Description

Will try one more time. Ya'll are going to have to do alot better than last time. I started the auction where it ended last time to avoid all the low ball bidders. You will not find a nicer Firebird in this price range I can guarantee. Not in the midwest anyway. It's not perfect but all the hard work has been done i.e. paint, engine and interior. Consider what you would spend on a cheaper car to get it in this kind of condition. $2k for rebuilt motor, $3k paint job, at least $1k on new interior parts and the list goes on. I won't be relisting this car again so bid now. Good luck and check out the youtube video.
History: Originally this car was a Texas car not a Michigan rust bucket. It has a Texas Public Safety sticker for 2007 and a University of Texas sticker in the back window. Both could be removed but lend credence to the history. A gentleman in Minnesota purchased the car in 2007 and shortly thereafter lost his job. After watching the car for sale on ebay several times I finally bid and won the car. I took a train to Minnesota and drove the car back to northern Michigan. It drove great at 70 mph and got about 20 mpg. I believe I have the original dash gauges with the actual miles but i stuck it in a box when i added the rally gauges. Will see if i can dint it but I believe it was not over 150k miles.
Was restored and painted around 2006 or 2007 but I don't recall exactly what the previous owner told me. To reiterate, this is a Firebird Formula Clone and NOT a true Formula car. It has a rebuilt 1968 Pontiac 350 for a motor and a TH 350 for a transmission. Both work great. As 1973 was a tough emissions year this car only has a 2 barrel carb, single exhaust and open differential i believe. It was an AC car and has power front disc brakes. This is not a restomod car. It is accurately restored to look like a Formula from that year. The engine isn't all fancied up but it has power to spare. Engine bay is dusty but relatively unmolested and original. This car is relatively unmolested which is a rarity these days. It has the non functional ram air hood, Formula fender badges and hood lettering as well as rally gauges and steering wheel. With a 4 barrel intake, dual exhaust and posi this car would be a screamer. As it sits now it is very fast and easily breaks loose the open diff.
There really is nothing major wrong with this car. It is not a show car per se but I am not embarrassed to take it to shows and get many compliments on the car. Some trim pieces are worn and could stand to be replaced or touched up with dye and thats about all. Possibly different rear tires if you aren't into the shackled up look. It has a new headliner, rear package tray, seat vinyl and carpet. Console is in good condition but could use a new console storage bin cover. Dash is decent(one small crack and one section peeling up at the edge) with wood grain in great condition. All gauges but the oil pressure work fine. Heat works, AC does not. Wheels have been restored and paint looks good with only a few minor dings from being driven. Good brakes and plenty of tire tread. Rides very nice for a 41 year old car. I've probably only put 1000 miles on it since i got it home driving to and from car shows, cruises and sunday drives. Silver/Black is not the original scheme. I believe it was Tan/Camel interior and Blue or Red exterior. I did find a small dent in the lower fascia in the center top that looks like i may have bumped something into when putting it under the car. I think you can see it in the front pic right in the center top next to the mounting bolt.
NO RUST! Appears to be all original sheet metal. No patches and can be driven confidently anywhere. I have some trim pieces I can include as well as a parts car and other misc parts if the price is right.
Reason I am sellingtooooo many projects and am running out of storage space. This car has never seen snow and only minor rain driving home from rained out car shows. Always garage kept for the last 7 years.
I plan to enjoy this car all summer unless it sells. If it doesn't sell then it goes back into storage.
This car is in southern Michigan but I would be willing to deliver within a couple hundred miles for the price of gas and an airplane/bus/train ticket back home.
Email with any questions you may have. Emails that even remotely resemble spam will be deleted. If you want to talk then send me your phone number. I've put in the time to write an informative ad and put pictures up so don't waste my time.
My reserve price is set at what I paid for the car 7 years ago so I think it's more than fair.
I put a video on youtube of the car. If you search "1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula Clone" you should be able to view the video. Thanks for the bids and good luck.
