Description for Pontiac Firebird 1979

1979 FIREBIRD ESPRIT RED BIRD EDITION .This is a Rare Car .It is in in Very Very Good and Clean Survivor Condition . A Great Driver Condition Car .
I Bought this Car from the Original Owner that Loved this Car for the last 38 Years .He lived in the far Eastern part of the Province of Quebec and he was Barely Driving this Car over the last 10 - 12 Years and He decided to let it go due to his age and his Health . He claimed to burn less than one tank full of gas per Year over the last 10 - 12 Years .He bought the Car New in December 29 1978 .It was One of Only 10 1979 Firebird Red Birds Sold in the Province of Quebec and One of Only 177 Imported for Sale to Canada .
Only 177 of these 1979 Firebird Red Bird Edition Cars came into Canada for sale throughout all of the Country , making these Cars Extremely Rare here in Canada as most did Not Survive our Salted Winter Roads being Driven through Winters and they eventually rusted away . A Rare site to see one in this Country .
It has had a Professionally andCompletely Rebuilt .03, 350 Pontiac Engine with an RV Camshaft and Valve-Springsto Match . A Complete 3 Angle Valve Jo, All New Pistons and Rings .03, All New Bearings and Seal, Gasket, High Pressure Oil Pum, Timing chain and Gear, ec, ect and only has 11000 km's or 7000 Miles on the Rebuilt Engin, and the owner had a shop put on some Headers and a Nice 2 1/2 inch Stainless Steel Dual Exhaust System . A Great Motor that will last a lifetime .The Motor and Car Sound, Looks and Runs Great .
This Car is a Great Highway Machin, burying the Speedo in a Heartbeat with the Freshly Built Pontiac Motorand just keeps Pulling and Pulling and Going and Going . This Car must do about 140 miles an hour at Top Speed .The Odometer shows Less than 74000 Original km's as this was made for export to Canada from the USA . That's 46000 Miles .The Speedo show's Km's on the Outside in Big Numbers with the Miles on the inside in Smaller Numbers as this was built to be exported to the Canadian Market . The Odometer Reads in Km's onl, for the CanadianMarket .A USA Firebird Red Bird Speedo would be the Opposite with Miles on the Outside in Big Numbers and have the Km's on the Inside in Smaller Numbers and the Odometer would Read in Miles only .Either wa, it is still a Very Rare Special Edition Car .
He also added a Security Power cut off Switch under the dash as well as an AuxiliaryElectric Pusher Fan up front and added Black Aluminum Rear Window Louvers that give the Car an Extra Appeal .He had a Chrome Air Breather that I replace with the Red K&N Style Breather with Topper .
This Car Runs Very Nice and Cool all Day long with Out having to using the AuxiliaryElectric Pusher Fan . It runs at 180 - 190 Degrees without the AuxiliaryFan when Hot and stuck in traffic . With the AuxiliaryFan o, it runs at a Very Cool 160 Degrees all day long .
This Car is 99% Rust Free as it was Extensively Oil-sprayed and Greased Yearly before being put away each and Every Winter as the regionof the Province of Quebec that this owner lived in had Very Long and Hard Winters and a Very Short and Quick Summers for Driving his Summer-Time Only Pride and Joy .This Car was Never Winter Driven and always Very Well Maintained and Mature Owned .
I have all the Factory Original Documents and the Original Bill of Sale from December 29 1978 from the Original Owner that kept and Loved this Car for the last 38 Years .
The Car Runs Great and most Everything Works as it should . The clock does stop from time to time and needs to be tapped to get it to started again . A little fine oiling would fix this clock to run continually . Some days the clock runs all day long . Also only one rear speakers is working and the other is blown out.
It features the Full Red Bird Gauge and AppearancePackage with the Two Toned Paint Scheme and all the Smokey and the Bandit Gold Pin-stripping and all the Gold Pin-Stripping Dividing the Two Tone Pain, and running down the Center of the Hood as well as the Red Bird Emblems and the Red Colored Rims with Red Bird Center Capsand the Gold Front Grillsand an 8 Thousand RPM Tach that has a Gold Anodized Metal turned Dash Bezel that has sincefaded out and has the Gold Anodized Spokes on the Red Bird Steering Wheel that still maintains all it's Gold Anodized Coloring . It has a Nice Gold Colored Bird Emblem on the Horn Button and a Nice Gold Colored Bird Emblem on the Metal turned Dash Bezel . These Gold Bird Emblems were exclusive to the Red Birds .Phoenix Graphics sells a Gold film Kit to Renew the Gold Tint to the Bash Bezel Surround if so desired.
This Car has Good Working P, P, Til, Heate, R-Defogge, Light, Hor, Wiper, AM/FM Stereo with Cassette and P-Trunk and all the RED BIRD Options .All the Gauges Work Great as do all the Exterior and Interior Light, Hor, Heate, Rear Defogge, Wiper, P-Trun, Brake, ec, ect . Only the issues listed above in this ad are not working fully . The Clock works when it wants and a rear speaker needs replacing . All else Works as it Should .
The Chassis and Body is all Factory Original Metal with No Patch-Work or Bondo .The Car was Repainted 20 years ago due to the Paint Fading out and never had any Rust Issuesor Repairs done .This is a Very Solid Car .
The Headliner was redone in a Beautiful Plush Button Tuf, as the Original Headliner was starting to let loos, so he had it done to his liking instead of the Original Style .See Pics .This Car is a Very Rare and Very Well and Cared for Canadian 1979 Firebird Red Bird .Not many Survived in Canada nor did many Survive in the USA .When is the last time you saw a 1979 Firebird Red Bird in your Town or City ?
This is Not a Show Car but it does Show Very well as it is and would a Great Cruise Night and weekend Car Show Car just as it is or it would be an easy Resto to make it a True Show Car if so desired.This is a Very Rare Car and in Great Survivor Condition and Great Driving Condition .It isa Blast to Drive and this Car Createsa Buzz Everywhere it goe, as most People have never seen a 1979 Firebird Red Bird Edition Car .
