CAR: 1983 Trans Am
BODY: 2 Door Convertible Black
We are proud to offer a piece of TV History! 1983 Pontiac Trans Am Knight Rider KITT convertible replica. It has been owned by the same owner for the last 17 years. It has the original 305 V8 Crossfire Fuel Injection engine which works and runs great. There have not been any engine modifications. It is one of the rare Auto Form retractable hardtop convertible conversions, which you had to purchase through a dealer back then. They would then send the car out to the company to have the conversion completed. It comes with an original Auto Form color brochure that illustrates everything, original 1983 owner’s manual and maintenance form, 1983 Pontiac dealer brochure, and complete ’83 Firebird Service manual. This car has always been garage kept and not driven in the winter.
This Replica has the iconic red scanner on the front end, functioning interior KITT voice display with phrases, speedometer, RPM’s, fuel, 9″ LCD Screen, functional lighted horn button, switchable cruise mode buttons (normal, auto, and pursuit), lighted gas pedal, and correct round shifter knob (machined out of aluminum). It has power steering, windows, locks, driver’s seat, 4-wheel disc brakes, correct 15″ turbo cast wheels and hubcaps, and brand-new tires with about 400 miles on them. It also has factory power mirrors, and the switch remains in its original location underneath the lower console. It may need to be re-wired/re-connected. The car has cruise control option, but it has never been used. Both sets of 5-point seatbelts can be tucked away for display purposes. It also has show accurate fog lights, and a brake line lock device installed just like the TV show’s stunt crew did on their vehicles. This was done by a friend who owns an original car from the series. Turn signals/hazard lights were relocated to small bulbs in the fog light opening to keep it street legal. It also has an adjustable tow bar on the front to replicate the TV car as well as custom floor mats. The car has original exhaust pipes, and bowling ball hubcaps have been secured to the rims with zip ties. The scanner has the function for the audio sound, but never hooked it up to a speaker. It also has several different selectable flash patterns.
The roof is a manual retractable hardtop. It originally was lined with a tan fabric top over the fiberglass roof. The hardtop and deck lid have been painted to look more like the show car. This car is rarely driven with the top up.
Both hood and trunk shocks are durable and stay up on their own. A/C was repaired several years ago, and works/blows cold. The car was bought in 2001 with just under 63,000 miles on it. The odometer does not reflect that because when the dash was installed the guy who did the work never re-connected it. It shows around 66,000 miles now. This car has been driven about 6000 miles since then, so it has about 72,000 miles now. The car was in the stock condition when purchased. All Knight Rider modifications were done during my ownership of the vehicle. Clean history, no accidents. Originally this car came with a black/gold paint with tan interior.
This replica comes with a KNIGHT license plate and Knight Rider DVD Collection.
This car is a real head-turner, and continuously get compliments whenever seen. It has been featured in local shows, newspapers, and magazines. This car is not a trailer queen and has imperfections because it has been driven and enjoyed. It has various dings and chips in the paint, but it still looks great.
This KITT Replica has new calipers and hoses, transmission pan/gasket/filter replaced, valve cover gaskets, differential cover gasket, speed gear “O” ring replaced August 2018. Oil changes have been done annually. Runs great without leaks.
