Description for Pontiac Firebird 1971

PKG DEAL!

To be honest tho, I'm just using up my last FREE listing promotion deal with eBay even listing these(kind of hard for me to let these 2 go, however, they r priced RIGHT if they do go)!

1971 Formula:

It's a MATCHING #'s car!

And, I'm told by previous owner that motor was rebuilt just a few k mls ago and that mtr is bored out a little bit(and the way it runs/drives I can c/feel it)!

THIS THING WILL HAUL A$$$!!!

I MEAN, THE LAST TIME I DROVE IT(2 WK'S AGO), I WAS ROLLING ALONG AT 30MPH, NAILED IT, AND I COULDN'T C ANYTHING IN BACK OF ME FROM ALL OF THE RUBBER THAT THE TIRE'S BURNED!

What's really impressive is, car had sat for 5 year's until last year and NOTHING has been done to carb(which was put on new 5 year's ago so I'm told, it's a HOLLEY), anyways, it's just soooo accurate that it almost feels like a fuel injected car/mtr?!

Besides the left front brake caliper being a little sticky at times, I'll give the cars' run/drive a PERFECT 10!

AC was cold, ICE COLD in fact, however, it stopped blowing cold air so I tried adding some 134 to it(it's been converted) and system is full, compressor is engaged, so, I'm betting that orifice tube is clogged(TYPICAL)!

Mtr compartment looks GR8!

It's by no means show quality and if u want a show car then of course u r going to do a lot of detailing to it BUT as is it's presentable, driver's quality!

Trans, rear end, and front end ALL feel GR8/TIGHT!

Interior is overall DECENT-NICE!

Driver's seat has a little cut on bottom pad(super ez to address), I'm guessing seat covers have been replaced not too too long ago, seat padding is super comfortable, carpet is brand new, it has brand new $150 GM BLACK floor mats, it has a brand new reproduction T/A FAT RIM strg wheel(horn cap is used tho), I addeda T/AFish Scale dash bezel for my liking,it already had a nice and gr8 working vintage digital 2 knob cassette stereo(I added oldskool brand new 6x9 speaker's to rear), headliner for the most part is in good shape but it's sagging at rear some and also on left sail panel(lower left sail panel is brand new).

So, interior wise, its biggest PICK is typical cracks on dash pad, however, it does have a dash overlay(which the sun/heat has now warped a little).

And now, the exterior.

Car has some rot/rust on bottom front fender's(but patch panels fixes this, FOR SURE).

Cars' WORST rot/rust is from U KNOW WHAT, THE VINYL TOP!!!

MOST DEFINETELY it does NOT need any new panel's!

These can be easily metaled in the same way that my Green car was fixed.

Also, there's a dent up on top that looks like it will easily pop right out and on rt qt there's obviously been some previous body work done to front of qt but again, is workable/fixable!

Hood is fiberglass and it's in nice shape minus 1 vent tooth needing a repair.

Front nose was completely restored(minus trimming).

Previous owner spent $5bill's alone haing it restored so this is a nice addition to any future restoration!

There is a little rot/rust to some of passenger's side floorboard so if u r just wanting a driver quality car u should be good to go but if not, then u could easily just replace that side for CHEAP $!

And, trunk floor has a couple of very minor rot/rusted places BUT in my opinion, patch these up and NO WAY would I replace trunk floor(these places r in edge at center, not like center of floorboard, I had to look hard to c, no big deal).

I know and u probably know that ready to go this is a $20-$25k car all day long(even more $ if u make PRISTINE)!

I like driver quality car's personally(because I never really drove the 'show car's I've owned)!

Oh, and this is a pwr window/tilt strg wheel car.

SO, THIS PRETTY MUCH TELLS IT ALL ABOUT THIS ONE!

1974 TRANS AM CLONE(PREVIOUSLY A FIREBIRD ESPIRIT):

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR THE MOST IS ITS BEAUTIFUL METALLIC LIME FIRE GREEN "FACTORY" COLOR!

If it was still just an Espirit it would still be highly sought after for being this color alone!

Also, I LOVE its GREEN color interior too(I'm trying to think of its name now but I'm drawing a blank).

Another super hard color to find, especially in a 'bird!

GREEN is my most fave color and whenever I saw this car f/s many year's ago the color combo is what attracted me to it!

But anyways, I always want to try and be different(RED, WHITE, AND BLUE ONE'S R COOL BUT A "GREEN" ON, FORGET ABOUT IT)!!!

LONG STORY SHORT, car still needs a lot of TLC!

Nothing drastic, just a little of this and that!

MY JERK painter did a GR8 job on what he did do but he messed up a few minor things and he forgot to paint inside of trunk lid.

I had given him a replacement lid after car was painted because original one had a little typical rot/rust and a dent so I bought a NICE one for it.

But anyways, it's not a show car type of paint job BUT overall(except for what I will be mentioning below) it does looks GOOD and paint used to paint is high $ PPG paint and I still have a decent amount left.

So, besides needing inside of trunk lid painted, to be honest, I had my painter tweak factory color just a hair for my liking so under hood/door jams is a shade off but is close enough if u r looking for a driver quality type of car!

If not, detail up these areas.

Also. there's a little place(shown in pics) on rt qt(probably where qt was metaled in at), where it kinda looks like it has a little indention there?.

