Greetings Forum members-
I have truly enjoyed the Solstice Forum and all the members who share their extensive knowledge base on these Kappa vehicles from yesteryear. I am sad to say that after 3+ years of ownership I reluctantly have to give up my "Cool" Coupe I so cherished.
I happened to come across a 1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula 455, fully optioned out, 4 speed manual w/AC, recently (3 yrs) chemically stripped paint restoration, with extremely low miles that I am in the midst of buying. I originally planned to keep both vehicles but my spouse wants me to own only one collector car.
The Cool Silver Coupe has 24,899 miles on it and is stored in winter months. It was originally a Florida car that lived in Pensicola, Florida. It has a 5 speed manual trans w/ the GXP pkg that I have added:
A Venom Brace, Pro Beam, & 3/8" thick Trans Tunnel Backbone Brace to the car's suspension. All DDM components installed in 2014.
I have replaced the front & rear stock rotors with drilled and slotted rotors, disk pads, and painted all 4 brake calipers w/ Black Hi temp caliper. All SP Performance products installed in 2015.
I have replaced the factory Monsoon AM/FM/SAT, 6 CD Chgr Bluetooth radio with a factory Monsoon AM/FM/SAT/Sgl CD/ USB Bluetooth radio to interface with android or ios - based music players/cellphones installed in 2014. The 6 stock Monsoon speakers have been upgraded to Infinity audio speakers (2- 6.5" door; 2 - 3.5" rear pnl & 2-1" dome tweeters in A posts). The single Monsoon 8" subwoofer was replaced with a Pioneer Shallow Mount Dual voice coil TS-SW2002D2 8" 2 ohm subwoofer. Installed in 2016
The battery was replaced in 2016 along with the primary long positive battery cable assy. Installed in 2015.
I have the optional soft top complete with storage bag; the OEM Solstice car cover, mounted frt & rr black splash guards, the original carpeted GXP mats as well as the all weather factory mats, & the Opel GT/Sky Shorty antenna.
I have the complete set of hard copy Shop Service manuals. Oil & filter has been changed annually and the coolant systems has been power flushed in 2015.
I never intended to sell this Coupe but must relinquish it in order to buy the 1973 Firebird Formula 455 4 speed.
I am asking $35,000 for it! Any interested in buying it please contact me.
