Rare 400 RAM-AIR Firebird project car

Just looking at the photos you can feel the brutal desert heat that this Arizona Firebird has been baking in for the last decade or two. Although not rusted away (thanks to it’s dry climate) this Firebird will need all new floors and trunk at a minimum. Seems as though the doors, front fenders, rear quarter panels and cab support members are still in decent shape.

The engine is still there luckily, but has several bent push rods due to a slipped timing chain. Supposedly the block and heads weren’t damaged, but that would be tough to prove until you got the engine out of the car and hot tanked.

It’s a documented RAM-AIR car per the Pontiac Historical Society (PHS). The original color was Autumn Gold (interior and exterior) with the hood blackout option and a center blackout stripe on the rear trunk. A very sharp early Firebird with a ton of potential due to it’s rare power train.  Hope it went to a good home!
