1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start

My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero temperatures. 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 after sitting. 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.

1968 Pontiac Firebird Convertible Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! 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 www.vanguardmotorsales.com





1984 Monte Carlo SS Cold Start
Decided to go out and start up the old Monte Carlo today since it was warm. It hadn't been started in a while since it's a project car, but it runs pretty decent. Would run better with a better carburetor, which will come along at some point along with a lot of other work.
