Up for your consideration is this Rare 1978 Firebird Redbird edition, if you do your homework you will find that this was a 1/2 year production starting in Dec 1978 although there are no clear production numbers it is estimated that there were only about2500 or so redbirds producedfor the 78 model yearHistory of car-- this car was sold New in Sulfer springs Tx, where itlived it's life until 2014, I purchased this car from the original owner who in 1986 parked the car in a garage and covered it up due to a bad transmission, the car sat there in hibernation from 1986 until 2014 when I discovered it had come up for sale due to an estate settlement from the children of the original owner
I had the car shipped to my home in MI where I restored it and brought it back to it'sformer glorythis car is Absolutely rust Free! it hasNEVER had any rust andis 100% original metal just as it came from the factory, and has never had any body repairs, patches, or panels replaced
Body-- as I stated all original and rust free, we completely disassembled the car and repainted it the original 2 tone colors of Roman red/Redbird red {lower} in a flawless base/clear paint job and restriped it with the factory correct Gold redbird stripe kit also restoring the factory snowflake wheels in the matching color
interior-- completely redone in the correct color {Carmine red} and material as it came new, the seats were taken down to the frames and restored with new seat foam and material, the carpet was replaced with factory correctcut pile,door panels replaced with factory correct,center console is original and restored as well as all hard plastic in the interior,this car has a full factory gage package including oil pressure, temp, volt, gas, and a tic toc tach, all in working condition except the clock, it has tilt wheel and an aftermarketstereo with cassette {new old stock} it has power windows, and T-Tops {original fisher}
drivetrain-- original numbers matching 350 {Chevrolet engine} and TH350 trans, thetransmission hasbeen completely rebuilt, to factory specs, the engine is original with just over 83k miles, when I got the carsince it had been sitting for so long I took all precautions before starting the engine, and completely drained and replaced all fluidslubed the cylinders, bore scoped the cylinders, replaced the fuel system,primed the oil and made sure that it was ready to fire, once we started it she fired right up and sounded perfect, therefore we didn't feel the need to rebuild the engine, and have put approx. 2500 miles on the car since it was restored and itruns perfect, rear end was checked and fluid replacedBrakes were completely redone with new master cylinder, new rotors new pads in front, new drums, wheel cylinders, shoes in rear,Shocks were replaced with air shocks in rear and gas charged in front,all steering componets checked and greased fuel system replaced with new tank andsending unit,A/C system has Not been redone yet it is all complete but not working and will need to be restored heat -- has been all restored with new heater core, blower motor and hoses and works perfectly
Glass-- all original and in perfect conditionweather strip-- has been all replaced with new factory correct replacementunderside-- all original and rust free as you can see in the picturesI would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere, when it was restored it was done so that we could drive it and enjoy it without any worries, we never intended to sell it but life happens and now it's time for the next owner to enjoy it as we have, I think you will be hard pressed to find another rust free firebird not to mention trying to find a redbird, we specifically searched out a redbird and it took us 10 years of searching just to find one!
