INTERESTING / IMPORTANT VEHICLE HISTORY AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS:

1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 1LE/R7U, one of the most collectible and rare Trans Am’s ever! The 1LE Trans Am production number is 26, only 17 were R7U’s made for the Canadian Players Challenge race series. This car is one of the only truly collectable 3rd gen firebirds made. To compare: 1989 1LE’s = 26. 1989 Pace Car Trans Am’s = 1550. To order them in 1989 all of the 1LE’s were supposed to be raced, there must only be a few remaining. The fact that this one could be the only non-raced Trans Am 1 LE certainly increases its current and future collectability! Under 17,000kms! No accidents, original paint, stored indoors, unfortunately it was driven by the past owner in the rain a few times and has the typical very light surface flash rust on the un-protected parts underneath, very minor and easily brushed away and clear coated. The spoiler needs to be replaced as all spoilers of this type shrink. Other than those minor deficiencies The car looks and drives like its out of the showroom, still has the new car smell (not exaggerating). I have pictures to prove the car has not been raced. There is not a single more collectible or rare 1989 Trans Am on the planet! GM made both the Camaro Iroc 1LE and the Trans Am 1LE, there were far more of the Camaro’s. The Trans Am version (this one) was so uncommon there isn’t even an article about them. You have to look-up the Camaro to learn about it and all the upgrades these cars have.

ANY ADDITIONAL PARTS, ACCESSORIES OR DOCUMENTS TO BE INCLUDED WITH SALE:

Some light flash surface rust on the normal exposed unprotected parts, easily reversed to be show ready. It drives like new with no rattles or shakes, starts and runs perfect. The spoiler needs to be replaced as all spoilers of this type shrink. I have pictures to prove the car has not been raced. The carpet was carefully lifted in the front where the roll bars would have been attached and also lifted in the rear. 100% truly un-raced. Out of the 17 R7U’s Some were destroyed during the races, some were modified further and destroyed in other series and others were just mile’d out and completely neglected. How many are remaining?
