Murdock's 1981 5.0L T/A 

Here is the description sent to me by Murdock from Canada:

My T/A was made in Norwood, Ohio for the Canadian market. There is only 15,000 miles on it. It has a 305 CI HO engine, automatic, it is fully equipped except AC. It is Maroon outside with Tan interior. I ordered the car without any Eagle emblem on the engine hood. This car has never been out in the winter, the last time it was out in the rain was 1981. It is undercoated and has over “100” coats of hand rubbed wax. The 4 barrel carburetor was used “4” times, twice in 1981, twice in 1990. I have the original Pontiac build sheet and a copy of bill of sale. The car has the original Tires, Spark Plugs, Windshield Washer fluid, it has the original plastic covering the carpets entering the rear seat. The last time the car was driven after dark was 1981, it still has the new car smell, it is stored and covered in a heated garage. I have a log book documenting all maintenance and gas mileage plus a binder full of info. There is extensive Chrome and Stainless Steel braided hose in the engine compartment. I also have the original Pontiac brochure from which the car was ordered. Presently there is a set of Chrome Wheels on it, I have the original Stamped Steel wheels in my garage. The car is taken yearly to the local Pontiac dealer and checked out. It has been appraised as close to a 100 point car as you can get without completely restoring. It still has the original “OK” white chalk factory initial on the radiator shroud. I also have the original factory knock out key tabs.


Thank you Murdock for sharing you beautiful Trans Am with us!
