1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero
So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through
a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb
installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start
The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to
make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then
popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of
the pedal, off it went!
The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more
videos on it soon, so stay tuned.
If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add
it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.
1969 Pontiac Firebird 400
This is my 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 project-Plans for this car are drum to
disc brakes upgrades first! You can hear the old drums squeeking as I
brake! suspension, interior, and house of kolor candy apple red paint with
black rally stripes! Audio system and interior are already being worked on.
Also im planning to lower it 2 inches all around. Im debating on wether to
paint the wheels black or match them kandy apple red? or try to combine
both black and candy red for the rims? What do you think?
Engine is a freshly rebuilt 400 block, .060 bored, hooker headers, holley
carb, holley electric fuel pump, and dual flowmasters. For now not focusing
on the engine but I've been thinking about rebuilding a faster 400 and upgrading the automatic
transmission to a manual shift 5 speed. Not trying to build a car show
quality or a superfast car, mostly a cruiser and once in a while fun at the

The Car of the Future in 1956 - Firebird II
GM wondered what the car of the future would be like. But they asked the
Design Staff and Engineers to let their imaginations go wild and being
enamored with the jet age they developed a series of turbine powered, jet
like cars they called the Firebirds.
The body was lightweight and strong titanium and its streamlined design was
unlike anything else. This aviation inspired look, complete with big tail
fins, was how GM's head designer, Harley Earl, envisioned the future and
his Dream Cars celebrated that vision.
