Description
Lot #314 - A true street-legal "wolf in sheep's clothing" with awesome performance and track ready. Repainted in its original white exterior with a lower black stripe and tri-color blue accent striping, the Firebird retains the original black interior with both seats modified and floor eye-bolts installed to accept Simpson 5-point safety harnesses. Safety is further heightened with a partial roll cage (full hoop) with kickers to the rear shock towers and horizontal bracing with eye-bolt connections for Simpson shoulder harnesses, plus an on-board fire extinguisher. In addition to a 160mph speedometer conversion including the transmission speedometer gear, the Formula's factory installed working air conditioning has been converted to us modern-specification R134 refrigerant. The Formula's 1987 L98 Corvette engine was rebuilt and blueprinted, with the EFI system upgraded with a Lingenfelter Super Ram intake plenum, runners and components. Internal components include special Keith Black 10:1 pistons, a Lingenfelter hydraulic roller cam, Crane roller rocker arms and Crower hydraulic roller lifters. Supporting features include a crankshaft fluid-damper, Summit cold air package, Prema-Cool dual circuit oil cooler with Summit 16" radiator fan and a Summit 12" fan for the air conditioning condenser. Valley Street Head Service Streetmaster aluminum cylinder heads and Hedman ceramic headers provide excellent breathing. For further efficiency the fans for the combination oil/transmission cooler, radiator and AC compressor are wired separately. Backing up the engine is an Art Carr 700R4 equipped with a lock-up converter. Chassis and suspension mods adding to the Formula's prowess on the racetrack and the street include a set of frame-rail connectors and adjustable Koni shocks front and rear. Other excellent tweaks include a custom aluminum driveshaft, relocation of the battery to the right rear of the trunk and installation of a close-ratio steering box. Stopping is enhanced with a set of Baer brakes including installation of a proportioning valve in the engine compartment. BFGoodrich G-Force T/A radials, measuring 245/45/R17 surround a set of custom 17x8" 5-spoke Camaro style wheels painted to match the exterior color. A full set of 5 original Pontiac Rally II wheels is included with the sale of this very fast dual-purpose car in classic Firebird Formula guise. California Emissions Compliant this vehicle has a current California smog.
