You Can Own This Perfect 1973 Firebird Formula Restomod

You Can Own This Perfect 1973 Firebird Formula Restomod Old school muscle meets modern day power with this Formula! The 1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula is a rare bird. Since the year model is after the introduction of the Trans Am’s in 1969, the world was a bit obsessed with the T/As at the time - this was also before the 1977 body style change that would be one of the most iconic looking cars ever made.

We talk a lot about what is means to have a car that is considered a ‘restomod’. The once buzzy term that was slapped on virtually any classic car that got so much as modern gauges now feels a little worn, but we stand besides the fact that it's still important when used in the right context. As it pertains to this Chevrolet Camaro, the context of being a proper restomod is absolutely relevant. This 1968 Camaro RS is not only restored to the most strenuous detail, but it was given all the modern trappings that have come from powertrain development over the decades.

Looking at this stunner from the outside in, the body has some subtle features that make slightly more modern looking that other first-generation Camaros. The drip rails have been eliminated, the glass up front and back is flush-mounted, sport mirrors take duty on the sides, and the fenders are flared to fit the ten-spoke Mag wheels. Up front is a custom grille that retains the iconic hidden headlights from the RS, and the cowl hood adds to the aggressive appearance of the F-Body. It also sports the full-width spoiler, that had to be custom-built into the design. Covering the bodywork is a flawless coat of a 'modern red' color.

Restomod Camaro Cost $100,000 In Parts Alone

Restomod Camaro Cost $100,000 In Parts Alone This 1968 Chevrolet is insured for $150,000 and sports an LS3 V8 along with a whole host of upgrades. We simply love Camaro’s at Motorious, especially when they look like this one offered by Canyon State Classics. In 2019 you can find one in any state or specification. Whether it’s factory original, a barn find, or something more unique perhaps; like this 1968 LS3 swapped beast. Finished in white with gorgeous US Mags wheels that reveal some hefty Wilwood brakes underneath, this car has had some serious cash thrown at it, and it shows.

The highlight of the cabin is the modern performance seats in black leather with red accent stitching, which is a theme continued on the door panels, steering wheel, and center console. Amenities that many drivers take for granted - but miss when in an older car - like air conditioning, power locks, power windows, power steering, and push button start, are present in this 1968.

Now the part you’ve been waiting for, the powerhouse that drives the rear wheels on ‘go’. Under the hood, you’ll notice a very clean engine bay and a 383 cubic-inch stroker engine with all of the modifications to make it a growling monster - this includes a COMP Cam’s camshaft, ProComp cylinder heads, and all the bolt-ons to support air intake and exhaust flow. To keep the ride smooth, the suspension is completely overhauled, and stopping power comes from a beefy Wilwood four-wheel disc brake package.

Mopar Icon: 1968 Dodge Charger R/T.
Sinister styling meets Mopar muscle. From the Bullitt villains to The Dukes of Hazzard heroes, the second-generation (1968 to 1970) Dodge Charger is one of the most well-known movie/TV cars of all time, and it just so happens to be one of the best Mopars of all time. One reason for this correlation is that the Charger combines a distinct and sporty styling with Mopar's usual under-hood muscle. If you're looking for a car with mean looks and even meaner muscle, then check out the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T up for sale by Hollywood Motors.
