There are a few times in a classic car collector environment where you find out how extremely rare a production car really is. Usually, the opportunity presents itself by the time the car is worth far more than any mortal man can possibly dream about owning. We'd like to end this pattern by presenting one of Pontiacs most limited production sports cars ever built. As Pontiac neared the end of its illustrious legacy, the Firebird continued to be the namesake of it sports car line up. The fourth generation was introduced in 1993 and ended alongside the Camaro in 2002. Unfortunately, the doors closed for Pontiac in 2010 making any car produced over their 84 years of operation the last we will ever see!

About This 1998 Pontiac Trans Am For Sale:
Now available at the St. Louis Car Museum is a fantastic 90s Trans Am example equipped for the first time with the ever powerful LS1 5.7L all-aluminum V8 engine mated to a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission and limited slip rear axle! Standard equipment includes 4-wheel power disc brakes with anti-lock system, traction control, power rack and pinion steering, air conditioning, power windows and locks, keyless entry, power convertible top, cruise control, tilt steering column, 16" alloy wheels, theft alarm system, full dash instrumentation with dash tachometer, rear deck spoiler, and more! Options on this exciting Pontiac Trans Am are the WS6 Ram Air Performance Package that attached cold air induction through functional hood scoops increasing output to 320 horsepower and 345 lb. ft. of torque, upgraded 17" polished 5-spoke wheels with high performance Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, larger 32mm front/19mm rear sway bars, stiffer shocks, higher spring rates, rear panhard bar, low restriction exhaust system, and a power steering cooler! Additional factory options include an upgraded performance 3.23 axle ratio, enhanced audio with CD player and equalizer, steering wheel audio controls, 6-way power driver seat, luxury reclining bucket seats, and fog lamps!

This particular Trans Am WS6 Convertible was ordered by Axelrod Pontiac located in Parma, OH, but was quickly secured by a buyer from Northfield, OH on May 6th, 1998 with only 9 miles on the odometer! It would not trade hands again until early 2020. After 22 years of ownership, the Trans Am model would find its way to a dealer in January 2020 with only 12,893 actual miles on the odometer, then to its second registered owner in March 2020. It is only due to an upcoming relocation that limits garage space that forces the sale of this Bright Red Trans Am Convertible! Today, the odometer reads 14,260 miles which are clearly fair weather, carefully driven miles. In fact, it still has the original date-coded Goodyear F1 tires on the ground to prove it!

Please, take a hard look! This 90s muscle car is in remarkable condition! Compared to rarest of muscle cars produced through the 1960's and 1970's, no other car from the twentieth century will ever have the possible investment return as this one! For further investment proof of rare high output convertibles; look into a Corvette L88 Roadster, any Hemi-powered convertible, Buick GS455 Stage I convertible, as well as, the Chevelle LS6 convertible, along with just a few others that will never match the unbelievable low production rarity of this '98 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 Convertible! According to 1998 Trans Am production statistics, of the 229 Trans Am WS6 Convertibles, only 51 units were coded 81U- Bright Red, only 36 convertibles were ordered with a white top, and only 31 had a white leather interior. Making this model very rare indeed! This marks one of those rare opportunities to tuck away a vehicle that is virtually irreplaceable!

This car will come with one set of keys, original owner's manuals, and factory boot cover for when the top is down. This stand-out Trans Am has been upgraded with a very high dollar Hooker stainless steel exhaust headers and Hooker Blackheart stainless steel 2.5" dual exhaust system with polished mufflers and quad exit tips! Take it from us, this 90s muscle example sounds amazing! The brake rotors are now cross-drilled and slotted, with professionally painted calipers in red fitted with performance pads along with upgraded Bilstein shocks at all four corners. An opportunity to own a beauty like this could only come along once in a lifetime!
