 Firebird History

A little history, 1990 my wife and I started looking for a convertible. We would drive distances to look at cars and I would crawl in the trunk and stick my hand in wheel wells and crawl underneath looking for something solid. We went to a swap meet in Anoka MN at Main motors and you could display cars if you want. That is where we found this car.

The name of the gentlemen we bought it from was Doug Rust (St. Cloud MN) and he had brought back 3 cars from California in 1980 and this was one of them. It had 52,000 miles on it at that point. He had it painted and replaced most of the chrome and a new top. Top has a small hole in it were it got pinched in collapsing arms. The cars was painted 37 years ago and hasn’t changed in any way,  this body is very solid

I went to school for Auto mechanics in the late 70’s so I was going to rebuild engine about 15 years ago. I told this to my wife’s nephew who was going to Alexandria Vo-Tech for diesel mechanic. He said they were looking for a gas engine to rebuild. So they rebuilt it, there is a mild cam in it, hardened rod bolts and I had there machine shop pull all the studs out of heads and put in screw in studs. Also put an Edelbrock Performance intake on it.

About 12years ago took the 2 speed Power Glide out and put a rebuilt turbo 350 in it

About 7 years ago put 3.55 gears in it

I have taken a magnet to car I cannot find a spot that isn’t metal. If my memory serves me I think one of the front fenders had a dent in it and when they repainted in in 1980 they replaced it. From 1980 to 1990 10,000 were put on car from 1900 to present about 4500 miles

Since I have owned it. New radiator, hoses, alternator, rebuilt engine, rebuilt transmission, new gear and bearings in rear end, u-joints and drive shaft balanced, radio, right widow crank mechanism, electronic ignition 

4 years ago I replaced the quadro jet carburetor with a 600 Edelbrock it runs good

I have everything I have ever taken off this car and a spare rear end

Why am I selling car, garage space and  don’t drive it
