For Sale: 2000 Pontiac Firebird in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

It shouldn't be a surprise that this absolutely viscous, low-mile 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a full-blow classic car these days. The GM Sebring Silver Metallic paint is simply jaw-dropping wrapped around an aggressive body kit that transforms the car into a snarling, sinister street fighter begging for a challenge. With a powerful 5.7L LS1 V8 under the hood, a performance-built 4-speed automatic w/overdrive handling the precise gearshifts, and an upgraded, pro-street style suspension, this 4th generation T/A has earned its rightful position among American muscle car royalty. It's a big performer that more than delivers on the promises made by its outrageous bodywork.

The Trans Am had it all: looks, handling, and horsepower, but there's nothing so good that it can't be made better. The swoopy Trans Am shape just begs for a flashy shade of paint, and factory Code 9966 Sebring Silver Metallic was an excellent choice on such a sexy design, as it only enhances, not overshadows, the beautifully sculpted T/A design and all its dynamic lines. Remarkably, this T/A is still wearing its original finish, which proves beyond a doubt that this beauty has been absolutely babied throughout the 53,514 miles that it's been driven. It's even shinier in person than in our pictures, with light seeming to dance off the panels, and the only real imperfections we could find were TINY chips on the lower front end. Certainly nothing that takes away from the killer curb appeal of this coupe, which includes striking lower-body ground effects, that aggressive and fully functional Ram Air hood, fender vents, and the big spoiler and lower diffuser out back. When all those slick elements work together on a lowered T/A body, the effect is simply jaw-dropping in person and you'll probably find yourself walking around the car over and over to watch the way the light plays over the car's angles and curves. It's incredibly cool.

The interior is mostly stock, but the Pontiac designers got it right on the first try. Supportive black leather buckets anchor the interior, and the elegant hides (complete with custom 'WS6'embroidery in the headrests) are in great shape with only a few comfort marks on the driver's chair. The center console, wide dashboard, and other trim bits are in very good condition, with only a couple small cracks on the stock door panels to report. Custom carbon-fiber accents in the center stack, console, and door panels add a touch of performance inside, and because the work was done right it will never look dated. As Pontiac's top-of-the-line, it's also loaded with cold A/C, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and a comprehensive factory gauge package ahead of the driver that's been augmented with a trio of aftermarket dials incorporated into the driver's A-pillar. There's a stock 500-watt Pontiac Monsoon stereo system in the center of the dash that still sounds great, and with standard dual airbags and ABS brakes, you can actually feel confident when banging through corners in this delightful monster. Add in plush carpets and matching floor mats, tinted windows, a neatly finished trunk with accessory mat, and the original darkly tinted T-top inserts, and you get a car that's ready for summer fun.

The 5.7L LS1 V8 engine became famous overnight, and anyone who worried about the passing of the small block torch need not have been concerned. Its aluminum construction shaved precious pounds from the nose of the car, while it cranked out more power than any small block in history. The engine bay has been dressed for show, with custom WS6 valve covers, miscellaneous performance decals, an SLP air collector with a K&N air filter. An additional cold air induction set up in the lower front grill pushes more cold air into the ported throttle body intake and LS6 intake manifold. Gorgeous paint and mirrors under the hood mean this baby wants to be shown off, and when the key cranks the Borla 304 exhaust system with electric cut-outs kicks in from the Custom American Racing Headers, crowds quickly gather. The 4-speed automatic is performance built with a 3600-stall convertor and auxiliary trans cooler to better handle the LS power, and it snaps off quick shifts but is still a great cruiser that pulls down decent MPGs. The car's been lowered 1-inch, and the performance-spec suspension includes Hotchkis upgrades, subframe connectors, front strut tower, adjustable shocks with a driveshaft safety loop to help plant it to the road, with responsive power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes giving this beast rather pleasant road manners. Underneath, it's obvious that this car has never been mistreated and it wears flashy chrome wheels wrapped in staggered 245/40/18 front and 285/40/18 rear Nitto blackwall radials.
