1981 Pontiac NASCAR Turbo Trans Am Recaro Special Edition Pace Car Survivor
Here is what I have, an unrestored car with 105,000 miles.
Garaged, old decales are long gone and the paint is shot,
but this car runs and drives great for it's age.
I have replaced the tires and rebuilt the power steering pump due to leaking.
This is all we did to this car.
It has 105,000 on it and everything works.
I have the title ready to register it.
I bought it and have plans for it but if I can get my money out of it would sell it
and look for something else.

The Recaro is one of the most sought after cars around
and to have a completely originial car is incredible.

I purchased this car from the previous owner of 27 years.
He tells me the car has always been a Tennessee car.
The car has been sitting for the last several years.
The cars starts up easily and runs good.
The transmission shifts properly and the brakes stop the car properly.
The tires are a set of BRAND NEW GOODYEAR EAGLE ST tires
that have been mounted and balanced on the original rims.
The wheels centers are in excellent condition with nice center caps and emblems.
The wheels lugnuts are also the correct and original lugnuts.
Under the hood the car is completely original with all original components in place.
The car still retains the original catalytic converter and original exhaust.
The right side exhaust tailpipe is missing.
Everything around the engine is complete including all the original air conditioning,
radiator, fan shroud, master cylinder, horns, exhaust manifolds,
air cleaner, cruise control etc.
The original spare tire, jack and equipment are still mounted in the truck as original.
As stated mechanically the car starts, runs and drives
however the car has not been street driven in years and
I would therefore suggest hauling the car home rather than driving the car
as I have not put enough miles on the car to have confidence
driving the car on a long trip.
The exterior of the car is in fair cosmetic condition.
The paint on the car is old and faded with surface rust spots
on the drivers door and quarter panel.
The body on this car is EXCELLENT!
The only rust on this car is a hole in the right front corner of the hood
and along the right side flange of the hood.
The floors, quarter panels, doors, fenders, roof, trunk pan, trunk drop-offs
and more are all EXCELLENT as shown in the picture.
Even the radiator support is good on this car!
All the glass in the car is in good condition and
that includes the windshield.
The front plastic parking light grills are gone as the plastic has turned to dust!
The interior of the car is completely original and
this includes the original dash pad that has NO cracks at all!
The original gauges are complete and in nice condition.
The original steering wheel is in nice condition along with the horn button.
The original and unique to this Pace Car red digital AM-FM-Cassette Radio is correct.
The original & unique red carpet is complete and should clean up nicely.
The original and unique RECARO seats are in good condition
with the original net headrests.
The original & unique embroidered door panels are in good condition.
The original armrests are in excellent condition and not broken.
The headliner is beginning to fall and will need to be replaced.
The rear package tray is original but has lost all the black color.
The seat belts are all complete and in nice condition.
Overall this is a very good and complete
1981 NASCAR Turbo Trans Am Pace Car for restoration.
The car is very complete with virtually all the unique parts
to this car present and in good condition.
Price: Asking $10,000 Offers Considered
Yes I know it is a lot but it is one of only a few left and
the fact it is a factory Recaro interior in this car makes it even rarer
and it has never been modified.
