Mast Motorsports is responsible for the stout 454 cubic inch monster mouse all-aluminum smallbock LSX engine. This powerplant was dyno-tuned to 625 horsepower & 605 ft-lbs of torque. The engine has less than 2,000 miles logged. The transmission of choice is a built Tremec TKO-600 5-speed manual. Stopping duties are handled via power 4-wheel-disc brakes.  Rolling stock of choice are the FOOSE Nitrous 18x8 wheels fitted with 245/40ZR18 radials. The rear tires are lacking in the tread department. This is a real Hoss to drive and is very sound mechanically.

The engine compartment proudly displays the LS-series LSX V8 built by Mast Motorsports, complete with a functional Shaker hood scoop. The computer is an M-90, setup to control the factory gauges. The owner had a laptop connector added to make it easy to adjust settings. The exhaust system consists of custom LS-headers paired with true duals and the correct Trans Am turn-down exhaust tips. The original firewall, inner fenders, and core support are in excellent condition structurally. Also, the original trim identification plate is intact, confirming this to be an original Starlight Black Trans Am.

Fly High or Fly Low, many of our photos of this classic T/A were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. The paint has a number of flaws, mainly chips on the hood and nose along with paint cracking in the nose. The body is solid and the paint looks ok overall. Professional paint touch-up could bring this Trans Am to a whole new level. There are a few letters missing in the Trans Am fender decals too.

Open the doors to high performance & classic American Muscle. The interior features replaced Camel Tan vinyl upholstery over the factory bucket seats. The dash displays the factory gauges along with an upgraded removable face AM/FM CD Stereo. The interior is in very good condition throughout. It could use some upgrades, but this car is all about the mechanical performance. The trunk features the custom twin Kicker amplifiers, mounted up nicely. The undercarriage is in very good condition throughout. The frame and flooring is solid. The suspension was recently rebuilt as well. The glass T-tops are in good condition. The seals are just ok.
