Description for Pontiac Firebird 1968

1968 Pontiac Firebird Convertible 5.7L 350
This is a Barn Find/Shed find
Clean title in hand
Previous owner had a lot of money dumped into the car before passing away.
Engine was rebuilt by Jasper about 5 years ago and installed back into the car. Car sat after that. Still had the break in oil when we picked it up. We have some very weathered paper work from Jasper.
Automatic transmission may have been rebuilt ad well but have no documents to prove it.
Front has stock suspension but, ball joints look to have been done. Control arms may be new as well. Rear end looks stock and all in tact. Drum brakes all around.
The cconvertible top was redone 5 years ago but, will need to be replaced as you can see in the pictures. We have the trim for the top along with new weather strips, gaskets, and new windshield header moulding. We installed new hydraulic shocks, pump, and tubing to make sure wiring worked properly which it does.
For the Front end, the wiring is intact and comes with a brand new head light wiring kit. New alternator and new edelbrock 600 cfm cand was installed. As the engine sat for about 5 years, we pulled the distributor, carb, water pump, intake and valve cover, cleaned all the surfaces and installed new gaskets to be safe. Engine most likely has about 30 minutes on it since rebuild. It starts right up and idles perfectly. Exhaust does need to be redone as it's broken off right before the muffler.
The headlights do work. Have not tested the taillights yet. Most if not all the electrical is there and functional
Front coilsprings need to be reset properly on the control arms ( hence the height difference)
As For parts car comes with many used and new parts. Most of the old trim and interior panels are included. The original window glass, regulatit's and door mechanisms are in tact and functional. Brand new inner fenders are included. Almost all the new weather stripping and felt are included.
This is a very good start For a rebuild with all the hard parts done for you. This will save you a lot of money. This is a lot driving car that can easily be a drive as you build once a few small things as rear brakes, door and window mechanisms are put back. Car looks to be in primer so is not far off from paint
This was an original Veredo Green with deluxe black interior. A nice sought out mix.
Wheels llol great and tires hold air but, there is dry rotting.
Please take your time looking at all the pictures in detail and read The description. That being said, if you have a question, please do not hesitate to ask. I respond fast.
Local buyers are welcome to come see the car in person. I will help buyers that are looking to have the car shipped but you must find your own company and coordinate prior to purchase.
Thank you !
