02-16-2010 11:58 PM New Project- 1967 Firebird part 1
I bought this car one year ago, but have only recently started ot tear it down for the proper rebuild it needs.

The car is a '67 Firebird 326 H/O but was disguised as a 400 model even down to the correct year 400 engine (aren't they all...) Even I was fooled by the dual factory traction bars and what appeared to be the 400 emblem holes under the incorrect spoiler that came on the car. Wish I knew more about body tag decoding when I bought it.

It is, however, (for those who care) a 326 H/O car, original verdoro green, dlx interior, rally gauges, fold down rear seat, rear mount antenna, etc...

When I'm done with this car, it'll be ls powered with a 6 speed, updated suspension, brakes, etc. My goal is to build a high performance driver with occasional open track time.

I didn't start this project until recently as I needed the space and funding form selling my Belvedere. I was driving the car around locally..... Until now

I sold this car in December. It went to Lake Jackson, Texas. Maybe you'll see it cruising around there.

Now I have $$ and space to start my next project, a '67 Firebird. I'll be working on adding pics as I create that project/ project journal.

I have yellow plates now. They look at home on this car. They are 1957 correct with the appropriate lettering. I also carpeted the trunk...

05-30-2008 04:23 PM Belvedere meets Barris
Earlier this week some of the other Hot Wheels designers and I went over to George Barris shop in North Hollywood for a tour of the shop. Awesome time, tons of great stories, great people over there and, of course awesome cars to check out. Here's a pic of him admiring my car. It felt good to have the King check out my ride.

05-30-2008 04:07 PM rear sway bar. finally!
after a year of driving this thing I finally got around to having a rear sway bar installed. long overdue. very happy with the results. I had my buddy Will over at Sakowski motors help out with this one. He and his crew set it up for me, as I'm not set up to weld. I also had them make the trunk pan while it was there.
