Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
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

assembly line for delivery to a new car dealership. Not many of these 23+

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!
