Description
Well what can we say about this? How about “the 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 "Bullnose" is one of the most striking genuine Muscle cars ever produced!!” This very special example has been the subject of a full body and paint restoration, a fully re-built and upgraded high-output 400 V8, new automatic TH400 gearbox, new black leather interior, rebuilt 3.08:1 Posi 10 bolt rear and refurbished 15-inch Honeycomb wheels fitted with General Grabber tyres. And these are just the highlights - the exhaustive history and restoration file makes for good bedtime reading! Also, featured and on the front cover of American Car Magazines September 2012 edition along with mentions and photos in American Auto News December 2013. Copies of both publications come with it. Also copy of its California Title and (part) Factory build sheet. The complete engine rebuild and fitting of new TH400 gearbox was only completed August 2016 and the 1000 mile running-in is now complete and with new Royal Purple oil and filter is set to be driven and enjoyed! All the mechanical work has been carried out by a well-known specialist engine builder here in the North East who is also responsible for the custom made stainless steel headers and dual exhaust system. Invoices for these alone come to £14566! The new supple black leather seats with Formula 400 stitched decals, new door panels and carpets were also only fitted last year and are consequently as new and with the single broad black stripe and Firebird decals compliment the red paintwork beautifully. Total recent expenditure just over £17000. All invoices referred to above are included along with the earlier body restoration, photo record and general history file and are available when viewing the car. A valuation from the Chairman of the Pontiac Owners Club UK dated 2012 states the value at £25000-this of course is well before its recent expenditure. A further agreed insurance value from 2016 of £30000 is attached from Footman James. Fitted with a Trans Am machined dash (the original is supplied) and Sony Bluetooth/USB/MP3 Audio System and supplied with spare wheel and tools and spare set of keys. Will come with a new MOT and 6-months Warranty. Please call if you would like to know more or make an appointment to view this quite exceptional Formula 400. Part exchange considered.
