Firebird Formula 350
RUNS GREAT W/ MATCHING #'S 350 V8, AUTO, PS/B W/ FRT DISC, FRESH INTERIOR, NICE!
The country was right in the middle of its bicentennial euphoria as this eye-catching muscle car rolled out and, with its sharp looks and dramatic low-slung design, this 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 is about as fitting a representative for that era as any you'll come across. Its strong running condition makes it a great choice for frequent driving and some recent attention has left it looking good both inside and out.
Pontiac capitalized on the popularity of its first generation of Firebirds by creating a more aerodynamic and lower profile sequel reflected by this '76. Its Athena blue paint is the shade it started off with and it strikes a great balance - it's attention grabbing, but steers clear of the excess that marked a lot of mid '70s color options - and is looking very strong here. Up front, the hood carries a pair of low profile scoops that blend nicely into the rest of the design and loom over the dual grille and twin recesses in the air dam just below to create a nice effect. After its more than four decades of service, this remains a very well-aligned classic and as you take a lap around it, you'll appreciate just how straight its body lines are and how the rear spoiler still blends perfectly with the steel it's surrounded by. The glass is nice and clear on all four sides and fresh rubber lines both the doors and windows to keep the elements out of the cabin.
Inside the doors, the black vinyl interior has been refurbished while retaining its stock look, and with new padding and covers installed in the buckets up front, the carpet re-dyed to freshen its color and a fresh headliner above, it's a comfortable and driving space you'll look forward to spending time in. The original Trans Am-style steering wheel still sits in place, while just beyond, the dash area is looking impressively strong - a welcome sight with UV sensitive black upholstery. The pad across the top is still straight and shows no cracking, the woodgrain insert surrounding the instrument cluster looks fresh, and a trio of aftermarket gauges have been added just in front of the shifter to monitor engine functions. An AM/FM/cassette stereo stands by in the dash to fill the cabin with sound via the pair of deck-mounted 6" x 9" speakers in back. The trunk area is in good order and carries a stain-free liner on its floor.
This Pontiac's strong running condition is a definite plus - it's ready to hit the road just as soon as you get it home. The original 350 cubic inch V8 still resides under the hood, armed with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb for some added power, and is sounding very healthy, breathing into the stock headers leading its dual exhaust to emit a nice deep rumble that's not too overbearing. The engine sits just in front of a 3-speed automatic transmission that's shifting smooth and solid, and with power brakes at all four corners - discs in front - as well as power steering, this GM classic is very much suited for the demands of frequent driving as it rides on a set of 15" B/G wheels outfitted with BF Goodrich T/A radials. A look below at the undercarriage will reinforce the notion that this is a very solid, road-ready vintage cruiser.
Its inspired mid-'70s styling, fresh interior and rock-solid running condition make this 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 a great addition to any classic car enthusiast's garage. Call today!
