NOT YOUR AVERAGEGTA:
In addition to being a trueNotchbackthe car has the dealer installed SLP Performance package which includes:- Intake Runners- Headers- Exhaust System

I've owned this car for at least almost 9 years now and haven't had any issues. I'm not a dealer, private party sale. It has always been stored in a garage and I haven't put many miles on it, just driven to shows and cruise nights. Unfortunately I haven't had much time to enjoy it so I've decided its time to sell.
TheGTAhas approximately 130k original miles and runs very well. No taps or knocks its a strong engine and is fun to drive.The car handles nicely, several years ago I installed new front and rear KYB shocks, including new front springs and bushings. The automatic transmission shifts nicely and there is no weird noises or issues with the drive train. During the last oil change in late summer of 2019, I noticed one of the rear stabilizer bar links was missing. This is long bolt that goes on the rear sway bar if you google MOOG K700532 to reference which part I'm referring to, which is currently priced at $6 on rock auto. Unfortunately I didn't have time to replace in before putting the car back into storage.
There is no rust or rot on any of the panels or floor boards.
The car has always been reliable. I took a 16-hr round trip to Dayton Ohio several years back for the Trans Am nationals, no issues.
Options:- Digital Dash with Steering Wheel Controls- Power Windows- Power Seats- Power Locks- Cruise Control- AC
I am the only the forth owner of the car. Clear history report NO accidents, and clear title. The car was purchased new in my area in 1988 from a dealer in Allentown, PA and has been here in PA since then. Based on its condition and the information to from the prior owner I believe the car has been garage kept for most of its life. The car is straight. All panels still have the original panel stickers like under the door, hood and hatch etc. RPO is still in the center console. This is an original AA8 car - meaningnotchback.
The paint on the car is original, appears to have had some clear coat touch up due to the poor factory paint these cars are known for. The are a few minor dings and a few minor blemishes/scratches here and there, namely the scratch on the back hatch, the original paint is not flawless but looks and shines well as seen in the pictures. No photos were edited or enhanced.
Interior is also completely original, All the carpet and seats are original, as are the floor mats. There are some stains here and there but shows well. The hinge on the console door does need to be repaired, I do have an extra console door I will include in the sale.No cracks in the dash or rips in the seats. The car is equipment with the factory steering wheel controls, DELCO-LOC cassette/radio and power antenna that all work properly.
I have the original owners manual as well as two shop manuals included.
I have a nice custom fitted cloth cover that is included.
I have spare parts that I have stored for many years and will be included in the sale. I have an extra leather wrapped steering wheel that is in nicer condition than what is on the car that is included. Also included is an extra set of used GM floor mats matching the cars interior color which is in addition to the set inside the car.
I also have a pair of GM NOS windshield belt molding weatherstrip that is included. The originals do have some cracks but are all intact, just haven't gotten around to replacing them.
Under the hood the original engine is clean and neat and tidy in appearance.
The car has current PA stateinspection with collector tags. There are no hidden secrets about its condition and/or any mechanical issues; its ready to drive and enjoy. . . No the car isn't perfect but I've tried to describe the car as best possible, please message me with any questions. The car is being sold as is, where is. I would encourage any potential buyers to inspect the car and make judgments about its condition (i.e. poor, good, great, excellent) for themselves, everyone has different opinions. I'm not ashamed of this car and would be happy to tell you anything you'd like to know about it. I'd want and expect someone to do the same for me. I love to see it go to another fellow Pontiac enthusiast, the car deserve to continue to be driven, shown and enjoyed.
This is a very well maintained example of an un-restored 32 year old, well optioned, collector muscle car. These rare third gen cars should only appreciate in value in the coming years.
