1988 Pontiac Firebird Formula Description

I am selling my 1988 Pontiac Firebird Formula that I purchased from the original owner January of this year, the car had just over 49k miles when I bought it and now has 53,500. The original owner bought the car new in 1988 at the age of 44(his age is on the title pictured). The car has brand new tires, hood struts, hatch struts, catalytic converter(stock), new headlight motor bushings, new trunk motor bushings, battery, radiator, fuel pump and a fresh tune-up. I drove it to Florida in May, she drives great and I would drive it cross country. I also replaced the rear spoiler(dry rotted) with a GM factory fiberglass spoiler from a 1992 Formula(not cheap). The A/C is not working but everything is in place and may only need a recharge. The hoses are all original date coded 1988. Shocks appear to be original as well as all of the bushings and brakes and suspension parts. The car was 100% stock when I bought it. I replaced the seats(front and rear) from a 1992 Formula which I will include pictures of shortly. The seats are black and the sportier style and in immaculate condition, they do stand out against the grey interior but with a black carpet or floor mats it should match up well. Needs a headliner and the dash has a few cracks. All of the door, t-top, weather stripping is original and some will need replacing. The ONLY rust on the car is on the battery tray. The floors, quarters, fenders, trunk pan etc etc all rust free. The car needs paint but no rust repair, just a great solid foundation to build up but can be driven around reliably as you restore it. The exhaust is original with the exception of the catalytic converter, I sectioned in a new pipe behind the cat which was rusted. I would replace the exhaust from the cat back at some point. I would also do the rotors and pads at some point. The speakers are original and the radio(the power button on the radio is quirky and you have to play with it to power up the radio). I removed the door moldings and will be updating the pictures when I have a chance to show its current condition..I just wanted to get the ball rolling. I was slowly fixing the car up but am starting a new business and need the money. These cars are the next in line to shoot up in value and if I didn't need the money I would hold on to her. I remember when you could buy late 70's Trans Am's for 3-4000$...look at them now! All and all its a solid start to a build up. The 305 TBI wont win you any races but its a very comfortable driving car that is pretty good on gas. She drives tight and handles well, car was never abused and always adult driven. Any question fire away and please do not waste my time. A 200$ non-refundable deposit is due at auction end via paypal. I can deliver the car for an agreed upon fee if needed. Thanks and good luck!I added pictures of the new seats and spoiler. Spoiler is a GM fiberglass original. They sell repo spoilers for 500.00 plus 150.00 truck freight shipping that don't fit that good.
