1972 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400
Up for auction is a rare 1972 Firebird Formula 400 4 spd I bought several years ago from someone local who got the car from the California owner.
Car is an original400 4 barrel 4 speed car (not the more common 2 barrel)
1972 Pontiac Firebird 400 - Due to plant strikes only 5249 formulas were made in 1972 and of those only 1082 were the 4 speed manual cars.
1972 models are the rarest 2 gen Firebirds by far due to low production that year.

I have never actually checked but when I bought it the seller who I know well and fully trust told me it has the Original Numbers Matching Drivetrain
I had a local shop do quite a bit of work to the powertrain over the last several years. List of what has been done:Hydraulic CL51-600-5 Cam installed with new valve seals & springs (good road cam for added power without gettingridiculous)Repainted engine block and fan bladeHeaders added (I have original manifolds)Full dual exhaust replaced with period correct exhaust tipsDistributor HEI ignition addedTach added tosteeringcolumnClutch linkage replacedDrive shaft yoke replaced 8/2014New Spark plugs/wiresNew battery 8/2014New tires and factory rims in 2014 since car had aftermarket rims when I bought it. Very few miles on them since.I put in a TA steering wheel and hurst shifter but I have the originals for both that came with the car.
Extra parts I have that come with car:Chrome trim surrounds for window - prob need refinishingDash with the original correct woodgrain insert, both in great shape ready to go in the carOriginal 4 spd shifter and steering wheelBoth front grillsClassic Industries bought parts: Headliner, Ram Air stickers, door locks, door weatherstripping with the felt lined window bead rails.
As you can see by the photos, it is in primer as it was when I bought it. Car is overall in good shape and mainly just needs a paint job.
I recovered the front seats and laid sound/heat insulation with carpet last year. I have a replacement dash that is not in the car and a new headliner from classic industries that just needs to be installed. Gauges in car all work.
Car runs and drives great. I drive it probable once a week or so. Very fun car to drive with the 4 speed/cam/exhaust etc.
