1975 Pontiac Firebird Esprit. Factory 4 speed car.
« on: June 15, 2012, 09:20:48 PM »
This 1975 Firebird Esprit is one of 106 sold in Canada with the 4 speed transmission and one of 458 with the 350/4bbl engine. It's also one of 124 with the rear spoiler. This Firebird runs and drives very well. The body is very straight and this is overall a very solid car. It had one repaint several years ago and still shows well. I guess we could call the hood bird a "day two" item as the original owner had it installed when he bought the car. It was also reinstalled after paint. Options include the Formula steering wheel, Rally guages, 8 track player (not currently hooked up), Rally II wheels etc. I have the GM docs as well as the original bill of sale. Lots of original documentation is included with the car including a "Thank You" card from the original salesman! Sold new at Forbes in Waterloo. The dual exhaust (with performance cats) was installed in the early 90's and sounds great. I have a new carpet yet to be installed although the original still is very presentible. New timing chain and gears, master cylinder and booster, distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires. All hoses replaced. Rear differential completely rebuilt last year. Has Alpine deck with Pioneer 6 pack CD changer in trunk. The engine had a mild cam installed in the 1970s and this 350 runs very strong. Car is very straight and solid. Still has original clutch!
Interior is very nice. Engine compartment clean.
Selling only to pay for son's tuition.
Asking $11900 CDN or best offer. Car is located in Ingersoll, Ontario Canada approx 90 minutes from the Michigan border and about 2 hours from the New York Border

Lots of original documentation!

Whats the story on the blue stripe. Was that a factory item? Dealer item? Body shop add? If clearcoat...is it on top of the clear? Thanks

D98 is indeed the stripe. See here http://tran-zam.com/1975Main.htm click on exterior colors. At the very bottom there's info on it.

The stripe is not original. The correct stripe was not available as a repro when the car was repainted years ago. I do have a photo obtained from the original owner of the car in the 1970's which does show the correct stripe. Notice he also had Trans Am flares on the car at the time!  :-X

I forgot to mention the stripe and Bird could be easily removed as it's not under clearcoat.
