Classic Car Overview
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this slick 1987 Pontiac Firebird. This Firebird had tons of upgrades and made into the perfect street performance toy. Looking at the exterior of this beast you instantly notice the clean base/clear coat black paint that was just completely redone about five years ago. The GTA style wing, hood scoop, and Weld Pro Star racing wheels give this car an aggressive look. Under the T-tops are an upgraded 4th generation Camaro cloth interior with power front and folding rear seating. When popping the hood on this Firebird, you will see the built-up 355 TPI V8 that is estimated at an impressive 450HP. Paired up to a rebuilt Borg-Warner T-5 manual transmission and pushed by a brand new professionally built Strange Engineering Dana60 rear end with a 4.56 ring and pinion. The spool in the rear is sure to launch you straight. It doesn t stop there; this rear-end has the best of the best with the custom HD axle package and heavy-duty bearings. Linking the transmission to the bulletproof rear is a chrome-moly custom length drive shaft with chrome-moly front and rear seamless welded yokes. The top/bottom-end of the engine is balanced, and blueprinted and professionally built. Many performance upgrades include Spohn torque-arm and fully adjustable drive support, SLP polished lower/upper intake, SLP polished oversized intake, Corvette HP Aluminum cylinder heads, Ferrara stainless steel intake and exhaust valves, Comp Cams valve springs and guide plates, Cloyes double roller timing chain, Melling high volume oil pump, March Billet pulley systems, and so much more.
