vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1981 Trans Am in excellent survivor condition and priced to sell with only 18,780 original miles. This Trans Am is in great original condition featuring a beautiful stock interior, excellent paint with original decals, a numbers matching drive line with extremely low original miles, WS6 performance package, F41 Suspension, and lots of original documentation authenticating this wonderful TA. It looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Trans Am that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the Trans Am market continues to be on the rise. This Trans Am is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Dark Blue Metallic over Dark Blue deluxe Pimloco cloth interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below and two original build sheets. The extremely low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the accompanying documentation and the clear Ohio title, pictured below, stating the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and other information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this Trans Am really is.

Please note that this Trans Am is "numbers matching." That means that all of codes, dates, and stamping are original or correct for the car and in correct chronological order. In terms of value this is a very important factor and will become more vital in the years to come as the car gets older. Most importantly the engine is original to the car. The last six digits of the VIN, 108611, are stamped on the engine block and pictured below indicating that this is the original engine that was installed in the car brand new at the factory. The full stamping is "2BN108611" and "2" indicates the Pontiac division of GM, the "B" is the model year, 1981, and the "L" is the plant where the car was produced, Van Nuys, CA. All of the trim and paint codes are also correct for the car.

This Trans Am comes with a TON of original documentation including the original order form from Don Ayres Pontiac in Fort Wayne, IN when the car was purchased brand new in 1980. Two original build sheets are included with the car. We removed the rear seat and discovered one of them in terrific condition. Please see the photo below of the build sheet still in the seat before it was removed. Also included with the car is the original owners manual, warranty book with the original owners name(Neil Applegate) on it, consumer information booklet, Delco Radio book, Emissions Information letter from the original dealer, maintenance booklet, compact spare tire pamphlet, and even the GM envelope the original owner received at the dealer with his name still on it. There is also a short write up pictured below showing all of the owners back to new.

As a side note, this Trans Am is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Pontiac, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Dark Blue Metallic exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos the paint has a beautiful gloss, terrific shine, and smooth finish. The decals are in very nice condition for being original, only the hood bird shows light checking. The nose crest emblem looks great as do the front bumper grills. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There may be some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. The BF Goodrich tires have nearly full tread left and are correctly sized 225/70/15 and the OEM 15x8 snowflake wheels look amazing with no curb rash, with 4 new center caps and new lug nuts. The trunk is very solid and clean; it comes with the spare tire, lug wrench, jack base and the correct original trunk mat, with original GM/Fischer T top bags. We have specifically included photos below of the areas of the body most prone to rust as well as many photos of the underside to show how clean and solid this Trans Am is.

The Trans Am looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

This Trans Am has a stamping on the radiator core support, which is pictured below. The core support shows a "3 24 80 stamp, or March 24, 1980. This stamping would be correct and original as it precedes the car's build date of the fourth week of October, 1980 (10D). As one can imagine, if this Trans Am had ever in the past sustained even a minor front end collision this part would have been repaired or replaced. The original stamping is great to see in tact.

Window Date Codes

Windshield: YZ - "Y" denotes October and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the windshield was made in October of 1980.

Driver: JZ - "J" denotes May and the "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the driver's side window was made in May of 1980.

Passenger: AZ - "A" denotes September and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the passenger's side window was made in September of 1980.

Rear: YZ - "L" denotes October and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the rear window was made in October of 1980.

Driver T-Top: TZ - "T" denotes August and the "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the driver's side T-Top was made in August of 1980.

Passenger T-Top: UZ - "U" denotes July and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the passenger's side T-Top was made in July of 1980.

Please note that ALL of the the glass on this car, even the T-Tops, is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of this fourth week of October, 1980 (10D). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

The Dark Blue deluxe cloth interior of this Trans Am looks utterly splendid. The seats are in amazing original condition with no excessive wear, rips, stains, or seam splits. Please note that these are the original seats, not some cheap or incorrect aftermarket covers. The carpet is in great condition with no excessive wear, stains, or holes. The original dash is in near perfect condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The engine turned dash bezel looks just as nice and virtually new. A very nice working am/fm Realistic Cassette radio was properly installed and thankfully the dash remains uncut for a modern stereo head unit. All gauges work as they should outside of the temp gauge, even the clock works and keeps time. Both door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner and package tray are both in excellent condition and are factory correct with no warping, sagging, or fading. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever. Please note in the video below how both seat belts operate and retract properly. This is a very common problem on this era "F-Body" and a small, but very important, detail most buyers do not think to check. Firebird interiors are not know to wear well and the spectacular condition of this original interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Trans Am is in terrific mechanical condition with only 18,780 original miles. The mechanics and the way this car runs and drives are some of its strongest points. The car has surprising power and quickness. This Trans Am is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well, runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. Also, the engine compartment is clean and highly detailed as one can see from the photos. The engine bay is extremely stock and unmolested, all of the factory components are still on the engine and not tampered with. All the exterior lights work as well as the wipers and blower for the heater and a/c on all speeds, but the horn does not work. Very importantly the "Check Engine" light still works properly, which is one item most buyers do not even know to look for. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. This is a factory A/C car and all the major components are still in tact but currently it is not functional. As one can hear in the video the car has a health exhaust note and no catalytic converter. This Trans Am has good power and handles very well being a factory ordered WS6 special performance packaged car with 3.08 rear gears. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially on a beautiful day with the T-tops removed.

Also, for any 1981 Trans Am you may look at, be sure to verify that the "check engine" light is working correctly. The light should go on when the key is turned on as a confirmation that the light is working, then quickly go off when the car is started. A great number of these 1981 Trans Am have had the bulb removed to mask other problems. As one can observe in the video below the "check engine" light on this car operates just as it should, going on with the car as a check and then going off when started.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1981 Trans Am is in excellent survivor condition. It is a great value and we have it priced to sell. The incredibly low mileage, the originality, and beautiful color combination make this Trans Am particularly desireable and nearly impossible to duplicate. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector or the average enthusiast. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
