1970 Firebird Formula 400
Recently restored, numbers matching Formula 400 in original castillian bronze with saddle interior. This is a very original, true Formula 400 (VIN 22687) that has been restored as a high quality driver. Trim tag is TR 205 67 B, 04B W66. Numbers matching 400 4 bbl engine (YS code), 400 turbohydramatic transmission. Paint is professional base/clear and is very good to excellent quality. Interior has been completely redone with new seat covers, new door panels, new dash pad, new headliner, new package tray and new carpet. Tires are new 15" BFG white letter, wheels were sandblasted, epoxy primed and repainted, center caps and lug nuts are new.
Factory A/C - see pictures for components in place- I am not an expert and have made no attempt to test or use. The engine compartment is very original, with factory correct clips, brackets, etc - the HEI distributor and 7028263 quadrajet carb are not original. Undercarriage is solid, no rust but not detailed, has some partial, old undercoating intact. Many other new parts, way too many to list. This car is not a perfect show car but as stated, a very nice , very original car. There are some small issues that I have not taken the time to complete - you may or may not think they are significant - such as there is a small crack in one taillight lens, the headliner is marked for shoulder belts but I have not located or installed them, there is a crack in the corner of the windshield, the cover on the driver's interior door handle is marginal, and missing on the passenger side. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have before bidding.
Formula Firebirds are appreciating in value in the long term. This one is for sale because I lost my storage and some health issues make simplifying life a priority. The buy it now price is below my actual cost, not including anything for labor. As with any purchase of a car on the internet, please ask questions before bidding - I will be happy to answer any questions you may have to ensure that there are no surprises. The car can be inspected on request. It is being sold as-is, and a $500 deposit is required by paypal within 24 hours of auction end, the balance by bank wire transfer prior to delivery. It is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.
I will deliver this car to the POCI GTOAA Co-vention in Dayton for a small delivery fee. Otherwise the buyer is responsible for pickup and shipping from my driveway.
