1988 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
Zoom icon


HIGHLIGHTS: This is a unique rad-era performance car suited to the needs of anybody looking for a little automotive excitement when behind the wheel of a unique car. This car packs plenty American-Made homegrown horsepower under the hood thanks to a 5.7L Fuel-Injected V8. Not only is this car's styling very indicative of the trends of the '80s, it has an easily recognizable look that is very distinct compared even to its Chevrolet counterpart.

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Pontiac is as nice as one would expect a car with 66,000 miles to be. This car has been driven as a fun/toy vehicle, and escaped abuse by being stored for quite a while. It is clear this car has not been used and abused and has truly been cared for.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint is just as nice as the body it is wrapped around! This car has been repainted, and appears to have seen very little use since it was done. It is very slick and glossy paint! Something about the white really makes this Firebird pop. .

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior condition is very nice for a domestic car of this era. The gray cloth is a great choice against the white paint. Almost surprisingly, the interior soft goods and hard plastics are all intact. All of that glorious late 20-th-century technology is still functional too! The digital dash and instruments are functioning properly and are simply too cool. Even the digital odometer readout is operating correctly!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: This Pontiac runs smoothly and has a subtle, but menacing exhaust note. It sounds great and has just enough rumble. It drives and handles American muscle car from the 1980s. And boy is it a blast to drive! Plus, this car has the sought-after WS6 suspension package.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: This car embodies everything the American performance car market was chasing during the time period in which it was built. If you want a car that will capture what GM was during the late 1980s, this is the car for you.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're not interested in anything past the 1970s being a “classic” or “collectible,” this puppy won't do it for you.


WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone who can appreciate the end of an era for American muscle cars--or the beginning of a new one--will want this car. If you were a teenager in the 1980s, this car should be especially interesting to you! Additionally, if you like Knight Rider, there should certainly be some kind of appeal.
