This rare 1970 1/2 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 (replica) is documented with original protecto-plate, warranty book, and lots of receipts. This car has the original great running 400 Ram Air engine, automatic transmission, power disc brakes, power steering, working factory AC, power windows, factory tach and gages, power trunk pop, rally wheels with BFG tires, spare tire with jack, and more. The body still has its original panels with decent paint. However, if you look close (and you have to) you'll see a star crack on the top above the driver's side door in what appears to be clear coat stretch marks in some areas. The interior looks to be mostly original and very clean. This is a rare, well documented car for a great price so take advantage. ~~ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT ???A/C ???Tach ???Power Brakes ???Power Steering ???Power Windows ???AM/FM Radio w/ CD and MP3 Player OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT ???400 CID V8 engine ???dual exhaust ???leather interior ???hide away lights ???tilt steering wheel ???custom Alley wheels Bill Mitchell, GM's design chief, had complained that the first Firebird "had no real identity." This was not the case with the 1970 1/2 Pontiac Firebird. The body-colored "Endure" plastic front end contained a bumper surrounding recessed grille inserts and single head lamps set apart. Road & Track opined that "GM stylists seem to have a way with detailing that is unmatched in the U.S. car industry." The body-colored "Endura" plastic front end contained a bumper surrounding recessed grille inserts. Single head lamps sat apart. Road & Track opined that "GM stylists seem to have a way with detailing that is unmatched in the U.S. car industry." This beautiful Firebird has the original 400 motor, however, the Ram Air was nicely added by the previous owner. The car runs smooth and the engine with the added Ram Air feature runs very well.

When you think about muscle cars and pony cars of the late 1960s, a 1969 Pontiac Firebird such as the Pick of the Day is not always one of the first cars that comes to mind.
It’s no surprise that John Z. DeLorean, who gave us the Pontiac GTO, wanted to do something different with the new Firebird being offered by his Pontiac Division of General Motors.

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?
I had a 1988 Pontiac Formula Firebird when was a young man, but we live in a city where there are many hills and rear-wheel drive is not ideal.
