1978 Pontiac Firebird Formula Coupe 2-DoorThis is an amazing example of an original Pontiac Formula Firebird. I'm listing this for a friend.
This car is currently owned by the third owner who purchased it in 2013.It has always been garage kept by this owner and the second owner who owned it since 1988.It is kept on jack stands in a heated garage and protected with a car cover.
It was painted right before the previous owner purchased it in Florida.He lived in Florida and later moved to Pennsylvania.It has NEVER been driven in snow or bad weather.
When it was purchased in 2013 the tires had flat spots from sitting in the garage so new tires as shown were purchased.The car has been driven less than 500 miles since then and has been stored on jack stands to prevent flat spots.
This car still has the original numbers matching 400-4 barrel V8 and turbo 350 automatic with the 8.5-inch GM 10-bolt differential.It even still has the stock spark plug wires with dates marked on them. The rims are original and in excellent condition.
The car is rust-free and smoke-free and has been well-preserved.The trunk still has the original spare complete with original inflation device and jack as it came from the factory.
The interior of the car is 100% original.The seats have some stitching starting to come loose in some spots and the headliner has come down as is typical of these.The original headliner pieces are included in a plastic bag.The carpet is coming loose from dry rot in some areas and on the driver's side floor.The stock AM/FM Cassette stereo is still intact in working condition. It is in very usable condition as you can see.
The options include a/c which does work and still has R12 in the system.It has not been used since purchase by the current owner to test it and should be considered in need of refrigerant replacement.It does have the dual exhaust from the cat back that is believed to be original.
The car runs and drives perfectly and the brakes operate as they should.The cold air intake on the fender dry-rotted and was removed and is provided with the car to replace.
This is as original car as one could hope to find.Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of American history!
