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
1969 Firebird Project "Routy" Introduction V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Our latest project car - a 1969
Pontiac Firebird named "Routy" - has finally entered the building. It has
been patiently waiting in storage in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, and
owner Steve Prouty finally got a break in the weather and hauled it to the
V8TV shop. The car is in pretty good shape, we don't anticipate any major
panel replacement or real surprises, but we'll see when we get into the
project. Here's the intro video with the car, and the other "goodies"
Steve brought down from America's Dairyland.
