As you can tell from the pictures this 1968 Pontiac Firebird has not been treated well by its fellow flock members. With a two tone paint job of toilet water blue and bird crap white you can tell this Phoenix has been flightless for quite a while.
The car was found by Paul of Ohio when he and a friend were at a friend’s house. The girlfriend mentioned that her dad had an old car out in the barn and took them to see it.
The Firebird was grounded in 1975, and has been sitting in the same spot since. Over the decades it has been abused by chickens and the elements.
Its windshield and back window have been completed whited out, and its interior has been given the bird as well. Its vinyl interior is all there, but covered in layers of nasty filth.
This is a four speed car with the original Pontiac 400 residing under the hood. With some minor work the 400 should be able to let out its fierce wails once again. As for the exterior – it’s going to take hours of power washing and elbow grease scrubbin’ to get it to shine once again.
Paul plans on asking the girlfriend’s dad if he can purchase the car and restore the glory days of this Phoenix. Keep your fingers crossed for Paul, do you think the owner will give the ‘bird to Paul, or simply tell him it’s not for sale?
