The redesigning of Ford’s mid-size cars in 1970 did not get the response they were hoping. Experts claim that maybe they spent more time in NASCAR promoting the 69 model thus neglecting the newer model. However, the ’70 and ’71 models clearly had better interior and power; packing an impressive 250-hp, 351-cubic-inch (5.8 Litre) V-8 Engine.

Featuring a colonnade style body, these mid-size cars were the last traditional mid-size GTO. Most of the builds packed a 230-hp, 400-cubic inch 6.6L V-8 with an optional 7.5L. However the squishy-nosed Grand Am became more popular, offering a sedan and coupe variation at a fair price.

Late 70’s saw the influx of Trans Am prices though the less flashy Formula lagged behind. However, in 1978, the Formula introduced a 220-hp true Pontiac 400 6.6L V-8 model. Additionally, the WS6 handling package with four-wheel disc brakes and the stunning snowflake along wheels set it apart as a flashy yet affordable option.
