Today at just over 61000 miles, this 1973 Formula remains a
high-quality example that retains much originality. The car has had
one repaint in its original factory color with the rest of the
vehicle remaining very original. The miles are said to be and
believed to be original. The motor appears to be original and
numbers matching, the stamp on the front side of the block matches
the VIN and all other castings, date codes and id stamps are
correct. Mechanically, this Formula Firebird drives excellent,
pulls strong, tracks well, suspension and steering are tight, rides
great and stops straight.
Cosmetically, the exterior the repaint is older, but shows very
well, the beak shows expected sight checking. The interior is
clean, appears to be original, and super clean. The headliner has
been replaced. Under the hood is all original and tidy and the
frame and underside remain unrestored as well and shows clean,
solid and dry.
A total of just over 10000 Firebird Formula's were built and less
than half of them came with a 4 speed transmission. Production was
relatively low, the survival rate was low as well. These cars are
rarely seen and hugely respected. A great opportunity awaits on a
largely unmolested example. Documentation includes: The original
window sticker, the original California pink slip, the original
books, original key knock outs, complete PHS documentation, recent
service history etc.
