The associated VIN with this car indicates that it started off its time on the road as a 1972 Pontiac Firebird Formula that came off the line with the 350-cid two-barrel carburetor with dual exhaust V-8 engine. The car is now set up as a tribute to the 1972 Firebird Formula 455 which is quite distinguishable by the two large air intakes on the hood; having the big-block 455-cid V-8 fed by the Ram Air induction scoops backs up the aggressive presence of this popular, yet uncommon Firebird variant.

Additional features include Rally II wheels, dual sport mirrors, rear spoiler, Formula 455 badging, BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, four-speed manual transmission, center console, bucket seats; power steering and brakes. It has been restored to this configuration and spec in a tidy manner befitting the rarely seen Formula 455.
