1981 "Bandit" Trans Am Y84 Special Edition (VIN# 1G2AW87W9BL108960). Black with Gold Bird, decals and original 8" aluminum gold wheels. Tan interior. Powered by a 4.9 liter V8 engine (replaced original engine with another 1987 T/A engine) and equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning, t-tops, power steering, power brakes, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows, power door locks and am/fm stereo. Includes build sheet and owners manual. Car looks, runs, and drives great. Very well preserved with only 120,930 actual miles and no rust. Placed into storage from 1993-2006, prior to partial restoration. This is the last year for this body style. It was my first car, which I purchased from the original Pontiac dealer, who had sold it new to the original owner less than a year earlier. Original owner had to trade-in for a family car within months of purchase.
