Here’s a pretty sweet deal that would be a great way to get into the LSX Challenge Series (or drag racing in general) on the cheap. This LS1 powered 1st gen Firebird comes with a host of drag racing goodies and a 28-foot enclosed car trailer to boot. The best part? You could own both for less than $10,000.
We came across the Firebird and trailer listed for sale on Pro-Touring.com by owner, Shawn MacAnanny from Felton, Delaware, not far from Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. The Firebird itself is pretty rough, but it does come equipped with an LS1 from a 2000 Camaro that’s been upgraded with a decent sized 236/236 cam from COMP, an Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI intake, Moroso’s swap oil pan, and a set of Hooker long-tube swap headers. A beefed up D&D T56 transfers power to an 8.5” 10 bolt with 4.56 gears, and a set of Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials get the grunt to the ground.
Sounds good right? Well, there is a bit of a catch: the car currently isn’t running and needs the EFI system completed. But that should be a minor consideration for resourceful folks like yourselves, especially considering that for the $9,000 asking price you also get a 2006 Continental Cargo trailer. In the for sale thread MacAnanny says, “It couldnt be easier, drive in with a truck and tow them both home!” Check out the for sale thread for MacAnanny’s contact info if you’re interested.
