Vehicle Description

1981 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am 4.9L WS6 with T-Tops and 4 wheel disk brakes.  1981 was the final year of the second generation body style made famous in the “Smokey & the Bandit" movies.  This beautiful iconic muscle car has had a complete restoration from stem to stern about 3,200 miles ago and looks absolutely fantastic.  The vehicle has just over 92K original miles on the chassis and original numbers matching powertrain.  The body is laser straight and the doors align and close without any sag.  The deep black paint is show quality and pops in the sunlight with a touch of gold metallic.  The motor was completely gone through and everything was either replaced or restored.  This car has no exhaust, fluid, or oil leaks.  Every gasket and seal is new to include BOP's Viton 1 piece rear main seal and oil pan gasket.  All of the hoses, fuel, and vacuum lines have been replaced.  The motor has a new radiator, 180 degree thermostat, as well as new alternator, water, fuel, power steering, and oil pumps.  The motor is run with 6 quarts of Amsoil ZROD fully synthetic oil with zinc to help keep the temps down and the turbo from cooking.  The car wears all new brakes to include a new booster, calipers, discs, pads, and brake lines.  The suspension is completely new and includes shocks, struts, springs, and bushings.  The original turbo wheels were completely restored and wear new BF Goodrich 245/60R15 white letter radials all the way around.  The TH350 transmission was completely rebuilt along with the original performance ratchet shifter.  A Hurst racing solid shift cable was added and the transmission provides firm, positive shifts.  The rear end maintains its original 3:08 gear set and was inspected and given new gear case lube prior to being powder-coated.  A new fuel tank was installed and strapped up to a freshly undercoated bottom.  A 2.5" downpipe was attached to the turbo which connects to a custom 2.5" Borla XR-1 Multicore exhaust with dual 2.5" tips.  The car sounds fantastic and has no cabin drone whatsoever.  The factory quadrajet carburetor was sent to Cliff's for a performance rebuild and was given the proper components to run modern fuel and modified to allow the secondary doors to fully open.  A new K&N filter rests inside the air cleaner and the cold air ductwork has all been updated with new fittings and properly connected to the air snorkel in the fender well.  The turbo was given a performance rebuild and ceramic coating by renowned turbo builder G-Pop shop.  The car is currently dialed in at about 12 lbs. of boost and runs very well.  A boost controller has been placed into the turbo to wastegate line allowing the owner to easily adjust the boost level.  The Turbo Charge Boost lights all work and light up in sequence as they should.  The dash was sent out for restoration as was the gold gauge bezel and shifter plate.  The black vinyl interior is all new to include front and rear seat covers, door panels, and trim.  The carpets and vinyl mats are also new.  A boost gauge has been added onto the lower console in front of the shifter.  Double sided adhesive was used in order to avoid having to drill holes.  The factory radio was upgraded with a modern board making the system blue-tooth compatible while providing the driver with an in-dash microphone and USB port.  Kenwood speakers were added to deliver quality sound.
