1980 Firebird Interior Choices

Firebirds have always been offered in two trim levels, the standard and Custom.  The Custom interior was standard on Esprit and optional on Formula and Trans Am.  The custom interior offered more luxurious amenities like an improved seat design and specific door panels with carpeted lower sections.  There was also a holding strap on the passenger dashboard.

1980 was a year of few changes to the Firebird interior lineup.  The standard seat was slightly altered, eliminating the vertical sewn pattern at the top of the seat for a cleaner look.  Cloth inserts for the Standard interior were introduced at mid-year in both Blue and Camel Tan colors.  A dark shade of Blue was introduced for the Custom interior replacing the light Blue of 1979 and this Dark Blue was added to the Standard interiors palette.  IN a vein similar to the Tenth Anniversary Trans Am of the previous year a new Indianapolis Pace Car was introduced with a special vinyl and hobnail cloth interior to commemorate the Firebird pacing the Indianapolis 500 that year.  The color was Oyster with Gray appointments.  Like the Tenth Anniversary Trans Am the Pace car also had embroidered birds on the door panels and center of the rear seat.  This special interior could not be had on any other model.
