Selling my car that I ordered new in February 1999. It is VERY low option. The only options selected were the MN6 manual transmission and the Eagle GSC tires. It is a rare Hard Top and has a cloth interior and manual adjust seats.

Car has sat for almost 3 years. Injury and finances are making me move on. All it needs is some time and effort and a couple odds and ends to get back running. New owner will need to decide about intended use and Auto vs rebuild the 6 speed.

General:
1999 Hard Top Formula Firebird. 114,000 miles on the chassis.
Originally Navy Blue Metallic, now John Deere Blitz Black Matte Black.
--included is more paint...should be enough to paint the whole car again.--
Taupe (Tan), manual adjust interior.
6-speed, factory replacement.
--Started grinding when shifting fast or Power Shifting into 2nd. Worked fine under regular driving. Probably needs new synchros.--
VFN Flat hood with pins.
--Will need to be cut to clear taller intake. '73 Shaker hood scoop included.--

Engine: 19,000 miles on engine.
LQ4 block filled to water pump ports with Hard Blok.
4.07" bore.
Compstar 4.100" crank.
Eagle 6.125" rods.
Weisco pistons.
LS9 head gaskets.
ARP head and main studs (Mains honed)
L92 heads, stock valves, stock chambers, port matched to intake.
@10.8:1 compression.
Victor Jr. EFI intake manifold port matched to heads.
Accufab 4150 4BBL throttle body.
Coil relocation to cowl with MSD 8.5mm wires.
Edelbrock fuel rails
42 lb injectors
Walbro 255 pump and Racetronix hotwire kit.
Spohn Solid motor mounts.
Alternator relocated to pass. cylinder head.

Trans:
Stock factory internals.
--Probably needs synchros...was grinding on power shifts.--
Pro 5.0 Power Tower shifter with shortened handle.
Tick Master Cylinder.
Monster Stage II clutch and flywheel.
Poly trans mount.
Denny's Nitrous Ready 3" steel driveshaft.
1350 U-joints.

Brakes:
stock replacement discs.
Hawk Pads.
No ABS.
Line Lock and proportioning valve.
--Line Lock buton on shifter ball. Power and Arm need to be rewired.--

Exhaust:
No EGR or AIR
Pacesetter Race 1 3/4" headers. Pacesetter coating. Surface rust.
Dual 3" electric cut-outs.
Custom 2 1/2" true dual exhaust built by me.
(2) Hooker Aerochamber mufflers at rear bumper.
Mild steel.
--**@2" extension needed at passenter collector...I don't know what happened there**--

Rearend:
Moser 9" housing and 31 spine axles.
Strange center section with 3.89 gears and Detroit Locker.
Rear LCA lowering brackets that I think were not installed correctly.
--**should probably be removed and reinstalled**--

Chassis:
Front bumper gutted, no hood latch.
No front sway bar.
Spohn Tubular Adj Upper Control Arms--**Need adjustments**--.
Strange Double Adjustable front shocks.
1" Drag rear sway bar.
BMR adjustable Rod/poly LCAs.

Spohn weld in SFCs.
New BMR Adjustable panhard rod not installed.
Cut factory rear springs. ??TOO LOW??
--Factory WS6 rear springs for heater hose mod--.
Long wheel studs Front and Rear.
17x9.5 and 17x11 Torque Thrust II Classic wheels.
Front tires need replacing (Outer crown wear)
New Nitto 555 (NOT R) 315/35/17 rear tires.

Misc:
Interior trim present but semi removed. Was planning on making the car a weekend only street/strip toy but injury and finances changed that.
A/C works but I am sure needs maintenance.
Innovate LC1 and gauge in the A pillar.
Grant GT Classic steering wheel.
HPT 2.24 and laptop...I am not sure about transferring to new owner.

Over $12,000 in just parts. Asking $7,000.

PM's replied.
I do not really have a "Bottom Dollar" I will accept. I have already dropped the price twice.
I do not "have" to sell.
