Classic Car Overview

If youre looking for originality stop searching right now! This survivor car has just over 6,700 miles that have been verified through several documents and maintenance records that come with the car. When the original owner of 43 years purchased this car, he knew it was special! So, he kept all the documents including the original special order sheet, bill of sale, build sheet, and various other paperwork which will be included for the new owner. It was sold to its second owner in 2021 with approximately 5,600 miles on it. He then started mildly freshening up the car and brought it up to his standards. We then purchased the car from him in 2024. The Redbird edition Firebird Esprit was released in 1978 and produced for only two years. This car is a true time capsule from the late 1970s! EXTERIOR: Redbird unique features: Roman Red (which wasnt available on any other 78 Firebird) with Redbird red lower accent. It also features gold striping, red grills and red snowflake wheels. The exterior of this car is great! It has all original sheet metal in place and is straight. The rubber bumpers are excellent. The doors do not sag and easily open and close like a new car. It is still wearing some original paint and some touch up. Overall, it looks beautiful, smooth, and glossy. It does have some mild checking on the 1/4s. The gold striping and graphics are in excellent shape. The original 15 inch snowflake rims have been professionally powder coated inside and out and are wrapped in virtually brand new BF Goodrich radial T/A tires. The original glass including the windshield is crystal clear. All the chrome, trim, lenses and weatherstrips are excellent. This survivor is sure to be adorned and respected by Pontiac enthusiasts wherever you go! INTERIOR: The unique Redbird interior features include carmine red color, gold machine turned dash bezel and a red formula wheel with gold spokes. It is loaded with factory options like deluxe cloth interior, power windows, power door locks, rear defroster, tilt column, AM-FM stereo and rally gauges. As Im in our showroom writing this description a customer came up and started talking with me about the car. I mentioned its originality and cracked the door so they can take a look at the interior. The first thing that came out of his mouth was it still smells new! I think that descriptive pretty much sums up this entire interior. It is nothing short of amazing, its as close to brand new as you will find and its original! Sit inside and you will be instantly transformed back to 1978 when this car rolled off the showroom floor. The headliner does not sag, dash area is pristine, the seats show zero wear! The door panels are mint, the carpet is even spotless! The steering wheel, center console and shifter, plastic trim are pristine! The cigarette lighter has never been used. It is as close to perfection as you will ever find for a vehicle thats over 40 years old! Its totally amazing! ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine compartment is very similar to the interior as far as originality is concerned! It is very original with some very careful detailing and maintenance. It is showroom fresh! Pontiac used Chevy 350 motors, this one is the original with all its original manifolds, carb, valve covers, air cleaner etc. It is equipped with air conditioning from the factory along with power steering and brakes. The alternator has been replaced, the original radiator has been rebuilt, original master cylinder was rebuilt. but is also original to the car. All the hoses and wires appear to be routed the way the factory would. The backs of the headlights and a/c box are raw fiberglass, hood insulation is mint, horns and squirters are hooked up, etc. It is right, no disappointments here! TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Everything is impressive on this car including the trunk compartment. Lift the lid and youll notice its pristine originality instantly. The bottom of the lid and jamb have factory original paint, stickers and weatherstrip. Trunk light works. Its original insulated mat still looks new; underneath is mint factory original spatter finish paint. The space saver spare tire and jack appear to be original and possibly never removed from the trunk. This is as close as you will find to a perfect factory original trunk from 1978! UNDERSIDE: Underneath looks like a rotisserie restoration. Actually, it is original with some maintenance and painstakingly careful detailing! All the steering and suspension is in excellent shape, the shocks have been replaced. It has disc in front, the calipers look to have been replaced. The lines and e-brake cables are clean. The exhaust system has recently been upgraded with a custom Pypes stainless dual exhaust that has an x-pipe and Turbo Pro mufflers. The exhaust exits behind the rear wheels through a pair of chrome splitter exhaust tips. The gas tank and fuel lines have a fresh look to them. Looking up at the motor and everything looks sharp with crisp blue paint and no visible leaks. The Turbo 350 transmission looks fantastic with no leaks as well. The 10 bolt rear end looks great with smooth black paint applied. The frame is solid and has been freshened up with satin black paint. The floors are solid and rust free, they were carefully freshened with a coat of factory style red oxide primer. What a great looking mostly original underbody! SERVICE: Our team of professional mechanics has completed a thorough inspection on this car. No items were found to need repair or replacement which is a rarity. This car is in remarkable condition mechanically! This car is extremely special and has been lovingly preserved since day one! The investment potential of this nearly 100% original special edition vehicle promises nothing but upside in the future! Its a sure win! Loaded with options and documents you just cant lose with a car as exceptional as this! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership. 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP Air conditioning Power steering Power brakes Front disc brakes Power windows Power door locks Rear defroster Rally gauges Soft ray glass Lamp group AM/FM stereo Tilt wheel Center console 15x8 Snowflakes Redbird package Documentation
