For Sale: 1996 Pontiac Firebird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

We love GM cars touched by SLP, because they know how to add performance and do it in small batches. That's why you should get excited about this 1996 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Comp T/A. It's an ultra low-mileage sports car modified by SLP under the blessing of GM, and the affordable price will make you do a double-take on a coupe that's believed to be only 1 of 164 ever made!

The Comp T/A is a pretty cool car. They only came in Bright Silver Metallic, because they were celebrating the 25th anniversary of the BF Goodrich Comp T/A tires. So now you understand the car's special name and color. And you probably also understand why the special racing stripe almost looks like a burnout with its cool black fade. While this classic has passed the quarter-century mark, it hasn't even reached 3k miles on the odometer yet. We're told it's only a two-family car, and everyone was friends. In fact, it was first purchased by a father for his daughter because she was born in 1996. So it was in climate-controlled storage for decades waiting for her to be old enough to enjoy it. She didn't drive it and sold the car to a family friend who has been admiring it for years. And the reason the right people have held this Pontiac in high esteem is that the history of these cars is exactly what you want. SLP's additions were done under GM's authority, they did not void the factory warranty and could be ordered through the right Pontiac dealerships almost like a factory package. However, it was not easy to get the right orders allocated to SLP, and therefore, the total production is only believed to be 164 over a three-year run.

The graphite gray interior goes well with the silver exterior, and the T-tops mean you can show off this full package to the world. Plus, cold-blowing air conditioning means you can keep this open to the world even in the summer without breaking a sweat. This special T/A also came loaded with the best factory features, like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, a cup holder center console, dual airbags, power steering, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo with seven-band equalizer. The leather bucket seats up front look great, and they have power lumbar support to be all-day comfortable. That combines with the sports steering wheel on a tilt column and full gauges to make for a great driving package. So you'll likely quickly add to the low odometer.

The engine bay is just as much a time capsule as the rest of the car, right down to the decals. SLP worked their magic on the 5.7-liter LT1, including the air induction and high-flow exhaust for an advertised 310 horsepower in 2006. And the six-speed manual transmission puts you in the center of all the action. Plus, not only did SLP upgrade the handling, but there's also a Bilstein shock package. Add in four-wheel power disc brakes and this is a fun performance machine that's also an all-around good driver.

The sale comes complete with the build sheet, dealer invoice, loan info, warranty pamphlet, and docs case w/keychain. This is rarity, power distinction, and a great story all offered for an affordable price. Call today!!!
