You can probably bet the ultimate version of a famous sports car from a discontinued brand is going to be an expensive classic, right? Well, this nicely preserved 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA with low miles is the rare kind of coupe that's available at an obtainable price...for now.
The GTA was the pinnacle of Pontiac performance of the '80s. It could be optioned with an engine related to the Corvette, and it received the biggest tires, biggest brakes, and the best full body kit, including rear wing, to represent all-out performance. 1987 was the first year they offered the now-legendary GTA package, and so you want one this well preserved. This car has averaged under 1,400 miles annually, so that's a big indication of a well-respected life. This is reinforced by the Flame Red paint that shows all signs of being original and a high-gloss survivor. More than just the original paint, this has all the best original standout features looking great, including the full ground-effects, special GTA badging, big rear spoiler, and the original vented hood that always looks so aggressive. But when a GTA is at the car shows, you know everyone is focused on those cool factory crosslace gold wheels with the original Goodyear ZR50 tires.
Exceptionally low mileage also means little seat time, so the interior looks amazing. This tan package has a sophisticated look against the exterior deep red, and the full package is loaded direct from the factory. It starts with the new-style bucket seats that include electronic inflatable bolstering for extra comfort in all conditions. Plus, you have power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power steering, cruise control, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The driver gets the three-spoke steering wheel with the proper GTA-specific badging that looks absolutely sporty. And beyond that is the optional full digital dash package that's a rarely-seen feature that gives this Pontiac the kind of look that even make KITT jealous.
Another option everyone looks for in the GTA is the Corvette-derived 5.7-liter L98 motor. This fuel-injected V8 has been kept in original condition, and it's believed to be original to this low mileage car. GM's 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was a good paring because its stout nature can handle the power and torque produced by the upgraded engine. Plus, it's quick shifting nature and overdrive setup made it versatile for everything from street to highway use. But besides the drivetrain, the GTA was the king of the streets because it received the WS6 suspension. Sway bars front & rear, quick steering ratio, and four-wheel power disc brakes all meant that the GTA stayed on top of an enthusiast's wish lists through the '80s.
This is such a complete survivor that the original Goodyear tires even come with the sale! It's a highly original example of a head-turning classic offered for an obtainable price. So you know you need to hurry if you want to grab this deal. Call today!!!
