The Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. Introduced in the same year as its platform-sharing cousin the Chevrolet Camaro, the Firebird was seen as a long-term competitor to the successful Ford Mustang. The fourth generation Firebird amplified the aerodynamic styling initiated by the previous generation; while the floorplan remained largely the same, ninety percent of the Firebird's parts were all new. Major improvements included standard dual airbags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, 16-inch wheels, rack-and-pinion power steering and several non-rusting composite body panels. Throughout its fourth generation, trim levels included V6-powered Firebird, and V8-powered Formula and Trans Am.
This superb 25th Anniversary edition is presented in white with blue stripe running from front to rear. Its white leather interior is in superb condition as is the exterior. The car was imported by the present owner in 2018 from Reno in the United States, making him only the second owner of this superb Pontiac from new. This car comes with its Targa top configuration, electric windows, CD player, air conditioning, ambient interior lighting and under car lighting. Its mighty 5.7 litre engine is mated to an automatic gearbox providing smooth gearchanges with lively performance, as one would expect. It comes with a good history and must be one of the finest on the market today.
