Over a 40 year period the Pontiac Firebird has earned a unique place amongst automotive icons. What started out as another contender in the "Me Too" pony car race ended up becoming so much more, only visionaries at Pontiac such as Delorean could have come up with a coupe like the Firebird that kept the performance fires burning once the mighty GTO was gone. As a collector car, the Firebird has all the right credentials, competition history, a wide variety of power and trim options, various low volume and commemorative models and a healthy helping of nostalgia thrown in for good measure making older versions some of the fastest appreciating American muscle cars available today.
Whether your investing or looking for a way to etch a permanent smile on your face, or both, this 1970 Pontiac Formula 400 represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire one of these rare muscle cars. This numbers matching car was imported into the UK in 1976 and since that time has only had six recorded owners. There is a substantial history file with bills for just over £8000, in July of 2012 the car benefitted from a top end engine rebuild which included replacement of head gaskets, water pump, thermostat housing along with various other replacement parts to keep the heartbeat of this muscle car ticking away for many years to come. Current engine specification includes: plus 30thou flat top forged pistons, bronze valve guides, high lift cam, larger rocker studs, renolds duplex pre stretched timing chain and sprockets, all this for the price of a modern family saloon.
