It's not just that you're looking at a rare and desirable first-year 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA. It's also that this one happens to have everything you want, like T-tops, a cool color combo, and the ultra-cool digital dash. And this well-priced modern classic has even been recently restored, including rebuilt fuel-injected V8 power.
Flame Red was pretty much the color that defined these GTA cars. After all, it gives you the boldness or a cherry-like hue, but in a deeper and more sophisticated tone. So it's especially nice to find an example that was given a high-quality respray of this factory-correct color. The modern clearcoat luster really does a terrific job of highlighting the well-creased look of this special Pontiac. And Flame Red also does a great job of bringing out the added style of the golden touches on the GTA badging and hallmark crosslace alloy wheels. The total package really does have a terrific performance look with the full body kit, vented hood, and well-integrated rear spoiler.
They also made the right investments inside to keep this GTA looking and feeling fresh. The GTA was the debut of the Ultima bucket seats that have inflatable bolstering for the best in comfort. Because this was the top-of-the-line car for Pontiac, it comes loaded with features like power windows, power locks, power steering, remote trunk opener, and cruise control. And because the T-tops will make you want to share this experience with the world, you'll be glad the air conditioning was upgraded to modern R134a to blow nice and cold. The driver gets the three-spoke steering wheel with the proper GTA-specific badging that looks absolutely sporty. Beyond that is the rarely-seen full digital dash option. While the gauges are retro-future, the AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input fits with the dash's digital theme while offering truly modern music.
These third-generation T/As are especially desirable for what's under the hood. After all, we all love a classic that also includes a fuel-injected V8. The 305 cubic-inch powerplant is believe to be original to the car, and even better, it was given a full rebuild. In fact, it's so fresh that it has about a year left on the warranty. GM's 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was a good paring because its stout enough to handle the power and torque while also smoothly getting you into overdrive comfort. The GTA was the king of the streets because it received the WS6 suspension as standard. This includes sway bars front & rear, special shock absorbers, performance coil springs, and a limited-slip rear end. Those upgrades made the WS6-equipped Pontiac one of the best handing domestic sports cars of the day.
The sale come complete with the build receipts and the owner's manual. This is a great classic Pontiac that has been given terrific recent investments, and yet, it's still offered for an affordable price. Don't miss this deal. Call now!
