1970 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 (WT code) with Muncie M-13 3-Speed Manual Transmission in MINT Showroom Condition after Recent Frame-Off Restoration
This showroom condition 1970 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 has recently undergone a complete frame-off restoration. This Arizona car is 1 of just 286 manufactured with this engine and transmission combination. A rare look at a Firebird Formula 400 with a factory built Muncie M13 3-speed Heavy Duty Manual Transmission. Adding to that awesome combination is a 12 bolt posi rear with 3:55 Gears. The paint was beautifully refinished in Lucerne Blue (GM code 26) over all original body panels, floor boards, door and fenders. The grills, Endura front bumper, fiberglass hood with scoops and fiberglass rear deck lid are also original.
The all new black interior is as good as new. All gauges including those from the Rally Gauge Cluster work perfectly including the Clock/Tach and radio which were both refurbished during the frame-off nut & bolt restoration. The over-sized black 3-speed shift ball is the factory original.
The engine, transmission and every part and piece of this Formula 400 are matching as the binder will show.. Front disc brakes are standard equipment on the Formula as well as the Handling Package, Performance dual exhaust with chrome tips, dual outside body color mirrors and more. Rally II wheels were optional and purchased when new. The odometer reads 56,672 since new with only 1500 miles since the frame-off restoration
This is an investment grade Firebird Formula 400 with all the right pieces to the puzzle. Beautiful in every way, original paperwork as well as PHS documentation, a detailed binder showing all part numbers and date codes and more...

I’ve spent far longer then I care to admit staring at the Pick of the Day car, a 1968 Pontiac Firebird, trying to think of something smart and interesting to say about it.
Still steamed that you missed out on that 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the Smokey and the Bandit promo car that sold at Barrett-Jackson?
