Here is a chance to grab a beautiful piece of GM’s discontinued Pontiac brand, as a very clean 2001 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with less than 700 miles on the clock is being auctioned on Bring a Trailer.
The muscle car is finished in blue over gray leather and powered by GM’s 5.7L LS1 V8, rated at 325 horsepower and 345 pound-feet of torque. The atmospheric eight is paired to the familiar four-speed automatic transmission.
The cabin equipment includes cruise control, A/C, AM/FM/CD stereo with equalizer, power windows, mirrors, and door locks. A multi-function steering wheel frames a 155-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 7K-RPM redline, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, and fuel level.
Outside, the car features five-spoke 16-inch polished alloy wheels wearing 245/50 Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, pop-up headlights, fog lights, removable T-top panel with included sunshades, a rear decklid spoiler, a power antenna, dual exhaust tips, and Trans Am badges.
Even though the car appears clean inside and out with pristine paint and a clean engine bay, Bring a Trailer reports that there is a ding on the passenger-side rear quarter panel, which can be seen in provided photos.
According to Bring a Trailer, this Trans Am (VIN 2G2FV22GX12101066) remained on an MSO until being acquired by the seller in 2009 and later titled in June 2021. It is being offered with a manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin dated March 16th, 2001, a clean CARFAX report, and a clean Connecticut title in the seller’s name. The digital odometer shows 697 miles, approximately 350 of which were added by the seller.
As of this writing, the current bid for Lot #53245 is $16,300. The auction ends on Monday, August 16th, 2021 at 17:05 Eastern Standard Time.
