1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20 years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap, Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the immediate future.

Pontiac fans, have we got a treat for you! This properly restored 1968 Firebird features a fresh V8, 700R4 transmission, posi-traction rear end and a killer paint job. Add in a stack of documents that include restoration photos, and receipts, and you end up with a slam dunk of a drop-top cruiser that's ready for the show field or the open road.
The quality work throughout the body is apparent. Thousands of dollars were spent on the 2006 restoration. The floors and trunk are spotless. This was never a rusty car. Panel gaps are precise and the dark blue pearl paint is better than they were applying to new cars in 1967. It has all been buffed to an eye-popping shine. All of the chrome and stainless trim is equally nice.
Mechanically, this car is the real deal. The 8 cylinder engine is beautifully painted, and has seen only 1,250 miles since the restoration. The engine bay is exceptionally well detailed throughout. Ceramic coated headers, MSD ignition, a high torque starter, aluminum radiator, single plane polished aluminum intake, oversized water pump pulley and stainless fuel and cooler lines have all been included in the restoration.
Underneath, it's just as nice. The 700 R4 automatic transmission feeds a 3:73 posi-traction, powder coated, rear end. New 2.5" Exhaust, power front disc brakes and a park brake, cross dilled rotors, QA1 adjustable shocks and lowering spindles are also present. The restorer went through and had the control arms, front wheel wells and the frame all powder coated as well. This is a car that drives exactly the way a new car would have in 1968. The rear wheels are Budnik 20" wearing 275/35/ZR20 tires, and the fronts are Budnik 18" with 235/40/ZR18 tires. 248-974-9513
The black leather interior is very well done. The front bucket seats and the back bench seat are both in near perfect condition. The center console with wood grain detail is beautiful as well. It is also equipped with an AM/FM radio, tilt wheel and seatbelts. Door panels, carpets, and the white vinyl convertible top, are all in excellent condition.
Calling this a nice car just doesn't do it justice. This is a gorgeous car with an impeccable pedigree and a huge helping of performance thrown in just for fun. This is an investment-grade automobile, and at this price, you couldn't duplicate the restoration on this car. It's in a league of its own among early Firebirds. Call today, because like its GTO cousin, this one won't stay long! 248-974-9513
CTS-V Powered '68 Camaro Drop Top - BIG MUSCLE
Finding the right balance between a well tuned street car and a flat-out performance car is no easy task. However that didn't stop Southern California resident Bob Hall from building what may just be one of the best vehicles we've ever driven. He started with an ultra clean 1968 Camaro SS convertible, fitted it with a supercharged LSA mill from a 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, reworked the entire drivetrain and suspension, and in the end, created a car that's 44 years old but feels like it rolled out of the factory yesterday.
