Classic Car Overview

This 1980 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is one of the rare years of the turbocharged V8. So while youll love the T-tops, extra features, and highly original red-on-red style, you know its the idea of having a rare bird with a numbers-matching turbo heart that is most appealing. The Turbo Trans Ams are a rarity that were only around for a couple of years. They carry the same pieces of all the best T/As, like the wide body kit, fender vents, and integrated rear spoiler. But they also have some unique elements. For example, its easy to identify them because of the special wheel design that was only shared with the 10th anniversary cars. And these shining alloys are especially easy to see against a car with such vibrant color. The code-72 Francisco Red is believed to be the factory application. While its unknown if the odometer represents the cars full mileage, it does show a level of care in its completeness that is desirable after more than four decades. You may give it a professional detail to really make it pop at the car shows, and we can understand why. This one is ready to be shown off a new graphics package that brings added attention to the iconic hood bird. And its extra cool how it breathes its fire right over the special offset hood dome thats a hallmark of these turbo cars. So it all makes for a very stock-style package on a distinct classic. The interior is a highly stock setup that looks terrific. We especially like the hobnail pattern on the cloth seats. Not only is it a classic Pontiac piece, but fabric means its much nicer to hop in on a sunny day. After all, this is a T-top coupe. They are a great factory feature, and the factory storage bags are just another clue to the level of care that has gone into this car over the years. There are great features, like power windows, an armrest center console, a tilt steering column, and the full gauges w/tach and clock combo. This also has a few well-integrated upgrades like power locks, the Kenwood AM/FM digital stereo w/cassette, and the factory air conditioning which has been converted to modern R134a (but will need servicing to blow cold again.) And while the full red package has an aggressive attitude, its only heightened by Pontiacs machine-turned panels around the shifter and dash. Lift the hood for a very unique presentation. The 4.9-liter turbocharged V8 motor can be instantly identified in this setup with the offset air topper that makes room for the turbocharger. On a car so well preserved thus far, youll be glad to know that this very correct-looking engine bay also contains the original 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, Trans Ams are fun to drive thanks to good handling. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and youve got a terrific total cruising package. This is the full-red T/A with a rare turbo heart. It makes for a highly original and highly desirable presentation that you know you need to get your hand on right now. Call today!!!
