Description

Up for sale is a very rare, 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am, Anniversary Indy Pace Car.
Car has been completely restored (suspension, brakes, exhaust, engine, transmission, interior, weather-stripping, etc.). Everything has been replaced or rebuilt to factory specifications or better. Certain things were upgraded just because it made sense to do it during restoration due to technology being better today than it was in 89. THIS IS NOT built to be a race car or drag car. This build was for a performance daily driver.
Suspension & Brakes - All suspension and steering components were replaced with new parts (struts, link, tie rods, arms, bushings, ball joints, etc. ) Modifications to this area include slotted and cross drilled rotors, Red powder coated factory calipers, adjustable strut mounts for better alignment. The engine cradle was dropped out of the bottom of the car when engine and trans were rebuilt, and the cradle was powder coated. Most parts were blasted and powder coated during this process. On a scale from 1-10 (10 being perfect), I rate this section as a 9.5 - just because nothing is perfect.
Engine & Transmission - Engine was rebuilt with forged parts, new bearings & file to fit rings (built and balanced by professional), everything checked and replaced as needed. New sensors, relays, switches, etc. Valve covers and intake were powder coated to factory colors and look awesome. Modifications to this area include billet wheel turbo, ceramic coated exhaust manifolds and turbo pipes, billet roller cam and lifters with matching valve springs, adjustable boost control (factory stuff was horrible), billet servo in tranny, and 325 lph fuel pump in tank. I rate this area a 9.5 as well just because there is always improvement areas here.
Body - New seals, polished paint, new emblems and weather-stripping, new hatch release, lights actually work (up and down positions), new tank and sending unit. Modifications to this area include a replacement fiberglass spoiler (factory ones were horrible). I rate this as a 9 just because there are some little imperfections here and there as you can expect from a driver.
Interior - Factory leather trim installed, new headliner, new top seals, hatch seals, new carpet, newly leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and e-brake handle. Modifications to this area include a leather wrapped dash pad (I hate those plastic ones), dynomat sound deadener installed throughout the car (doors, floors, etc.), carbon fiber dipped panels here and there (the factory patterns were worn and could not find replacements and this looks really nice). I rate this area a 8.5 only because the factory stereo with controls in steering wheel is not functioning (haven't even looked at why), seat belts are factory and a little faded. I do have the Door and Window Decals new in the box, just never installed them.
Overall, car is a solid 9.25 on a 1-10 scale and is in VERY good condition. As stated, this is a rare car - 1 of only 1555 produced. It is an Anniversary TA and Indy Pace Car with same drivetrain as the popular Grand National (different heads). I have many parts for this car collected during restoration that will go with the car as well. Fully documented restoration and clear texas title. Car has less than 200 miles on it since restoration.
I see that CARFAX shows a minor accident years ago, but there are no signs of anything like that. It must have been very minor. CARFAX also shows this was a high mileage car. It was owned locally for years and driven every day to and from work by previous owner. This is not a low mileage, keep locked up and never drive car. This was built to drive anywhere. AC blows cold, heat blow hot. This is a very nice car and very rare. Like I stated earlier, I have the INDY decals for doors and windshield in the box.
Call me at 817-988-3145 with questions, or text.
Will consider trades. Interested in 1970-72 Chevelle, 69 Camaro, any year Mustang, Grand National (hardtop), or anything of equal value
