Lot details
Registration No: K322VCC
Chassis No: 2G2FV22P4P2208624
Mot Expiry: July 2020

- 5.7 litre LT1 V8, LSD, Sports Exhaust, Auto, claimed 0-60mph in 6 sec and 155mph (limited)

- Built in Sainte-Therese, Quebec and imported to the UK during 1997, Black leather, 80k miles

- Over £2,000 spent during the current three-year ownership, MOT'd till July 2020

Built at General Motors' Saint-Therese plant in Quebec, this range-topping, V8-powered Trans Am model was imported to the UK during 1997. Purchased by the vendor from Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialist Ghost Motor Works Ltd some nineteen years later for £4,750, the Firebird had just been treated to a service, skimmed rear discs, new tyres (x2) and recharged air-conditioning. Maintained by Anglo American Filming Vehicles Ltd of Nottingham during the current ownership, the four-seater Coupe has had attention paid to its limited slip differential and exhaust / cooling / fuel systems plus a new battery at a cost of over £2,000. Starting readily upon inspection, the Pontiac has the bark to match its bite courtesy of a big bore, sports exhaust, while other upgrades include a MSD ignition system, K&N air filter and front strut tower brace. Having covered c.6,000 miles aboard 'K322 VCC' (the odometer now shows 80,000 miles), the vendor rates its 5.7 litre V8 engine, automatic transmission, bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment and interior trim as 'very good'. Though, he believes that the air-conditioning needs re-gassing. An affordable piece of high-performance Americana, this imposing Firebird Trans Am is offered for sale with a history file, Haynes repair manual, 1993 Pontiac Firebird Owner's Manual, can of tyre sealing foam (in lieu of a jack / spare wheel) and MOT certificate valid until July 2020.

Introduced in 1993, the fourth-generation Firebird took various of its styling cues from Pontiac's 'Banshee IV' concept car. Faster, better handling and more aerodynamic than its predecessor, the newcomer benefited from the adoption of rack-and-pinion power steering, improved front suspension, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and several composite body panels. Shared with the C4 Corvette, the 5.7-litre LT1 V8 engine fitted to the range topping Trans Am model was credited with developing some 275bhp / 330lbft of torque; outputs sufficient for a claimed 0-60mph time of 6.2 seconds and a 155mph (limited) top speed. Of the 14,112 Pontiac Firebirds made for the 1993 model year 5,121 were Trans Am models.
