1968 Pontiac Firebird (REDBIRD)

Photo of a 1968 Pontiac Firebird (REDBIRD)


This car was restored by me and my family-wife,daughter,son,father and a very good neighbor who is just like family to us, who helped out with the precision welding of our new tail light panel and new lower quarters.

When we originally got this car it was a mess -hit in front and back and in need of lots of work in between but NATIONAL PARTS DEPOT had all the parts we needed and got them to us fast.we were very pleased.

when we got the car it was thought to be a parts car for our other 68bird but instead of being used for that it just needed some new parts. as you will see by looking at our pics it really changed in looks.
