    Super rare firebird?

    Hi, this is my first time posting on this forum. I own a 2000 Firebird Formula WS-6, not a trans am at all. I looked at the "show ur bird" topic and I haven't seen my car yet. The spoiler is completely attached, so it has no gap, it came stock from the factory with ram air. It also says firebird on the side, and no where does it say trans-am. I did some research, and my car was made in canada, and only 236 of this car were ever made. I also read another post somewhere that stated that this was possibly the rarest firebird ever made. I am trying to sell it because of economical reasons(gas prices) plus I don't want to put anymore miles on it. it has 28k miles on it in brand new condition, all original with flowmasters. brand new eagle f1's. I tried putting it on auto trader and collector car trader, but they only allow me a few lines of description, so I can't really explain the rarity of my car.

    So if you have any suggestions on how I should go about selling it so I can get the most out of my money, and draw attention to my car. Also, any comments or references you can find about my car would be helpful!

    Below is my listing located on Autotrader.com

    Now, this is my opinion only, but I honestly think you've have a hard time getting more than $15,000 for something like that.

    Yea, they made very few WS6 Formula's. But doesn't make it worth that much more.

    You can find comparable value on KBB, NADA, Edmunds, & other websites for a fair market value of the car.

    I did a KBB search & found Reatil @ $16215, & Private Party @ $12,250, & that's by adding all the options I could find. Probably should have gone back & removed the leather option, but what the hell, ...

    Edmunds gave me this result, ...

    2000 Pontiac Firebird 2 Dr Formula Coupe
    Trade-In / Private Party / Dealer Retail
    National Base Price $8,519 $9,894 $11,242
    Optional Equipment $1,321 $1,657 $2,207
    Compact Disc Changer $105 $132 $176
    Traction Control $44 $56 $74
    T-Tops - Glass $177 $221 $295
    Keyless Entry System $26 $33 $44
    Leather Seats $102 $128 $170
    Ram Air Performance Package $266 $333 $444

    Color Adjustment

    Regional Adjustment

    Mileage Adjustment
    28,000 miles $1,324 $1,324 $1,324
    Condition Adjustment
    Outstanding $648 $718 $835
    Total $11,918 $13,715 $15,747


    Certified Used Vehicle $16,791



    NADA, I found this, ...

    Average Trade-In / Average Retail
    Base Price

    $12,475 $14,850

    Mileage

    28,000 miles $1,600 / $1,600

    Options

    T-Top (Std. Trans Am) $625 / $700

    TOTAL PRICE $14,700 / $17,150



    So, I guess my estimate of $15,000 could be a bit low, I'll change my opinion & say you'd be lucky to get $17,000!!!

    Good Luck tho, Nice car, ..., And welcome a'board', ...

    The problem with your listing isn't the body of the text, it's the price. You are not going to get anywhere near $25k for it. They made 236 WS6 Formulas in 2000, but they also made them in 99 and 98, and there is nothing that makes the 2000s really any more desirable than a 99 or 98. Plus, they made Formula Firehawks every year from 1998-2002, which are generally more desirable than WS6 Formulas. A WS6 Formula is relatively rare, but they're not so rare that they command a premium. Most buyers anyway prefer the WS6 Trans Ams, which are a dime a dozen. If you want to sell your car, lower the price about $10k.
    It is a beautiful car though.

    I think you have a beautiful car and i do agree that 22 might be a little bit high but iwouldnt go lower than 17 at all and definately not 12. Its your car so sell it for what you want and maybe if it doesnt sell youll see the bright side about owning a firebird and keep it anyways

    There's a red 98 WS6 formy for sale near me with 8600 miles on it and the owner is asking $17k or best offer. I'd love to have it, but don't know if I'd be happy with it.

    It's OK

    I sold it for 21,000, I guess it just takes luck in finding the right buyer(even if he might be not to smart haha)

    thanks for your help... even though i wasn't going to go under 20k, i'd rather put it on blocks and let it appreciate.

    I hope he didn't just buy it because you told him it was the rarest bird ever made

    lol

    no, all I said was that it was rare because they only made that model from 98-2000 and in 2000 only 230 were made. he didn't even care, he wanted it for his son's first car... some rich lawyer from san fransisco. I would never drive my firebird in san fransisco.....

    when i said "even if he might be not to smart haha" i was referring to lack of research because you can find transams on e-bay and autotrader from 10k to 15k all day long.
