The newly-created pony-car segment heated up in the mid- to late-1960s with the Ford Mustang gaining sales momentum and other manufacturers moving in with similar models. General Motors’ response to the challenge was the F-body platform of two-door sportscars, and the Camaro and Firebird were born in 1967. Three decades later, the same battle raged on.
“This awesome ride was sold new in New York in 1994,” the seller states. “You would never think this car is from the Northeast by looking at it. This Trans Am is entirely stock with no modifications and was meticulously maintained through both owners.”
While a specific source for production data is not cited, the seller adds that this was one of just 68 models produced for the year in 25th Anniversary livery with automatic transmission, CD player and T-top-delete specifications. The audio system has been upgraded to an aftermarket head unit, but the original unit is included with the sale.
Two years after the initial Firebird launch in 1967, the optional handling package called the Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package was rolled out on the Firebird. The Trans Am name came from a series of street-circuit and road races that were founded in 1966 and sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). The Trans Am name went on to be associated hand-in-hand with the Firebird until the model was discontinued entirely in 2002.
Powered by the same 5.7-liter V8 as other Firebirds, this 25th Anniversary Trans Am is distinguished from its peers by its blue center stripe, special decals and unique color-matched 16-inch wheels. The interior is about as fresh as a 28-year-old car can be, with special embroidery to commemorate the anniversary. The odometer shows just over 65,000 miles.
“White leather is in great condition, seats have no cracking or splits, dash is perfect, as well as the headliner and everything else,” the seller states.
Included with the car is an original window sticker showing the $995 25th Anniversary package. The owner’s manual booklet contains a notepad, a calculator and a pen – all specific to 25th Anniversary Trans Ams.
“Ready for shows or a great addition to a collection,” the listing notes.
The seller is asking $19,850 or best offer for this commemorative-edition ‘bird.
