** INTERIOR PHOTOS TO COME ** For many second-generation Firebird fans, the sleek ’77 and ’78 body style is a favorite with its sinister split grille and headlight treatment along with its color-keyed and well-integrated bumpers. In comparison, its Camaro cousin had (until ’78) blocky aluminum bumpers that jutted out from the car’s body. Of course, the Trans Am SE (aka the “Smokey and the Bandit” version) was hugely popular. But have you ever seen a standard Firebird (meaning not a Formula or Trans Am) of this era sporting a V8 with a 4-speed stick? Up until now we haven’t, despite all our dealings here and all the car shows we’ve attended. We now have one of these rare ‘birds and it’s a pretty special car. Looking fantastic in its original “Mayan Red” paint, this beautiful ‘bird hails from California. As such, the body panels, subframe, floors and trunk are original and rock solid. The factory Rally II wheels fitted with trim rings and white-lettered radials complete the Firebird’s head-turning looks. The crisp and clean white interior is also amazing. It may have been restored, but is so correct that it is hard to tell. The headliner, carpet, dash and door panels are likewise in fine condition and indicative of the excellent care this California car has seen. The odometer shows 15,365 miles, though it may actually be 115,365 given it shows just five whole digits. Either way, the car’s overall condition speaks for itself. A 305 V8 sits under the long hood, and the engine compartment looks clean and dry. Although it may not be a fire-breather like an old 455, the 305 moves the Firebird out with ample gusto, especially since it runs through a four-speed manual rather than a three-speed automatic. With three pedals and that stick shift, this Firebird is a hoot to drive. A Magnaflow performance exhaust with chrome tips adds a rocking soundtrack, while power steering and brakes (front discs) add to the driving enjoyment.
