For Sale: 1999 Pontiac Firebird in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

We all know that big horsepower and small price adds up to lots of fun, but few cars delivered the bang for the buck of the late-model F-body. This red-hot 1999 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 is one of those rare, 100% stock and unabused specimens and shows an incredibly low 28,925 miles and only 2-owners since new, so you know it was never anyone's daily driver. If you missed your chance to get one of these bad-ass cars 20 years ago, here it is again!

There's no mistaking the fourth-generation Trans Am, with its hidden headlights and twin nostril hood force-feeding the LS1 V8 underneath. Finished in electric Bright Red, the optimum color choice for a Trans Am, this modern muscle-coupe looks like a million bucks set on fire. It still has that predatory curb appeal after all these years, with a timeless design that made it an instant classic and catapulted it to muscle-car cult favorite during a time when most American automakers were more concerned with MPGs than HP ratings. Still as shiny as it was at the turn of the century, this F-body has been properly maintained and shows little evidence of having been driven hard, in fact it barely looks like it's been driven at all, which makes sense as it's barely logged over 1K miles every year since new. Other than a few minor swirl marks left behind after car washes (could you blame anyone for wanting to rub on this beauty every weekend?) there are virtually no signs of use, and even those could be remedied with a buff-and-wax. The Trans Am WS6's ultra-aggressive front fascia with those trademark fog lights really gets the party started up front, the sculpted, scooped, and flared profiles are one-of-a-kind even in the F-Body game, and the muscle-toned rear end with integrated spoiler and dual exhaust cut-outs is the last thing most challengers will see as this coupe goes flying by. With the headlights flipped down, the honeycomb taillights lit up red, and the T-tops off and stored behind the rear seats, there aren't many better-looking cars out on the road.

GM installed sporty, light-gray leather buckets when it was built, and they naturally remain well preserved in this low-mile Trans Am. The supportive bucket seats are both grippy in the corners and comfortable for all-day drives. Usually, these cars start to show lots of wear on the driver's bolster, but it's clear that someone was exceptionally careful whenever they got in and out of the car, because it's still quite nice with barely any comfort marks to even speak of. GM Light-gray upholstery tended to discolor throughout the years, but in this Pontiac all the soft stuff is very uniform, super-clean, and about as clean as you'll ever see in a 23-year-old vehicle. Carpets, door panels, and the dash and center console are all great, and it appears that the back seat has never been used. All Trans Ams had round A/C vents and orange lighting on the dash, giving it a very high-tech look, and all Trans Ams came only one way: loaded. That means cold A/C, power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt wheel, traction control, ABS, dual airbags, and power seats, plus keyless entry. Everything works as it should on this one-heck, even the floor mats are correct, and the 6-speed manual shifter inside the center console practically taunts the driver to go bang through the gears. A powerful Pontiac Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo with built-in equalizer sounds awesome, even at full bore with the T-tops off, but at that point you'll probably want to enjoy the V8's song anyway.

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 with a factory-rating of 320 horsepower. 100% stock under the hood with signs of scheduled maintenance seen throughout, the engine bay of this car is like an anatomy textbook for future restorers - with original markings, fasteners, and decals still in factory fresh condition. The 6-speed manual transmission snaps off quick shifts, but with an overdrive gear this is still a great cruiser and if you can somehow keep your foot out of it (good luck), the LS1 can pull down more than 20 MPG on the highway. Underneath, it's obvious that this car has not seen foul weather as it's incredibly solid and only shows minor surface scale, and it wears factory chrome wheels wrapped in 275/40/17 Kumho performance radials.

History tells us that the cars that collectors cherish are often the ones with the lowest mileage, so here's your second chance to own an American icon. Documented with its original window sticker, dealer invoice, factory buildsheet, maintenance records, and a clean vehicle history report, this is one special Trans Am WA6. Call today!
