Pontiac Trans Am 1980 Description

Classic 1980 Pontiac Trans Am with T-Tops

VIN: 2W87TAL142968

White Exterior / Camel Tan Cloth Interior

2,500 Miles on Completely Rebuilt 1972 400 cubic inch engine 6.6L V8 with RAM Air 455HO Cam; was an original 301 Turbo car.


NEW Radiator, NEW Aluminum Intake, NEW Edelbrock Carburetor, NEW Hooker Headers, NEW Hood Hinges, NEW brake master cylinder, NEW brakes all the way around, NEW rear air shocks, some brake lines have been replaced, NEW aluminized exhaust from the headers to the tail pipe tips with NEW Trans Am tips, NEW door hinges on both sides (doors do not sag- easy to open and close) and NEW trunk liner with felt!

Custom Transmission is FRESH REBUILT TURBO 350 Automatic with shift kit; less than 500 miles and a 2200 stall converter, with external transmission cooler.

Has Posi 342 Rear End with Drum Brakes.

Car has A/C, but needs condenser, drier and compressor.

Heater and defrost works GREAT!

Pioneer Stereo/AM/FM/Cassette with Pioneer Super Tuner Amplifier and Graphic Equalizer and Pioneer 120 watt speakers…sounds awesome!!!

Working power antenna too!

Factory jack included!


This car has rust behind both doors, but rocker panels are good inside and out. Needs new trunk deck lid. Car was repainted in the mid 1980’… perfect car for someone who wants to restore, but on a budget. Has a 1979 hood with a FOE shaker hood scoop mounted; of which was original red, but has been painted white. We have a spare shaker hood scoop to include in the purchase for an original air cleaner base. All decals in are in fair condition; and the body has a few small dings and dents (see photos), but nothing major considering it is 37 years old and unrestored. It could use new weather stripping; as it is cracked and worn.

T-Tops are original FACTORY Tinted; and we even have an EXTRA set of T-Tops to go with the car!

Tires are BF Goodrich Radial T/A’s with 2,500 miles on original 8 inch gold snowflake wheels.

Car comes with EXTRA set of rear tail lights AND EXTRA gas door!!!


The interior is in decent shape, not perfect, has some scuffs on rear side panels and crack on dash pad (see photos). Carpet needs replaced. Seats are faded but NO TEARS…just the fuzz worn. We have matching camel tan seat covers that look like original fabric color on them to protect these original seats. Steering wheel and tilt column in excellent condition. Center console in nice shape and lid works with latch. All lights and gauges work and are accurate. Factory clock still works!!! Headlights are NEW Halogen! Power windows (a little slow), hasrare intermittent wipers – but motor needs replaced, and turn signals are all functional. Car has A/C, but needs condenser, drier and compressor. Heater and defrost works GREAT! Windshield is clear and crack free, with no wiper streak. Side door windows have some light scratches on them. We also have an EXTRA rear window to go with the car.

Car comes with Pontiac Accessory Kit Bag – Black Leather – Containing First Aid Kit & Plug-In Spotlight for Emergencies.

Under the Hood / Underbody:

The underbody is in good shape, with no through rust, just surface; also the floor pans and trunk pans good.

Overall, this is a really nice-looking Trans Am!!!

This car has been kept garaged for last 25+ years!

It is super fun to drive…and great for “Under Construction” Car Show Classes or a Fun Cruiser!!! Even though it’s not perfect, it still turns head and gets lots of compliments! The foundation is done, just need cosmetic finishing. This car would make a really nice project car, and an investment. We have driven this car to car cruises’ and had lots of fun…but due to health problems must go.

Car is currently licensed and insured with a clear title in hand and ready to go!
