Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this wonderful 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Edition for sale in our St. Louis showroom. During the last two years of its run, Pontiac offered a special engine and appearance package known as the Turbo Trans Am. Due to the increasing emissions restrictions, Pontiac dropped all its large displacement engines, including the venerable 400 CID V8 following the 1979 model year. Along with a conventional 305 CID small-block V8, .....
Pontiac offered the first forced induction production engine, a turbo charged 301 V8 in 1980-81. The 4.9L Turbo was unique in that it had a stronger block with thicker cylinder walls and a lower compression ratio given the increased pressure created by the turbo system. Also included were newly developed internals including forged pistons, high pressure oil pump, a roller fillet crankshaft with 2 counterbalances, fully baffled oil pan and turbo specific exhaust manifolds. The 301 Turbo was officially factory rated at 210hp and 345lb ft of torque and mated to a TH350 automatic transmission and 3.08 Posi rear end. In 1980, Johnny Rutherford won his 3rd Indianapolis 500, a race that featured the 1980 Turbo Trans Am as the Official Pace Car. This beautiful limited-edition model shows its original Cameo White exterior and Oyster White interior finishes and the owner states 15,505 original miles! The numbers matching vehicle includes T-Tops, AM/FM Stereo Cassette, Power Locks, Power Windows, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Power Brakes, Seat Belts, Cloth and Vinyl Interior, Aluminum Alloy Wheels, and ice-cold AC.
