The car runs fine and has no problems passing inspection. Always starts right up. After putting in to gear it will one time act like it wants to die. After 1 rev it straightens outs. Never has any issues at long lights or stop and go traffic. New 700r4 transmission did have one issue and I took it to a place to get it fixed. Catches all gears fine now. I believe the rear defroster doesn't work, ood struts could use a replacement ($30) and ac doesn't blow cold (probably needs recharged). Odometer reads 107k but it had problems a while back and was swapped for a working one. Actual mileage is 169k. It shows odometer exempt on the title (due to age). The dash panel has a crack in the middle. One slight dent on the driver's side fender. The paint looks fine there so it can probably be paintless dent removed. Horn is wired to a push button on the dash. There's a few scratches on driver's side window, nd some ground affects could use a tighter seal. Also doors sometimes require a hard push, ut they always close fine. That's the only minuses I can think of. Headlights pop right up, ipers work, ll lights and gauges work... feel free to ask any questions!
In 1989 The Trans Am GTA was faster than a Mustang GT and Camaro Iroc and much better looking in my opinion. It was also the fastest USA production car of 1989 and the last year it was used at Indy although that was the V6 Turbo one. It was Also the 20th Anniversary of Trans Am. It has the same L98 Engine used in the C4 Corvettes and it runs strong.
Car comes with several extras (stock manifolds, eftover paint (with the paint code), riginal stereo, riginal speakers, eceipts on work done to it, aynes repair manual and other miscellaneous.Also including a DuPont Car Cover with it. Between that cover and my parent's garage, he car has never seen snow or rain since restoring.
In 4 years time of owning, have put about 15k in to this car. I have family problems though and it needs to be sold, efinitely not a want. Always gets a lot of attention at shows. It's rare to find a third generation f-body in this good of shape.
Please note my acceptances of pay and that you are responsible for pickup/shipping. The car is sold As-is. Thanks for looking
