1987 PONTIAC TRANS AM GTA -- A VERY SPECIAL TRANS AM
Presented here is a rare and unique edition of a Trans Am. The Trans Am
GTA. The Firebird body remained basically unchanged. All center,
high-mounted stop lamps were relocated to a new position between the
spoiler and the rear deck lid, and the large Firebird hood emblem
disappeared forever. All V8's now received factory roller camshafts, and
faced with consumer demands for more power, GM officially released the new
5.7L with tuned port fuel injection. Available only with an automatic
transmission, it produced 210 hp and takes the top performance seat from
the 5.0L L69 production is stopped, leaving the LG4 as the only remaining
carbureted V8 used in the F-body. Trans Am GTA, Gran Turismo Americano, was
introduced, available with the LB9 305 TPI engine, which was returned to
215 hp., or the L98 350 TPI. Gold 16-inch, flat-mesh, diamond-spoke wheels
were standard on GTA, with 16-inch, 20-slot wheels standard on Trans Am.
The Trans Am GTA was Pontiac's pride and joy with a standard 5.7L 350 Tuned
Port Injection (TPI). Many people like to say, incorrectly, that the engine
itself was pulled directly out of the C4 Corvette, which itself began using
the engine in 1985, but the heads on the Corvette were aluminum whereas the
Firebird heads were cast Iron. The GTA came with a standard TH-700R4
automatic transmission, A/C, new seats with inflatable lumbar and side
bolsters, special door panels, epoxy-filled emblems, body-colored ground
effects, a special GTA horn button, and the legendary WS6 performance
handling package. All of these options were packaged into the Trans Am
under the RPO code Y84, and the model was produced until the end of Third
Generation F-body production in 1992. Every thing about this GTA is
spectacular. The paint color, the muscle engine that's "clean as a
whistle", the sporty interior, T-Tops, gold colored wheels, and hatch
revealing plenty of storage. This GTA cost around $14,104 new, has a 101
inches wheelbase and weighs 3,435 lbs. U.S. production of GTA's is 9,481
and Canadian figures show 1,509 units. Thanks very much for viewing this
rare and very special 1987 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

The time is FINALLY here! I got most of a day to put the motor and trans
back into my car! This video is mostly time lapsed. It took me about an
hour total. Mostly because of fiddling with the camera, and having the
dolly wheels sink into the driveway. Took me some time to get it moving
This method works great for me. Mainly because trying to snake a motor and
trans over the front of that car is a pain. I have zero desire to remove
that hood and try to line it back up again. And installing/tightening
those engine mount bolts while its in the car is a real pain too. This way
always works good for me, and as you can see, is totally doable by myself.
I could have used a second set of hands though just to help shove things
around and line things up.
I had some technical difficulties with my camera, and there is some lost
footage of me talking through a few steps, but its no real loss.
Enjoy! If you have any questions or comments please feel free!
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.
