Used 1987 Pontiac Firebird for sale in Houston, Texas
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this special 1987 Pontiac Firebird TransAm. This black-over-silver TA has been customized with a bunch of custom upgrades. Starting with its 350 CID V8 GMPP crate engine that has been upgraded to 1990 L98 Corvette specifications, including reconditioned L98 aluminum heads (done by Dale Parker), complete with new heavy duty valve springs, new valves, and roller rockers. This mighty mouse is also enhanced with an L98 Corvette-spec roller cam, Edelbrock upgraded TPI system, ported upper and lower intakes, larger diameter throttle body, and new injectors. An SLP cold air intake system helps improve the volume of air fed to the motor, along with reducing its temperature, further enhancing the power output potential. A custom exhaust system sucks the spent gases out, and provides a nice rumble out back, as well. Helping get the power to the ground are a new 700R4 4-speed automatic trans, new aluminum driveshaft, and a set of 3.42:1 gears with PosiTrac differential. Not only has the drivetrain been substantially enhanced, but so has the rest of the car. It also has a Wilwood brake-bias proportioning valve, new front and rear springs, new gas shocks, new GPA cross-lace wheels, and 245/50-ZR16 BFG g-Force TA tires at all 4 corners. Inside, it has GTA-style door panels, leather seating surfaces, 10-way power adjustable front seats from a 2002 Trans Am, new console, new carpet, new headliner, new sunvisors, a new console, new inner rear quarter panel covers, new kick panels, and a locking cargo area cover and side storage. In addition, it has a complete electronic dash (a rare option for 87-88 Firebirds) with digital fluorescent gages and warning system for open doors and lamps, plus electronic solenoid-operated controls for HVAC functions, and a 2002 steering column (to accommodate the steering wheel-mounted radio controls). The radio is a 2005 model year GM radio system with RDS, MP3, CD, AM-FM, and XM capabilities, and the speakers have been upgraded to Pioneer 4-way units. The rear view mirror is also a step up from what it came with, and has compass, temp, Homelink, map lights, and electro-photochromic capability (auto-dimming LCD mirror). Even the paint has been refreshed on this beauty - the black over silver color scheme was redone by Kellys Paint and Body Shop, and all tape appliques and emblems are correct for the year model, including the large hood Bird decal, which was available on 1986 1/2 and 1987 Trans Ams. Additonal options available on this unique, custom 1987 Firebird Trans Am include Air Conditioning (complete with a new AC compressor), Aluminum Wheels, AM/FM/XM/CD/Cassette, Cruise Control, Electric Mirrors, Keyless Entry, Leather Seating, Lumbar Supported-Power seats (front), Power Brakes, Power Locks, Power Steering, Power Windows, Posi-Trac, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, T-Tops, and Tilt Wheel.
