This T/A showsexcellentin person, just as good or better than the pictures. it runs and drives excellent,odometer reading is documented,all the power options are in great working order, and the A/C works great. here is your chance to own a very well kept and cared for survivor. Absoluteshow stopper everywhere it goes. This car is an insane attention grabber, alwaysthe #1 topic of discussion.

I would put this car up agonistany othersurvivor81 Recaro T/A out there. You will not have to restore or even work on it. Just get in and drive it to your local car show.

I go through the car every time it goes on the road. This car does not see the Phoenix Sun in the summer and stays inside covered on a trickle charge. Fires right up and drives as nice and smooth as it looks.

Sale includes the original build sheet, books, and window sticker. This 81 trans am pace car shares the X code in the VIN with the Trans AM Super Duty and 10thanniversary Trans AM.

Please keep in mind, this is not a 1980 Pace car. All though they share similar looks and drivetrain, this 1981 Pace car is the only second gen Trans AM fitted with factory Recaro interior. Making it Highly unique and a rare find in this condition. There are not many of the 81 pace cars left, most of them have been scavenged for their interior or have been modified.
