People who are not common with Pontiac models might be asking what is so special about this particular model. Well, the fact is that Pontiac never sold a convertible version of the 1981 Pontiac Firebird Formula. Actually, no convertible Pontiac Firebird was sold at all for the 1981 year model.
What we have here is a 1981 Pontiac Firebird Formula that has been chopped off into a convertible. The problem with all models that were turned into convertibles by their owners is the rigidity. In this case, the owner of the 1981 Pontiac Firebird Formula says that ``The sub frame has been beefed by tying the front to the rear. It also has door jamb alignment wedges so the car feels solid going down the road``. The car might feel solid, but is it just a feeling?
Anyway, judging from the set of pictures below, the car doesn`t look bad at all. Actually, let me restate that. I have seen a lot of worse looking modified cars in the past couple of years. Sure, it might not be a beauty queen, but for a classic it looks just fine.
There might be just another tiny problem. The price. As this car is listed on eBay for sale and not displayed at some show, this problem comes to mind too. Well, the price for this 1981 Pontiac Firebird Formula modified into convertible is of 8500 U.S. dollars. Sure, you might get a price of 8000 if you negotiate. But seriously, is it worth spending 8 grand on such a car, considering the times we are living in? You be the judge.
