1981 Pontiac Firebird

 

Transmission: Manual

Mileage: 20628 miles

Colour : Blue Mercury Cougar

 

The Pontiac Firebird is an American automobile that was built and produced by Pontiac from the 1967 to 2002 model years. Designed as a pony car to compete with the Ford Mustang.  It was introduced on February 23, 1967, five months after GM’s Chevrolet division’s platform Sharing  Camaro. This also coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, Ford’s upscale, platform-sharing version of the Mustang.

The name “Firebird” was also previously used by GM for the General Motors Firebird in the 1950s and early 1960s  concept cars.

The second-generation debut for the 1970 model year was delayed until February 26, 1970, because of tooling and engineering problems; thus, its popular designation as a 1970½ model, while leftover 1969s were listed in early Pontiac literature without a model-year identification. This generation of Firebirds were available in coupe form only; after the 1969 model year, convertibles were not available until 1989.

 

1981 became the final year for the second generation Pontiac Firebird. The three engine options were unchanged for the model line-up, however, the option for a four-speed Borg Warner Super T-10 was re-introduced for the Formula and Trans Am, but was only available with the Chevrolet sourced LG4 305 5.0L V8. As with all other General Motors vehicles for 1981, all engines came equipped with the “computer command control” system attached to the carburettor.

The hood decal for the 1981 model year was also slightly restyled. All Firebirds also received an embossed silver Firebird decal on the petrol tank cap attached to the rear taillights. On the special edition Trans Ams, this Firebird was gold.

Bring you to our 81 Pontiac Firebird, 1981 signalled the end of the second generation Firebird. As the ends go, you couldn’t have asked for better. With a mighty engine capable of delivering up to 147Kw and an aesthetic that couldn’t help but turn heads, the 1981 Pontiac Firebird was a masterful addition to the Firebrand legacy. The exterior of the Pontiac is dressed in white complemented by the navy blue interior which was redone by the previous owner. Mechanically she drives and presents well. She has been a Johannesburg car for most of her life and has only been a Cape Town car for about 6 years. She has been well-taken care of and well stored in her lifetime, she is still a matching numbers girl. Her 1980’s electronic carb has been replaced with a new Holley and new HEI distributor.

 

This is a great opportunity to get your hands on a good classic that can take you on the Sunday drives to create new memories in style, heads were definitely turned!
