We love the Special Editions T/As, and the trim tag tells us this 1980 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is an Ohio-built WS4 car. So when you have bold gold, T-tops, a loaded interior, a numbers-matching V8, and a speedy sense of style, you know this is an awesome T/A.
There's something very distinctive about the factory-correct Solar Gold. It created one of the coolest coordinating packages around when combined with the darker gold hood bird and golden snowflake alloy wheels. So it was sort of like a custom car straight from the factory. This one amps up the appeal because there was a good respray later in life and they've made sure everything looks correct, right down to the decals. Plus, the widebody appearance is pure aggression - the headlights are individually separated; there are large flares for each fender; and the spoiler covers the rear from end-to-end. And everyone loves the attitude that comes from the side scoops and the shaker hood.
Pontiac's hobnail cloth interior is just as famous on this generation as houndstooth was for the first-gen Camaro. So we love that you can take the T-tops out and share it all with the world. This is meant to be a driver's car, and so everything looks good for the kind of car you let everyone hop in on a whim and go for a drive. And you'll also love how it's loaded with features like power windows, power locks, electric rear defrost, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And you'll love getting in the driver's seat and facing iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel, cool machined aluminum dash, and full gauge package with large speedo and tach.
The 301 cubic-inch V8 is numbers-matching to the car, and it has an authentic appearance right down to the decals. And while the shaker hood might only be a display piece on this model year, Pontiac knew it was just too cool not to have on the T/A. The tidy appearance suggests proper respect. You'll even spot newer items like a newer alternator and newer back half of the exhaust. It's a strong runner and a good cruiser. So you can appreciate features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission, and sway bars front & rear. It makes for quite a solid driver.
This is the true Special Edition golden Trans Am that has plenty of classic features and a terrific driving attitude. So don't miss your chance, call today!
