Default How many made like mine?

Just curious where's the best place to look about seeing how many 1995 Red Firebird Trans am's convertibles were made in 1995 with White leather interior. I look daily on E-bay and been to several Trans am nationals and only found 1 other like mine the last several years. Has anybody seen them? I know I haven't seen hardly any but where should I look? People ask me and I don't know. Thanks

Default Very few

2,402 was the total production for all 1995 Trans Am convertibles. I don't have a further breakdown handy but you can safely figure that half that number no longer exist since it is 11 years old already (due to accidents and attrition). Now think of all the black ones and white ones, etc...Maybe there are 200-300 red 1995 convertibles left and even fewer with a white interior. Maybe you are down to 150 left in existence!! That's why you won't see many. There might be an average of 3 or 4 left in each state in the U.S.. Pretty rare in my book!

Thanks for your input. I plan to keep a hold of it and it has 95,000 miles on it now. That was the only reason I bought it because its rare being red and white and there's just to many mustangs. I hope it holds up for a few more years? I only put about 5,000 miles on it a year (had it 3 years now) I do well at car shows since its fixed up to show. Thanks

Default Many years left in it

From what we have all read about LT1 and LS1 engines, your mileage is NOTHING!! (unless you are real hard on it). With 5,000 miles a year you can keep that baby forever. I saw your pictures on another post and you have an incredible ride! Your thinking is right on the money in regards to Mustangs. Too many for that rarity factor. Yours is very special in that condition, a 'head turner' now and from here on out.

Hello just a thought here..... IN PAPERWORK DOCUMENTED FROM PONTIAC...That I have there were only 458 with the "WHITE" leather...The WHITE leather was a "CONVERTIBLE" option ONLY.

And KATIE my PURPLE with WHITE leather 6 speed convertible is only 1 of 54 sprayed in my purple for 1995.

Hope this helps you.
