The Pontiac Firebird is an American automobile that was built and produced by Pontiac from the 1967 to 2002 model years. Designed as a pony car to compete with the Ford Mustang, it was introduced on February 23, 1967, five months after GM's Chevrolet division's platform-sharing Camaro. This also coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, Ford's upscale, platform-sharing version of the Mustang.
The name "Firebird" was also previously used by GM for the General Motors Firebird in the 1950s and early 1960s concept cars.
The second-generation debut for the 1970 model year was delayed until February 26, 1970. This generation of Firebirds were available in coupe form only; after the 1969 model year, convertibles were not available until 1989.
For the MY 1980, ever-increasing emissions restrictions led Pontiac to drop all of its large-displacement engines. MY 1980 therefore saw the biggest engine changes for the Trans Am. The 301, offered in 1979 as a credit option, was now the standard engine. No manual transmission was available for the Formula or Trans Am in 1980, all received the 3-speed automatic Turbo Hydramatic 350. Engine options included a turbocharged 301 or the Chevrolet 305 small block. The turbocharged 301 used a Garrett TB305 turbo attached to a single Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburettor and featured a hood mounted "boost" gauge that would light up as the TB305 accumulated boost. The hood of the 301T equipped Firebirds had a large offset bulge to accommodate for the mounting position of the carburettor on the motor as the turbocharger exhaust occupied a large amount of space in the engine bay. The 301T set up was relatively primitive new technology at the time of its development and could not properly maximise the efficiency of the turbocharged set-up. The 301T equipped T/A's were restricted to an automatic transmission. Some owners have claimed quite reasonable performance numbers with the modern fuels.
The Pontiac 301 Turbo is an engine that Pontiac produced for the 1980 and 1981 Trans Am. It was a V8 engine with a displacement of 301 cubic inch which produced an officially factory rated 210 hp (157 kW) and 345 lb⋅ft (468 N⋅m) of torque in 1980. In 1981 it underwent some changes and offered a conservatively rated 200 hp (149 kW) and 340 lb⋅ft (460 N⋅m) of torque. The Turbo Trans Am was first added to the Pontiac model lineup in 1979 as a 1980 model year, and was the first production Pontiac V8 engine to utilize forced induction; in this case through an exhaust-driven turbocharging system. It was only available for two years, in the 1980 & 1981 model year, which were also the last two years of this body style of the Trans Am.
For muscle car fans, the 1980-81 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo is the most famous example of the engineering optimism so pervasive at General Motors. Flush with Buick's success at building a peppy, relatively frugal turbocharged V6 for the Regal, the Century, and the Riviera, Pontiac made the decision to bring a pair of extra cylinders to the boost party and shake off some of the high performance stagnation that had taken root in the company's showrooms.
A 1980 turbo Trans Am was featured in the movie Smokey and the Bandit II.

The car is in a very decent condition. Fully functional and beautiful car, automatic transmission shifts cleanly, engine has a beautiful sound. No rust, very nice interior, rare speedometer in kilometers per hour. Imported from Canada, customs cleared.
