1987 Firebird Formula 350 in showroom condition
In 1987 there were a total of 88,613 Firebirds built by Pontiac. Of those, 13,164 were Formulas, so less than 15% of total production. Only a very small percentage of Formulas had the 5.7 liter L98 350 engine and 700R4 automatic transmission, which is the same power drive train as the 1987 Corvette. Factory rated at 230 horsepower and 330 ft/lbs of torque. This car has brought back to look just like it did when it rolled off the assembly line for delivery to a new car dealership. Not many of these 23+ year old cars are still on the road, and this is the first year of the 3rd generation Formula with the top engine option, so it's pretty unique. Still verifying the official production numbers Firebird 350 models from the Pontiac Historical Society. I ordered the original invoice and window sticker, which shows a "retail" price of $16,137.00. Thanks for looking!

1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 restored to stock condition
A quick video of my 1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350. Of over 88,000 Firebirds produced in '87 only 2,389 Formula 350 models were made. (2.7% of total production models) Most people opted for the Trans-Am model if acquiring the L98 350 engine, so the Formula 350 is the most rare Firebird model from 1987 as most Formulas were optioned with the 305 engine. I have all Pontiac Historical Society (PRS) documentation including copies of the original invoice and window sticker.

1989 Firebird Formula 350 fresh custom L98, GMMG exhaust and more.
This is how my car now sounds 5-10-09. Just installed a new 355 L98 with 10.5:1, AFR Eliminators, Lloyd Elliot cam (223 230 .535 .535 109LSA) and a TPIS Miniram. Just installed a new McLeod clutch, "Dyno Don" headers and y pipe, and a fresh rebuild on my 9 bolt rear including new bearings, posi cones, and 4.11 gears. This car is not tuned, hence the crap out of the Exhaust. I was not able to get video of the Dyno runs but the numbers were 370rwhp @ 6200rpm and 350rwtq at 4800 rpm. Not too bad for now :-D
