TTA #1525 for sale. All Arizona car.

I never thought I would write this, but I need to put TTA#1525 up for sale. Mainly, the garage where she is stored will no longer be available after October, and I cannot afford to keep her with the recent birth of my daughter. It’s a t-top leather car that is originally from Arizona, and has been here its entire life. It was the grand prize in a giveaway from Parts Plus. I’ve done a few mods to mildly help performance and appearance, but have the original parts if one wanted to convert back.

3” THDP clone with exhaust cutout.
Global West Suspension sub frame connectors
Under hood chrome shielding and piping.
Russ Salerno custom Eprom chip. (think that’s his name)
Fiberglass spoiler with correct paint.
Lexan tops kept indoors, there is a glass set for driving.
T-Top inserts
Original paint in excellent shape
Standard drives bolster wear, but not torn through the leather.
Some wear on steering wheel leather
Owners Box minus original stickers (are on the car)
TTA Spark Plug wires
Original window sticker/PHS docs/Contest winning letter



I purchased the car in 1999 from the original owner (2 total owners) with 20,700 miles. It currently has about 33,000 miles on it. I will get some pics of it up soon, but most of you all know what they look like. You can call me at 602-315-2327 if you have any questions. $14,999.

Sorry to hear you have to sell.

When you say a Napa giveaway was this when new? Any promotional adverts or docs from when the promotion ran?

I have a poster, but it's in pretty bad shape. I also have the letter announcing the person who won it. It was an older gentleman from Holbrook, AZ.

That is really cool, any chance you can post a good photo of it when you post photos of your car. Would love to see it.

Anyone got this sweepstake card? - Turbo Trans Am Forum

I contacted Hardees a few years ago to see if I could find out more and if they actually did raffle a car (or not) ... looks like a couple of the festival cars were actually dealer raffle cars in the end ... trying to find out more about it

Re: TTA #1525 for sale. All Arizona car.

Here is a pic of the poster. I thought it was Napa, but its Parts Plus. I took a few more close ups if anyone is interested. For whatever reason, the original winner blacked out some of the words on it. it should say "Win an Indy car from Parts Plus" on top and "Register here to win a replica pace car-a fully-equipped 1989 Trans Am GTA. Ask for a free prize brochure" The pic shows a standard GTA, they must not have had the proper promo materials at the time.

Re: TTA #1525 for sale. All Arizona car.

That is a very good buy at that price and sounds like it is very well cared for through the years! Great piece of history there.

Yep Shane should be driving the car down in the next couple of weeks, and we worked out a deal we are both happy with. The car has a couple of quirks that keep it out of the "show car" category, but it's all stuff that I've dealt with before on my other cars. It's a great deal on a car with a great history, and it's getting a good home.
