Hell me put a price on this Pontiac

Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m new to this forum and I was just wondering how much a Pontiac I found actually costs. For some details the the car is a 1977 Pontiac firebird formula with original W72 package. It runs and drives and has no cancerous rust. It is a one of 750 and is a 4 speed automatic. The owner provided papers proving the car and is asking $14,000. What do you guys think I should ask for? , I’m only 18 looking for a great Pontiac muscle car project that’s not too straining so I’m looking for extra guidance for buying one. Thanks!













The car has 3,000 miles on it as well.

Agree with Justa....The engine sure does look clean under the Rocker Cover....Too Clean and Dry...🚩🚩🚩 For an engine that has been recently started and run....

No photo of the VIN...???

Yup, I'm with Justa & Two Lane on this one. Your looking at a lot of time and money but it would make a good project if you could get it for the right price.

I'm also onboard with Two Lane, JUSTA, and Wrongway. This car is not in good enough overall shape for the $14-15k the owner is asking for.  The owner is basing his price on the fact that it is an iconic '77 Formula and 4-speed car.

We don't even know if the engine is the original numbers matching motor that came with the car from the factory. You can find out by looking at the front of the engine, on the block, just below the passenger side head. The last 6 digits of the vehicle VIN should be stamped on the engine. If they don't match, then the engine has been replaced at some point in time, making it less valuable.

You may well spend another $15k restoring this car. Save your money and stay within the $5-8k range folks here have suggested.
