I’ve done all of the bodywork, paint, interior, suspension and engine work myself. Working on it is as much fun as driving it to me.
Make it Faster!
what kind of suspension are you running under the firebird?
It’s stock except for Hotchkis springs, KYB gas shocks and polyurethane bushings. I’m hoping to make some handling improvements as my budget allows.
i have all kinds of suspension upgrades for those check out our web site when you get time www.heidts.com
Car looks awesome!I had a 69’ back in the day; unfortunately I can’t find any pictures of it.
I’m diggin’ the Firebird!!
I so love this car! 400? weren’t those few and far between?
Shes a keeper. Your right she was the same color as mine. Some day I’ll have to repaint the old girl (paint is original). I’ve had mine for 20 years. I traded a 65 Mustang for it. That was the best deal I ever made.
Nice, Real Nice.
Like your Bird ,looks great.
Love the car Dave. I saw Blackbird on Performance Years when I was looking for ideas for my 68. It stood out. You forced me to join Hub garage. Like I didn’t spend enough time on car sites.
You’re kidding when you say you have less than $12,000 in this car, right? It’s gorgeous!
It’s true, and I have the receipts to prove it. I’ve bought a lot of items at swap meets and learned how to do all of the resto work on it. That’s how I’ve kept costs under control. Also, I decided from the beginning that I wouldn’t put any more money into the car than what I could buy a restored Firebird for. That way if I ever sell her, I most likely won’t lose any money.
U have one sharp Firebird!!
Great job. Looks really nice.
