Very Attractive 1979 Pontiac Firebird
The Pontiac Firebird is an American automobile built by Pontiac from the 1967 to the 2002 model years. Designed as a pony car to compete with the Ford Mustang, it was introduced in 1967, the same model year as GM's Chevrolet division platform-sharing Camaro.
The front end was restyled in 1979 and made it look like a completely different car. The Firebird was Pontiacs version of the Camaro just a little more refined.
Why This Car Is Special
The one we have here at Skyway Classics is painted in white with a brand new tan interior, headliner, and windshield.
It is powered by the Pontiac 301 cubic inch small block V8 that was the standard motor for the 1979 Formula. It provides enough grunt to move the Formula with authority, for 1979, it was more than most of the competition.
This Formula had the base Trans Am performance oriented tuned suspension which included standard 15×7 inch Rally II wheels. With this suspension came standard front discs and rear drums brakes, and this one has new springs, shocks, and exhaust.
The interior could be appointed with all the same luxury and power options available on the Trans Am. Even the Trans Am's famous metal dashboard bezel is standard on this Formula. It also has Air Conditioning, power steering, power brakes, the Original Owner's Manual and paperwork, brand new tan interior,New Headliner, New Windshield, Audio System, Air Conditioning, Power steering, Power brakes, Automatic Transmission, 15×7 inch Rally II wheels, Standard Front Discs and Rear drums brakes, New springs and shocks, New Exhaust, and the Original Owner's Manual and Paperwork.
The odometer shows 73,000 miles and is believed to be true and the Bird had the same owner for 35 years with one repaint over solid body not a bondo special.
Cosmetically the 1979 Formula came with a two-tone paint scheme which consisted of a lower body color that ran the entire length of the car and was incorporated into the lower portion of the front and rear fascias. Separating the lower body color from the main exterior color were stylish stripes which ran the entire length of the car. The lower body color was also used to accent the front portion of the twin hood scoops.
The Pontiac Formula Firebird that we have here at Skyway Classics is gorgeous and will make a great car for the new owner. Come see it before you buy it.
