1991 Pontiac Firebird Formula 1LEYes, it's true! Pontiac built a few 1LE showroom stock race cars with the CC1 t-top option!
This particular car was ordered three times before it was accepted into the system and once it was the original owner added everything he could to it! I am the third owner of this car with the original owner keeping it up until just a couple of years ago first in Wyoming and then Florida where he retired. Not having A/C he was no longer using it and sold it to the second owner who started with the interior restoration on the car - I purchased it earlier this year and completed the restoration on it.
Pontiac 1LE production is very low with only 172 units total being produced. The breakdown is as follows:
1988 - 3 Trans Am's
1989 - 26 Trans Am's
1990 - 4 Trans Am's
1991 - 46 Formulas, 62 Trans Am's
1992 - 22 Formulas, 9 Trans Am's
Of the 46 Formulas built in 1991, 9 of those were used for Firehawk production, 27 were 5 speeds like this one and 8 of them were built with t-tops! By comparison, Chevrolet built 478 1LE Camaros in 1991 alone with over 1,300 total being produced in the 5 years they were built. NONE of the camaro 1LE cars produced were ever built with T-TOPS! Rare in this case is an understatement!
This car is LOADED! Although the 1LE cars were traditionally low option "strippers" for showroom stock, this car comes with Power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise, tilt, the upgraded stereo, rear defroster, 4 way adjustable driver's seat and the T-Tops. It also includes all of the 1LE performance options which include the oversized Borg Warner Corvette calipers on the Caprice rotors & bearings, specific spindles, shocks/struts, the World Class MK6 T-5 with specific gearing, the JG1 Aluminum Drive Shaft, N10 dual high flow cat exhaust, N64 aluminum spare tire, G92 3:45 performance rear gears and a whole lot more. It comes with excellent documentation with boxes & binders of receipts, is completely numbers matching and a blast to drive.
