For Sale:  1996 Pontiac Firebird - $10,500   https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/630465851305446/


Car has been completely gone through and is race-ready.  Great car for Champcar, Lemons, WRL, and/or Lucky Dog Racing League.

The engine was completely rebuilt by a professional racing engine builder and has 1 weekend on it at Road America.  The transmission was completely rebuilt by Midwest Transmissions in Zumbrota, MN and has about 3 hours on it at Road America.  The rear-end is a Detroit Truetrac Differential.


  • 5.7L LT1 Engine
  • T56 6-speed manual Transmission
  • Aluminum Driveshaft
  • 18” Corvette wheels
  • Upgraded front brakes to Brembo/Chevrolet 4-piston calipers with Frozen Rotors
  • JAZ racing fuel cell
  • Fiberglass hood
  • Sparco racing seat
  • IMPACT 5-point seat belts with wish-bone shoulder harness for HANS

The only items out-of-date at this time is the driver’s window net and the Fire Suppression Bottle needs to be recertified.


This vehicle has never been a street car.  I purchased it from Dan Lipperini at RaceLabz in 2015 and have run it in ChumpCar (now ChampCar) endurance races.  I have the car’s original SCCA and NASA log books including the required log book pictures.  It’s first race was at the SCCA Runoffs at Mid-Ohio in the T1 class on October 7, 1996.  The car was first driven by Grant Carter from 1996 through 1998.  Then the drivers were Terry Eskind, Thomas Oates, Richard Devaney and Steven Bessert all in SCCA from 2000 through 2006.  Steven Bessert also raced this car in the NASA series in 2007, 2008, and 2011.
