The third-generation of Camaro and Firebird-Trans Am has yet to really take off in terms of price and desirability. It was a semi dark time for the muscle car in general, as manufacturers were hampered by emissions and a declining economy shifted focus away from the all-out performance that sold in the previous generation of vehicles.
However, there were a few bright spots, and there are plenty to be desired throughout the third-generation of Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am, including what we have here. We spotted this 1989 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo, 20th Anniversary Edition waiting for a new home. The kicker is it only has 381 original miles, and the entire interior is still fresh with plastic covers from the manufacturer.
The other kicker is the exorbitant asking price: $65,000. This is certainly an excellent car, and will be desirable, but we’re not sure if it warrants $65,000, which is far beyond the threshold of what these cars sell for at present. Hell, some well-maintained, more desirable vehicles from the 1960s and early 1970s don’t reach $60,000 in a private transaction.
Still, it’s a very cool car. 1 of 1,555 ever made, the 1989 Trans Am Turbo is totally factory save for its original battery, which as since died. There likely isn’t a more minty-fresh Trans Am out there apart from this particular one. Check out the listing here.
