This 1971 Pontiac Firebird is a Formula tribute that also has some
great custom elements to celebrate the best of the Pontiac line.
And of course, having a Ram Air 400ci V8 with four-on-the-floor is
the best way to honor GM's performance division.
This has that aggressive front end that used the big snout Endura
front end as the bumper, and we all know that disappeared in the
early '70s due to unfortunate federal mandates. So this one turns
back the clock with the desirable look up front, and even the rear
is the classic style to match! Plus, this has been upgraded with
all the best sporty features you love, like the flared fender body
kit, side fender vents, and the full-width rear spoiler. There's
something absolutely awesome about the Formula's twin-scoop hood.
The bold orange paint has the look of Pontiac's famous Carousel Red
and the side stripe looks like they were borrowed from The Judge
GTOs. The upgraded Ridler wheels have a 17/18 inch front/rear
stagger that gives this an added hint of aggressive stance.
Black interiors always look good on speedy machines, especially
with nice carpeting, good upholstery, and custom door panels with a
diamond-stitch pattern. And best of all, this one really likes to
get down to speedy business. That's why it's a driver-oriented
setup with upgraded bucket seats, a Trans Am-style sports steering
wheel, Hurst shifter, and a custom dash panel full of crisp
AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges.
This one earns the exterior upgrade to the sleeker/earlier style
because it also has one of the earlier legends under the hood. The
400 cubic-inch V8 is from 1971, which was an era for mightier
motors. And this one gets the classic look correct, right down to
the bright blue block and polished valve covers. That upgraded Ram
Air hood means cool fresh air is force-fed to the Summit Racing
four-barrel carburetor. Long tube headers let this one exhale with
added power and authority into the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's a
powerful total package that you take full control over with the
four-speed manual transmission. Plus, there's power steering, power
brakes w/front discs, sway bars front & rear, and grippy ZR-rated
tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.
Titled as a 1978 Pontiac Firebird. This is distinct and powerful
fun wrapped in a bold sports car body. So if you love a great
Pontiac, you know you can't bet the price and presence this one
brings. Call now!
