Car Notes
2008.06.30 Ebay

Council Bluffs, Iowa, United States

Only 45 Firehawk convertible were built in 2001 and of these only 6 were Navy Blue Metallic. This is the only one of those built with both the Bilsetin Performance Suspension ($1099) and the Auburn High-Torque Differential ($899). Add the Chrome Wheel Package ($799) and the Firehawk Floor Mattes ($199) and this is the most highly option of the six. This car cost over $40,000 new. It has every GM option including Traction Control, ABS, Power Lumbar Seats, 6-disc CD changer and then the aforementioned best of the SLP options. Truly a RARE and unique car. I bought this car earlier this year with the intention of driving it alot and maybe hot-rodding (Dual-Turbo anyone ? especially with the automatic) and then restoring it in a few years after I collected all the best parts for it I could find. And the good thing all the hard to find Firehawk stuff is here and in GREAT shape. First all the good stuff. The car is in good condition and runs solid and drives true. The door panels don't have any cracks in them ( most all of these later F-bodies seem to ), one of the wheels has a1-inch spot of curb crunch - the rest are excellent. The leather seats are fine. The top is OK - I think it was stored top-down more than I would like, it has a small section thats a little dirty. There are no dents or dings. As I stated I bought this car earlier this year with the intention of driving it while tinkering. Now I'll tell you about the stuff that needs TLC - including what the guy I bought it from didn't tell me. The car was involved in an accident early in its life. CarFax says April 2005. It does have a CLEAR title so it must not have been too bad. The front bumper / fascia was replaced and possibly the drivers front fender. The car was repainted when repaired and given "ghost flames" on the hood, fenders and doors. They go from a sort of hazy white to a purple. VERY cool - if you like that sort of thing. My kids think its awesome, my wife thinks it looks like a toy - which it is. The drivers fender does have a couple of "bubbles" in the paint. Apparently the fender wasn't prepped correctly before they painted it. It can't be rust since the fenders are plastic. From the doors back the car is super straight. The rare Firehawk hood was either undamaged or replaced with a new one. Its perfect. The interior is in very good shape with no tears or cracks in the door panels. The dash is fine. The ABS inop light is on as is the TCS off light. I haven't had it on the diagnostic computer yet, but the bet is that its a dirty sensor or loose connector. Nobody seems to think its a big problem. My opinion is that these cars shouldn't have this stuff on them anyway. Everything seems to work, although the fan makes a loud "buzz". Maybe a closed vent. Hey - I'm trying to let you know everything. No leaks. No odd noises. Shifts solid. LOTS of power. Drives true. With the Bilstein it handles like a 335hp go-cart. With the rarity - only 74 Navy Blue Firehawk convertible built from '98 - '02 and 2001 being the lowest production year - I don't think anybody could go wrong at this price. And with only 6 built that year its sure to be a Barrett-Jackson car.
