Very Sharp w/ Great Colors! Stock #: 3838-DFW Exterior Color: White Interior Color: Black Body Type: Coupe Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic Drivetrain: RWD Engine: 5.7 Liter LT1 V8 Title Condition: Clear One of the most under-appreciated second-generation F-bodies is the Firebird Formula, which had a redesigned front and rear end for the 1979 year and embodied the futuristic styling elements that were so prevalent in the designs of the coming decade. Less ostentatious than the Trans Am on the outside, this particular 1979 Formula packs a swapped-in, fuel-injected 5.7L V8 bully under the hood today that catapults it into the 'sleeper' category, further aided by its subtle and sophisticated white-on-grey paint job. Take a closer look because this underrated coupe has a whole lot going for it, making it a strong contender in the modern muscle car category.
With new front and rear fascias, the Firebird looked radically different in 1979 compared to its 2nd generation predecessors, and sales prove that it was a popular look. On this particular Formula, code 11 Cameo White was indeed the factory-correct color, but during the car's respray, a bright mind decided to spice things up a bit by adding gray paint to the lower portion of the car, and then separating the two shades by a stark red, pinstriped line of demarcation. Although not a perfect trailer-queen, the finish is consistent and shines up very well, putting it squarely in the very good driver-quality tier that can be shown off with pride at local car shows and cruise-ins. The Formula was pitched as a more sophisticated, upscale model, and without the Trans Am's showy graphics package, it is a bit less ostentatious, but don't get us wrong, this coupe still has a commanding curb appeal. With those aforementioned bright red pinstripes, a familiar ducktail spoiler out back, T-tops up top, and faux ram air ducts on the hood that actually look pretty cool, there are plenty of performance goodies on this Formula that make it look fast and loud just sitting still.
Inside, the performance story continues, with a beautifully upholstered black-and-gray bucket seat interior that was swapped in favor of the rather drab factory code 24 Blue cloth the car was born with. The high-back front buckets are comfortable and feel right at home inside the cabin, as do the matching rear seats, slick black door panels, and plush black carpets below. Perhaps the dash could use a little attention as it looks a tad wavy, but it flows nicely into the factory middle console that houses the factory shifter for the swapped-in 4L60E automatic transmission below. Pontiac's racy engine-turned dashboard looks great here, as it does in the Trans Am, and it's now full of black-faced aftermarket gauges that cover the engine's vitals. A killer 3-spoke wrapped Pontiac steering wheel feels great in the driver's hands, and a Sony AM/FM/cassette stereo fits neatly in the original radio's slot. You'll also note that this car has factory A/C, which blows cold thanks to a nice upgrade to R134a refrigerant inside. Out back, the trunk is sparse, but offers enough space for travel bags or car show goodies.
An Oldsmobile-built 403 cubic inch V8 was part of the Formula deal when you specified an automatic transmission, but that wasn't enough for the former owner of this Poncho. Fortified instead with a swapped-in 5.7L LT1 V8, it runs beautifully with a fat torque curve that moves the Formula effortlessly. Wearing black valve covers and a K&N air filter, it's certainly not stock but still looks right at home in the 'Bird's engine bay and the overall condition is impressive. Power steering and power 4-wheel discs make for a wonderful driving experience, and long-tube headers feed an X-pipe dual exhaust system that uncorks some extra horsepower and gives it a proper high-performance voice. Handsome Pontiac 'Snowflake' wheels wear staggered 245/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear white-letter BFGoodrich T/A radials.
These cars are seeing some increased action in the market, and the less common Formula is a neat alternative to the Trans Am. With extra pop under the hood and great everyday options, you can buy this one with confidence. Call today!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers. SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold "AS IS" and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!
