1985 Pontiac Firebird All Trim on Vehicle
1985 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - This car is a true survivor! It has lived its entire life in the dry climate of Tri-Cities, WA, thus there is absolutely ZERO rust. This one is shockingly unmodified and has only 65,000 miles on her. And in all truth, she has been stored as a collectors item since 1992, thus only 10,000 miles have been put on since 1992! She is very nicely preserved in its original two tone gray color scheme. The Trans Am got more aggressive lower body cladding, a deeper chin spoiler, and a modest rear wing, all of which remain in excellent condition with no signs of accidents or even curb damage. GM's paint quality was spotty at best in the '80s, but this one still wears its factory-applied paint and it looks quite good for being 25 years old and the decals in particular are especially well-preserved. There are 6 or 7 chips on the car all of which are smaller than a dime and NONE of them have signs of rust or discoloration. She will come with the original aluminum sun visor for the rear window as seen in the pictures. you will need to locate 1-2 of the brackets that are missing to put this back on though. All gauges, collapsing headlights, cruise control, heater, A/C, radio ETC all work. The fuse controlling the door locks, interior lights, horn, and radio has been removed and set in the ash tray as the automatic antenna recoiling system has gone bad, thus if the fuse is in, the auto antenna continuously tries to operate. (I an have this replaced before purchase if desired). Since the car has not been driven for so long, she may need a refill on the A/C coolant. You will additionally notice the immaculate condition of the interior. All fabric has ZERO damage and the dash and glass all around have ZERO damage. This beauty has never been smoked in either. This particular car was also equipped with the performance suspension package or (WS6) package which was not even an option until 1986! The Trans Am was GM's way of taking the F-body a little up-market, and the handsome two-tone gray cloth interior is full of comfort and convenience options, not to mention a set of comfortable bucket seats. The light fabric is great for cruising because it doesn't get hot like leather does, and it's grippy, so the seats hold you in place during aggressive driving. There's minimal wear, especially considering the age and mileage, and even the door panels and carpets remain in very good condition. All the gauges work properly, the A/C blows cold, and the original stereo still offers an auto-reverse cassette deck. Power for this one comes from GM's venerable 5.0 liter V8, one of the first to be fitted with GM's famous Tuned Port Injection system. Since more horsepower was little more than a phone call away, it's remarkable that this one is still 100% stock. It runs beautifully, with a crisp burble from the exhaust and the torque that made these engines famous. This car has just received new spark plugs and she will start up dead cold in the middle of winter without any struggle. The motor is backed by a 4-speed automatic and a set of highway-friendly 2.73 gears, so it is a very pleasant cruiser with a great snap of acceleration when you bury your foot. The factory exhaust has been upgraded with a straight pipe and the deletion of the catalytic converter, but otherwise the underside is very stock and extremely clean. 15-inch alloys are uniquely Pontiac and carry 235/60/15 Goodyear Eagle performance tires with a lot of life left in them. Untouched F-bodies this nice are either 0-mile museum pieces, abused rattle traps, or have already turned into something else. Consider this one a blank canvas or an investment in your past, and let your imagination roam. Call today!
