    Question Value of a 10th Anniversary Firehawk Convertible

    I've thought off and on about selling my Hawk but I don't know of anything I can replace it with that would be as unique. Yes, I think my car is unique.

    There were only 9, 10th Anniversary convertibles built for the US. It has less than 25k on the Odometer and it's as clean as it was when I bought it new. I have most every SLP extra you could think of with this car. I even have a matching baseball cap, chair and blanket (try to find these anywhere).

    Anyway, I figured most of you would be in the know since NADA and KBB don't account for limited production Firehawks.

    I would say its worth $40k. But, in reality we know we never get what a collectible is really worth. $25k - $30k is prob more realistic. Wait till its a real classic and you should make some $$$

    +1 hold on to it for another 10-20 years. Right now is probably when its at its lowest value. You will regret it if you sell it.

    Does your car have a 6-speed? If so, I'll trade you even-up for my '98 WS6 w/ only 15,400mi on it.

    1993 Firehawk

    Thumbs up

    Your car sounds like a definite keeper bro.
    I bought my 1993 Firehawk in 99 with 43K miles...It has 160K miles on her now...and it knows it.
    I'd never think about selling it, despite it needing an overhaul, etc, etc...
    I still get compliments on that old car to this day.

    But yeah, the car market is way down right now on these cars.
    I just picked up a 1998 TransAm Convertible for $5000...

    Yes, it has a 6-speed. Sure you wouldn't want me to throw in some cash to sweeten the deal?

    I guess not since no vert owner in one of these nine is in Dallas,TX area?
    http://www.firehawkowners.com/options/convertibles.html
    Yes, I am a member and listed there. I am the member from Boise, Idaho. I originally purchased the car in Dallas, Texas and towed it back home to Boise when I relocated there.

    Actually, only seven of the nine are listed there. I know of one more that went to California from Idaho but it was stripped of all it's 10th Anniversary badging and had ugly, chromed, 20", spoked wheels in place of the gold Firehawk wheels. Can only imagine what happened to that one.

    Yes, it is the same.

    I compiled the list on Firehawk.org to this. Wasn't too techy or difficult but it's a quick find for me.

    * I’ve seen this car in person. It was originally ordered and sold from a dealership in Caldwell, Idaho. The owner proceeded to remove the gold wheels and replaced them with 20” ugly chrome wheels. All 10th Anniversary decals have been removed from the car with the exception of the Firehawk door decals. Last I knew of the car was it was sold to a dealership in California in the same condition as I stated, approximately 4 years ago.

    ** I Have no information on this missing US convertible Hawk

    *** Where the Canadian cars fall into place with the production numbers I have no idea. But they are all designated with a C0** so they are numbered differently than their US counterparts. There are 7 Canadian convertibles.

    Yeah, probably should. But I'm in the middle of buying a new house so extra cash laying around isn't something I have handy right now. Heck, I'd toss-in my CF tonneau and sub-box!

    You've got a sweet machine there, probably the only f-bod I'd ever consider trading mine for.

    Well, I wasn't out to impress anyone and I never claimed that mine was the X-Men car, which is a t-top hawk.

    I was only asking what people thought the value might be. But thanks for your negative input anyway.

    I'm sure he just misread your post... as did I actually...

    and i was not trying to say that you were being like a posh stuck ass there 10th... As i stated cajun was all about seeing your door and though I as prolly you were thinking of a 10th anny door with the gold 10th emblem... which is impressive, but its not x men door...

    -me



    But seriously... if you want to sell your car 10th i would definately like to talk to you about it... I just need to get this damn vette sold first...
