Production Total: 5,692
Based on the 1976 concept Blue Bird the Skybird was the first attemt as a special edition other than Trans Am. Adorned in Skybird only Lombard Blue paint with Dark Blue lower accent skybird featured many unique features.

Formula with W50 Appearance Package

1977 Firebird Formula W50 Option

Production Total: 10,674
The Formula W50 Appearance Package continued for 1977 and added two additional colors to the pallette for a total of six. Starlight Black was added to the list of colors and the W50 Option gave it a gold lower two tone with gold striping. A new FORMULA id decal was introduced, possibly at mid year because the 1976 style is still listed as valid for 1977. The new FORMULA logo featured a dark center accent. The W50 Formula Appearance Package carried over the striping around the lower body, blacked out rear taillamp surround and partial bumper, striping on the lower edge of the spoiler, and the smaller 7.22" Spoiler bird with FORMULA decals on the fenders and the standard rear spoiler. The smaller bird was designed to accomodate the wide stripe on the spoiler. Missing on all models for 1978 was the model identication decal on the top of the fascia on the driver's side.
