Classic Car Overview

1997 Pontiac Firebird Formula Convertible By 1953, the research team had produced the Firebird XP-21, later referred to as the Firebird I, which was essentially a jet airplane on wheels. It was the first gas turbine-powered car tested in the United States. The design is entirely impractical, with a bubble-topped canopy over a single-seat cockpit, a bullet-shaped fuselage made entirely of fiberglass, short wings, and a vertical tail fin. A small version adorns the top of the Harley Earl Trophy given each year to the winner of the Daytona 500 This rounded off version of the iconic Firebird right out of 1997 remains in very nice condition even with 116,126 miles. It sports a new convertible top, and a 5.7 liter V8. Exterior Mystic Teal Metallic base coat and clear coat adorn the straight panels of this car. Virtually no chrome and all composite bumpers and front and rear parts come together to form this aerodynamic and slightly lighter car than the Trans Am version. The lines of this car blend seamlessly to form the final shape, all smooth and aerodynamic. All green. A few very minor faults throughout in the form scratches pin the passenger rear bumper/wrap around, and chips around the wheel wells. The white canvas convertible top is in beautiful condition and moves up and down seamlessly. A molded plastic in black hides the top when in the down position. 5 spoke polished wheels are wrapped by Cooper rubber on all 4 corners. Interior No Kodachrome for this interior (it gives us the nice bright colors!) just pure black and white. These tones mix together in the door panels with their molded armrests and speaker surrounds in black and a white insert...sexy! Inside high back leather covered buckets for the front and a 2 plus 2 bench in back, offer up comfy seating for 4. In the center a black console races toward the dash, housing a glovebox, cup holders and the shifter on the way. As we rise upward, sculpted lines abound where temp wheels and a killer AM/FM/CD player with a built in eq are factory installed. Above are 3 eyeball vents to funnel air anywhere you want. A semicircular arch is in front of the steering wheel and underneath its padded visor we see 2 in trisecting circular gauges and a lineup of V shapes just below to convey all the vocals to the driver. Above is a black liner to the convertible top and below more clean black carpeting. Drivetrain A 5.7 liter LT1 V8 which puts out 305hp is under the hood. This sits in a super clean and shiny environment with little to no corrosion. This mill is fuel injected and has a T56 6 speed manual transmission and a 10 bolt 3.43 rear. Undercarriage Some heavier surface rust on the usual suspects, but floor pans and rockers as well as most of the underside is a nice green painted steel. Independent coil spring suspension for the front, and torque arm with coil springs for the rear. Power disc brakes are all around. Drive-Ability A quick starter, smooth driver and some nice power. Overall, a good used car. The top-down option is just fab! Note, the radio has no display or volume control. Right out of 1997, this green bird is ready to have its key turned and driven away for more fun. Look at it as your screaming chicken-less Formula Firebird lighting the tires up.
