One owner Firebird Sprint OHC

I had asked around the Pontiac sites I go to and they recommended Team Camaro for the restoration questions I was asking.

I have a 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible Sprint OHC 6. I am the second driver original owner and the car has 63k miles. I have been restoring the car for quite a long time and still I am still working on collecting parts and a few dollars to get it painted and some other parts rebuilt.

Hope to meet some people and share some experiences with my first gen GM F-Body.

Yes sir. My father bought the car new and I bought the car from my mother in 1991. She was the first driver of the car and I am the second.

Re: One owner Firebird Sprint OHC

In the early 80's I had a 67 Firebird Convertible with the sprint 6.
I loved that car! Back then parts could be found in the local pick a part and I scored a 4 bbl manifold with a split exhaust for dirt cheap money. I believe I took them off of a tempest. Mine was also a column 3 on the tree. So I put in a Saginaw 4 speed trans. A small holley and that car was a blast to drive.

Re: One owner Firebird Sprint OHC

Welcome Marc! I've owned a Firebird as well. Would you share an engine pic? I've never seen the sprint six and have always wanted to.

Re: One owner Firebird Sprint OHC

Welcome to Team Camaro Marc. We have many Bird owners and a few notable projects going on right now in the builds forum. Birds are always welcome as any good cousin is in any family.

She looks like she is in great road worthy shape. What projects are you working on?

Restored? oh it is faaar from restored and it needs plenty. I was very lucky that these high res pictures turned out so nice and for some reason hid all of the beauty marks. The original paint still shows on the bottom half as they only sprayed the top half in 1986. It needs a full strip down, new rear quarters, a few rust spots fixed and the whole car smoothed over and painted. I am saving back money to do a BC/CC in its original color #87 Windward Blue. For this car (early build Oct 68') Windward Blue was a special order color.

I have seen yours when browsing and it is a beautiful car. You did an amazing restoration!

Yes I do know the differences in the two models but they do share the same tactics and skills to restore them and that is what I am after here at TC. Hopefully I can give back whatever I have learned in the last 30 years.
