Poncho Metro: 1991 Pontiac Firefly LE Convertible

The next car came across the DT tips hotline and I almost immediately discounted it as yet another minty clean early 90s Geo Metro, but upon closer look this thing is a Pontiac. Yup, you could get the Geo Metro badged as a Pontiac Firefly in Canada for a few years and this one has made the trip south for the winter. Find this 1991 Pontiac Firefly LE Convertible offered for $5500 in Pinole, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.

Hello Craigslist shoppers we’ve decided to sell our beloved 1991 Pontiac Firefly LE Convertible,
Although she might look like a toy she’s actually very practical not to mention economical powered by a in-line three cylinder 1.0 L engine and a five speed manual transmission she gets 40 miles per gallon in the city and 46 miles per gallon highway

Short wheel base let’s you park in spots that you could only attempt in a Fiat 500 or a smart car.

Mechanically she’s in great shape and has always been kept in good running condition.
No leaks or squeaks
No dummy lights
No smoking
No roughy idle
She’s in great shape

The firefly is a very simple car based on simple mechanics and functions

Everything on her is manual. ( windows, mirrors, locks, top etc … )

Top is easy to operate and can be dropped and raised with one hand in no time and all .

It’s a Canadian import so the odometer and speedometer are in kilometers not miles

Currently it shows 174,997 kilometers which breaks down to about 108,000 miles

Interior is in great shape exterior is in good shape as well but does have some cosmetic flaws
( a few dings dents and scuffs )

Clean title ( on hand )
Passed smog
PNO

If you’re wondering what is a Firefly it’s a very obscure Canadian car it’s US Version would be a Geo Metro or a Chevy Sprint, it’s based off the Suzuki Swift platform and was only built for our Northen neighbors for 2 years 1991 and 1992 ( in its convertible option)

These vehicles are very rare and extremely well built, they’re tons of fun to drive & are absolute beauties to look at in my opinion and they are super practical gas savers especially at a time when the cost of commuting Per hour is higher than an hourly rate above minimum wage lol

We’re asking 5500 or best offer please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a viewing of the vehicle
