For Sale: 1974 Pontiac Firebird Formula in Concord, North Carolina

$22,995

Vehicle Description

Not only is the arguably one of the best years for the Firebird, but you're looking at a numbers-matching V8 coupe with some fun upgrades. So the value price only adds to this unique 1974 Pontiac Firebird.


1974 is the last of the early second-generation Firebirds. In 1975 the wrap-around rear window would debut, and there are many who still feel that the full fastback b-pillars of the '74s are the best-looking of the bunch. We love these classic Pontiacs because the Endura plastic front ends gave them a unique and muscular appearance, and today it's important to find examples that still look as good as this one. The black is a professional application that takes advantage of modern paint practices. The result is a finish quality that will make you swear they make black mirrors. It also helps that the swoopy design on the '74 remains intact on this superior sheetmetal. We could continue to tell you how good the body is, but all you have to do is feel how well the doors still shut to understand how well this one has been cared for. The factory "honeycomb" wheels look fantastic, but it's not the only piece that grabs the attention. Those bold twin air scoops in front are always great to see, and the upgrade to a Ram Air hood is more than just cosmetic.


If you like the slick black exterior, than the condition of the slick black vinyl interior will impress you, too. The bucket seats, door panels, floor mats, and comfortable center console all have a deep black premium appearance. But this is more than just a sea of darkness. The bright trim around the console gearshift and the original AM radio, as well as on the three-spoke factory wheel all brighten up this interior. Plus, the wood paneling surrounding the factory gauges does a nice job of warming up the whole atmosphere.


The 350 cubic-inch, four-barrel V8 is the correct numbers-matching powerplant for this Firebird. By now you've realized that this is not a factory Formula car. Instead, this one strikes a nice balance by offering the original V8, while also making one of the coolest upgrades actually function. After all, some people upgrade the hood, but very few people also top the motor with the right air grabber to make the whole package work. That means a V8 with prominence and extra power. Beyond the upgrade, the engine bay looks quite tidy with the correct blue one the block and everything looking well maintained – from the hoses to the brake master cylinder. Out on the road this enhanced power V8 is matched with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes to be a great driving classic.


This car has a unique and terrific appearance that looks like you paid far more than the affordable list price. We'll even keep this Firebird's secret for you at no extra cost! Call now!!
