1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo
I thought you'd like a look at this very original 1980 Pontiac Trans Am turbo. It's powered by the turbocharged 301 V8, backed by a 3spd automatic
trans. It really looks great in black with gold accents. The interior
appears to be all original and it's still in fantastic condition. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced
both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive
Trans Ams ever built.
Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire
existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second
generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of
exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors
Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as
it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright
and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body
panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major
imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it
still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight
and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment.
On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining
stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied
Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look.
Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped
hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more
twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more
efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was
beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9
PSI of Boost and helped the reborn
301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345
lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that
prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is
fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and
breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME
800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends
power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard
parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory
original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working
Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end,
and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included
larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box
and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined
with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability
and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through
pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to
exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum
The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional
doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated
appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that
feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet
shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses
chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift
plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking
engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and
air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette
player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that
feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery
are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door
lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum
steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt
With its clean turbocharged motor,
fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest
Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available

133064 / 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SE
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bo38fjp
This 1977 Pontiac Trans Am is just like the one used in Smokey and The
Bandit, and if you grew up in the 70s like I did, it still makes your heart
flutter every time you see one. Not only is it like the one Burt Reynolds
drove, but it is a real 4-speed car, has just 34,581 original miles, is
fully documented including Pontiac Historic Services paperwork and full
ownership history, and is loaded with more than $2800 in original factory
options, including A/C!
And nice this one is that inky black paint is orders of magnitude better
than any 1970s factory job, which it should be since the car was treated to
a show-quality repaint in 2008 by a shop that specializes in 1975-1981
Trans Ams. The gaps and panel alignment are excellent the decals, which are
EVERYWHERE on this car, are in outstanding condition.
The motivating force behind this famous ride is the 6.6 liter V8 under the
hood (that's a 400 to us old-school muscle car guys), and the
numbers-matching lump in this Poncho is as close to factory fresh as a car
can be after 34,000 miles. All the correct bits and pieces are there, from
the hoses and clamps to the air cleaner's fresh air hose. Notice the
factory A/C and GM Corporate Blue paint, total vintage 1977 equipment. It
starts and runs perfectly, although it's awfully quiet. I'm pretty sure the
sound effects in the movie weren't made by a stock Trans Am because it sure
sounded NASTY. I'm guessing this one is just a muffler upgrade away from a
full Bandit soundtrack if that's what you're into.
Behind the engine you'll find a genuine shift-it-yourself 4-speed manual.
The rest of the chassis is par for a 34,000 mile original clean and well
maintained, but not super-glossy like a restored piece. The Exhaust looks good, the brakes work properly,
and the machined snowflake wheels with gold inserts sport 225/70/15
BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Inside there's a tan interior in place of Burt's black upholstery, and I
think I like it better. First of all, black gets seriously hot when
cruising with the T-tops off and the sun is shining. And second, it's like
a black hole in there. The tan guts on this car are bright and airy and
contrast nicely with the black and gold exterior. Looking at the driver's
seat, there's just no question that this is a low-mileage piece; there's
not a fold or crease anywhere, the pedals show no wear, and the steering
wheel looks like new.
Customers ask us: if there was one car you would buy right now and hang
onto, what would it be? Here's our current reply: this 1977 Trans Am.
This car has all the right stuff (paperwork, original drive train, original
sheet metal, color, a 4-speed) that forms the basis for an investment grade
car. Most importantly, it is arguably the most desirable single model of
THE iconic car of the 70's generation.
