1984 trans am15th Speciality and rarity are the two traits that buyers yearn for in a performance car. Back in 1984, uyers who wanted the most distinctive and rare new performance car that America had to offer didn't have to look any further than the 1984 Pontiac Trans Am 15th Anniversary Edition. With only 1,500 produced and a unique exterior color scheme, nyone with a half of brain knew this was no ordinary Trans Am but one destined to be a future collectible. Driving a 15th Anniversary Trans Am back then let everyone know that you were part of a special club. It was the most expensive and exclusive Trans Am back in 1984. Even a mint conditioned 1969 Trans Am, 1973-1974 Trans Am Super Duty 455, nd every other previously produced Trans Am back in 1984 were all less expensive than the $17,500 (window) sticker price of the 15th Anniversary Trans Am. In other words back in 1984, here was not another Trans Am that was worth more or cost more than it. So for a Trans Am fan back in 1984 this was the Trans Am to own.
Of course with low production making these cars in such short supply, ou can imagine many buyers paid more than sticker price to get their hands on one. The game was a simple one that some Pontiac dealers had learned back in 1979 with the wildly successful 10th Anniversary Trans Am -- that all they needed to do was put the special edition car on the dealership floor and slap a dealer markup price of a few thousand dollars over sticker price and then wait until a buyer who was willing to pay the big markup arrived. And this system worked for these special edition Trans Ams since a buyer would always emerge who paid what the dealership demanded. Even if you found a dealership that wouldn't markup a special edition Trans Am, here was always some shrewd buyer who would buy one for around sticker price (and not title it) and then flip it for a quick profit of a few thousand dollars. And for the 15th Anniversary Trans Am this was also the case. In other words what this meant is that 15th anniversary buyers back in 1984 really wanted this car and jumped through hoops of fire to get one. You'll never hear a story about a buyer back in 1984 stumbling into a Pontiac dealership and buying one on a whim. Any normal buyer who may have even been smitten with the 15th Anniversary after accidentally stumbling across one, ould balk at the high markup price and would thereby usually get the dealer sales pitch how he or she could get a better deal on another Trans Am just like it. And this wasn't such a bad thing since many buyers drove away happy in a 1984 Trans Am that was purchased for a lot less than the 15th Anniversary with many of the same options -- 55,374 buyers to be exact bought regular Trans Ams for the 1984 model year. There was also a limited edition 1984 Trans Am Recaro Edition which was a black and gold Trans Am with Recaro seats -- a low production special edition Trans Am that numbered only 1,321 units. And when you add these 1,321 Recaro Trans Ams and the 1,500 15th Anniversary Trans Ams to the final Trans Am tally, rans Am production totaled 58,195 which made 1984 the best sales year for the third generation (1982-1992) Trans Am.
These were good times at Pontiac, ts marketing team was using the sales slogan "We Build Excitement" to lure buyers into its dealerships. And when the buyers arrived at a dealership, here were plenty of different sporty and performance oriented models for customers with diverse tastes. Even in 1984, he Trans Am still lived up to its reputation providing some of the best styling, erformance, nd handling you were going to find in an American car. The third generation Trans Am had been a big success when it was released in 1982, nd even by 1984 styling was still new enough to keep buyers happy. Starting in 1984 on the Trans Am there was a spoiler package which consisted of a lower body front air dam, ide skirts, nd front plates to cover up the twin grille openings (all these items were first seen on the 1983 Trans Am Daytona Pace Car Edition). The 15th Anniversary was standard with the side skirts, ront air dam, nd grille plates. However unlike the standard Trans Am which had the air dam, ide skirts, nd grille plate colored black or gold contrasting the main exterior color -- the 15th Anniversary had all these pieces painted white to match the white exterior color which was the only color available for this special edition Trans Am. The 15th anniversary Trans Am was a glimpse of the new fad which would soon take performance cars by storm -- having the exterior painted in one single color and this included most or all exterior trim pieces. In the 15th Anniversary's case, ven the smoked-out rear taillights were outlined in white (unlike the standard Trans Am) along with the side mirrors and rear spoiler (which were both painted black on the standard Trans Am).
However this wasn't merely a white special edition Trans Am, t was one that payed the ultimate tribute to the first year low production 1969 Trans Am which was only available with a white exterior color accented with blue stripes. The 15th Anniversary also had blue stripes and decals (which included large blue "Trans Am" decal callouts). Most decorative of these, as the big hood stripe that covered the entire hood scoop which included as it's main attraction a modern rendition of the Trans Am bird.
A set of sporty white 16 x 8 inch aluminum wheels were standard with the 15th Anniversary package. Not only did these wheels give the Trans Am a sporty look, hey also helped handling by being accompanied by sticky and wide P245-50VR16 Goodyear Gatorback performance tires. Worth noting, hese Goodyear Gatorback tires were "VR" speed rated which meant they were safely able to drive for long periods, peeds in excess of 130 mph. No other 1984 Trans Am could be equipped with VR rated tires. The 15th Anniversary was also the only 1984 Trans Am that could be ordered with 16 inch wheels, he Recaro and regular Trans Am were stuck with 15×7 inch wheels with much narrower P215-65R15 Goodyear Eagle GT tires. The 15th anniversary also was standard with the WS6 handling package which along with the 16 inch wheels and wide tires yielded a very impressive .87 g on the skidpad as tested by Motor Trend magazine (July 1984). This made the Trans Am back in 1984 one of the best handling cars in the world. The WS6 package included four wheel disc brakes which helped the 15th Anniversary Trans Am stop from 60-0 mph in a lightning quick 130 feet as tested by Motor Trend (July 1984).

I just wanted to answer a few questions. The hood has chips on the front and a few around the car. As you can see in the pictures the blue striping is missing a little bit on the hood and aroundthe car. The white body molding has shrunk a little and is missing a piece, asy to buy.Very Sharp looking car that alwaysdraws attention and is very reliable! Only 1500 Made still super rare! Lowered the reserve and will go to highest bidder!
