Description for Pontiac Firebird 1973

1973 Firebird Formula 350

The car was restored by myself 10 years ago, pretty much bottom up. It only has a little over 3K miles on it since the restore. I did not do a numbers matching restore, just a good looking fun muscle car. It's at home on the track but still fun to drive to car shows or car events. It gets a lot of attention.

There are some issues yet to be resolved but I do not have time anymore to complete the project:

· Cooling – could use an aluminum radiator and dual fan upgrade. Runs cool while driving but in heavy traffic or long car show lines it will get hot.

· Passenger Window – motor sticks and roll s up slow. I have spare used motors.

· Windshield Crack – picture attached, crack on lower passenger side

· Oil Leak – minor dripping of oil from rear of oil pan, looks like rear pan seal has shrunk from sitting for long periods in garage. Rear shaft seal on transmission needs replaced, appears to only leak when front is jacked up in the air, again probably from not being driven enough.

· Paint – looks really good, but a detailed inspection will find what you would expect from a 10-year-old paint job. Small crack on passenger rear qtr., front nose cracked.

· 3400 stall is great for launching at the track, but if going to be primarily street I would change to 2500 stall.

· Speedometer – it does not have the original speedometer, which is noted on the title, it’s been in car since I purchased and showed 82,200.
