    Thumbs up Fast and Rare 1996 Pontiac Firebird Formula WS6 *NOW ON EBAY*

    I hate to sell it, but I have a wedding coming up in October and I need it sold soon. The car is very rare: 1 of 524 Formula WS6's made in 96, 1 of 105 red Formula WS6's (SLP Build #2409 of 2577 96 TA and Formula WS6's). The silver painted WS6 wheels were only available in 1996. Every following year had polished wheels.

    The overall condition of the car is Very Good. The car is meticulously maintained ESPECIALLY the engine, which is in excellent shape. Oil is changed ever 2500 miles with Valvoline Synthetic. All work and maintenance has been done by myself INCLUDING ALL of the modifications. Car shows absolutely no signs of aging, but only has a small oil leak which is most likely the rear of the intake manifold (very common on all LT1's). The car still has incredible power all the way through the power band.

    I'm also throwing in the Kenwood CD/MP3/Sirius head unit which in installed and will also comes with Sirius radio all paid for until next March.

    Here are the Options:

    -6 Speed Manual Transmission

    -OBD I PCM Conversion and Tuning by Ion Soltan at

    I'm also including the stock OBDII PCM so the car can be inspected.

    I get tons of compliments on the car. It is definitely a hot looking car. But most of the comments are about the way it sounds. Here's a sound clip:

    The body is in Very Good shape. Paint still shines and looks glossy with no signs of fading and it maintained often. The color is outstanding and looks almost brand new. The car has been garage kept for most of its life. The body looks great, however there are few blemishes in the front from road pebbles. There is a small dent on the passenger side rear quarter panel, which can be easily removed. There are also some small scrapes behind the front driver side wheel and on the T-tops and chips on the driver side door. I did a basic repair on all of the damage so they are very un-noticeable. Besides these, the car looks amazing. There are pictures of all of the damage in the photos below.

    The engine has about 40,000 miles on it since the cam, rockers, lifter, pushrods, valve springs and intake manifold were replaced along with all of the gaskets. The Optispark, wires, ignition coil, ignition control module, MAP sensor, MAF sensor, and front main seal all have less than 20,000 miles on them. The car's actual mileage is somewhere around 120,000 - 130,000, but since since I did the gears a few years ago the speedo has read about 5-7 mph faster and Odometer reads 163,000. The tune I had wasn’t exact for the speedo, but I never bothered with changing because I planned on never selling this car. But again, the car looks, runs, and drives like it is brand new.
