Description
Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this absolutely gorgeous 1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. If you're a Trans Am enthusiast, the 1989 Turbo Trans Am pace car really is the one to own, this is "20th Anniversary Turbo Indianapolis 500 Pace Car edition #841 of only 1,555 built" It's still the fastest-accelerating T/A ever built, 89,412 original miles, is one of the cleanest, most documented examples available. This might be the most subtle GM pace car ever, but what it .....
lacked in graphics it more than made up for in horsepower. The third-generation F-bodies were pretty good-looking cars, particularly the Trans Am, and all the unique styling aspects are extremely well-preserved given the tendency for the plastic trim to crack. The paint is as good as you could expect on the showroom floor, thanks to a lifetime as a cherished collector's item, and this is one of the few that proudly wears its original pace car decals. Functional vents on the hood and a subtle TURBO badge on the front fenders are your only tip-off that this is a special car. A tan leather interior was actually an optional upgrade on these cars, which came with the tan cloth as standard equipment. The deeply bolstered buckets are still incredibly comfortable even after 25 years and show minimal wear. The leather interior and T-tops were the only options, so things like power windows and locks, A/C, cruise control, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo were all standard. Although the steering wheel and factory radio were replaced, we do have the original to be sold with the car. The trunk is like new and outfitted with original bags for the T-tops, because this car has every available option. The real reason these cars are special is under the hood: Buick's stunning 3.8-liter turbocharged V6. Pontiac rated it at 250 horsepower to keep from stepping on Corvette's toes, but the GM factory dyno rang up 301 horsepower on a pretty consistent basis. And as insanely easy as the turbo engine is to modify, this one remains completely stock and nicely preserved. She will really get up and go. A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 1LE brake and WS6 handling package make this a formidable car even when the roads start to twist, neatly remedying the Buick GNs lone Achilles heel. You want a fast F-body, they don't come much better than this and the turbo V6 engine offers almost unlimited potential. This one is completely stock and incredibly original, right down to the gold mesh-style alloy wheels. The owner has had a lot of work done to this car such as new shocks, subframe connectors, new carpet throughout the car, new sound deadener (dynamat), new correct AC compressor and R134A conversion, 4 wheel alignment, new Delco radio with mp3 player, new fiberglass rear wing spoiler, power antenna replaced, new hood liner, new headlight motors, new motor mounts, new transmission, new torque converter, new spark plugs wires, new rear hatch motor, new leather steering wheel, shifter, E-break handle new fuel pump, exhaust, fuel injectors and so much more. We have receipts for all the work done with a Carfax and much more information in a detailed book that goes with the car. This is a really well documented and maintained vehicle.
