1968 Pontiac Firebird Project

This will be my very first attempt at TOTAL restoration. And when I say restoration, I don't mean it will be back to complete original by the #'s matching specs from the factory. I will definately make some very acceptable modifications for both improvements and personal preferences. Oh, and most definately limited by that ugly word - BUDGET!!

This has been sitting in the back yard of a friend for the last 20-years. Motor and tranny are missing. It appears as though it was originally a 350 Sport Coupe. The glove box had a sticker that referred to it as a Sprint. Someone has installed big block Chevy mounts. I will take it back to big block Pontiac. It is however a four speed car. Power steering seems to be the only extra this buggy has. I will hopefully change that!

   

The floor pans are gone, and so is the trunk pan. Someone carved up the tunnel for some fancy shifter. Only the LH rear quarter has a spot behind the wheel. Other than that, the car is in solid condition. I will replace all of the pans, and both rear quarters to ensure they are new. If you're going to do one, do both. I could not believe the rockers once they were uncovered. They are spotless!!

So... the work begins. My project '68 Firebird and me in my garage just like hundreds before me. I will have some very expert advice along the way from Dave Hall of Restore A Muscle Car.com. I've known Dave most of his life, and he has restored more muscle cars than anyone I know, and specializes in T/A's. So this Early Bird will be right up his alley.

This project could take year or so, depending on time and money just like every other hobbiest. I have found many different vendors that offer every replacement part needed (and more) for this Early Bird. I will be sure to mention them as I go along with the project. Be sure to check back often to see the progress. I hope you will enjoy this resto right along with me.
