1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350

Pontiac was still in the performance business when this 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 was built, omplete with a 350 cubic inch V8, aking it as much fun to drive as it is to look at. The market is moving on these cars, nd this high-visibility example still carries its matching-numbers drivetrain.Recently repainted in its original color combination, his Firebird is exactly the opposite of subtle. Forget all the jokes about flying chickens on the hood, ecause this one has a clean, hiseled look that suggests horsepower without the added graphics. It was a clean, onest car before the repaint, oo, nd has ended up as an ultra-sharp reminder of what performance was like in the '70s. Gaps are good all around, nd Pontiac gave it a great look with a modest chin spoiler, pair of hood scoops, nd a ducktail spoiler out back, ll of which remain in excellent shape. The paint is two-stage urethane, o it has a great shine that's virtually indestructible, nd the black lower edges emphasize the length of the car, aking it long and low. It's not perfect, f course, ut it's got an awesome look that'll stand out among all the Trans Ams you see at shows.White buckets were the best way to travel in 1976, nd the classic color combination ensures that this Poncho will always be in demand by collectors. The seats are comfortable and supportive thanks to fresh foam underneath, nd the seat covers themselves are exact reproductions that show very little wear since the restoration. The center console houses the original shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission as well as a handy storage bin, nd the gauges look quite good considering their age. The original AM radio is still in the dash, ut today entertainment comes from an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit neatly stashed in the glove box. The trunk is highly original and includes the original mat which is a bit tattered but these days, riginality matters.While a lot of engines were down on horsepower in the mid-70s, ontiac engineers were better than most at keeping their top engines at the top of the horsepower charts, nd the 350 cubic inch V8 in this Firebird is a good runner. This is the original, umbers-matching engine and runs great, o it's ready to enjoy without worries. It wears Pontiac Turquoise paint, Rochester 4-barrel under the original air cleaner, nd an all-new exhaust system with a high-flow catalytic converter and transverse muffler. The chassis is in good order thanks to a lifetime in the south, nd a set of reasonable gears in back make it an effortless cruiser. Wheels are the traditional Pontiac Rally IIs which have been painted to match the body and wear 235/60/15 BFGoodrich radials at all four corners.Five years ago, e told you that this day was coming, nd now it's here. '70s Firebirds are red hot and climbing the market faster than almost anything else. Don't wait another day, all us now!
