Interior Color:

Exterior Color:
Cameo White

This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula is fantastically original from the unique paint package to the big 6.6 V8 under the hood. There\'s even an impressive paperwork file that reminds you why this year was so significant. So it\'s amazing that a survivor this extraordinary can also be so affordable.

Cameo White is a terrific performance Pontiac color. What\'s particularly notable is that this shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. And it retains an impressive gloss and shine for a finish that has passed the forty-year mark. We love the Firebirds from this generation because they loved to give you a terrific total paint package right from the factory. So this Formula has a stylish gray lower section, and there\'s a triple-blue stripe to give it a proper dividing line. And while this is a comprehensive and detailed color package, you\'ll also love this because a Formula has a terrific speedy style. You get aggressive pieces like the dual hood scoops, quad exhaust tips, and full-width rear spoiler. And the upgrade to iconic Cragar SS polished wheels just seems right on such a cool classic like this (but purists will be happy that the stock wheels come with the sale, too.)

The tones of blue inside go great with the gray and blue of the outside to make for a cohesive full package. It\'s highly original, and it all looks well-respected - right down to Pontiac\'s hobnail cloth pattern upholstery. So while it\'s unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, the whole atmosphere feels like this coupe has been properly appreciated. This is a true driver\'s machine with the classic T/A steering wheel, console-mounted shifter, high-back bucket seats, and all the gauges set in the sporty machine-turned panel. While this does have a terrific survivor style, it\'s also a Firebird, and so you know it\'s a classic you want to drive. That\'s why you have great factory features like power windows, a tilt steering column, and cruise control. And they are joined by worthwhile upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo with upgraded speakers and Bluetooth, and the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching L80 6.6-liter V8. It has a very honest appearance, right down to the correct factory decals. This stock style is very important here because Pontiac fans know that 1979 was the last year of the big motor machines. This V8 fires up with confidence, so you\'ll love taking it out on the road. In fact, this is the era of great driving Firebirds. So you get features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, front discs, and a sway bar in the rear.

The sale comes complete with the original windows sticker, bill of sale, owner\'s manual, and plenty of other paperwork to document this last of the big motor survivors. This is a distinct and powerful time capsule that\'s also fun to drive today. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
