I am the 2nd owner of this 1988 Formula
350 factory original car. I purchased the car in June of 2004 from the original
owner. Formula was a special order from Dworak Motors Inc, Kewaunee, WI.Car
always garaged and covered when not in use. Every receipt & all original
sale paperwork (Pontiac Firebird Owners Manual, GM Passenger maintenance
schedule booklets, Delco ETR Music System Manual, build sheet, pre-delivery
inspection sheet, 1988 Firebird/TA showroom brochures, Goodyear tire warranty
info, various other warranties, sales agreement paperwork from original sale and
original Window Sticker). There is more paperwork I did not mention! Pictures
will give you an idea of it all. All the paperwork will leave no doubt of the
Formulas provenance and history!
I had the car shipped
from Wisconsin to NYS via enclosed carrier. I used Pass-Port Transport and have
paperwork that will go with the sale of the car. Items that will
be included with the car are the Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories Cloth Car
Cover and 3 piece Wolf front end bra.
has 35395 original miles at the time of this narrative (9/27/10), and
shows/drives as you would expect the car to with both the low miles and adult
driven care this car has received. Car is always garaged and covered when not in
use. Car stored winter months and does not see rain in the summer. Car has A/C
(still blows cold), power windows & locks, cruise control, intermittent
wipers, original Delco AM/FM Cassette Stereo System. Everything works, even the
rear hatch locking mechanism which are known to fail. Headlights open up and
To date, work that I have done is a
tune-up (new injectors, distributor, spark plugs & wires). New BF
Goodrich G-Force Sport (ZR speed rating) Radials installed 4/27/06 to
replace original Goodyear Eagles. I also replaced the original hood
insulation due to fairly poor show condition of the original insulation.
Otherwise, the car is all original.
Condition:1.) The paint is in excellent condition, with no sun fading,
factory original, Paint looks great, no peeling, cracking or fading. Local
Pontiac Service Technician remarked how great the paint looked for the age of
the car! All door rubber moldings in excellent, near showroom condition due to
minimal sunlight exposure and great care. Rear spoiler molding in excellent
factory original condition, no cracking or paint peeling, a common problem with
many of these car's of this period.
2.) Aluminum wheels/rims are in excellent
factory/showroom original condition, as seen in the picture. These are the
factory original Western cast aluminum offset rims.
The undercarriage shows as near showroom new condition due to the factory
undercoating & fair weather driving. The rear pumpkin still has an original
factory spec sticker on it. All undercarriage components are original to include
the muffler system.
4.) Interior shows as
factory/showroom new with no visible fading and/or wear. There are no dashboard
cracks. The car still retains the original red GM cloth floor
5.) Engine compartment is in excellent condition.
As mentioned above, the hood insulation has just been replaced. There are no
Now, for the Cars
The car drives and handles as factory
new. The GM 350 engine pulls strong as you would expect from an adult driven car
with low miles. The handling is awesome, to the point that most drivers will
never experience its full performance capabilities.
Absolutely no disapointments with this
car!! A picture and credit of the car is featured in May 06 edition
of High Performance Pontiac Magazine. It is the article of previous summers
3rd Annual All Firebird Lawn Show held at Saratoga Springs, NY. The car won a
Sponsors Award for favorite/best 3rd generation Firebird.
