Pontiac Trans Am 1982 DescriptionHere is a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with the Rare MSE Mecham Motor Sports Edition package.This is car # 33 in the first year built for these.There is lots of info on the Internet about these rare cars- so I will keep it short- This car was sold brand new at the Mecham Pontiac Dealer in Glendale Arizona and was Equipped from them with the MSE Package brand new.This was a fully optioned Trans Am including the 4 wheel disc brakes and Deluxe interior with all the power options.Mecham adds Special Steering wheel. 160 MPH Speedo, Special rear wing, rear suspension limiters, front crossmember reinforcements, and lots of special badging and decals.- all of the rare Mecham parts are all there on the car except for the original Koni shocks.
Basic rundown is this- This car has been off the road since 1998- I still have the 1998 title and the plates on it.It has recently been brought back on line and is now a car that starts, runs, drives, steers and brakes.All the lights work- and it has been looked over and has no major issues mechanically. Suspension, steering and brakes are all operational and working.it has a fresh performance 350 in it with L98 Corvette aluminum Heads, Erson Gear Drive, Edelbrock Intake, Edelbrock Carb, Valve Covers and air cleaner.It has shorty style headers, dual cats and a Flowmaster exhaust. it Runs very good.it has a TH350 Auto trans.This car has no computer or other troublesome components- Runs on a Carb and a standard mechanical fuel pump- so it is cheap and easy to take care of- good basic Hotrod!this car has the 4 wheel disc brakes, big front and rear sway bars and posi traction.
The body is all original Panels and has no accidents or other big damage- it is a dry southwest car and has no body rot or rust issues either -nothing more than simple surface rust- This is a very solid car- really great one to restore.It has mostly all original paint- I only see a blend on the quarter and looks like the drivers door was repainted- all of that more than 20 years ago.- otherwise all original paint-
The Interior is complete and has new dash pad, MSE steering wheel has been recovered by LeCarra who originally made it, has aftermarket Recaro seats. Interior needs some restoring but it is all there. Power windows are new and work good, AC system is complete but not operational (needs to be converted to R134)- but everything is there and hooked up. It does need some attention with some of the gauges but nothing serious. It has power windows, power rear hatch opener, power locks, Cruise control, Tilt steering, power steering, power brakes, Power Mirrors.It does have a newer stereo that is working too.
This car was outfitted with the lower body kit and rare Ronal R9 16 inch wheels back in the 80's or 90's.(I do have the original 15 inch wheels too) -Tires have been replaced with some newer tires and will work for now.Windshield is New and the rest of the glass is in good shape.
this car needs to be restored- it needs to be painted, new weatherstripping and the interior finished restoring.- but it does not need any rust repair, no panels need replacing, no major body work needed- so pretty straight forward restoration here.
Buy it now for $6900.00 or make me an offer!!!!
this car does run but it should be transported to its new home- I have only driven it around the block a few times and not out on the open road as it is not currently registered (off the road since 1998)it will need some things fixed here and there but nothing too big or expensive.feel free to contact me with any questions- if you are serious and want to talk - just let me know.This was my personal project and I have owned it for a few years but I am moving and need to let it go.
