1970 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 Pro-Touring Additional Info:

You instantly know this 1970 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 Pro-Touring is a mean street machine. And while the custom interior and exterior show some serious aggression, the performance-built LS V8, reinforced four-speed, and upgraded suspension make sure this coupe delivers on its intimidating looks.
Pontiac people know the significance of Carousel Red. Not only is it so vivid that Chevy called it Hugger Orange, but also it was only used for some of the biggest muscle Pontiacs of all time. So it's found the right home here. The whole body was media blasted during restoration, so they made sure to take great care before even the first drop of paint went on top. So you get a high-gloss shine off the curves of the sheetmetal. And some of the best parts of the car were painted black. For example, the Formula 400s had those awesome dual scoops that dominated the hood, and this special one turns it up a notch by finishing them in the contrasting black. And this combines with the front air dam, full blackout trim, tinted windows, rear bumper, and full-width rear spoiler to give the coupe a well-coordinated dark side. And we especially like the look of the wheels that fit with the dark theme, and at the same time, they have a hint of polished detail left in so people really pay attention to these upgraded alloys.
The black and orange two-tone continues inside with this full custom treatment. This has the fresh feeling of a proper investment, and it's done with performance in mind. The upgraded front bucket seats have better bolstering to hug your body. There's an armrest center console that puts your hand in the right place for the shifter. And the three-spoke ports steering wheel (power steering) and tilt column give you a clear view of the custom dash with Marshall gauges. So while there's an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, we all really know the best soundtrack begins under the hood.
One look at the engine bay, and you can instantly see the unmistakable look of a big investment in LS power. This new 5.3-liter V8 is not only a modern fuel-injected motor, but they also enhanced and fortified it to be its best. That means it has Mahle pistons, 243 ported & polished heads, 98mm throttle body, Weiand intake, and a full Howards Racing kit with cam, springs, push rods, and lifters. The full power package is pushing 401 at the rear wheels, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! Handling this big power is a Super T10 four-speed that has a McLeod Racing Sage 2 hydraulic clutch. As you look underneath, you'll see upgrades in all the right places, including a QA1 tubular front suspension and thick sway bars front and rear. The four-wheel power disc brake upgrade (w/drilled & slotted up front) combines with the modern performance tires to deliver you excellent control.
The sale comes with service manuals and the dyno sheet that's ideal for bragging rights. This is really an awesome total build, so if you're looking for the meanest Pontiac around, call today!
