There was originally 540 built this year. of which only 164 were Black 6 Speed Manuals with T-Tops. Out of the 540 only 327 at present are confirmed as still being alive. this makes it a very rare Pontiac model. Potentially that makes this 1 of only 102 in the world still alive and kicking.

This vehicle was sourced and imported in Sep 2014 by myself. only 2 owners including me. It has custom built round Hella Projector Headlights. DRL delete and Switch back LED's for indicators to comply with the UK MOT (they are white for side lights and flash amber for indicators and switch back when the indicators go off - reverse lights are the same). No irreversible modifications have been done in order to make the vehicle comply with UK regulations unlike a lot of other imported vehicles - youll find others have had holes drilled in lights and bumpers to add fog lights and indicators with very poor wiring added to make it work - you will find NO poor workmanship on this vehicle with its modifications.

It was imported with a non original single din American radio which has now been replaced with a custom Android 8” Touch Screen computer with SatNav. radio. MP3. DV system. BT hands-free. full steering wheel control and a OBD II to Bluetooth diagnostic and live vehicle info.

Being so rare. it has had a top of the range Viper Alarm system installed with remote start. 1mile remote range and integrated GPS tracker all with its own hidden battery backup. The remote start features a custom sensor to prevent starting when in gear. This system also works via an app on your phone so you can lock. unlock and remote start / stop from anywhere in the world. including live tracking and several different types of email alerts.

It has been to an LS1 specialist in the UK to have some extensive remapping completed to gain the most out of the engine for our higher octane fuel. and to correctly adjust the programming for the long tube headers SLP installed at the factory —but are not allowed to remap (USA emission regulations).

It has recently had an all round liquid flush and change (coolant. oil. diff. gearbox. aircon. steering etc). A NEW clutch. flywheel & pressure plate with a NEW slave cylinder & a remote bleeder kit. Its Recently had new tyres. New brake pads all round. New recon steering rack. New solid intermediate steering shaft. New upper & lower front A-Arms. New bushings all round (front and back). New Trans-mount. New Engine Mounts. New serpentine belt. New idle pulleys. Also installed a PCV Oil catch can.

There is also an SLP line-lock just for good measure!

I highly recommend you come and see this vehicle. I have advertised the vehicle elsewhere and reserve the right to remove it from eBay.

You will need to come with ID. and a certificate of fully comp insurance to the value of £20000 if you want to test drive. else you'll have to be a passenger. Sorry

I will also sell with the private plate F11HWK. valued at £2000
There is also a laptop and software and an external ECU OBD2 programmer.
I also have a lot of spares from when I stripped a parts only car. which includes T-Tops. interior and a rear screen. I will allow these to go with as part of the deal.

If you would like to arrange a viewing or ask any questions please contact me on 07734620142

With all the modifications. and upgrades. import and registration the car owes me £15000. I'm looking for offers in excess of £12000. If you look in the states and lucky enough to find one they go for as much as $30000. before you have imported and modified it etc. You will struggle to find a Trans-Am/Firebird in this condition let alone another Firehawk. These have hit there lower price and are just going up in value - it is a collectors car after all.

A little bit of info for those that don't know the order of the Pontiac and Camaro Model lineup (Starting from base model is as follows). I'm sure some will argue its different!

Pontiac = Firebird -> Trans-Am -> Formula -> WS6 -> Firehawk

Chevrolet = RS -> Z28 -> F1 (Z28 with appearance package) -> SS

The Camaro SS was SLPs production model but is on par with the WS6. Chevrolet didn't produce an in-house performance model like Pontiac did with the WS6 and both the base models (RS and Firebird) were V6. The Firehawk is in a league of its own and is more of a collectors edition being made in far few numbers and each being specially numbered.

If you would like to arrange a viewing or ask any questions please contact me on 07734620142

There have been quite a few tyre kickers offering stupid values around what you would expect to pay for a trans-am or ws6 - it isn't one. please read this classified entirely and do your research - look at the prices of these in the states. they are going for a lot more and you wont know what you have till it gets here. then you have to convert the lights. service it and register it.

I don't have to sell this vehicle. its for sale because I would like someone to use and enjoy it more then I can (I have a 1969 GTO I would like to use more).

NOTE: although this is a near perfect example. it is a 15 year old car and as such does have a couple things that it would benefit from to bring it up to showroom condition (see below) - and as such the price I'm after reflects this however. come down have a look and make an offer based on you actually seeing the vehicle and doing some research of what it is.

American chrome wheels never last long (crap chroming). a lot of people replace them with cheap non standard wheels. but these are the original factory supplied FIREHAWK wheels. I have the details of a company that will do reverse electrolysis (NOT SAND BLAST) the wheels to remove the chrome and re-chrome (quad plate. not triple) @ approx. £150 per wheel or they can be Powder coated (satin black for instance) approx. £80 per wheel. 90% of the composite bonnets suffer from a primer reaction (issue at the factory) and you may see a paint reaction (like the paint has bubbled underneath from rust) - ITS NOT RUST its a plastic bonnet. and its an easy fix. As part of a refresh I was going to put the car through a body shop to bring it up to showroom condition. bonnet and bumpers re-sprayed (stone chips etc) and full wet polish @ approx. £500Recolour of the leather to remove normal wear marks (there are NO rips in the leather) @ approx. £100There is a crack in the driver door card (very common problem on Pontiacs) - I have replacement undamaged door cards and other interior items that will come with it as detailed above. If/when I have time I will replace it myself. its not hard. just time consuming undoing everything.

As you can see from the small list it equates to less then £1500 to bring this vehicle to top showroom condition. hence the price I'm asking. if the car doesn't sell this year. I'm not bothered. During the winter when there are no shows to go to I will get the work done. But the price will go up and I will be asking close to £20k and will probably go to a collector in Sweden or the Emirates. Get it now for much less. enjoy it for the rest of the summer and do those items in the winter yourself ready for next year. The reason I haven't done it now is I wanted to have it out at the shows. which I couldn't do with the wheel and body shop timescales.


Recently I had been at Brands Hatch (Speedfest) and SantaPod Mopar Nationals.
