An original 1979 Firebird Formula, from the private (PHS) Pontiac Historic Services Collection. It is a numbers matching and very correct car that has spent all of its life in the dry climate of the West Coast!
This is the only Firebird that was able to get through the system in 1979 and be delivered to a dealer in California with the Pontiac L78 – 400 cid engine and 4-speed transmission. All other 1979 Formulas and Trans Ams for California were required to have the Oldsmobile-built 403 engine and automatic transmission.
The car comes with all the PHS and Pontiac Motor Division build sheet and window sticker. It still has the original and desirable L78 Pontiac engine, with 4-speed transmission. It also has the WS6 Performance Package and even still wears the correct Goodyear radial tires on all four corners!
This car was recently completely disassembled and given a complete frame-off restoration. A fresh coat of the correct factory Black paint was applied to the body. The original Black vinyl custom interior was retained and is in excellent condition.
The car is factory correct from top to bottom, bumper to bumper and in pristine condition! This car runs and drives like a new car! A rare find, with all the right options and a great addition to any car collection!
