1980 Pontiac Trans Am Bill Mitchell Concept

If you're Bill Mitchell, rguably one of the most influential GM aftermarket tuners of all time, nd you get hold of a 1980 Trans Am, hat would you do? This incredible 1980 Trans Am is the answer to that question, oasting a long list of functional and cosmetic upgrades specified by Mr. Mitchell himself and only 9k actual miles, aking this car far more than your average black Bandit.Being able to dip into the world's largest automaker's parts bin is a fantastic advantage and the result was perhaps the most amazing semi-factory second-gen F-body ever built. This rare car has had four owners who all cherished it like it was something truly remarkable, nd while it has been lightly modified over the years (including those gorgeous oversized wheels), veryone has been very careful to respect its original specs. The incredible Starlight Black paint was recently applied at a cost of over $10,000, nd we've never seen paint so deep and dark on a Trans Am before; this might very well be the best black paint job we've ever seen. Most of the Pontiac's overbearing gold decals were deleted at Bill Mitchell's shop in 1980, ave for some highlights around the bumper and on the hood scoop, o it looks very sinister prowling the streets and must have blown people away back in the day. A slightly deeper air dam helps with the long, ow, ide look, nd impeccable fit and finish make it stand out regardless of the mods. This car is extremely impressive.The interior got a fairly comprehensive makeover at Mitchell's direction, ncluding upgraded gauges and a special emblem on the center console, nd it's all original in this car. This Poncho comes loaded with options, oo, ncluding power windows and locks, /C, nd a tilt wheel, nd it's all in fantastic condition. Tan upholstery contrasts nicely with the black paint and all the traditional Firebird styling cues are there, ncluding an engine-turned dashboard and three-spoke steering wheel. The state of preservation is truly remarkable, gain indicative of the care this car has received over the years. Most notable, erhaps, s the Hurst cue ball shifter, hich is tied to a Doug Nash 5-speed manual transmission, hich was the biggest single modification to the Bill Mitchell Concept and truly transforms the driving experience. The trunk is also correctly outfitted with a factory mat and full-sized spare tire with cover.Bill Mitchell also specified a fire-breathing 400 cubic inch engine, hich is based on a service replacement block and gently modified to generate about 300 real-world horsepower. The engine bay is quite authentic-looking, rom the big air scoop up top to the Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block, lthough a set of ceramic-coated long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers were added along the way. The suspension features various tweaks to make this Trans Am a 4-seat Corvette hunter and the aforementioned close-ratio 5-speed powers a 10-bolt rear with 3.08 gears on a limited slip. Bill Mitchell also specified a set of gorgeous BBS alloy wheels to replace the factory snowflakes, nd they are included with the car, lthough it currently wears gorgeous 17-inch snowflake reproductions with fat Kumho rubber.Documented with actual mileage, HS paperwork, window sticker, ooks, anuals, rochures, nd other critical paperwork, his amazing Trans Am is not only spectacular to drive, t's also a fantastic part of Pontiac history.
