Please don't post or email me how difficult this car is to find...I've owned a 1987 GTA Midnight Russet Metallic...that's brown for you who don't know, with DD9 paddle mirrors.

I've found the car I'm loooking for...even better it's a 350 TPI/AUTO T TOPS(FACTORY) DIGITAL DASH FLAME RED METALLIC RED CLOTH.

and yes the VIN verifies it's a 350 TPI car and the T TOPS are factory. I learned something about GM with this car.

That doesn't sound right? maybe ask someone on here, I don't recall if you could get 350 with t-tops in 87 only 305. But im glad you found the car your looking for, the flame red interior is awesome, i just need to find front seats.

I can vouch for Louie having the brown GTA with Paddle mirrors. I tried to buy it off E-bay but was outbid at the last minute. How many Russet Brown with paddle mirrors car were built?

Total of 372 for 87. DD9 mirrors I have no idea since they were canceled mid year.

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

"Could you get a 350 TPI GTA with T-tops?"

"Yes, and No. Initially for 1987, only 5.0L U.S.-bound GTAs could have T-tops installed; they were not, according to the order sheets, available in any Firebird model with a 5.7L engine. Again, this was a weight issue dealing with the CAFE ratings. GTAs destined for Canadian delivery in 1987 were not bound by the same requirements, and were available with the 5.7L engine and T-tops.

According to Pontiac order sheets and production records, the only GTAs subsequently available with both the 350 TPI engine and the T-top option were the 1989 model cars; the GTA that year enjoyed a large build number with both options. Starting in 1990, all 350 TPI GTAs were available as hardtops only. I have seen evidence of a few 1991 5.7L GTAs built with the hatch roofs, but that is only single-digit production."

Found it on here actually

The RPO sticker confirms everything. If it is not on the RPO sticker, it is simply folklore.

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

Dealer installed C&C t-tops were done but no RPO.
Factory installed Fisher T-Tops were done with RPO.

T-Tops could be had on all sorts of firebirds, even with the 350s. Couple guys in my club have factory t-tops with 350s. There's also an 87 GTA that also has t-tops with the 350 from the factory. So they do exist.

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

The car is a factory 350 TPI with factory t tops. OK. When I get it delivered I will post pics of the car, vin and anything else so everyone can make more speculation over the car while I drive it and enjoy it with the factory t tops off mashing the gas pedal all the way down bringing the 350 TPI roaring to life...

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

If it is a 1987 and has the 350 engine with t-tops, it means it is from Canada. The RPO sticker will have the codes to support all of this.

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

Yup its a Canadian GTA if its a 350 ttop car, but wouldnt it have paddle mirrors too.....???? My 350 was swapped in, thats the only reason mine has a 350 tpi. And if even you post pics it wont make a difference. Yumiko said it all with the last post. To me it seems you need to do research on GTA facts. I even questioned the guy when i bought my GTA how it has a 350 with t tops. Sure enough it was swapped in.

Can't you just re-upholster the seats that are in the car? That is what I'm going to do with my seats.

Re: Wtb 87 gta 305/350 tpi flame red met/red int

Well what you could do is find some GTA seats some where on ebay or something. If the fabric color is different, just buy the upholstery on the internet and replace it. You were probably going to do this anyway.
