$45,000 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

Mint Condition 1989 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo 20th Anniversary Indy Pace Car! Original owner! 799 miles!

This is 1 of only 1,555 made. My father bought the car brand new in 1988 and has stored the car ever since, starting the engine every 3 months and driving on rare occasions just to keep the car fully performing, and recently shipped it to me in an enclosed trailer. Car has been well-maintained and parts replaced as needed when the power antenna and rear hatch latching mechanisms stopped working.

Car is 100% factory condition! It is pristine and like new inside and out. Please contact me for more photos.

Car has been in storage since purchased new (heated garage stored during winters) and driven on occasion, just to keep the car performing 100%!

When released in Fall 1988, this model was issued as a Collector's Item with such limited production, and was the Indy Pace Car in 1989. The power and performance was designed to be one of the fastest production cars at that time, with a 0-60 in 4.5 secs, and 1/4 times just under 12 secs. It would be an ideal collectable for some people, while being a thoroughbred Hot Rod enjoyed by others.

The car comes with T-Top and Holders, Pace Car Stickers, and Authentication Certificates in the original box as they have NEVER been put on the car.
