1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400
Offered here is a fully restored, frame off ground up restoration, 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400. Our client bought this car from California in 2010 and meticulously restored the car while making it perform even better than new, finishing in 2015. The car has less than 1,000 miles since. This Firebird was originally a Formula 350 finished in blue over a blue interior; however, our client wanted a cleaner finish in Cameo White over a black interior. Everything on this car is essentially brand new.
The car is powered by a NOM 400ci rebuilt using racing pistons to increase compression from 8.2 to 9.5:1. It also has SCAT Rods, Melling 068 equivalent Cam, correct 1971 no. 96 heads with mild port and bowl clean up, 1971 stock intake, Petronix Electronic Ignition and Coil, and rare 1971 7041263 850CFM Carburetor. The transmission is a rebuilt Turbo 400 with new Boss H06 Torque Converter and new flex plate. Complete with Pypes 2.5 inch Stainless Exhaust with correct CrossFlow Performance muffler and correct stainless tips. The rear end is a 3:42 10 bolt Posi with all new seals, axle bearings, drums, shoes, and wheel cylinders. It starts, runs, and drives much better than the day it rolled off the factory floor.
And here's the long list of all new parts: front and rear springs, hoses, heater core, belts, alternator, battery, fuel lines, brake lines, fuel tank, full brake assembly, engine wiring harnesses, forward light harnesses, transmission lines, radiator, fan clutch, rear bumper, shocks, floor mats, power steering pump, master cylinder, tilt steering column with new formula wheel, slapshift shifter, BFG radials on Honeycomb wheels, windshield, door glass, rear glass trim, outside door handles, grills, door locks, emblems, rocker moldings, body bushings, and wheel trim rings. All floor pans are original except the very bottom of the trunk. The AC has been deleted and it also has the original dash.
This is a high-standard, professional rebuild and all the bugs have already been worked out after two years and less than 1,000 miles driven. You simply cannot build this car for the price we are offering it for here. It has been PHS Documented and even comes with a copy of the original build sheet. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our website. Call or e-mail for more information, or to make a reasonable offer. Thank you for looking.
