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.
1979 Pontiac Sunbird coupe
Nice little coupe! Based on the Vega/Astre underpinnings, this model
brought new life to the compact. The interior is particularly nice on the
Sunbird and its Chevy Monza twin. Fortunately for Pontiac, the Iron Duke 4
cylinder was the regular base engine for the car, avoiding the problems of
the initial (75 and 76 Sunbirds) that still offered the Vega aluminum 4.
This one has A/C and automatic.
