    79 Firebird Formula 400CI V8 Turbo 400 MD

    Pics will be up soon...Bought this as a project jsut dont have time for it. Has exhaust leak...Flowmaster dual chamber muffler, and pipes from cat back. Has been on for a while and has some rust spots. Also has mid pipe from heads to cat, Like new.


    The good
    Clear Title
    Starts right up and runs and Shifts great for its age.
    79k Original miles
    400 Cubic Inch V8
    Turbo 400 transmission
    Original Honeycomb wheels and tires.
    The interior is Near Mint. Arm rest needs to be replaced. Seats are Great along with dash, Completely original.
    Brakes are fine.
    Drives nice for age. Is driveable.


    The bad.
    Body is pretty solid for age. No dents. Straight body. Has rust on bottom of doors, and some facial on roof. Needs body work, and paint and would be fine.
    Needs tune up
    Needs exhaust
    Rear wuarter needs some work, Can get whole new quarter for 350.00

    Other than that not much to say about it. For being 30 years old the car runs Very good. . Dont expect a perfect car it does need work. Motor is strong and car is pretty fast also. Shifts nice. tires have great tread left may be dry rotted car has been sitting for a while.






    This is the spot on the Rear quarter. It was attmpted to be fixed before I got it and not done right.

    Meant to add no shipping unless buyer sets up and pays for it.

    Re: 79 Firebird Formula 400CI V8 Turbo 400 MD

    Yeah the car is pretty powerful..And the reason I got it really was because it had that motor and trans in it. I already have everything to rebuild the motor....But jsut dont feel like takeing it on at this time.

    And another reason was the interiot, It is **** near mint! Completely original, and the seats and dash look brand new. Im gonna take more pics tomorrow, I ended up cleaning the inseide up a little today didnt have much else to do, I might bondo some of the small spots sand and prep it for paint....And if I cant sell I will cut the rear quarter out and replace it....Id love to keep the car, but body work and paint are gonna rip me.

    Yeah I dont like bondo to much, Its like a cover up. So I will only use little amounts of it...I could prob do the rear quarter and get it lookngi right, but to have it that way I would feel safe would be to cut it out and replace it.
