Description for Pontiac Firebird 1976

1976 Firebird Formula / Trans am Conversion Project



- This car is nearly complete and is missing the AC unit that mounts on the firewall that is still available because this is a Vintage Air conversion and they have the part in stock.

- 75K miles

- Fresh 400 YS 1971 GTO engine casting #481988 and I can obtain the data codes if needed.

- 6X heads with the smaller CCs for improved compression, including bolt on rocker studs.

- New Ram Air III comp camshaft, lifters and push rods.

- Hedman shorty headers coated

- Interior is in very good shape and does not have that old car smell.

- Seats are from a Gen 4 fbody and I have the driver’s seat in storage.

- Rust free

- Aluminum radiator and aftermarket console mounted gauges.

- 3.23 Posi 10 bolt rear end

- Turbo 350

- Trans Am fenders and vents are included with the front end nose as well.

- I will add more photos of the interior and fenders later this weekend as I just purchased them and will pick them up soon

- GTA 3rd Gen steering box for quicker response was installed and the steering is tight, no slop.

- New Tie rod ends Trans am

- Used 76 TA hood and shaker

- Trans am steering wheel and parts to convert the steering wheel

- I have the Formula fenders that were cut for Camaro vents that go with the car. I was going to add TA fenders instead.

- Trunk is in good shape and is not rusty.

- The underneath of the car is rust free.

- The car has been in dry storage for 7 years and started occasionally.

- Newer exhaust with the factory looking TA tips.

- I can bolt on the fenders and hood so it can be shipped easier, just let me know before purchasing the car so we can be on the same page.

Engine details:The short block has forged pistons and 4 bolt mains. The person I bought it from said that a car was built with this fresh motor but the owner decided to up the power by switching to a 455 so this short block became available and I bought it and verified the internals. I had no idea what cam was in it I just replaced it with the RA III which is a good fit for a 3.23 Firebird with a stock stall speed torque converter. The car was originally a 350 and had a blown bottom end with fresh 6x heads on it so I know they were perfect for the 400 and swapped them.
