You could order a "regular " firebird with a V-8. The difference is in the components......if the paint is original, ALL Formulas had Formula decals on the front bumper, rear bumper, and on both doors. The Formula had a beefed up suspension with very large diameter sway bars front and rear, had the 16-inch aluminum wheels with 245/55/ZR16 performance tires, and dual exhaust tips. Most Fomulas came with TPI (tuned port injection), and regular Firebirds only had TBI as the injection method. The Formulas also came with a big hood bulge that the regular Firebird did not have. The Formula was basically a Transam in Firebird clothes. It was actually faster stock than a Transam due to the absence of added weight (no ground effects on the Formula). If you have a picture of the car, send it to me via email and I will tell you what it is!
