Classic Car Overview

1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - Final Year of the Second Generation Trans Am - Correct Nightwatch Blue Paint - Kentucky Car - Replaced 78 400 V8 Motor - T Tops (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, its possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Garage Kept Motors is pleased to present this southern Trans Am for consideration. 1981 was a historical year for Pontiac as it marked the final year of production of the beloved second generation Trans Am. The Bandit cars had come to an end. This example remains highly original and was originally owned in Kentucky. The car is finished in the original Code 29 Nightwatch Blue paint color with the iconic Screaming Chicken on the hood. Interior is Code 26N Dark Blue Deluxe Vinyl with Code A51 Bucket Seats and Code CC1 Fisher T-Top Roof. In 2012, the car came to Michigan and in February of 2020, the motor was replaced by a professionally rebuilt 1978 400 V8 with a mild cam. The car performs better than it did with the 301 and sits on the upgraded gray snowflake wheels. Has a brand new transmission build as well. A fun and iconic car that wont break the bank and is surely never to lose its value being the final year the second gen was made. Parts are also still readily available for these cars.
