“… a car where the primary purpose is to make your heart race.” 1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am magazine advertisement
Headlined “Visceral reality,” another '95 Trans Am magazine ad described the experience: “Pontiac Trans Am exists for one reason. To launch you into another dimension. Hit the gas pedal and the computer-controlled, 305-horsepower RAM AIR inducted V8 howls. Mind-bending acceleration. A responsive six-speed anticipates your appetite for the road. Attack corners with the support of high-performance suspension and 17-inch wheels. Standard dual airbags and ABS are always on standby. So strap on a Trans Am and step into the future. Because technology should move you. Pontiac Trans Am. We are driving excitement.”
Offered here in red over tan is well-maintained 1995 Pontiac Trans Am. The car's overall excellent condition is a credit to prior owners whose care and commitment is evident. Showing 98,244 miles on its odometer, or roughly just 3,800 miles per-year in average since new, the Firebird remains a terrific example of one of the last of the Pontiacs.
The car's exterior original red paint retains excellent gloss across all body panels including the bespoke rear-deck spoiler. There is no body damage, no dings, no dents to be found. Cabin glass and lighting lenses (including on the front lower driving lights) are clear and free of damage; the broad, smoked taillight is similarly damage-free. (The rear hatch opens properly, but its support struts need replacement.) Black trim on the window-surrounds and door handles has been well cared-for; chrome quad exhaust outlets retain their shine. Chrome, split-spoke wheels with Firebird-icon center caps are mounted with performance tires.
Inside, the car was optioned with tan leather upholstery on both the well-bolstered front high-back buckets and the two rear buckets as well. The condition of the leather is excellent, and with the exception of normal creasing and a small split seam on the driver's seat bolster, free of even much indication of normal wear. Door trim incorporates both tan leather and charcoal-colored plastic trim in a pleasing, curvaceous design. A black steering wheel with embossed Pontiac emblem (and airbag) frames a driver-oriented black dashboard. The dashboard surface has also been very well maintained showing no cracks or discoloration. An analog instrument cluster includes a 5,250-rpm-redline tachometer and 155-mph speedometer with smaller engine-monitoring gauges arrayed beneath. The center stack, angled toward the driver, includes the factory audio system (with equalizer), and heating and ventilation controls. The angled t-bar shifter for the automatic transmission is housed on the console together with performance control settings for the transmission, and the parking brake handle. Tan carpets covering the floors have been protected with fitted carpet mats in front. Stereo speakers are mounted in the rear cargo area.
Under the hood, the 5.7-liter V8 with ram-air induction is on display in a very clean and stock engine bay (thankfully not enhanced with spray-on shine products). Components are all present and properly mounted; there is no indication of added aftermarket systems. Even the original information stickers remain in place. Viewed from below, the car's chassis is straight and undamaged. Bilstein® performance shock absorbers are mounted.
While the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '95 Trans Am in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
