Description
Lot #130 - With 265 original miles, the car presents as well today as when it drove off the showroom floor almost 32 years ago. Title represents mileage exempt. Seller represents original miles, and will provide a notarized, written affidavit to that effect. Under this Trans Am's turbo-specific hood you'll find an all original YL stamped and 301T branded turbocharged Pontiac 301 V8 which made substantially more twist than the mighty 6.6 Liter it replaced while being significantly more efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was beefed up with a better block design, thicker gaskets, lower compression pistons, a mild camshaft, a rolled fillet crank, a fully baffled oil pan, a unique single plane intake and an electronic spark controller in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9psi of boost and helped the reborn 301 achieve 236hp and a serious 345ft/lbs of torque. Behind that blown engine a stalwart, original Turbo Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission sends power to both the aforementioned GM 10-bolt rear end and standard WS6 handling package. Power flows to the pavement through pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel radials that are mounted to exclusive 15" turbo style, body matched aluminum wheels which feature slick machined edges and pristine plastic center caps. The cars all original, fully equipped Oyster interior features optional doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which create a sophisticated appearance that builds on the 1980 Trans Ams increasing list of luxury options. With its clean turbocharged motor, fantastic interior and low original miles, this has to be one of the nicest Trans Am Turbo Pace Cars available anywhere.
