Running a high speed land racer might be a bucket list item for any enthusiast. If the price is right, you can jump in and join the 200 mph club. Hopefully $50,000 is within your realm, because someone has decided to retire from the 200 mph plus club and put a for sale sign on this 1988 Pontiac Firebird. This isn’t David Hasselhoff’s KIT, that’s for sure.
The bodywork is engineered to be as aerodynamic as possible, donning the iconic land racer salad-bowl wheels, along with a hefty hood scoop and lowered body altogether. The seller has dropped a brand new Chevrolet big block motor in the Firebird, matted to a five-speed gearbox and fresh dual-disc clutch. The speed demon is also equipped with Lexan windows and cold fire bottles, but the seller states there are too many spare parts to list for the listing. Not a bad hook to get someone in contact to learn more about this incredible machine.
The car has been SpeedWeek inspected and is completely race ready. Class record for the vehicle is an astonishing 237 mph, but even the lesser experienced have pulled two-double-zeroes according to the seller.
Here’s the kicker: a state of the art trailer is included at the $50,000 price. The trailer measures in at 8.5 x 24, and it also has a full interior, cabinets, lighting, and on those hot race days, yes it’s air-conditioned.
This just may be the best deal of the year. An incredibly quick Pontiac Firebird, and a place to tinker with the car. Sounds like a plan to us.
