is a SURVIVOR!  Original 33K miles.  It has not been restored or altered or retrofitted.  This car is 1 family owned and has been in a garage for the last 16 years. It was conservatively driven.  It has not been wrecked.

It was custom ordered and the build sheet is shown in the photos. Please note that the firebird on the decal with never installed on this car from the factory.  The car has original paint and could benefit from professional paint reconditioning.   I believe it to have virtually all options available in 1981.  Similarly the wheels would clean up nicely.  

Highlights include:

Power locks and windows

Tinted Glass

Cruise control 

Pulse wipers

Air conditioning

4 wheel disc brakes

Cloth bucket seats and much more. 

Please note the wipers, power windows, and even the cruise control work. 

More details about this car.  Since it sat in a garage for about 16 years, the fuel system needed replaced, including a new tank and a carburetor rebuild.  Many, many other things were done to this vehicle by an certified mechanic in Casper, Wyoming.   The transmission was service, it has brand new shocks, new brakes, new master cylinder, brake rubber, fresh oil, battery and more as is detailed in the photos.  It has brand new Cooper Cobra tires. It has over $4200 in fresh parts and labor as detailed in the documents (and with the new Cooper Cobras), 

It essentially drives as it did new complete with cold blooded starts.  

Despite being garaged most of its life, it has a few flaws. 

The a/c system either needs recharged with the old refrigerant or it needs to be retrofitted to the new system.  Either option would cost a couple hundred dollars.  My mechanic ran out of time to get this done and I wanted to drive the car a bit before selling it. 

The power door locks need lubricated which likely required the door panel to be removed.  Some of the weatherstripping is cracked a the base of the door windows.  The 8 track Am/FM works as well as it ever did in AM/FM mode but the 8 track is, customarily, finicky. 

The car has be garaged in Wyoming which is very very dry so there is no corrosion but rubber parts can dry out.  There is a dent in the passenger side rear quarter panel I have tried to show in photos.  The paint is original so it has a few minor scuffs here and there.  I am happy to send more photos to interested serious buyers.
