1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Inacoma)
Last updated Aug 1, 2010
Whitebird is a new home now. She will undergo a full frame off rotisserie restore. As it should be!
Where to begin...I don't know the complete history of White Bird, I just know she came from California pretty much in the conidtion she's in right now. A basket case :( I got her a couple years ago from a guy who was moving out of state and was unable to take her along. She has been in storage ever since. I want to restore White Bird, but alas, I am unable to at this time. White Bird is an original Ram Air III, 4 speed car with, of course, the 12 bolt 3.55 rear axle and matching numbers block! Body is in fair shape but deteriorating as time goes by. We do have the PHS documentation. So, here is a list of what we have. The block (matching numbers) but none of the internals (crank, rods, slugs, rings, oil pump), however the block has been machined and is ready to be put together. Also have the original heads, also machined and ready to go. Aslo have the original M20 Muncie 4 speed transmission, shifter and bell housing. The original air cleaner and scoop are there but again the guts of the scoop (solenoid, flap, and so on) are gone. Also have an intake (not original I think) and carb. The carb is a proper Q-jet with the correct number, 7040263 for the 1970 R/A III motor. Also have the power steering pump. The interior is there but out of the car. Seats are in good condition, could be cleaned up nicely and installed. The console is in very good condition, and there is no carpet. I think the headliner is also missing. The original wheels are alas somewhere in the past, as in not on the car and I do not have them nor know where they are or where they went. I do have the drive shaft, and aside from some engine parts, (crank, rods, pistons rings, cam, lifters, pushrods, timing chain, oil pump, lifter valley cover, timing cover, exhaust manifolds) she could be restored or just put together and driven. Oh yeah, there is no radiator or water pump :( The odo reads 37037.6 but I have no idea how many times it's been rolled over. Hey, maybe it is only 37k because the doors open and close so good. There is absolutely NO sag in either door! I have a CLEAN title to this car, no salvage crap title.
