1973 Pontiac FirebirdThis is a classic 1973 Firebird Esprit (formula clone) that has a newly rebuilt 400 in the car.
This is a great classic car for someone who wants to restore without having to start from scratch or break the bank. It runs and drives like a champ, and you can work on it as you go without having to park it until you're ready.
The car itself is in good condition, with the only rust I can find being around the back window under the vinyl top.
There isn't any body damage except for a minor ding below the rear bumper and a small impression on the rear driver-side fender, both easily repaired at a body shop.
Interior is so-so, but the ceiling is old and needs work, as well as the driver's seat and carpet. Also, the dash has a couple of heat cracks. Aside from that, the regular wear and tear isn't too bad.
Car originally had a 350 2bbl with dual straight exhaust (1 1/4"?).
Paint is junk, but a good $4000 paint job could bring the value up by twice that much.
The TH350 tranny is solid and shifts perfectly.
