This signifies a 5.0L Tune-Port Injected V8, and a limited slip “performance gear ratio” of 3.45:1 on a 9-bolt rear axle. While talking numbers is interesting for a while, the soul of the car really gets your heart racing. The Blaze Red paint looks showroom fresh and coordinates smoothly with the red and gray cloth interior. The red carpet shows no signs of sun fade, and the dash has no bubbling or splits, which is all too common on these cars.

1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA

1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA


Engine: 6.0L LQ4 V8
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 82,688 ( actual )

If there is one thing most Trans Am admirers can agree upon, it is the disappointing output of the third generation’s 305 and 350 TBI/TPI motors. However, our newest arrival here at the Dallas Gateway Classic Car showroom has rectified this common complaint. This beautiful example of a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am GTA will not only have you floored in the visual department, but will exceed your performance expectations as well. A complete powertrain swap to a LQ4 6.0 V8 and 4L80E transmission from the boat-anchored 350 TPI she came with was performed by Larry’s Speed & Custom of Fort Worth approximately 3000 miles ago. No expense was spared in completing this build, and all necessary swap components were employed. Custom wiring harness, Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, Walboro 255 LPH fuel pump, Holley EFI fuel rails paired with an LS1 intake, billet coil brackets, LSSimple alternator kit, BMR adjustable torque arm, and BRP headers with muffler delete. Hawks motor mounts and a Blackheart transmission crossmember keep the new powertrain properly supported while you dust Vette-after-Vette. New calipers hugging drilled and slotted rotors insure a positive and pulse-free stop. Additionally, the interior was upgraded to a custom, yet tastefully-upgraded upholstery. The body of this GTA has only 82,688 miles, so this bird’s skeleton was a great candidate for this impressive and popular swap. For more HD pictures and video, visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

1984 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am


Engine: 5.0L V8 4BL
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 34,207 ( undocumented )

This 1984 Trans Am is available in our Philadelphia showroom. The Trans Am is one of the most iconic American Muscle Cars. This one with only 34000 actual miles is equipped with a 305 CI V8 and an automatic transmission. Midyear, the L69 high output 305 was introduced. This carbureted 190 hp V8 was virtually identical to the L69 engine in the Camaro Z28, but used a different air cleaner assembly (instead of the Camaro's dual-snorkel air cleaner, the Trans Am received yet another functional cold air intake, designed to utilize the bulged hood). This Trans Am is equipped with that engine option. Other options include power windows and locks. An FM stereo and t tops. The exterior is finished in factory Red with a Trans Am decal on the hood and black lower two tone as well. Another new for 1984 option was the "High-Tech" 15-inch, 20-slot, concave aluminum wheels, painted Gold or Silver, with Black plastic center caps containing a Gold or Silver Firebird logo. The interior features bucket seats finished in gray cloth, floor shifter and a center console. This body style introduced in 1982 was the third generation of the famous bird. It was an immediate success and of course it was the inspiration for the Knight RiderTrans Am. This Trans Am is equipped with power windows and locks and a tilt wheel. It also has cruise control and power steering.

1985 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am


Engine: 411 CID V8
Transmission: Automatic
Mileage: 59,610 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Chicago showroom is this incredibly powerful 1985 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA Tribute. How powerful you ask? How’s 840 horsepower? With a 411 cubic inch small block Chevrolet V8 sending all those ponies through a 2-speed automatic Powerglide spinning the custom aluminum driveshaft into the Ford 9” fabricated rear end. The aluminum center section houses a set of 4.56 rear gears to get the 29.5/10.5-15 racing slicks spinning and rocket this GTA down the quarter-mile in the 9’s at 146mph! The build was done starting in 2001. While 840 horsepower is very impressive, getting all that power to the ground is ultimately what matters. The 10.5 in slicks help plenty, but the mini-tub 4-link suspension really keep everything level. Plenty of work was worked into all spots of the chassis including frame ties, front suspension limiting straps, coilovers, and the 4-link suspension. Wilwood brakes on all 4 corners bring this white lightning to a halt quickly and safely. The engine and transmission have both been refreshed with no passes since. The vehicle has a title, but it is not currently street-legal. With over 800 horsepower ready to slingshot you through the traps in the blink of an eye, this is one exhilarating machine. Options include: T-tops, Tilt Steering Wheel, Seat Belts, Kill Switch, Racing Wheels, Alloy Wheels, Posi-Traction Rear Axle, and Racing Slicks.
