1996 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 6-Speed
Current Bid: $3,000 (USD) by: Casey
This 1996 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 is an all-original, unmodified sports coupe with removable T-tops, Ram Air Performance and Handling Packages, a dual exhaust system, and power convenience options. It is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and wears newer tires. Finished in Flame Red over a black leather interior, this WS6 is now offered with a clean CARFAX report, service records, an original window sticker, and a clear Ohio title in the seller’s name.
The body is finished in Flame Red (81) and the seller reports that the paint is original. Features include a Ram-Air hood, pop-up headlamps, removable T-tops, and a rear wing with an integrated brake lamp. The seller notes that there is no evidence of rust, but reports that the hood has some areas where the clear coat is peeling (also noted in photos). In addition, there is a small dent on the passenger side rear quarter panel and a crack on the passenger side taillight (also noted in photos).
Factory 17” 5-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in newer 275/40 tires with about 2k miles. This Trans Am is equipped with the Ram Air Performance and Handling package, which consists of stiffer sway bars and coil springs as compared to traditional Firebirds.
The interior is fitted with black leather bucket seats as well as matching door panels, dash, and carpet. The factory 10-speaker AM/FM/CD head unit with equalizer is installed, as are air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, and power door locks. The seller reports that the air conditioning does not currently hold a charge, the driver-side window does not operate smoothly, there is a small crack on the dashboard, and a tear is present in the rear seat upholstery.
Instrumentation is framed by a tilt steering wheel and includes a 155-mph speedometer, 7k tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, voltage, and fuel level. The 6-digit mechanical odometer shows approximately 99k miles, which the seller asserts is accurate.
The 5.7-liter LT1 V8 is original to the vehicle and is reported to have been meticulously maintained. It was factory-rated at 305 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.
The CARFAX report shows two Ohio owners and service notes documenting replacement of the radiator and a cooling system flush in 2014. The sale includes the original window sticker and maintenance records. A video is available for viewing below.
