WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

I am still on the hunt for a specific GTA.

It must be a 1988.

It must be Bright Red.

It must have GM T-tops.

It must have the digital dash.

I realize it will be difficult to find but finding the GTA of my dreams will make the wait worth it! I have been searching for this car on and off since 2002 and will appreciate your help with the search.

Thank you!

I have a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am notchback edition for sale. Only 718 built and this one is even more rare with T-tops and 5-Speed transmission. Has alittle over 139,000 miles but runs strong and shifts great. No modifications! Needs alittle tlc and would be as good as new. Asking 3500 or best offer.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

I don't know the entire values for the US Notchbacks, but having watched them over the years, the CC1-less 305s appear to be the least common. However, I'm sure many would consider it to also be the least desirable.

Even looking over the 84 Canadian 1988 Notchbacks, every single one of the 305 powered Notchbacks is CC1 equipped except for just one of them. As you can probably imagine, the majority of them are MXO equipped with the minority of them being the 5-speed.

Wes's car meets all your requirements except it's a 87 not a 88 don't know if thats a deal breaker for you but his is very well optioned out as in one of a handfull if that & low miles. In my opinion he's right there on the price...

As much as I would love to own that beautiful car I just don't have a place to store it. I'm looking for something that I can drive without being afraid of increasing the mileage.

I think the car you are looking for is on Ebay.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

Yes, very very beautiful but why is the location of the fender emblems so incorrect? Oh and we have that Corvette engine reference again. Another story auction.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

And why does it not have sail panel emblems? Seems like the air vents above the radio are broken. Obviously this car was stored in a very moist environment because the factory aerospoiler had to be replaced, the passenger side door panel fabric is separated, and the center console is split which is the results of high temperatures from being in the sun. Someone who has an ebay accound should ask the seller why.

The photographs are very high quality. They really know how to take very good ones at very good angles and showing very good details. I like them very much. Seeing them gives me ideas for the next time that I take them of my GTA. They must have spent a lot of time vacuuming that design into the carpet. But it is too bad that they did not take one of the RPO sticker since they bragged so much how wonderful and loaded this car is, surely they would have wanted to document that for everyone to see by showing the RPO sticker with those options that they mentioned in their auction.

I just wonder why the very fine detail (emblems) are not right.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

It will be interesting to read what the persons reply is. I was looking again at these photographs. Wow I really love them. The angles of the ones taken of the entire car I really love them alot. I will try to do the same angles when I take more of my GTA, hopefully next week when I take it out for some driving.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

I watched the video. I liked only the first part of it. It was sort of boring to watch the guy and listening to him talking while he was driving it, but I think that they did the first part of it very professionally. It was like a documentary of the GTA. The ending was interesting but I have not tried that before with my own GTA.

Car must have been repainted. That's why the emblems are in the wrong places and no sail panel emblems.
