1988 Pontiac Firebird

1988 PONTIAC FIREBIRD FORMULA 350,18K ORIGINAL MILES,STOCK AND UNTOUCHED,5.7L Up for sale is a 1988 Pontiac Formula 350. It is an original Canadian Vehicle so the odometer reads in Kilometers which is 29,744. That converts over to 18,482 miles. It has a clean and clear Arizona actual mile title. The Formula 350 was the fastest available Pontiac in 1988 and was several hundred pounds less then a comparable GTA. When you chose the 5.7 liter 350 motor it meant that T-tops and a Manual transmission were not available and your only choice was an automatic transmission,and a solid roof. It also came standard with the WS6 suspension package, n oil cooler and 16 inch wheels. The exterior is Bright Red and complimented with a grey cloth interior.
The best way to describe this car is a time capsule. It is about nice enough to roll back onto a showroom floor and can almost pass as new. The exterior appears to have all its original paint and is in exceptional condition. This car was clearly stored and covered in a climate controlled environment. The only item that has been replaced are the tires. It has a matched set of Michelin Pilot tires that look like late 1990's vintage but still are in great condition. The interior is equally impressive and still smells new. Absolutely everything works as it should including the power antenna, lectric hatch release, eadlight motors and even the air conditioning blows ice cold. The only item that seems to have been changed is the radio. It is a correct vintage Delco CD Player and was probably installed when new at the dealer but probably would have had a cassette player instead.
The engine compartment and undercarriage of the car is a testament to the life this car has lived. It is not only spotless and original but there is not a speck of rustor corrosion anywhere. You will be hard pressed to find another one in this condition for any price!!!
Mechanically it runs and drives just like it did off the showroom floor. It has that classic 5.7 Liter torque and the 700R4 Transmission shifts very crisply through all the gears. There is a small puff of smoke on startup due to the original valve stems are dry whichis a common issue and a fairly easy repair.
If you wish you could turn back the hands of time to purchase one of these cars, hen here is your chance. This car is 27 years old and third generation cars have been increasing in value over the last few years and will continue to climb as they age.
Do not snooze on this car if you are interested because it will sell. Please call Randy at 480-206-1701 with any questions as emails may take several days to respond to.
