4.9 Liter Turbo
If you love classic T/As, it\'s time to pay attention. This 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has all the best stuff you want - T-tops, low miles, the numbers-matching turbocharged V8, the factory buildsheet, and the sought-after WS6 suspension package. So when a cool and correct classic like this is up for grabs, you know you want to be first in line.
The factory-correct Cameo White has a timeless appeal, and it was even resprayed later in life to make sure it knows how to radiate in the sunshine. It also makes for a terrific backdrop for the iconic hood bird. This one seem so much more aggressive in red, and that attitude continues with the full trim package. Everything looks great on the sporty T/A setup that includes the full body kit with front air dam, wide fender flares, and the full-width rear spoiler. You\'ll also love the turbo-specific details, like the offset hood scoop and special alloys.
All the red accenting on the exterior get you ready for the full red interior. It\'s a bold color that we don\'t see too often on these Trans Ams. So it makes it even more special to have a low mileage car (averaging under 950 miles annually) that gives you a well preserved package. And because the red coordinates with the exterior accents, it really gives you added reason to take out the T-tops and share this full style with the world. Another great feature to have when the T-tops are out are the cloth bucket seats. After all, you\'ll never be afraid to hop into this one wearing shorts. Plus, the factory air conditioning has been converted to R134a and will just need servicing to keep you cool again. And while you\'ll be amazed at how nice the whole original presentation is, don\'t forget to check out all the worthwhile features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and the AM/FM/cassette stereo. This is a driver\'s classic, so you get to face iconic components like the Trans Am\'s special three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt steering column,) cool machined aluminum dash, and the full gauge package with tach/clock combo. And while \'60s Pontiacs were famous for having the tach on the hood, this special more modern T/A used the space to give you the status of the turbo in lights.
Lift the hood for a very unique presentation. The 4.9-liter turbocharged V8 motor was only offered for two years, and fans instantly identify this setup with the offset air topper that makes room for the turbocharger. On a car so well preserved thus far, you\'ll be glad to know that this very correct-looking engine bay also contains the numbers-matching motor. More than just historical, this is a well-maintained package that runs smoothly. These unique T/As were a cool addition to the lineup when the big torque of the V8 would get you off the line and the turbo offered an extra hit of power in the mid-range. Plus, this comes with great handling thanks to the desirable WS6 package. It includes a larger sway bars, tighter steering box ratio, and four-wheel power disc brakes. This option made the Trans Am the favorite of most automotive magazines back in the day. Add in power steering and TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and you\'ve got a terrific total cruising package.
The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet so you can verify all these cool features whenever you want. So when you have this level of presentation on one of the most desirable Trans Ams around, you know you have to act fast to grab it. Call today!!!
