1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Black Bird)

Trophies: 14 Give a trophy Last updated Jan 5, 2008  

Photo of a 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Black Bird)


I bought this car in 1989 and started restoring it in about 1991. It was sitting under a tree out in the country. I called on a 69 GTO in the paper and went out to take a look, then I saw this poor abandoned Bird sitting under the tree............the bird loves it's new home. :)


I replaced the 301 turbo that was in the car with a rebuilt 455 out of a 73 Grandville. The transmission is TH350. I replaced rear 3:08 disc rear end with a drum 2:41. It's a freight train! I removed all of the old computer and wiring...this 81 thinks it's a 73. It turns heads wherever I drive it and I hardly ever fill up the tank without somebody walking up and wanting to have a closer look.
