1990 1LE Firebird on Craigslist

Pretty cool car. Would buy if I had the money, lol

https://newhaven.craigslist.org/cto/6145551966.html

Full text;
"1 of only 4 1LE cars built by Pontiac for the 1990 model year, sold through GM's supplier/subsidiary system to it's first owner who worked at GM Chassis in Flint. Built by John Bennett for SCCA American Sedan class with the 91/92 Formula body panels and one of Pontiac's ultra rare aluminum hoods. It was raced by Jim Christ of the Toy Store in Florida in the early 90's including multiple poles, wins and track records at Road Atlanta, Sebring, Daytona and Homestead Miami. Currently restored to original race appearance under Sunoco sponsorship but legal for vintage racing with full cage, current net & belts, spec motor, super t-10 4 speed and Ford 9 inch locker. Full fire system, Accusump, fuel cell, spares and SCCA log book.

With over 2 million Firebirds & Camaros built between 1982 and 1992 there were only 1532 1LE cars built. Chevrolet produced 1,360 of them with Pontiac only building 172. This car has never been titled but still retains it's original VIN tag. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a rare factory race car that has been purpose built for the task and has excellent substantiated history.

Offered at $24,500 obo - interesting trades considered. Send an e-mail with your phone number & I will call you back. I can assist with delivery if needed for a fee."

He lives in Conn., and is a regular on ThirdGen.Org. I was at a car show last year (Pypes) and saw the car up close. He also has a build thread that shows how he bought it and how it was NOT a total restore, but details like the correct decals and use of the yellow color was made to look just like it did when the car was professionally raced. Not a show piece, but Ultra Rare for someone looking to own the real thing.

This Firebird isn't one of mine. It has been up for sale for about a year; I have been following it on CL and other sites and it appears to be a super clean car. I would have been all over it when it first surfaced but I'm just a Camaro guy. However, I was going to see if I could take a look in person just to go over it and document it for what it is before it possibly disappears into obscurity.
