1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Startup & Rev
This is what my 1968 Pontiac Firebird sounded like not long after I bought it, back in October 2011. It was still overly rich at this point and it was in desperate need of tuning but it ran and would rev up to around 4,000RPM without much fuss. The engine's a 400ci (6.6-litre) Pontiac V8 which had been fitted with a Barry Grant Race Demon 750cfm carb, Edelbrock alloy heads, a Comp Cams XR276HR cam, Keith Black pistons, H-Beam rods, an electronic dizzy, Doug's headers and more. Yes, the tail lights are missing - I was repainting and rewiring them at the time. Check out my channel for other videos of this car.
