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!

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.
