1980 Pontiac FirebirdHello, I have a 1980 Pontiac Firebird for sale. I bought the car early last year down in Tennessee and brought it back to Illinois. I'll try and break down everything as detailed as I can in this ad but if you do have any questions you can text me, call me or email me at the provided numbers. The car is located in Grayslake IL.
This firebird started life as a base naturally aspirated 301 2bbl. But currently has an LS1 out of an 2002 Camaro ss swapped in. This is a true ls1 aluminum engine with around 40 thousand miles on it. Here's some details
-True Aluminum block and heads
-Spectre Cold Air Intake
-Stock ls1 radiator with electric fans wired in.
Car runs at 185 degrees all day no matter what. Starts every time and gets 24 mpg on the expressway.
-4L60E electronic overdrive transmission from the 2002 Camaro.
-Shifts firmed up through computer tuning
-B&M ratchet shifter
-Aluminum lightweight driveshaft
-10 Bolt Rear end
-3.73 Rear Gears
-Moser engineering axles
-C5 front brake conversion
-Front drilled and slotted rotors with semi-metallic pads
-Right stuff detailing rear disc brake conversion
-Braided front brake lines to the c5 calipers
-Aftermarket larger front sway bar
-1 inch drop springs
-Large Aftermarket subframe connectors
-Rear sway bar
-New moog upper and lower ball joints
-Year One 17x9 Snowflake Wheels
-275/40/17 BF-Goodrich Sport Comp 2 Tires on all 4 corners
-Less then 3 thousand miles on tires and wheels
-Rust free southern body
-Formula Firebird hood
-Stock body parts
-Hurst T tops
-Paint is not the greatest, it's full of nicks and scratches. The hood isn't original to the car and the match of the colors isn't the greatest.
-Blue Corbeau racing seats with 4 Point harnesses
-Back half roll cage
-Aftermarket VDO gauges, which include the speedometer, tachometer, fuel, oil pressure, coolant temp
-B&M ratchet shifter
-Now to the bad, it doesn't have a headliner, the dash has some cracking, it doesn't have a radio or speakers, and my driver window crank broke and I haven't gotten around to fixing that yet.
I've been building the car to be a semi pro touring Autocross car. It has many imperfections but it does have the LS swap and many aftermarket upgrades for Autocross and handling. I've driven this car across the country and it has been incredibly reliable for me. It's been stored in a climate controlled garage the entire time I've had it and never leaked a single fluid. I have receipts of everything I've done to the car in my ownership.
I'm open to any offers you may have. I'll answer any question that comes up but I believe I've detailed the ad pretty well. My name is Erik and the car is located in Grayslake IL
