Beginning life in Van Nuys, California, this special edition Trans Am is
one of the rawest Pontiacs we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of
good maintenance and super low mileage, the car presents well enough to sit
proudly at the local show. A deep coat of correct Starlight Black
single-stage covers what appear to be 100% original body panels that are
straight, rock-solid and free of waves and major imperfections. Because
those panels have never been fully disassembled, they still display
factory-accurate gaps that are surprisingly tight. And, on top of that fit,
a fresh set of full outlining stripes perfectly complements a 2-tone 'turbo bird' hood decal.
Thanks to increasing emissions standards and the 1978 oil crisis, General
Motors had to seriously re-think its performance vehicles. That led to some
innovative and very creative powerplants. Under this Trans Am's turbo-specific hood you'll find a correct, 4.9
liter V8 that makes 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 better block
design, thicker gaskets, a mild camshaft, lower compression pistons, a
rolled fillet crank and an electronic spark controller in preparation for a
Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once that
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
Garrett blower is fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high
pressure oil pump and breathes through a unique, single-plane intake and turbo-specific Exhaust manifolds.
Behind that blown engine, a stalwart turbo-Hydramatic 350 sends power to a standard GM
10-bolt. At the ends of the car, an optional WS6 suspension, which includes
power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs,
combines with 4-wheel power disc brakes to provide quick stops and great
handling. And at the corners of the car, torque flows to the pavement
through gold turbo wheels, which spin
225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around correct 'gold bird' center caps..
The car's correct Camel Tan interior appears to be mostly original
equipment. Comfortable velour seats are nicely patterned pieces that feel
every bit as supple as they look. In front of those seats, an engine-turned
dash hangs crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and air
conditioning and a correct Delco-GM stereo. Below that dash, a correct
console frames correct power window switches behind a small GM shifter. And
in front of the driver, an attractive Formula steering wheel spins a black
rim around correct cruise control and an optional, tilting column.
With its cool engine, monochromatic interior and sparse original miles,
this has to be one of the most exclusive turbo Trans Am's on the planet! Call, click or

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.
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!
