Firebird Formula NHRA Edition
1 OF ABOUT 85 RARE NHRA PACKAGE, LAST YEAR OF THE FIREBIRD, ONLY 9K MILES, DOCS!
An affordable all-black T-top 2002 Pontiac Firebird Formula with a rumbling LS1 V8 under the hood is already a tempting proposition. So when it's an exceptionally limited NHRA Special Edition (likely 1 of 85 ever optioned in this way) a rare future classic has never been so affordable or appealing.
2002 was the final year of the Firebird, and so that makes for a very extraordinary Special Edition car. Thus, this one has always been a true collector's coupe from day one, and it's great to see that the previous owners treated it that way. That's why the original black paint is in excellent condition, and let's face it, you love Firebirds in this mean color the best. It looks especially cool on the Formula body that includes that cool aggressive ram air scoop in the front. The factory gloss black covers nearly every inch of this coupe, and it so it makes a great canvas for the bright NHRA Special Edition badges and the checkered flag Pontiac graphics. And the 16-inch chrome alloy wheels are the perfect finishing touch to make it a bold standout package.
The dark attitude continues inside with the full Ebony interior. Such few miles means very little seat time in the black leather buckets, and the driver's one is even power adjustable. This is a special edition car, and so you'll be happy to see it loaded with all the best features. This includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, keyless entry, steering wheel mounted controls, AM/FM/CD stereo with equalizer, and air conditioning. The last one is especially nice because you can keep the car ice cold even with the T-tops out. Beyond just luxury features, a modern classic also means modern safety, too. So you get items like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes.
Under the hood is the 310 hp LS1 fuel-injected V8 that this special edition has always had from day one. In fact, the entire engine bay looks like a fresh time capsule. The lightweight all-aluminum powerhouse eclipses just about every other muscle car powerplant of the era, and it'll still get over 20 mpg, which is far more than most other muscle machines. And this powerful/useful dual nature is exactly how you should view this coupe. It has great everyday features like a four-speed transmission w/overdrive and power steering. Then there are the performance features like the four-wheel disc brakes, Good year Eagle tires, and the Firebird's reputation for great handling. It all comes together for a collector car that's great for every situation.
Complete with the original window sticker and owner's manual, this is a babied classic that has averaged less than 650 miles annually. The only concern is that you better hurry up before someone else sees the value price on this modern classic. Call today!!!
