HPI 1978 Pontiac Firebird Body
HPI recently announced a new body for 2012, the 1978 Pontiac Firebird 1:10 scale RC body. The new 200mm polycarbonate body will is officially licensed by Pontiac and will feature the full decals for the best details. The Firebird is one of the most iconic muscle cars in the history of american muscle. One of the original muscle cars, the Pontiac Firebird had a long and storied history, with its popularity peaking in the late 70’s after the release of a certain Hollywood movie featuring the original of this car, the hugely successful black ‘Bandit’ version with gold detail, flared air dams and that famous ‘shaker’ hood! This body is a must for any american muscle car fan, check out out!
Our replica of this iconic Hollywood motoring legend takes all the familiar shapes and lines and shrinks them down to 1/10th scale to fit on your RC touring car chassis! A huge vinyl pre-cut decal sheet comes with all of the good stuff: official Pontiac & Special Edition logos and even the gold firebird and pin-striping that made the ‘Bandit’ edition one of the most highly coveted cars of the 70’s!
Like all HPI bodies, the ’78 Firebird comes with a clear protective overspray film, window masks and a large pre-cut decal sheet. The body also has drill locations marked for HPI touring car chassis, making it easy to line up the body mount and antenna holes.
