1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 455

This 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 455 H.O., 4 speed, with original Frigidaire Factory Air Conditioning is Exceptionally Rare! Extensive research of available documentation establishes almost 80 (eighty) similarly equipped Pontiac Firebird Formulas were manufactured in 1971. Using the US Department of Transportation’s scrappage rate of 6.3% (attrition), for gasoline vehicles in this weight class, less than 4 of these vehicles remain in the world! It’s entirely possible this is the only one with original parts, or it could be the last ONE altogether! This gem is for the unique individual that desires something truly extraordinary.

A solidly documented, nut & bolt Frame-off/Rotisserie authentic restoration was completed to this Numbers Matching Formula in 2010. The fit and finish is a much higher standard than when the 455 H.O. was new. The car looks beautiful and with its Muncie 4 speed (Rock Crusher) and Rochester Quadra-Jet 4 BBL carburetor it runs better than it looks! The car runs like it was new. (The present owner knows it runs like new because he owned a brown 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 455 H.O, 4 speed, with Factory Air in 1971). All components of the car operate, including the original Frigidaire Factory Air Conditioning. The Original Window Sticker and keys are included. This car is AMAZING!

This Formula retains original sheet metal, original numbers-matching driveline, and much factory original documentation from Day One. Purchased new on April 19, 1971 from Von Schledorn Pontiac in Menomonee Falls Wisconsin, this Formula has had only two previous owners. (Protect-O-Plate included). It’s finished in its factory original color, Laurentian Green (Code M – 1971 color swatches included) with Saddle color Bucket Seats (Code 213).
The Laurentian Green paint is buffed & polished to a mirror-like shine. All chrome & original stainless trim is in show quality condition. You can walk around this Formula and not find a bad angle. The authentic restoration on this car is wonderful. The undercarriage is show-ready. The stock Rally 2 steel Wheels and rocker moldings are original.

1971 was the year Pontiac’s 455 H.O. engine achieved 480 Foot Pounds of torque. A desirable quality of the 455 H.O. engines was the Select Fit process during line assembly of the engines. This allowed for closer tolerances resulting in a nearly blueprinted engine – direct from the factory. (Torque dropped to 415 ft. lbs. in 1972).

This dual exhaust splendor includes a “Hurst” shifter, front fender extractors, an Endura bumper, side door guard beams, a 160 mph speedometer, and 8000 RPM tachometer.

Original factory options include:
C60 – Frigidaire Factory Air Conditioning.
LS5 – 455 H.O. engine with Rochester Quadra-Jet 4 BBL carburetor.
M-22 – Muncie Rock-Crusher 4 speed HD Close ratio transmission and 3.42 Sure Grip Rear Differential
N41 – Variable Ratio Power Steering.
J50 – Power Brakes.
Y99 – Handling Package.
NK3 – Formula Steering Wheel.
C50 – Rear Window Defogger. U58 – AM-FM Stereo Radio. U30 – Rally Gauge Cluster Clock & Tachometer. D55 – Center Console. AK1 – Custom Seat Belts with Shoulder Harnesses. A01 – Soft Ray tinted glass all windows. B80 - Roof Drip Scalp Moldings. B96 – Moldings Wheel Openings. W54 – Custom Trim, includes Trunk Mat, Rear Quarter ash trays, Door handle inserts, Roof Panel Insulation.

The perfect Saddle interior looks exactly like it did 49 years ago. Every single item was addressed during the restoration process and all of the original gauges, lights, blinkers, wipers, AM-FM Stereo pushbutton radio, etc. are in working condition. Even the lighter pops out hot! Absolutely nothing needs to be addressed. The original floor mats are included. The trunk area is completely restored including the original trunk mat, and original jack assembly.

Inside the clean engine bay is the original numbers-matching 455 H.O. motor. The block is original to the car, but also the heads, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, carburetor, distributor, etc. are all born-with components. In order to establish genuine authenticity of this vehicle, we can provide the documentation, invoices, and more than 300 photos of the restoration. This automobile runs, drives & performs beautifully in every way. You’ll be blown away by the 480 Ft. Lbs. of Torque and the original, throaty muscle car era sounding exhaust system.

Also included with your purchase is the 1971 Firebird Owner’s Manual, the Dealer’s Invoice, a copy of the Original Certificate of Title, the 1971 AMA Specifications Form, a previously mounted Panasonic 8-Track player, and more.

This classic has been perfectly stored under a Pontiac Formula custom sized and shape “California Car Cover” since the restoration. Since restoration the car has never had water on it. The body is regularly cleaned with Meguiar's Quik Mist & Wipe Detailer. It’s intentionally driven minimally enough to ensure it remains in excellent operating condition. (Only 2,200 miles in 10 years – always on a dry, clear day). The car is certainly trustworthy and reliable. It always starts right-up and runs forever without overheating, even in idle. It doesn't burn or leak fluids. The car needs zero repairs. Everything is in outstanding working order.
Due to its extraordinary value, a Lo-Jack Early Warning is installed on the vehicle. Title on the vehicle is “Clean”. The owner always has the vehicle Registered with the state and has always had a “Guaranteed Value” insurance policy with Hagerty Classic Automobile.

This unique treasure is an excellent investment grade American Muscle Car. Its condition and rarity will certainly continue to increase its value. Taking into account its utmost rarity, authenticated originality, all numbers-matching driveline, no-expense spared rotisserie restoration, and massive amount of original documentation, it will be impossible to find a more perfect example of a 1971 Pontiac Formula 455 H.O., with Factory Air Conditioning, and Muncie 4 speed, anywhere At Any Price
