History- Sold new at Jerry Schultz Pontiac in Lake Geneva WI. Traded in to Antioch Dodge (10 miles from here) in 1976. 2nd owner bought the car and has owned until he passed in 2015 at which time I personally appraised it for the estate. It was complete and original. A Pontiac enthusiast bought the car and gave it the proper restoration that this rare and desirable car deserved. A total of only 689 Ram air Firebirds were made in 1970, of those 189 were equipped with the M21 4-speed.

EXTERIOR: Beautifully restored and refinished back to its original Atoll blue color. It is enhanced with a clear coat finish that's been polished to look wet. The body is straight and all the panels fit square and flush. Rubber bumper is mint. All of the brightwork is in excellent condition.

Grills are restored. All new glass. The window seals have been replaced, weather strips are new. The door jambs are painted glossy, the latches and hardware is polished, sill plates are new. Really rare and unique feature on this car are the 15 inch Rally ll wheels. Pontiac did not make a 15 inch rally except for the Trans Am. This car was special ordered with these wheels. All 4 have the letters JW next to the valve stem, which is correct. These are as rare as hen's teeth. The wheels are completely restored right down to the proper lug nuts and center caps. The correct reproduction Goodyear Polyglas GT tires installed. The Formula 400 featured 2 hood snorkels, sport mirrors and enduro nose. This car also has the optional hidden wipers. It is beautiful.

INTERIOR: It is completely restored inside. All new upholstery, carpeting, headliner door panels, window cranks, mirror etc. Any plastic trim is in mint condition. Has the original dash pad, no cracks, slightly warped. The glove box has the owner's manual and touch up paint. This car was ordered with the optional tachometer and gauge package, also the Formula steering wheel. This one has been restored wrapped in glove soft leather. The Hurst 4-speed is correct including new boot, bezel and knob. Has original AM radio, interior lights work.
