Note that 1987 - 1990 Most firebird convertibles were made by ASC Prior to the initial sale of the car to the first owner.   Cars were ordered by a dealer, drop shipped to ASC in MI, and then shipped to their final destination.  They are not a part of the normal Production of Pontiac as Pontiac did not officially offer a convertible until the 1991 model year.   All convertibles from 1987-1992 were made by ASC, along side the Camaro Convertibles.  The "Production" versions of the Convertibles were not available with the L98 (350 engine).  All 87-90 Firebird convertibles have a VIN of a coupe.
