Car description

1978 Pontiac Firebird Espirit

Time to let this beauty go, She's a jewell, but an historic home renovation investment makes it necessary. Its one or the other. Former wins the hand.

This car is a specialized investment and quite unique, especially under the hood. She cruises around like a nice girl, but can get up and boogie Pronto. Includes:

350 cid small block Chevy (380 hp bump up with the extensive engine modifications) MSD Atomic Fuel Injectio, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intak, Trick Flow Research aluminum cylinder heads, Coated Headers. Super T-10 4 speed manual transmission . Center Force Clutch. Hurst shifter, etc as seen in pics and record. Odometer Miles at present hour: 91,223

Any peeps looking for a solid model for conversion as per a certain popular television show, have a great running start as this only need certain accoutrements added.

The famed arsenal of Birds used on a television show were either wrecked, given as gifts or sold long ago. With the advent of Trans Am seemed to vaccum up a little more glory than its predecessor. That didnt faze Fan collectors, or lovers who continue search and swoop up the not always so easily found Esprit, at least in suitable condition. The slightly more conservative presentation of the Esprit remains a smart and classy sport sedan garnered an extra cool factor when it was used by a television show, along with the signature "J-Turns”. Completed replicas from this model are well documented, and on the rise. And they sell for many thousands more than other wise would.

This car's goal was that eventual destination. Added bonus is muscle under this hood considerably pumping up the Alpha HP factor. Got J-Turn fever? She will bang A gong and get it on!

Have all paperwork and meticulous upkeep/ upgrade records. Previous owner as well as the previous original owner kept painfully detailed descriptions(as have we) of any work, where done, reciepts, etc of care and meticulously logged upkeep, upgrades, modifications, body, interior and engine builds to a "T" in detail through the years. This car has been loved. Although she's got racing power under the hood, is adaptable to street performance if desired. Atomic EFI is somewhat self learning, and/or cam shaft manipulation or removal. May be other tactics I dont know about. Originally came from Sterling, IL . As per its extensive ownership labor and specialized parts purchase records, logging notes and provided pics, there's a lot of invested time, labor and money tucked under the hood and some suspension adaptations, strengthening, etc.

Body is in pretty exceptional shape. Interior shots included in pics. Seats could have been re-upholstered at some point, but appear original coloring. Body color is Caramel Ochre and was repainted once to its current original color by previous owner. Full

Removable plate Kenwood Stereo and Bose speakers(total 4) included.
