1978 Pontiac Firebird
1978 Pontiac Firebird Base Model 305 cu V8Original California Palm Springs CarBuilt in the GM Van Nuys Plant has never left California so is rust free. Clear title, just passed smog in August, tags for 1 year.
I bought this car in 2006 and it took me until 2016 to restore it. The car was restored to be driven and it was restored to near original condition including the 8 track player and radio which was restored to factory specs, the non original items are listed below. I have driven the car and enjoyed it, I did not restore it to sit in the garage and look at but I really do not have the time to drive it any more. The car was gone through completely by a professional mechanic and has been worked on by the same person since. It was professionally repainted and all the dings were taken out on the door and hood angles, it was done correctly all panels were removed and painted there was no painting done with panels or trim in place. There are a few nicks from being driven but the paint is still fresh and looks good. The Engine needs detailing again (the joy of living in a desert).
The AC stopped working and Ihave not had time to look at it. The AC was converted to R134 and was properly installed with all new components including a new lightweight high efficiency compressor all the lines were flushed the AC control does not work on the dash and leaks vacuum I have had no luck finding a replacement so it is by passed as is the heater core. AC worked through the dash and floor vents and is either on or off. The price reflects the non working AC.
It is available for inspection if you are local or want to test drive it. Call/Text John seven six zero 861 0 9 8 6 if calling leave a message I will return the call.I can provide more photos through eBay messages if needed. Mileage may vary do to driving in the mean time.
Buyer will have to arrange pick up but I will make myself available for shipping arrangements and pickup.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I HAVE HAD TO RELIST THIS CAR DUE TO NONE PAYING TIME WASTERS. A $500 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IS DUE AT PURCHASE OR ACCEPTANCE OF AN OFFER PAYABLE THROUGH PAYPAL. NON PAYMENT OR BACKING OUT OF THE DEAL WILL RESULT IN FORFEIT OF THE DEPOSIT THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS

_______ Whatâ€™s Wrong_____________
AC has stopped working. AC was converted to R134, system was flushed cleaned and tested for leaks with new compressor, dryer, needle valves, and blower motor, it was either on or off it cannot be adjusted through the vacuum switch on the dash the switch leaked so it is bypassed.
Heater core is bypassed.
All the Gauges were rebuilt and they replaced the clock with a new mechanism it was a poor job all round and the clock doesn't work again. They misaligned the mileage numbers and put the wrong mileage on it.
