1978 Pontiac Firebird


My husband and I bought this car about 7 years ago. I drove it for a short time before we started to restore it. While we were disassembling my husband got sick and all work stopped it remained in the garage for 5 years. After he passed I decided too liquid down to 1 classic car. I had help from a friend to get back to a resalable condition. I will give an explicit detailed description of the work that has been done to date. -If you have any other questions I can be contacted at 585-346-7323 or 585-281-9986.

Will need tires to be road worth otherwise it runs, drives, stops very well. I have driven it around the block a few times since it was finished.

The power windows do not work however we bought a complete extra power window setup out of another firebird with extra harness, switches and motors. This car is a driver that is presentable “as is”. Has much potential to be a beautiful car with a super color combo. I have the original build sheet to document all the options listed in this ad.
