1971 Pontiac Firebird 1971 PONTIAC FIREBIRD FORMULA PRO-TOURING

1971 PONTIAC FIREBIRD FORMULA

BOUGHT ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO AT A CLASSIC CAR AUCTION BY ITS CURRENT OWNER WHO HAD BIG PLANS OF TURNING INTO A MILD “PRO-TOURING / RESTO-MOD” TYPE OF CRUISER… UPON SPENDING THOUSANDS ON THE RESTORATION IN PAINT, INTERIOR, DRIVETRAIN AND SUSPENSION, HE HAS DECIDED TO SELL DUE TO OTHER PROJECTS AND A COUPLE OF SHOPS WHO DID NOT FINISH A FEW THINGS UP TO HIS STANDARDS…

UPON DECODING THE TRIM TA, IT APPEARS THE WAS ORIGINALLY “CANYON COPPER- 62”. WHEN THE CAR WAS BOUGHT BY ITS CURRENT OWNER IT WAS PAINTED ORANGE. THE OWNER WANTED A MORE SINISTER LOOKING CAR, SO HE DECIDED ON A DEEP MIDNIGHT BLACK.

THE PAINT IS ABOUT AS NICE AS YOU CAN GET !! VERY CLEAN, THICK AND DEEP WITH NO SIGNS OF SHODDY PREP OR TRYING TO COVER UP ANY DEFECTS. THE CAR HAS YET TO BE WETSANDED, BUFFED AND WAXED- I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW MUCH BETTER IT WILL LOOK…. IT’S PRETTY AMAZING IN ITS CURRENT STATE NOW !!

THE BODY IS LAZER STRAIGHT, WITH GOOD GAPS AND BODY PANELS LINE UP NICE. BECAUSE OF THE SIZE AND HOW THE MOTOR SITS IN THE ENGINE BAY, THE ORIGINAL FORMULA HOOD WAS REPLACED WITH A FIRBERGLASS TRANS AM HOOD / SHAKER.

VERY NICE GLASS, TRIM AND BRIGHTWORK.

INTERIOR IS ALL NEW AND JUST AS IMPRESSIVE !! TILT STEERING. AFTERMARKET GAUGES LOOK GREAT AND WORK PROPERLY. AIR CONDITIONING DOES KICK ON, BUT BLOWS COOL- COULD USE A RE-CHARGE. DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW CRANK HANDLE NEEDS CLIP TO STAY SECURE, PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW CRANK HANDLE IS MISSING. WINDOWS ROLL UP AND DOWN NICE WITH NO BINDING. WORKING LIGHTS, WIPERS AND HORN.

CORRECT DATE CODED 1971 PONTIAC 455ci BLOCK RECEIVED AND FRESH REBUILD INCLUDING NEW RODS, PISTONS, EDELBROCK HEADS, INTAKE AND CARB. MOTOR STARTS RIGHT UP AND SETTLES TO HEALTHY IDLE- OWNER FEELS IT COULD USE SOME MORE “TUNING” TO RUN EVEN BETTER. REBUILT TH400 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH 3000 STALL CONVERTER. STOCK FIREBIRD REAR WITH SOME “GEAR” IN IT… HE’S THINKING 4.30’S OR HIGHER. HE RECOMMENDS SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE USER FRIENDLY (3.73’S) FOR DAILY DRIVING.

IN THE RESTORATION PROCESS HE HAD ASKED A LOCAL SHOP TO INSTALL ALL NEW SUSPENSION, IN DOING SO HE WASN’T HAPPY WITH THE RIDE HEIGHT AND STANCE. IT SITS A LITTLE TOO HIGH FOR HIS TASTE AND HOW HE WANTED IT TO LOOK WHEN FINISHED… ALSO ADDED ARE A NEW SET OF YEARONE SNOW FLAKE WHEELS WITH NEW TIRES. NEW POWER DISC BRAKES. ALTHOUGH THE CAR IS TURN-KEY READY, WITH A COUPLE OF SMALL AREA’S ADDRESSED – IT COULD BE A SHOW STOPPER !!!
