1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 Additional Info:

Unique, loaded, and powerful - this 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 is a very cool coupe that has so much custom pieces, that you instantly are drawn into all the special details - especially the Tri-Power on top of the golden motor. So it's amazing something so unique can also be so affordable. This Pontiac has a true retro cool vibe, and it's instantly felt thanks to the paintwork. The brown metallic paint has so much luster, it... feels like root beer candy. But that's not even what's grabbing all your attention. Instead, all your focus is on the full red, orange, and white stripe package that's expertly interwoven on the entire body. In fact, we love how this custom setup highlights some great pieces like the Formula's twin-scoop hood, Pontiac emblem on the Endura front end, and across the full-width rear spoiler. Plus, a coupe like this deserves some custom additions like the power bulge in the center of the hood, a pop-up sunroof, and the polished steel wheels with half-moon covers. Inside the custom stripes on the brown upholstery really unites the interior and exterior into one very unique build. More than just grab attention, this is a comfortable setup that includes factory features like the power windows and power locks. Those are joined by modern upgrades like a full Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system that includes a nicely-integrated equalizer. When you slip behind that classic T/A three-spoke steering wheel, you'll notice a nice mix of factory and upgraded gauges in the machine-turned panel. Plus, there's a B&M shifter now coming out of the center console. All of this tells your senses that there's something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar. You'll never want to take the hood down the whole time you're at the car shows. They really took the time to get the engine bay looking amazing. In fact, you might want to nickname the V8 "Midas" because the whole thing was dipped in gold - including the block! But more than just draw attention, this 400 cubic-inch motor is a true powerhouse. It inhales deeply thanks to the triple dual-barrel carburetor setup made famous by other Pontiacs like the GTO. And it exhales with authority as long tube headers feed the rumbling dual exhaust. This kind of extra muscle is backed up by good handling features like sway bars front & rear, as well as traction bars in the rear. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, this one is a great all-around driver. Something this unique and powerful is rarely so affordable. So it's alright to be tempted by this custom Firebird, but you don't want to delay, or this deal will be gone. Call now!
