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.

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 drag strip.
