OK, OK... I didn't intend this to be a three parter. The car is a 69 Firebird. 350 cu with TH 350 transmission. The motor is all original but the original transmission was a TH400. The car came equiped with power steering power disc brakes and A/C. I added the Camaro spoiler, the rear mounted antenna and the 15" rally II wheels. All the rust was cut out and replaced with new metal. All the weather stripping is new along with the seat covers, carpet, headliner, sunvisors, door panels. The motor was removed and completely detailed. I did all the work myself except for the instalation of the seat covers.

What ya think?

MMMM..... nice!

When I was 16, I almost bought a 69 Firebird convertible for $1,000.
Glad I didn't cuz it needed everything replaced, but those are one of my favorites.

Nice ride

Very nice! I've always liked the older muscle cars. F-bodies the best.

My very favorite Muscle Car. My wife (who is not really into Fieros) even said "WOW!" Nice.

That's beautiful, and that blue looks great. It's always great to see an early F-body that hasn't been "mulletized" (bright yellow traction bars, giant Mickey Thompson drag tires, window full of racing stickers, flame paint and/or primer, etc.).

The 1st-gen (67-69) and 2nd-gen, pre-5mph bumper (70-73) F-bodies were the most beautiful muscle cars ever made, IMHO.

ZZZZZZIP! Got my asbestos flame suit on.

Mulletized? ROTFL!!!
BTW... that Camaro spoiler looks great on the 'Bird. Didn't recognize that it was not original.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. It took me about 1200 hours to get her back into shape. I'll be selling her off to get to my next project... a 68 RS Camaro.

For those wondering "why", it's because I'll also be selling the RS to fund my two other projects... My 87 GT, and my 69 Firebird 400 convertible!

I want to upgrade the GT with either a 3800 SC or a Northstar so, raising capital is a must-do.

Anyway, thanks for looking,
Roy L.

Great car! A friend of mine bought a 68 Firebird 400 about 4 years ago for $2500 in rough shape. It ran though. Anyways his dad has restored about 80 cars his whole life so 3 years after he bought it, it was restored to perfection! It is black on black with a 4-Sp. I rode in this car and to this day, its been the fastest car I have been in. Unbelievable car. Everywhere we go, there are people all over it. Wish it were mine!

Thanks for the kind words. And yea, It's easy to make Pontiacs go fast. Even easier than SBC (and I've been a SBC fan my whole life). This Firebird isn't very fast, but, a trip to the junk yard for some 4X heads, a $20 swap meet cast iron 4bbl manifold, a $20 rebuild on a tired Quadrajet, a cheap set of headers and WHAM! instant 60+ hp. Change out the docile cam for a RAIV style and youv'e just tacked on another 60. Now, the 400 cube motor I've got for my convertible well, let's just say that it's quick.. ;-).
