Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This modified 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am receives power from a 555ci big-block V8 mated to a T400 three-speed automatic transmission equipped with a manual valve body. Hardware includes power brakes and steering, a Holley carburetor, Brodix aluminum heads, MSD ignition components, and 17-inch Foose wheels. Finished in a three-stage candy apple red over a black fabric interior with racing bucket seats and safety harnesses, this second-generation Trans Am is now offered by the selling dealer with a clean CARFAX report and a clear New York title.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

The exterior was overhauled and recoated in three-stage candy apple red under prior ownership. The height-adjustable hood has a silver Firebird along with retention pins and a cutout for the shaker hood scoop. Features include pinstriping, a color-keyed chin spoiler, fender flares, sport mirror caps, a full-width taillight panel, and a three-piece rear spoiler.

EXTERIOR – WHEELS AND TIRES

Glossy black 17-inch Foose wheels are wrapped in 235/55 tires.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The cockpit is fitted with black cloth racing bucket seats up front, a pair of black fabric seats in the rear, and matching materials for the door panels, dash, and carpeting. Amenities include Tanaka safety harnesses, a center console, engine-turned aluminum dash trim, and a modern stereo. The trunk contains the equipment for a nitrous oxide system.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

Instrumentation includes a 90-mph speedometer, a 6K-rpm tachometer, an inset analog clock, and auxiliary gauges for the air/fuel ratio, fuel level, voltage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 23,201 miles, but the true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

The engine started as a 502ci block and was bored and stroked into a 555ci big-block V8. Added performance equipment includes a forged rotating assembly, a solid roller camshaft, Brodix aluminum heads, a Holley 950-cfm carburetor, an electric fuel pump, an MSD ignition system with a timing controller, dual electric fans, and March Performance pulleys. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a console-shifted three-speed T400 automatic transmission with a manual valve body, a 3,700-rpm stall converter, and a 3.08:1 rear end with hardened axles.

UNDERCARRIAGE

The front hubs and disc brakes were sourced from a fifth-generation Chevrolet Corvette. Steering is power-assisted. Stopping is performed by power brakes.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

This Trans Am previously appeared on AutoHunter in February 2023, but it is being relisted at a lower reserve price than before. The CARFAX report shows an accident-free vehicle history in New York. A $175 dealer fee will be added to the final sale price. The selling dealer requires a $2,000 deposit within 24 hours of winning the vehicle auction.
