1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula
Looking for a second generation Firebird? Want to go fast? Want to stand out from the sea of Smokey and the Bandit clones?
Stop right there. Blue Marlin Motors has the car for you! This 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula is bad to the bone and ready to go today!
This car has a newer Pontiac 400 under the hood thatís been punched out to 461 cubic inches. Originally, it was equipped with a 4.9 liter 301 cubic inch V8, so weíve got some serious upgrades in the power department on our hands here.
Everything was done to the highest standard. The heads were ported, milled, surfaced, had a 3-angle valve job, the block was decked, and nearly every item was replaced inside the engine. The engine build alone on this car was nearly $9,000 and everything is documented with receipts. To help it breathe, a full exhaust system from Pypes was installed, and the 200R4 transmission was fully built to withstand over 500 horsepower. You can CONFIDENTLY put your foot to the floor in this Pontiac and know that everything is going to hold together for years to come.
This car was done to the highest standard. So high, in fact, that it spent some of its life as part of the collection at the St. Louis Car Museum. Itís finished in Starlight Black, has a black interior, 4-wheel disc brakes, glass t-tops (and the bags for them), power windows, power brakes, and more. You wonít be disappointed when you set foot in this bird. Itís ready to fly Ė are you?
Give us a call or come see it here on location at Blue Marlin Motors in sunny Stuart, Florida. We have a complete restoration book and a folder full of receipts that document the quality of this build. Come see it today and drive it home tomorrow!
