Description

New to market is this remarkably low-mileage 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am Pace Car. Originally introduced as the pace car for the ‘89 Indianapolis 500, this is number 420 of 1,555 collector edition examples produced.

The 20th anniversary edition Trans-Am featured unique badging, graphics and iconic 16” basketweave wheels. All anniversary edition examples were finished with white exteriors and a medium beechwood/camel interior, this car wearing the optional leather trim. Our collector grade example has the original white paint from the factory, is matching numbers and has just 1,613 miles since new.

The Turbo cars of this era were an important part of American history. U.S. spec cars were finally able to put down competitive horsepower ratings while meeting government emissions standards. The 3.8L Turbocharged V6 was rated at 250 Horsepower but extensive third party tests show closer to a 300HP rating. The WS6 high-performance suspension and Corvette style heavy duty brakes offer a visceral yet refined and connected driving experience that we have come to love about classic cars.

An exceptionally well documented ownership history inclusive of the original window sticker, the original 20th Anniversary ownership letter, a binder of service history, all original manuals and even 2 sets of keys. Delivered new to Coggin Pontiac, Inc of Durham North Carolina, this car has never seen rain, snow, or ice. A true collector grade piece looking for it's next caretaker.

All reasonable offers and trades are always considered. For any additional information feel free to visit our showroom at 2475 Fairfield Ave, Black Rock, CT 06605, or give us a call at +(203) 335-9555.