Not bad, but I've just got to state every PICK that I am aware of.

Also, all flare r brand new and the dummy cracked right one at very bottom(no way does it need replacing and u can't c it unless u r on the ground).

And there r 2 more PICKS.

1, and this makes no sense, on lower half of rear bumper cover, whenever he sprayed it it looks like they're some water marks on it?.

But, they may buff out, if not, only this area could be reshot.

And last, since I cloned it, hood isn't a T'A hood and he did a good job cutting hole in hood for shaker BUT he cut it too small.

Shaker rubs/hits towards rear side(SERIOUSLY tho, this is a GR8 hood and with a little trimming on hood, all will def work out)!

Also, with hole beinga little undercut whenever hood is closed it kind of pushes shaker down a tad too much where ifu don't have it centered JUST RIGHT accelerator cable gets hard(JUST TRIMMING OUT HOOD FOR SHAKER WILL DEFFIX THIS TOO).

Like mentioned about Formula, original floorboards have been patched and they appear/feel really solid but trunk floor has some rot/rust and it def needs to be replaced.

I THINK that I have everything car needs to be finished except for a new trunk floor(again, I think?).

Cars' mtr compartment(mostly mtr itself) needs a lot of detailing(I had planned to do myself, just was/is onits bucket list).

Car has brand new AC compressor, dryer, and belt inside of trunk only needing to be put on.

I bought a kind of air induction flipper/door for shaker, it too needs to be put on.

Lower front valence(drip pan) was like $500.

One park light that it needed was like $200(1 year only light's/part's r not CHEAP or EZ to find)!

Car has brand new BEAUTIFUL plush GREEN correct color carpet AND correctGM rubber floor mats(TRY FINDING THIS COLOR, THESE WERE/R NEW OLD STOCK, NOT REPRODUCED LIKE RED'S, BLUE'S, AND BLACK'S).

I have like $450 in carpet/mats alone.

Seat covers r brand new(FRONT'S ONLY, $400 alone here), there's an easy to address cut tho on top left rear.

Console is in driver quality shape.

I bought new headliner material and a used headliner board in FAIR shape but never glued material to board or ever installed it.

I added a decent-nice FAT T/A strg wheel and a T/A dash bezel.

This is super cool, original green seat belts were badly faded and I bought some $250 new old stock GREEN seat belts for it but never bolted them in.

Car has a nice vintage 2 knob digital stereo.

I added a tachometer(gauge cluster) but from the factory this car did not come with a factory tach BUT I also bought off of eBay a complete dash wirng harness to address added tach situation.

I personally put decals on including the BIRD and I did an EXCELLENT job doing so!

And, its SWEEEEEEET 17" retro wheel's!

NO KIDDING, THEY HAVEN'T EVER ROLLED OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY!

THEY R LITERALLY BRAND STINKING NEW!!! $2,350 WORTH OF WHEEL'S/TIRE'S!

I had 14"rally's on it originally that r now on my Formula.

I got this car from its 2nd owner(so I'm told).

And it's a life-long Houston Tx area car.

Guy I got it from told me that mtr, trans, rear end, and front suspension r all from a '77 T/A(AGAIN, THIS IS WHAT I AM TOLD).

THIS CAR RUNS/DRIVES GR8!!!

IT'S A SOLID RUNNER ALL THE WAY!

No way would I suggest doing anything to mtr other than detailing/painting it up!

It's PEPPY exactly like a stock 400 should be BUT the Formula would/will EAT ITS LUNCH ALL DAY LONG!

The trans shifts out/performs good BUT ever since I got it park hasn't held(this happened to my '69 Camaro and my mechanic adjusted something and it fixed it) AND its front trans seal is SHOT!

It has a bad leak that has gotten even worse!

So, there's some work needed here!

All and all tho, if u r a 'car-guy' like I am, this is a simple bucket list to address!

If u r looking for'show-cars' these r notBUT if u r on kind of a budget looking for some cool/lite project's then u will LOVE these!

Again, I'm honestly NOT dying to sell them!

I've owned/restored MANY car's throughout my life!

A lot of PERSONAL things have affected meover the past few year's(death's in the family, POS family fights, a new baby) and I've just been OFF!

I should have had this car finished 3 year's ago but instead, it came out of the garage today for the first time in14 month's!

And, I hadn't really even thought about selling either one soooo...

They r what they r BUT they r def a GR8 investment like just aboutmost Classic car's r!

At this point Ireally only want to keep the pair OR neither(I'm weird like this, I like to have pair's of something).

Ineed to find a new paint and body guy but I just haven't found one in my area yet.

The one's near to me either want a fortune for a paint job or else they do CRAP work and I need to find someone in the middle(this is why Yellow car doesn't have new paint yet, this and I've changed my mind 5 x's about what color topaint it and then sometimes I dig it being Yellow).

Last, color on Green car in reality is between what u c is 2 pics of it.

I'll be taking more pics of it tho and adding them soon.

Oh, and so there is no confusion, Yellow car only is being sold with 14's, I had threw on a couple of 17's just to c how it looked with them(14's r like new tho).

Thanks for looking, please message me first tho before hitting buy it now.

I will require an immediate nonrefundable$500.00 PayPal deposit if u hit my buy it now and then full balance will be do within 3 business day's.

Also, I can recommend a fast/reliable auto transporter if needed.

Thanks for looking.
