Not much to update here, little Bro got Married, moved an hour away, so work is slow going on his bird now.
This is my brother's 69 Firebird 400
The la... Show moretest project at the "Superpinto's" Garage
Curerent plans for it are:
1. Body It has a lot of rust starting around the trunk and rear window, and is need of some fresh paint.
2. Engine The PO blew the original 400, scrapped the block and replaced it with a 350/ 6pack set up. It only has good compression in 6 of the 8 cylinders, so it is rebuild time, and possibly stroke it to somewhere near 400ci so at least in name the car would be correct(not numbers matching though. Might even "help" him get the urge to go with a big block for some real fun ;-)
The body work has begun!
on her way up the ramps- fuel pump is shot from sitting so come-along it is. You can see the bad spots clearly in this pic.
She's up, one last push to the wheel nocks after little bro unhooks the pull chain.
Off comes the Chrome, lights and fragile front end parts Show Less
