This is not your average Trans Am. No, this 1980 WS6 has a lot more power, a vastly improved suspension, and an incredible show-quality paint job that makes the already flashy T/A look downright sinister. If you''re tired of the Burt Reynolds jokes this car will make that happen, because it''s just plain nasty and does it without the gaudy graphics. Nothing looks better on a second-gen Firebird than black, but to get your car to look this good is going to take a giant pile of money and about a year of your life. The guys who built this car were instructed to cut no corners in building a car that would wow show crowds and stand up to the closest scrutiny, so they put in a lot of late nights to make this the blackest black Trans Am you''ve ever seen. The bodywork is perhaps the straightest we''ve ever seen, which is saying something on a black car, which shows off every flaw. The two-stage urethane paint is deep enough to drown in and shiny enough to be visible from space. Then there''s the fact that they left off all the decals and instead let the sleek shape speak for itself, and what you discover is that this is one heck of a good-looking car when you''re not distracted by gold chickens. In fact, that''s not a single identifying mark anywhere on the car save for the Pontiac chevron on the nose. Blacked-out taillights, T-tops, and the sleek urethane nose are all the identifiers you need in a car like this. The all-new interior is simply stunning, a dramatic makeover that one-ups the original in terms of functionality and style. The color is called "shale" and was borrowed from the 2003 Corvette anniversary cars and looks spectacular in the black Trans Am. Obviously everything is new, from the seat covers to the door panels with molded-in speakers, to the custom-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel. Loaded with accessories such as power windows, A/C, and a tilt column, it''s a no-compromises cruiser that looks like a million bucks. Finish quality is exemplary and it''s barely been driven since it was completed so everything is super fresh. The original gauge are crisp and bright, the center console has been re-covered in matching upholstery, and a new AM/FM/CD stereo gives it a 21st century entertainment system. Pull the T-tops and have some fun, because this car was built to rock. Even the trunk is finished to show standards, so there''s truly nothing to hide on this car. The 400 inch mill under the hood is 100% Pontiac and is upgraded with goodies like 455 heads and a mild camshaft that gives it a nice cackle at speed. It''s detailed nicely with mostly a stock look, but those big Pontiac valve covers certainly stand out. It''s bolted to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission that''s been built to handle the rigors of the gnarly big block and the original 10-bolt rear hangs in back on lowered springs. A custom dual exhaust system sounds spectacular and the suspension has been lowered all around to give this particular Trans Am a decidedly predatory look. Ultra-trick 17-inch "snowflake" alloys replicate the originals with modern 255/45/17 rubber that vastly improves handling. This is an extremely impressive car in every single possible way, everything is brand new and this car has only been broken in since the top quality restoration was completed in 2013. There''s simple no way to duplicate this car at this price and if you''re tired of the jokes about these cars, this one will end them once and for all. Call today!
