That's my point. Forgot to mention: Look at pic #2.

Given that I own a 72 vert, I'd love to give that Firebird a closer look. :-)

Just looked at the car. Current asking price, $3.5k:
  • It is rust free from what can be seen on the outside, but that's because it already went to a bodyshop and received new floor pans. Trunk is fine.
  • Unfortunately, the MORONS at the bodyshop didn't do the job right: It's sagging like hell on the right side. RH quarter and door have 0.5mm clearance. LH is fine. Conclusion: Inner rockers are Swiss cheese. Sad
  • It is a 1971 F-code (302) with a 351C 2V sitting in a barren engine room. RH has a header on it. No carb, steel intake, not plugged, exhaust ports on the LH side completely open without any exhaust manifold.
  • Radiator support has separated from the apron/framerail; seems as if it got pulled out somehow. This is the only damage.
  • RH quarter seam has been Bondo'ed to the rocker panel. As the air vents were out, I got a look inside too - no internal rust behind this area.
  • Both the engine room and the dash have been shot with a HEAVY coating of gloss black. Not pretty, IMO.
  • Surprise of the century: Someone fixed all the rust in the cowl!
  • Shock tower struts were there (and still bolted to the cowl), but someone beat them and ovalized the holes.
  • Seats were recovered in black. Not the right vinyl pattern, but they look good.
  • No top, but the frame is there - it doesn't stand straight; it's bowing into the passenger compartment.
  • Crusty Cragars.
Conclusion: $500 parts car.

  • Shock tower struts were there (and still bolted to the cowl), but someone removed them from the shock towers by beating them off and ovalizing the holes.
  • Seats were recovered in black. Nothing special.
  • No top, but the frame is there - sitting mostly into the seats.
  • Crusty Cragars.
Conclusion: $500 parts car.

Just called him; said he could give me a call when he gets tired of looking at it. For $500, I can have fun stripping it and have another yard sale here on the forum.

I don't suppose it still has the parking brake warning light? If you do wind up partsing it out I'd definitely be interested in that.
