Pick of the Day: 1992 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Convertible

“Life is too short to drive something boring,” reads today’s featured listing in the ClassicCars.com classifieds. And we wholeheartedly agree! In an era when autonomy – and anonymity – seem to be revered characteristics, there is something to be said for being behind the wheel of a wedge-shaped green sports car from the 1990s with the pop-up headlights illuminated and the wind in your hair.

“With a limited production of just 663 cars, it’s a droptop that we are very proud to offer!” the dealer says. “It’s got just over 30,000 actual miles meaning you can rest assured that you’re getting a car that has had all service documented and retained, a super click body with one of the best colors to complement the top and interior, and an interior that looks almost showroom new!”

This Firebird comes from the final year of the third generation, which had been around since 1982. Relatively fewer units were sold for 1992 when compared to prior years, as some buyers were holding out for the fourth generation on the horizon. The flipside was that since the existing platform had been in production for a decade, engineers had worked out most of the known “kinks” – including adding some sound-deadening material for the final year to further mitigate any noise, vibration, or harshness in the driving experience. It could be said that this was the “last, the best of all the game” for third-gens.

The Dark Green Metallic (paint code 45) body pairs nicely with the gold-accented 16-inch “crosslace” alloy wheels. This Firebird Trans Am came well-equipped for its time, with options including fog lamps and a spoiler. While the car remains largely stock both inside and out, the audio system has been upgraded with a Kenwood CD stereo and a subwoofer for optimized sound.

Power up front comes from a tuned-port fuel-injected “LB9” 5.0-liter V8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. Ratings for the powertrain in this configuration were 205 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque from the factory. There’s plenty of chassis technology to make sure the ride is compliant and controlled, including the WS6 Special Performance Package, a rally-tuned suspension, and power front disc brakes. Best of all, the odometer shows just 31,213 miles.

“When the top goes down, that’s when the real fun begins,” the dealer says. Get your sunglasses and your audio playlist ready, because this car is ready for summertime cruising shenanigans.

The asking price is $24,500, which includes manufacturer’s literature, the uninstalled original stereo, replaced spare parts, and service records. The dealer is able to assist with financing and shipping.
