Attached you should find pics of my 67 Firebird convertible. It is my first car back in 87 or so. It has a 400 Pontiac engine, turbo 350 tranny and a Pontiac 10 bolt (3.55s). Engine has a manifold, headers and a too-small cam.
A business trip to South-West Asia bought the 12in Brea disks all around.
Plans are for a TKO-500 or 600. A 69 T/A hood, some body mods and a significant bit of body repair, and , and
Any comments?

Let me be the first to say sweet ride. You don't see very many nice 67-69 Firebirds hardtops, let alone convertibles. Keep us posted with your progress.

yes you are right - that WAS a Hayabusa in my garage, but it went for sale to a guy from New Jersey. It was pretty impressive. The highest performance vehicle I'll ever have.

-to the rest, thanks for the kind words, I'll keep posting as I fix her up.

Another Bird!

It's great to see another bird in here! Any more pictures?

Here are a few more shots, I just realized I don't have too many, guess I thought I'd be the only one who looks at 'em...

will work on my internet skills!

really, say that is a great '68! What engine / tranny are you running? It looks a bit better than mine- not so much rot.

You should get rid of that peice of crap! I'll haul it away for you and even give you some dough! LOL Nice bird! As I told another guy in here, if I ever get rid of my vette, I'll get another bird. What an agressive looking car! I'm sure you gets lots of attention in it.

Sharp car. BTW, here is a 67 ragtop Firebird with the T/A hood.


I have a TKO-600 in my bird, love it on the street. It makes for some interesting trips down the track too. Much better gears for the torque of a 455 vs the ealier TKO (which I had). You can see some pictures of it on my cheapy homepage.

Hello! Saw your link on early Pontiac, here are a 68 Firebird i have been helpt building here in Norway. The wheels are 19" "euro style". What do you think?

Kenneth, That's a damn nice car, too!

Hey convertible guys! Both of you have beautiful cars. I never thought of a T/A hood. What did you guys do about subframe connectors?

11-05-2004, 06:27 PM
I should have said all these cars are beautiful. Do all of you guys have full picture set ups in the "cars" section?
