With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

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
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!
