1980 Pontiac Firebirdoriginal arizona Firebird, urchased new in mesa,az in 1980 by my wife's uncle. Car was rear ended in 1990 and has been parked ever since. It was given to a neighbor who was going to repair it but it sat parked, ntouched, or over 20 years. I got it last year and was going to restore it. I don't have the time or space for such a project.
Original engine and transmission, ll emissions equip, actory exhaust, /c intact. I got the car running, leaned out the fuel tank, hanged the oil - cat converter was plugged, ut once unbolted it runs and drives surprisingly well. Even the brakes are still working .transmission shifts fine, ut I really only drove it around the block since taillights are out.Included with the car is a set of nice taillamps, ncluding the gas door.
Deck lid was replaced and rear bumper cover. Needs metal work on quarters but they are repairable. Tail panel will need a replacement but fortunately, reproduction is now available for less than $400.
The car is solid and rust free. The doors don't sag and close easily. Tops are factory (fisher- see build sheet). All glass including tops and windshield are good.
This will be a nice car to restore or build a trans am clone. I will entertain offers but it's been sitting for almost a quarter century, 'm not giving it away over having to keep it a few months more. I have a 1979 formula as well and may make a package deal. It has no powertrain but the body is perfect. Another original Arizona car. I was going to cut it up to fix this one but now that repro parts for the 79_81s are available, ou could build two nice cars.
