Description:

Remember when these were the kings of the street back in the ''80s? Nightly duels between F-bodies and the Mustang 5.0 were the beginning of a new muscle car era, and cars like this 1987 Trans Am were almost universally respected for not only their performance, but for their good looks, too. There was also a brief period when the fourth-generation Firebird was the most aerodynamic car made in America, but that''s kind of beside the point. The truth is, the sucker just looked great, with an aggressive long, low profile and hidden headlights that gave all of us who grew up in the ''80s a dream that we could afford. This one is a shockingly unmodified example that is very nicely preserved in its original blue-over-gray color scheme. The Trans Am got more aggressive lower body cladding, a deeper chin spoiler, and a special rear wing, all of which remain in good condition with no signs of accidents or even curb damage on the chin. 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. Special Trans Am markings, including the hood decal, also remain in great shape with no fading or peeling, and the Trans Am special taillights are crystal clear. The Trans Am was GM''s way of taking the F-body a little up-market, and the handsome gray interior is full of comfort and convenience options, not to mention a set of comfortable bucket seats. The light fabric is great for cruising with the T-tops off 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 (remember those?) and a graphic equalizer, and honestly, it sounds decent. Even the hatch area''s carpets are completely unmarked-nice! Power for this one comes from GM''s venerable 5.0 liter V8, also known as the LG4. As one of the last domestic cars with a 4-barrel carburetor, it was a throwback to the ''60s, but since tuning 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. It''s backed by a 4-speed automatic and a set of highway-friendly gears, so it is a very pleasant cruiser with a great snap of acceleration when you bury your foot. The Trans Am also offered better braking than its Ford competitor, and the 15-inch alloys are uniquely Pontiac. Untouched F-bodies this nice are either 0-mile museum pieces or have already turned into something else. Consider this one a blank canvas, and let your imagination roam. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
