1976 Pontiac Firebird FormulaThe 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula is not only a sleek machine with a 400 V8 and an A/C interior, but also this one is coming off of over four decades of long-term ownership. So as you look over the whole car, it proves that there has been careful preservation and the right maintenance investments.
The last time this Pontiac was titled was in 1978. Let that sink in for a moment. You know people who were not yet born when this was obtained by its last owner. And when you keep something for 42 years, it's because you care about it. That's why this factory-correct Firethorn Red has a gloss that loves the sunshine, and the body panels have the clean look of quality. We can understand why a car like this would be kept with such good care. 1976 was the first year for the fully integrated urethane bumpers that give this Pontiac a uniform appearance of a more modern sports car. Speaking of being sporty, the Formula has great touches, like the full-length rear spoiler, quad exhaust tips, and exclusive dual scoop hood. Plus, Pontiac's "Honeycomb" wheels are practically icons all on their own.
The correct buckskin tan vinyl interior looks quite clean, complete, and stock. It's a tasteful looking color against the exterior's fiery red, and it's a complete package with the bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, dash, and center console looking nice. The Formula like to show off its premium side, and so this one has everything from wood-like trim to power windows. Even the correct Delco AM/FM radio is still cranking out the tunes. If you look in the trunk, you'll see the correct space saver tire with inflation canister - that's how original this car is! In fact, the only upgrade you may recognize is one that you won't see, but you will definitely feel. The factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.
More of this car's authenticity is seen under the hood. The code YZ 400 cubic-inch V8 under the hood is believed to be the original and even the low odometer is believed to reflect the car's actual mileage. This is backed up by the very stock appearance of the engine bay - from the corporate blue engine block, to the stock-style exhaust. But a closer inspection also proves the right newer items of a well-maintained classic. The mighty V8 fires up with the eagerness of a well-respected machine, and the big torque moves the coupe ease. In fact, it's built for all-around good driving with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, wide BF Goodrich tires, and a sway bar in the rear.
Complete with owner's manual, it's good to know you're getting this one from someone who cherished it as much as you will. A low-mileage, ideal-year Firebird may be a once in a lifetime car, so don't let this one slip through your fingers. Call today!!!
