For Sale: 1997 Pontiac Firebird in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

A one-owner and loaded modern classic is what you get with this 1997 Pontiac Firebird Formula. In fact, you'll also find it irresistible to add to the ultra-low odometer when you see that the fuel-injected V8 power is maximized with Ram Air, and the WS6 sports suspension mixes with the six-speed transmission for an awesome driving experience.

This one is a terrific survivor-level coupe, and it starts with the vibrant red paint. This factory application still looks impressive for a coupe that's approaching the quarter-century mark. The sharply pointed front end, sleek body lines, and one of the coolest rear spoilers around look terrific on this car's well-respected lines. This car has a very modern style, but those bright polished alloys give it the look of classic Americana chrome. But our favorite classic callback is the dual hood scoops. Pontiac fans know that the bold nose of the Ram Air scoops is a Formula hallmark...but only the best ones got them on the Firebird's final generation.

The taupe cloth interior is an attractive color against the exterior red. Low mileage means little seat time, and so the upholstery looks great and feels even better. It's easy to get comfortable with features like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, alarm, cruise control, dual front airbags, electric rear defogger, and the premium AM/FM/cassette stereo with a seven-band equalizer. This has a true sports car feeling with front seats that have terrific bolstering. The steering wheel has all your main radio functions, and it tilts to give you a clear view to the full gauge package. And that large tach is particularly handy on this coupe.

This a special car because the Ram Air option was a rarity with the Formula. It means the 350 cubic-inch LT1 motor that was rated at 285 hp. And since it's such a well-preserved machine, you'll be glad to know this is the numbers-matching fuel-injected powerhouse. This all looks correct and properly kept, right down to the factory decals that are still in place. In fact, the only upgrade known is a set of GM roller rockers (and the factory rockers also come with the sale.) But more than just a nicely preserved coupe, this Firebird Formula was made for driving. You have complete control over the powerful V8 and its thunderous roar thanks to the six-speed manual transmission - another true rarity these days.
Plus, the Ram Air meant you also got the excellent WS6 upgraded handling package. You also have power steering, ABS, and four-wheel power disc brakes for a fine all-around driver.

The undercarriage photos show you how preserved this car is over every inch. And a Pontiac this special also comes with the right paperwork, including the original window sticker, dealer invoice, owner's manual, and service manuals. This is a uniquely respected one-owner classic, and so you don't want to miss your chance. Call today!!!
