1971 Pontiac Firebird Esprit Espirt, EXCELLENT CONDITION Description:


Please call Greg directly at 513-200-9226 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this exceptionally nice and numbers matching 1971 Pontiac Firebird Esprit in fantastic condition. This Firebird looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The Lucerne Blue (26) over Blue interior (211) is a beautiful color combination that looks great on the car. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured in this ad. This is an excellent opportunity to own a desirable classic Firebird that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on the second generation F-bodies (Firebird and Camaro) is strong right now and on the rise, especially for clean examples like this car. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information to get a true sense of how nice and original this Firebird really is.

Besides the beautiful color combination, the A/C system in the Pontiac has been fully converted to R134a. It is truly a pleasure to be able to cruise around on a hot day with the cold A/C. Small things like that make this car wonderful to enjoy no matter the weather. We have personally put 100+ miles on this car recently. During that time the car was a true pleasure to drive with no issues whatsoever.

As a side note, this Pontiac Firebird is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Firebird, just give us a call.


The Lucerne Blue exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The chrome and other bright work is in great shape with a brilliant finish and no pitting. Both doors open and shut nicely. Often many Firebird's will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not. The 18 inch US Mags wheels are in beautiful condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. These wheels combined with the car being slightly lowered give it a great look and a fantastic stance that stands out from most other Trans Ams/Firebirds. The tires are sized 235/35R18 in the front and 285/35R18 in the rear and have about 90% tread left. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There is some faint bubbles around the rear taillights and some other very tiny blemishes that were too small to show up in the pictures, but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean underneath. We have included specific photos of the rear spring mounts, rockers, lower quarter panels, and the areas most prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.

Window Date Codes

Please note that ALL of the glass on this Pontiac is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of 01E, which is the fifth week of January, 1971. Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Windshield VT The "V" is December and the "T" is 1971 so this window is original made in December of 1971 and correct as it predates the build date of the car.

Driver's Window YT The "Y" is October and the "T" is 1971 so this window is original made in October of 1971 and correct as it predates the build date of the car.

Passenger Window VT The "V" is December and the "T" is 1971 so this window is original made in December of 1971 and correct as it predates the build date of the car.

Rear Window CT The "C" is November and the "T" is 1971 so this window is original made in November of 1971 and correct as it predates the build date of the car.


The Blue interior in this Esprit is in amazing condition. The gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are crystal clear. The carpet is also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The headliner is in great condition with no sagging, warping, or tears. The woodgrain looks nice with no peeling or delamination. The seats are in great shape and look just as nice in person as they do in the photos with no split seams, rips, or excessive wear. The seat is not overly worn in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out and there is just a small amount of wear there. The original dash is in good condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The door panels are in excellent shape overall and the door pulls are solid and intact. This Firebird has never been smoked in; there are no burn marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Firebird interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.


This Pontiac seems to be in good mechanical condition. As stated above we have driven this car over 100 miles with absolutely no problems. The original 350-2 starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. The car drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video in this ad one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well through the power band. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. The car runs cools and does not overheat. This Trans Am has a wonderful exhaust note that doesn't get old. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.

The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, radio, indicators, dash lights, and wipers; even the key buzzer still works. All of the gauges work. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. The a/c also works as mentioned above and blows cold. One can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The complete operation of the headlights, brights, and turn signals can be viewed in the video in this ad. The car has a true dual exhaust with no catalytic converter and a healthy exhaust note as one can hear in the video. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1971 Firebird is in magnificent driver condition. The low miles, the beautiful original color combination, and the excellent overall condition make this car especially important and hard to duplicate. It is very hard to find a Firebird or Camaro from this era that is still in great original condition with low mileage as most were used and abused. This Trans Am always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The prices of second generation GM "F-Body" cars have increased considerably over the past several years, especially for low mileage and clean examples like this car. They are secure and wise investments for a collector. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
