Description of 1985 Pontiac Trans Am TRANS AM

1985 Trans Am 5.0 TPI T Tops, 3.27 Posi Rear, 4 Wheel Disc Brakes - Loaded! 90k original miles

If you stepped onto the floor of the Trail Pontiac Dealership in Mobile, Alabama back in 1985 looking for the perfect Trans Am, this is likely the one you'd want to drive out with. Loaded with options, including the top of the line 205 horsepower 5.0 TPI engine, T-Tops, Aero package, WS6 Suspension Package, J65 4 wheel disc brakes, 3.27 posi rear, 16 x 8 alloy wheels, split folding rear seat, power driver's seat, tilt wheel, cruise control, and the list goes on. Original window sticker comes with the car along with a bag full of receipts.

The 5.0 TPI in 85 was the only early TPI engine treated with the potent "HO" cam. Most of its later auto transmission counterparts received the smaller "peanut" cam. There is a noticeable performance difference.


One repaint in its original Blaze Red. The paint has a high gloss finish and presents extremely well. (The reflections you see in many of the pictures are of trees) The car sits on authentic factory GTA wheels along with a set of Fierce UHP tires with 95% tread life. I also have the original 16" factory alloy wheels. (I included a photo of the car with the alloy wheels taken Fall '17). Car will be sold with one set of wheels and tires, buyer's choice. Other set is available for purchase separately. The optional black aero wing (85 and 86 only) remains in good condition. T-tops are in excellent condition. No cracks in the windshield, side or rear windows.

Please keep in mind the car is 30+ years old and is by no means a trailer queen.


The interior is in very good original condition for its age. The cloth front seat covers have wear and are currently protected with aftermarket seat covers. I was planning to put new seats in this Spring but have gotten to it. The fold down rear seats are original and in excellent condition. All gauges, headlights, brake lights, blinkers, door locks, horn, windows, etc. are in working order. The car has an aftermarket radio that works well.


The stock 5.0 TPI engine received a complete tune up - brand new Bosch fuel injectors, intake and throttle body gaskets, air filter, spark plugs / wires, distributor cap, transmission filter and fluid change, oil change, and new catalytic converter. The front brakes and rotors are brand new as are the door weather stripping and interior upper door panels.Engine fires right up, idles smooth and is very responsive with plenty of power. The 700R4 4 speed automatic trans shifts clean through all gears. With the beefy UHP tires and W6S suspension, handling is crisp. The 4 wheel disc brakes provide good stopping power. AC is in good working order. Deep exhaust note.


The undercarriage is in very good original condition.


This is a great cruiser with all of the desirable factory performance options. All in all a sharp-looking Trans Am, good power, comfortable and reliable. Ideal for local shows, cruise nights or long drives. I encourage interested bidders to inspect the vehicle in person; its a very good car. Thank you.
