Title: Did any non-Turbo Trans Ams come with Turbo Wheels? Second generation.
Post by: march24 on November 24, 2021, 03:43:54 PM
I have a 1981 Trans Am documented Special Edition with a 4.9 Liter engine (non turbo). When purchased, the car appeared to be in original condition with 47,000 miles. The wheels on the car are Turbo wheels and the tires have a manufacture date in 1980. The car was manufactured in April, 1981. I know from NFTAC Tech Section, Volume 2, page 158, that some Turbo Trans Ams came with snowflake wheels. I do not have the build sheet but have the window sticker and the wheels are not specifically listed. My question is whether any non-Turbo Trans Ams came with Turbo wheels? Any input is appreciated.
