By the early 1970s, the gas crunch and new federal regulations effectively neutered many American muscle cars; however, Pontiacs Firebird was one of only a handful of performance cars left standing by 1974. By 1974, the Firebird, like all American cars, were required to sport federally compliant 5-mph bumpers, replacing the invisible, body colored Endura bumpers of years past. Nonetheless, the Firebird still looked virile, especially in stealthy GT-style Formula guise. A true drivers car, the Formula sported a pair of bold hood scoops up front, a fiberglass hood, and few external adornments for a particularly clean look in contrast to the racy Trans Am variant. The V-8 engine choices and available transmissions continued to provide strong, albeit somewhat milder, performance than before. Other standard Formula equipment included hubcaps (Honeycomb and Rally II wheels optional), a special heavy-duty suspension, black-textured grille finish, dual exhaust system, a custom cushion steering wheel, and F70-14 tires.
This 1974 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 is an attractive and well-equipped example with a 44,155 miles believed correct at the time of writing. Finished in Admiralty Blue paint over a light blue bucket-seat interior, this Formula benefits from a restoration to OEM specifications, with power delivered by the matching numbers Pontiac 400 CI V-8 engine with ram air, mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Desirable features and options include air conditioning, an AM/FM radio, and attractive Honeycomb wheels, plus a console-mounted shift lever. Documents include the owners manual, sales brochures, emissions and radio manuals, and a Build Sheet. A spare wheel/tire, roadside jack and lug wrench are also included. While horsepower was down in 74, Pontiacs Firebird Formula 400 held the line with excellent performance, handling, and GT-themed sophistication.
