Description
Lot #109 - This low mileage (42,600 actual miles) roadster is a very rare and unique automobile. Of the 44,028 Firebird Trans Ams built in 1985, there were less than 250 roadsters made, this car being production #103. The conversions on these cars were done by a company called Auto Forms Engineering out of Elkhart, Indiana, and were explicitly sanctioned by General Motors. They could only be ordered through Pontiac dealers and only delivered back to Pontiac dealers. Customers paid up to $14,000 for this convertible option, a considerable sum in 1985 for an option, which perhaps explains why so few of them were made. The transformations done on these cars turned what was already a visually stunning car into a truly timeless work of art. Its low, clean lines combined with the two humps on its massive rear deck will always make these cars instant head-turners and valuable pieces in anyone's collection. Records on this particular car show that it spent its entire life, so to speak, within a 45 mile radius of where it was purchased in Oswego, IL. Maybe that explains why it only has 42,600 original miles on it. Factory equipment on this car includes Macpherson strut suspension, power steering, power front disc brakes, rear deck spoiler, full gauges, sport mirrors, reclining bucket seats, Rally-tuned suspension, front fender extractors, Aero ground effects package and hood louvers. Additional options include power door locks, tinted soft-ray glass, luxury trim group, cont. cycle windshield wipers, air conditioning, power remote mirrors, cruise control and the LG 4.5 Liter V8 with automatic overdrive transmission. The factory Delco radio has been replaced with a Kenwood stereo system that is MP3 capable, Sirius Radio ready and has 300 watts of power driving three strategically placed speakers behind each seat allowing for total clarity of sound while driving with the top down. The design of the convertible top is a tribute to someone in the conversion department with vision. Instead of a standard softtop that flaps and bulges up with you're going down the highway, this top is comprise of two layers of fiberglass sandwiched together with a cloth headliner that matches the seats. This design results in a much quieter and more secure ride when driving with the top up. I purchased the car August 27, 2007 in Illinois and drove it home to San Diego. The steering is tight and tracked very well on the highway. It did not burn one drop of oil the entire 2,100 miles and got 24 mpg. The transmission shifted smoothly and firmly through all the gears. I have since had the carburetor rebuilt and a new catalytic converter installed to satisfy California emissions standards. It was smogged on September 11, 2007. Is this car in perfect condition? No. Would it be any more fun to drive or be seen if it were? No way.
