Debuting an updated lineup at the 1970 Chicago Auto Show, the Pontiac Firebird solidified its place in the muscle car market. While the iconic Trans Am lagged with just over 3,200 sales, the Firebird soared, exceeding 48,000 units.

The Esprit emerged as the sales leader with nearly 19,000 produced, followed closely by the base Firebird with similar numbers. The Formula, the performance-oriented option, rounded out the pack at nearly 8,000, with a surprising twist: over 70% opted for the mighty L78 400 cubic inch engine.

Automatic transmissions dominated Formula sales, chosen by nearly half of buyers. However, the rarest and most coveted variant was the L74 Ram Air III-equipped Formula, with a mere 696 rolling off the assembly line, making them holy grails for collectors today.

A recent eBay listing by Kharmangeddit offered a 1970 Formula 400, supposedly in pristine, original condition. Despite claims of matching numbers and factory performance, a cautious approach is warranted due to the limited details provided. Thankfully, PHS documentation is included to aid verification.

Remarkably unaltered, it boasts its original paint job (with a few imperfections that add to its character) – a true testament to its well-preserved state. Sure, the undercarriage isn’t showroom-new, but its solidity and rust-free floors are major positives for a classic car.

With some restoration magic, this Firebird could be transformed into a head-turning masterpiece. The owner’s price tag of $42,000 reflects not only the car’s condition but also its potential for future appreciation.

This steal has already caught fire online, with over 100 watchers and potential offers lurking. Don’t miss your chance to own a legend! The auction concludes in 19 days, so channel your inner Knight Rider and convince your better half that this Firebird is the missing piece to your automotive dreams.
