While we all love a real-deal 1977 Pontiac Firebird Formula for its aggressive looks and V8 power, take some time to dig deeper into this one. After all, it's not only affordable, but also those custom leather bucket seats are all-day comfortable.
1977 was a great year for the Firebird. The lights were integrated into the new grille to create a legendary appearance. The Endura front end had a nicely creased center line that was cohesive with the hood, which gave these Firebirds a long and fearsome beak. This Bird still wears it's correct color of code36 Firethorn Red. And this spirit of integration was seen even more on the Formula that now had its famous twin hood scoops better integrated into the overall design. But more than just the front end, we love these Firebirds for an overall sleek design. The European-inspired long hood and short deck profile mixes perfectly with America-style flair on the full width rear spoiler, ornate "snowflake" wheels, and even Mr. Horsepower sitting on the rear. Even the color unites these two worlds by showcasing a bright red flair, but with a deeper more sophisticated tone than many others. And having the Formula decals in a different shade of red is a truly cool styling touch.
The first thing you will notice when you open the door are the seats. They follow a similar pattern to ones available in '77, but you can instantly tell these are special. Not only do they have cool custom stitching with the Formula name and checkered flags, but also when you sit down, you'll realize these are extra plush and covered in supple leather. Plus, there's newer carpeting and even a custom headliner with "Formula" embossed in it. So this performance Pontiac is also quite comfortable. In fact, you even have aa retrosound AM/FM stereo with digital tuner and provisions for air conditioning. But the driver is the one who gets the real treats. You have an upgraded three-spoke sports steering wheel with the Pontiac logo still on the horn cap. Beyond that is a full gauge panel with a large speedo and Pontiac's cool tach/clock combo. And we know your right hand will never want to leave the Hurst shifter.
Under the hood is Pontiac's famous 400 cubic-inch V8. It has a very honest appearance, and you can tell that the major components have been serviced correctly over the years. That's why it fires up with confidence, and makes a nice rumble out of the newer stainless exhaust. And you get complete control over this V8 and its muscle car soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission (a valuable feature during a time when most of these had automatics.) Plus, the power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires make this a great coupe for all conditions.
Cool red on the outside, custom on the inside, and full control of the V8 under the hood that's why you love this Firebird Formula. And the affordable price make you want it right now. So don't wait, call today!
