Description for Pontiac Firebird 1989

The GTA was the top-of-the-line Trans Am in 1989, oaded with every single option Pontiac could throw at it. Because of the performance potential of the L89 engine, he suspension was upgraded, nd visual cues were more pronounced, ncluding monochromatic paint. In short, his 1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA is the one you wanted then and the one to own today.This beautiful Flame Red GTA has all the standard GTA styling features, nd it still looks fantastic even 25 years later. With just 42,905 original miles, t has been a pampered toy from new, nd has never been used in winter weather or as a daily driver. It was repainted a few years ago and shows a few minor signs of use, ut there's still lots to love about this bright red F-body. The urethane ground effects and spoilers found on the GTAs are in good condition as well, ith no signs of warping or discoloration, lthough it's impossible to keep them from cracking simply due to age and if you look closely, ou'll see a few hairlines starting to form on the rear spoiler. On the other hand, he dedication to keeping it all stock is to be commended and at this price, few flaws won't stop you from falling in love.This GTA features code 662 Camel leather interior, hich has been wonderfully preserved. Looking far more expensive than its $392 price tag would indicate, he Camel leather is the perfect complement to the Flame Red paint. The leather is in very good condition given that it's now 26 years old, nd clearly someone took very good care of this car. There are some comfort lines in the driver's seat, ostly on the side bolster where it obviously sees quite a bit of action. The GTAs came loaded with options, ncluding power windows and locks, /C, ruise control, nd a tilt steering column, nd this one even still sports its original AM/FM/cassette stereo, irectly out of the 1980s. And yes, here are a lot of buttons, ut with a little familiarization you'll be impressed with Pontiac's dedication to tech. In back, he hatch area offers plenty of storage and remains in very good condition and with T-tops, pen-air motoring is easy and fun.The L98 V8 under the hood is no joke. Stolen from the Corvette, t makes 240 horsepower in this application and a whopping 345 pounds of torque, hich was why GM chassis engineers were fearful of putting it in a car with T-tops. With a crisp burble from the tailpipe at idle and a full-throttle battle cry that made Mustang 5.0s run and hide, his engine is legendary in GM circles for its performance, ivility, nd reliability. It's completely stock, hich is pretty shocking considering how modification-friendly the L98 really is, nd it runs superbly, s you'd expect from GM's legendary small block V8. But the GTA's biggest advantage was agility, hanks to the WS6 handling package that included stiffer springs and shocks, s well as those gorgeous gold lace alloy wheels wearing 255/60/15 BFGoodrich performance radials. Beautifully preserved and an absolute blast to drive, his is exactly the kind of car that we love here at Streetside Classics: unusual, ffordable, nd with an interesting story to tell. Have some open-air fun this summer with this fast and flashy GTA. Call now!
