1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula

Why This Car Is Special

Out of over 211,000 Firebirds produced in 1979, less than 10% were Formulas. On top of that, this car has under 75,000 actual miles! It is a time capsule.

Mechanical

This Firebird Formula is powered by the Pontiac 301 CID V8 that is backed by a Turbo 350 automatic transmission. This car has power steering and power brakes and drives great. It takes you right back to 1979. Front disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power for this long and low muscle car.

Interior

Camel vinyl interior is a classy look, but the high back bucket seats let you know this is a muscle car. The center console and aluminum accent on the dash really make this interior pop. The dash is unlike any other car with big gauges surrounded by an aluminum piece that runs down 2/3 of the dash and is polished in a pattern that makes it look like it's sparkling. The steering wheel is as sporty as they come and a new CD player has been installed in the dash. To the right of the steering wheel you have controls for heat and A/C. This Formula is an A/C car and it has been updated.

Exterior

The 1979 was a new look for the Firebird and Trans Am with a new front end. It also marked the 10th anniversary for the Trans Am, and had an anniversary model to celebrate. This Formula has classic Rally wheels wrapped in Cooper Cobra radial raised white letter tires. A special hood and “Formula” graphics down the rocker panels. The view from the back is as good as they come. A big spoiler, one big taillight panel that looks very futuristic for a 1979, dual exhaust tips aimed almost straight down like a 69 Trans Am and the word “Formula” to set it all off.

Conclusion

This low mileage collectible has a great look and would make a great first classic car, or an addition to a current collection.
