The 1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Comp T/A was a limited edition performance version of the Trans Am. It was equipped with a 5.7L V8 engine, paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The Comp T/A package added racing-inspired upgrades such as a sport-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes, and an aerodynamic body kit. Only 200 units of the 1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Comp T/A were produced, making it a rare and highly sought-after collector’s item today. This vehicle is numbered 43/200.
From the owner:
Being listed for auction is my 1995 Pontiac Trans Am Comp T/A. These rare vehicles were developed when Ed Hamburger of Street Legal Performance (SLP) joined forces with GM to create the Comp T/A package. The special edition Trans Am celebrated the 25th anniversary of BFGoodrich’s Comp T/A line of performance tires. (If you haven’t heard of this model, it was designed as a higher-end variant of the Firehawk.)
Produced over a three-year span from 1995 to 1997, there were a total of only 164 Comp T/As made. All cars were shot in bright metallic silver and came loaded with factory options, including the 1SA option package and T42 Trans Am spoiler. Once SLP took delivery, it added a lightweight RTM composite hood with a cold-air induction; a performance air induction; 17×9-inch cast-alloy aluminum wheels; and a dark gray, 10-inch, center body stripe; along with the requisite BFGoodrich Comp T/A tires and a numbered dash plaque. Performance was quick for the day with 300 hp on tap from the LT1 engine with 360 lb-ft of torque.
This model includes the following:
LT1 5.7 liter V8
6-speed manual with Hurst shift kit
extra set of Speedline rims (identical to the ones shown on the car). This was a factory option as part of commemorating the BFG tires.
lightweight RTM composite hood
Eidelbrock throttle body
Recaro-style seats with electronic bolstering and lumbar support
Baer brakes with performance rotors
COMP T/A floor mats
power locks and windows
original owners manuals from Pontiac and SLP
two sets of keys
Water pump and Optispark distributor replaced last year at 104,377 miles
Mass air flow sensor replaced in 2021
New head unit with bluetooth phone connectivity installed in 2021
This vehicle is in great shape. For the sake of transparency, here are the known issues (all minor): (i) antenna motor does not always retract automatically, but will retract with a light push; (ii) the passenger side window motor likely needs to be replaced; (iii) 2 of the 8 speakers are not functioning (the other 6 work well–the two that are not working are in the rear and are believed to function, but are merely disconnected); (iv) I believe there is a dead spot on the starter (the car fails to start 1 in every 20-30 starts, but always starts on a subsequent turn of the key–this hasn’t been a big enough deal for me to inspect further).
