1994 Pontiac Firebird Formula
A beloved symbol of 1970s car culture. An icon of disco era design.
A redneck's red-letter regalia. It's gaudy. Garish. Tacky. Even
vulgar. And we love it. This is the story of Pontiac's Screaming
Chicken, the largest and most recognizable decal in automotive
history. Lost to time is the name of the man that first referred to

scratches and some earlier rough repairs on the wheel wells. The
composite bumpers are showing some scratches and slight bubbling
Gray cloth makes up the dual buckets in front and the 2+2 seats in
the rear. The remainder of the interior keeps with the gray only a
little darker for the clean dash and pristine carpeting. The shaved
off straight lines and now curves abound in this nice interior.
A 350ci LT1 V8 which the consigner states puts out 330hp is under
the hood. This sits in a super clean and shiny environment with
little to no corrosion. This mill is fuel injected and has a 4L60E
4-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt 2.73 rear.
Lots of patina, some surface rust, and road dirt, but all in
working condition. Independent coil spring suspension for the
front, and torque arm for the rear. Power disc brakes are all
A quick starter, smooth driver and some nice power. Overall a good
Right out of 1994, this red red bird is ready to have its key
turned and driven away for more fun. Look at it as your screaming
chicken less Formula Firebird lighting the tires up.
