Classic Car Overview
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is excited to offer this 1990 Pontiac Firebird Bandit II for sale. This car has averaged less than 1,800 miles annually, but it looks like it has done far less. The original red bright red paint retains a level of gloss and shine that tells you it has led a well-respected and garage-kept life. And that makes sense, because these Bandit II Firebirds are a rare treat. This came from the specialty house at Choo Choo Customs the same people who created the El Camino SS when Chevy wouldnt. They added a well-integrated full body kit, quad exhaust tips, a hood scoop, and the kind of hood bird we havent seen since the muscle car days. Plus, the pinstripe surrounds all the glass and hugs the parameter of the entire lower portion of the car, and on every side, it also tells people this is a special Firebird. Then again, people were already taking notice thanks to a coordinating gold wheel package that looked just like what came on the expensive GTA Trans Am. Inside there is more of the special treatment with gold Bandit II stitching on the floor mats and headrests. And once again, their condition is so crisp and clear that this looked nearly showroom fresh. This coordinates well with the gold dash/center console and special number plaque below the glove box. This car is #85 out of 600 planned for 1990, but theres a suspension that Choo Choo never reached anywhere near full production back in the day. So their bad luck makes this rare classic is even rarer today! Plus, more than just custom, this Firebird is loaded. You get power windows, power locks, an anti-theft system, tilt wheel, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. Best of all, the air conditioning is blowing nice and cold. So even during the summer season you can feel free to take the T-tops out (even the storage bags are still in the trunk) and keep this special Bandit II open to the world. The engine bay looks just as nicely presented as the rest of the car. Good maintenance of the essentials is combined with carefully preserved components (even the factory decals are still bright!) But we know you want this for more than just for its preservation. The fuel-injected 305 cubic-inch powerplant is known for being smooth on the highway and first off the stoplight. Plus, the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive also makes this collectable the ideal cruiser - especially when paired with the power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich T/As. The sale comes complete with everything you would want on a unique classic, including the original window sticker, owners manual packet, maintenance records, and an article documenting this short production run. Cool and rare classics that are this well presented are also rarely this affordable, so dont miss your opportunity.
