1976 Pontiac Firebird Esprit
This 1976 Pontiac Firebird Esprit has a terrific factory-correct color, loaded A/C interior, and the original V8 under the hood. So if you want an affordable classic that will make others think you paid a ton more, read on for all the details.
Carousel Red is the name of that paint you can't take your eyes off of. It's the factory color, and it's arguably the best to come from Pontiac. Chevrolet made the same shade famous when they called Hugger Orange, and Pontiac only applied it to the coolest cars, like The Judge GTO. And for the '76 Firebird you wanted something this bold. After all, it was the first year for the fully integrated urethane bumpers that give this Pontiac a uniform appearance of a more modern sports car. Plus, you get the right elements like the Rally II wheels and the duck tail rear spoiler for a sporty finish. But beyond getting all the iconic components right, this is fundamentally a very nice coupe, with straight body panels, bright trim, and doors that can be closed with confidence.
The tan interior looks great against the fiery red exterior, and the plushness of the bucket seats reminds introduces to a premium classic interior. Power windows, a center console, power steering, and wood paneling on the dash give you a true feeling of '70s premium. This one is so authentic that even the 8-track player is still in the dash! But there is one upgrade that you won't see but absolutely feel an upgrade to cold R134a air conditioning. This makes for a fantastic driver. You'll love slipping behind the three-spoke factory wheel. It gives you a clear view of the full gauge panel with a large speedo and Pontiac's cool tach/clock combo.
Under the hood is the original 350 cubic-inch V8 and it's mated to the original TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. It has a very honest appearance, and you can tell that the major components have been serviced correctly over the years. That's why it fires up with confidence, and makes a nice rumble out of the newer stainless dual exhaust. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you can see there has been plenty of the right investments keeping this coupe running fine, including a new front sway bar, new bushings, and new brake calipers for the front disc brakes. So you're going to like how this feel out on the road.
Cool red on the outside, comfy on the inside, and the right mix of originality and investments under the hood that's why you love this Firebird. And the affordable price makes you want it right now. So don't wait, call today!
