1968 Firebird 400 4-Speed $7500
« on: October 11, 2008, 04:08:53 PM »
Here is a 1968 Firebird 400 4-Speed for sale.  It is a nice car that is a perfect candidate for a restoration.  The car runs and drives great and is mechanically sound.  It just needs a cosmetic restoration. It has the Ram Air Pontiac 400 with the Saginaw 4-speed transmission (Non-Matching numbers). There is some small rust issues on the doors and quarters, but nothing too major.  The interior needs redone, but it is all there.  Car is located here in Ohio.  PM me to ask any questions.

Trust me.... I am trying to gather the money to get it myself.  Maybe I should start a "fund" for me to get my car.

If you get it are you going to paint it black to match the rest of the flock?

Hitman-

That would be the perfect addition to your collection.

My '73 has a 1968 400 and a Saginaw 4-speed.  I didn't realize that was an original factory setup.  I thought someone had pieced it together for my car.  Do you know anymore about that drivetrain combo and the cars it came in?

Thanks,
Tom

Yes, I would paint it black to match the rest of my birds.  As far as the drivetrain.  The 400 Motor came from a Bonneville and the 4-speed saginaw came from a 69 Bird.  If I can sell that 89 Bandit II I have then yes, this 68 is going in my garage.

Well, it is looking like my Bandit II is going to sell, so I think this 1968 is going in my garage.......
