    This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well-maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim and mechanics are not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent condition. Some vehicles may be considered "matching numbers" vehicles.

    NADA Classic puts the car at $5820.00 Low Retail............Easy Formula or T/A Clone Car. Showing 83,267 Miles on Odometer. Unknown if the car has 183,267 because the odometer only has 5 digits and the 6th. digit is tenths of a mile, therefore I'm not selling the car as a 83,000 mile vehicle.

PHS reflects that only 3,120 4.9 litre cars had the Manual trans. and 10,316 cars had the automatic trans. Somewhat rare options with the 4 Speed, gauges instead of idiot lights and rear spoiler on a Base Firebird. The car will need some moderate to major restoration due to rust in certain areas underneath and exterior spots { See Pics } . Mechanically Ok. No fluids left on ground where parked. Engine has no loud noises . Radiator replaced recently. Can be a driving project. Rear brakes and Front tires recommended before I would drive it too far. The Emergency brake works.The bad about the car: Definitely will need bodywork. Some deep scratches on the pass. side Quarter panel paint. Evidence of Bondo on both quarter panels. Rust spots in the center of hood. The door keys I have that came with the car do not open the trunk or door locks, but I have 2 working keys for the ignition and I also have the trunk key code from PHS. I have no idea what the trunk floor looks like inside or what's in there. Pass. side outside door handle broken. Ft. Bumper is missing both lower grill inserts. Right rear bumper corner hangs down slightly. { See Picture }, Driver side seat wont slide to adjust and is wobbly. { Poss. track broken }, Interior needs a lot of help. No headliner.

Both front floors have rusted through in areas { Patch maybe be possible } Behind rear bumper has some rust. Both front fender Firebird emblems are missing. **Note** I was not able to have car on a lift to thoroughly inspect the undercarriage for rust and find the Partial VIN # on transmission case and Rear Axle to verify matching Numbers, but the components look unmolested and I am to believe from the man I bought it from to be the 3rd owner, but this info is not documented. Pictures were taken with vehicle on the ground with a flashlight as best as possible. I have only owned the car for a short period of time. Rear brakes need attention. Pedal is spongy { Drum Brakes in rear } Missing one wire wheel center cap. Blower motor not working for the interior fan. Engine runs strong.
