1978 Pontiac Firebird Formula
350ci W50 Engine 180hp with Rochester 4bbl
THD 3-speed Automatic Transmission & Dual Exhaust

Take a look at this completely Unrestored survivor class Firebird Formula.  This all-original sports classic runs and drives like a top.  She starts right up and stops as it should.  She is ready to be driven anywhere as is or, is an excellent candidate for a restoration.  The entire body and frame are completely rust-free.

The interior seating has seam tares but the overall look is very presentable.  There are no dash cracks which eliminates a costly repair.  The Bird is factory equipped with power windows, power brakes, air conditioning, AM-FM stereo and factory T-tops.  All gauges work properly.  The gas gauge works but is off by a few gallons.  The center console is in excellent condition as is the steering wheel.  The interior is completely dry indicating that the T-tops have never leaked.

The engine has the rare W-50 option package which is a factory installed Chevy 350ci engine.  NOTE: This is NOT an aftermarket or replacement engine.  This is the original matching numbers engine that came from the factory.  The engine and key components such as battery, fuel lines, brakes and tires have been completely refreshed.

The body has a few dents or dings throughout but as indicated, there is NO rust anywhere. Body panels lines up straight as this is an unmolested car.
This Firebird can be driven as is or, can be someone’s short or long term restoration project.  One thing for sure; This car will continually increase in value as time goes on.
