For 1976, the Pontiac Firebird was available as four models including the base, Esprit, Formula and Trans Am. The base engine was a 250 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine while the Trans Am could be fitted with a 455 cubic-inch V8.
All Firebirds had body-coloured urethane bumpers and new options this year included a canopy top, fuel economy indicator, and a new appearance package for the Formula model.
The Firebirds were available in only five colours including Firethorn Red, Sterling Silver, Carousel Red, Goldenrod Yellow and Cameo White.
The Trans Am model had an air dam, rear decklid spoiler, shaker hood, Rally II wheels with trim rings, 400 cubic-inch four-barrel V8, GR70 x 15 tires, and rally gauges.
TH350 transmission has recently been completely rebuilt by Stevens Engineering of Ware in Hertfordshire, leaving this very original and unmolested example driving beautifully. This car has been carefully stored since the 80’s and retains its original flare in top all-around condition minus a rip in the driver’s seat.
