Interesting on the window sticker they called the 1LE option the "Autocross Package", then below where they deleted equipment referred to 1LE.

That's actually one of the 3 White '99 1LEs built of the total 20.

i saw it and it looks just like my car , i love it , i wonder what the reserve is on it . Also ive never seen the door panels like that with the crank with that style door panel . The windows up down plate that was blank was new to me too . But very sweet too bad it has that many miles on it . Anyone notice it was missing the egr . I wonder what else was done to it .

The 1LE's were lightened up by not having any weight adding accessories like; "power" windows, door locks, antenna, alarm, etc.

EGR is off, and it has headers, also comes with all the original parts as stated in the eBay listing.

More info on the 1LE's below

1LE WS6 Formula
#5 FIREBIRD FORMULA

This was the shocker of the day. This car just may be the quickest stock Firebird of all time. And when you consider its $26,000 price tag, the cheapest of all 13 cars, the Firebird easily wins "bang for the buck" title.

How do we explain this Formula's awesome performance? How can we explain its 13.15-second ET and 108.27 mph trap speed, which is more than two-tenths of a second and 2 mph better than the Camaro? Like we said before, we can't. However, we can guess. First: weight. This Firebird is a stripper, without heavy options like power windows, power seat, etc. Second: tolerances. Sometimes they stack up and you get a faster car. Sometimes they don't.

Whatever it was, this Ram Air Pontiac ran down the track like it was born to, spitting out the most wonderful V8 baritone tune from the tree to the traps. The LS1 engine has a wonderfully flat torque curve, but it lays down at 5500 rpm, 500 revs shy of its redline. Shifting there netted us our best time.

And what sweet shifts they are.

Flatfoot shift Second and this Formula has enough grunt to lay down two 10-ft. stripes on the asphalt. You can bark the dogs in Third as well. We did miss one shift, however, when our sweaty palm slipped off the Firebird's plastic baby-butt-smooth shift ****.
